Madelyne Pryor and Ben Reilly Unleash their revenge in Dark Web!

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.

Spider-Man, the X-Men, Ms. Marvel, Venom, and more are ensnared in Chasm and the Goblin Queen’s Dark Web

This December, the two most famous wronged clones of the Marvel Universe will team up to take back what’s theirs! Madelyne Pryor, AKA the Goblin Queen, and Ben Reilly, now known as Chasm, will reignite an Inferno that will send Spider-Man and the X-Men into a spiral in DARK WEB! And they won’t be the only ones feeling the flames of Maddie and Ben’s revenge! In addition to the launch of the opening one-shot, December will bring on a series of tie-in issues and limited series and fans can get the full scoop right now!

The saga will be bookended by two one-shots, subtitled DUSK and DAWN, written by current Amazing Spider-Man scribe Zeb Wells and drawn by superstar artist Adam KubertDark Web #1 will reveal the true scope of Madelyne and Ben’s wicked alliance, what it means for Spider-Man and the X-Men, and the surprising role Venom will play. The sun is setting, dusk is approaching, and it’s going to be a long night. Featuring a wraparound variant by Ryan Stegman.

Zeb Wells will continue the story in Amazing Spider-Man #15 and Amazing Spider-Man #16 with legendary artist Ed McGuinness. Peter Parker will have his hands full with back to back showdowns, starting with Venom. Find out exactly why Venom is helping Chasm and then, it’s time for the main event. That’s right, it’s Peter Parker vs. Ben Reilly, no-holds-barred in the craziest battle you’ve ever seen! Chasm secures his place in Spidey’s rogues’ gallery…as the one who finally vanquishes Peter Parker?! John Romita Jr. provides covers.

December will also see the launch of Dark Web: X-Men, a three-issue limited series by X-Men writer Gerry Duggan and acclaimed New Mutants artist Rod Reis with covers by Phil Noto. In Dark Web: X-Men #1, chaos reigns in the streets of New York City as demon hordes pour forth from the realm of Limbo…a realm that until recently was ruled by Magik.  A realm now ruled by Cyclops’ ex. Also, Havok’s ex.  Also, a clone of Jean. The X-Men wade into the fray by taking on some of their darker history as the Goblin Queen returns for vengeance! The not-so-happy reunions continue in Dark Web: X-Men #2. Some reunions – like those with an evil ex who rules a dimension of demons – are not so great. Sometimes even having your AMAZING FRIENDS at your side isn’t enough to save things.

Currently a supporting character in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel will also have a significant story arc during the event in her own limited series, Dark Web: Ms. Marvel. From Sabir Pirzada, known for his work on Marvel’s Voices and Ms. Marvel on Disney+, and artist Francesco Mortarino in his exciting Marvel Comics debut comes a bold and badass new vision of Ms. Marvel! Fresh off her first few weeks working as an intern at Oscorp, Ms. Marvel finds herself as the last line of defense against a bunch of deadly and dangerous experiments going haywire thanks to Maddie and Ben’s demonic machinations! Things get even worse when Kamala finds herself in Limbo, with no choice but to fight her way out! Marco Checchetto provides the cover.

In Al Ewing and Bryan Hitch’s Venom #14, secrets are revealed! Madeylne Pryor has plans for Eddie Brock and the symbiotes he can control – in this issue, she and her new ally CHASM bring them all to bear! Unwittingly turned into a slathering and terrifying monster you might recognize, Eddie Brock’s fears from the last year stand fully realized in this turning point for Al Ewing, Ram V, and Bryan Hitch’s enthralling run on the title!

Writer Christopher Cantwell and artist Lan Medina continue to explore Norman Osborn’s heroic journey in Gold Goblin #2 featuring a cover by Taurin Clarke. The thought-provoking limited series will prove that being a super hero isn’t for everyone… After facing Chasm in Dark Web #1, Norman Osborn will have to face another terrifying opponent in this issue who might cut Norman’s new super hero career short!

MacKay will be joined by artist Vincenzo Carratù—an up-and-coming talent making his exciting Marvel Comics debut. In this explosive and kick-ass limited series, Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Hardy find themselves thrown into one another’s paths and then into LIMBO! But SOMETHING HAS CHANGED WITH MJ!
