Madelyne Pryor. Ben Reilly. As clones of two of Marvel’s greatest super heroes, they’ve gotten the short end of the stick time and time again. This December, they’ll join forces to take their ultimate revenge in Dark Web, an epic new Marvel Comics crossover involving Spider-Man, the X-Men, Venom, Ms. Marvel, and more! The saga will fan the embers of the iconic Inferno crossover and pack an emotional punch that pays off decades of Marvel storytelling. Fans have already gotten a sneak peek at what’s to come and now, it’s time to see just how things will continue to spiral downward for your favorite heroes come January!
Dark Web will unfold in the pages of Zeb Wells’ run on Amazing Spider-Man where he’ll be joined by artist Ed McGuinness for the duration of the story arc. In Amazing Spider-Man #17 and #18, Peter Parker is reeling from the opening battles of DARK WEB and now finds himself in Limbo. Peter not only has to find his way back home, but he has to do it in a truly hellish fashion. And who is shadowing him? As if the normal run-of-the-mill demons of Limbo weren’t enough… Spider-Man finds himself facing a small army of demonized versions of his rogues’ gallery! Can he make it home to stop Chasm and the Goblin Queen?! Featuring covers by John Romita Jr.!
Fighting his inner demons, Norman Osborn attempts a fresh start as a super hero in Chris Cantwell and Lan Medina’s thought-provoking Gold Goblin limited series. In Gold Goblin #3, Norman Osborn now finds himself face-to-face with his own sins after battling Chasm as Queen Goblin makes her terrifying return! Taurin Clarke provides the cover.
Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Hardy are trapped in Limbo and at the mercy of BELASCO THE SWORDSMAN in Jed MacKay and Vincenzo Carratu’s Mary Jane & Black Cat #3. As if that wasn’t bad enough, they’re also keeping secrets from one another! Somehow, MJ’s got powers and there’s a new (old) man in Felicia’s life – and if they don’t come clean with one another, they could be stuck in Limbo FOREVER! With a cover by J. Scott Campbell.
Dark Web will also leave a profound impact on Al Ewing, Ram V., and Bryan Hitch’s hit run on Venom. In Venom #14, Dylan Brock finds himself renewed and reinvigorated by his descent into the symbiote hive but Bedlam has come calling again – looking to finish what it started by killing Dylan and Venom once and for all. Luckily, an old friend is around to lend a crimson-clad hand… (And it isn’t Spider-Man!)
Caught in the explosive events unfolding across New York – including a face-to-face confrontation with Chasm himself – Kamala Khan finds herself teleported to Limbo, the domain of the Goblin Queen Madelyne Pryor in Dark Web: Ms. Marvel #2 by Sabir Pirzada and Francesco Mortarino and a cover by Marco Checchetto! As the city descends into chaos that threatens everything and everyone Kamala holds dear, she’s left with no choice but to call on Miles Morales for a helping hand!
And Madelyne Pryor’s complex place within the Summers family results in a dramatic confrontation that will go down in X-Men history in Gerry Duggan and Rod Reis’ Dark Web: X-Men #3! When Jean Grey returned from the dead, Scott Summers left his wife and child to be with her. The fact that she was revealed to be a clone of Jean didn’t make her feel any better. Maybe the cold sting of revenge can? With a cover by Phil Noto.
