Spider-Verse is a comic book series issued by Marvel Comics since 2014.[1] Its first major event/storyline started on November 5[2] in The Amazing Spider-Man (2014) #9 along with an individual issue[3] named Spider-Verse Team-Up. This event took 20 publications to be completed[4] and featured nearly every variant of Spider-People and Spider-Man that had appeared in the comics and other media in the over fifty years since Spider-Man's creation, all under attack by Morlun and his family, the Inheritors. This first major storyline, however, was preceded by a full-flagged Spider-Verse series[5] titled Edge of the Spider-Verse, which served to introduce some new characters that would lead the event, such as Spider-Gwen[6] and Miguel O’Hara.[7]

The comic book series has received generally positive reviews and proved to be one of the most popular comics related to Spider-Man universe in recent history. Following the conclusion of the event in Amazing Spider-Man #14, several characters introduced in it such as Spider-Gwen became prominent figures in Marvel Comics, with some featured in titles of their own. Several of the Spider-Men from this event reunited for the second volume of Spider-Verse set during the Secret Wars and continued to operate together in the Web Warriors series. The 2017 event "Venomverse" was structured in a similar way to Spider-Verse, featuring alternative versions of Venom instead. In 2018, a direct sequel to Spider-Verse titled Spider-Geddon was released.[8] A conclusion to the Spider-Verse storyline—titled End of the Spider-Verse—ran from 2022 to 2023, following the release of an ongoing Edge of Spider-Verse series which introduced even more new alternate versions of Spider-Man.[9]

Spider-Verse also served as the primary inspiration behind many other stories in external media centered around bringing together alternate versions of Spider-Man. This includes seasons 3 and 4 of the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series, as well as the 2018 animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and its sequels Across the Spider-Verse (2023) and Beyond the Spider-Verse (TBA), and the 2021 Marvel Cinematic Universe film Spider-Man: No Way Home, the latter featuring three of the live-action movie versions of Peter Parker.

Publication history

The premise of a crossover was conceived by Dan Slott, who wrote the core part of the story in The Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 3) #9–15, after working on the 2010 video game Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions which featured the mainstream, Ultimate, Noir and 2099 versions of Spider-Man.[10] The last two episodes of Spider-Man: The Animated Series, about multiple Spider-Men going across dimensions fighting villains, also served as inspiration.[11] Slott's idea was originally postponed to make room for the 2012 Spider-Men storyline by Brian Michael Bendis, which featured the first meeting of the original Peter Parker, and Miles Morales of the Ultimate Universe.[10] Beginning in August 2014, the event was preceded by two new issues of the cancelled The Superior Spider-Man, issues of Spider-Man 2099 and a five-issue run of one-shots, all under the Edge of Spider-Verse banner.

In a Japanese anime-like universe, Aaron Aikman uses his spider-based powers in an advanced suit of armor to become the Spider-Man. Years ago, Aaron's old lover Kaori Ikegami found her daughter brain dead after a car accident. Kaori became a recluse, but has now returned claiming that her daughter is awake and possessed by something. Kaori's daughter forces her to kidnap people, possessing those people in turn, and now the possessed are assembling into an army. Aaron suits up, and begins to head out the door. But Morlun appears, and tells him that "this is the end of your story."[23]

Just as the Exiles' Miguel is about to make the dimensional jump, Morlun arrives and kills him in front of the Earth-616 Miguel. Miguel realizes he must find Peter Parker.[26]

Edge of Spider-Verse: Amazing Spider-Man

Billy Braddock a.k.a. Spider-UK is one of the newest recruits of the Captain Britain Corps. Scanning other universes, he sees the deaths of many alternate Spider-Men by the Inheritors. Daemos' brother Jennix detects Billy, who immediately cuts the scanner feed. As Saturnyne and Lady Roma discuss their concerns about the Incursions that are destroying entire universes, Spider-UK tries to tell them about the killings of the Spiders across the multiverse. Saturnyne rebuffs him, but a sympathetic Roma gives Billy a talisman that allows him to travel through the Web of Life in order to save the remaining Spiders.[27]

On Earth-982, Daemos attacks Spider-Girl (Mayday Parker). Her boyfriend Wes, Peter, and Mary Jane seemingly sacrifice themselves in order to save her and her baby brother Ben. Spider-UK and Old Man Spider arrive via portal and take her and Benjy away.[28]

Main plot

On Earth-616, Spider-Man and Silk meet with Spider-Woman, Spider-Girl, Spider-Man 2099, Spider-UK, Spider-Girl of Earth-982, and Spider-Ham. Spider-UK explains they are the Spiders of other dimensions and that all the strands of the Great Web are converging on Earth-616 Peter. Spider-UK tells him Morlun's elder brother Daemos is coming to Earth-616 and all of them head into a portal to another dimension. Peter Parker's clone Kaine Parker (a.k.a. the Scarlet Spider) and other members of the New Warriors are beaten down by Daemos. Kaine stabs Daemos through the chest with his arm spikes, and Daemos realizes that Kaine can hurt him because he is the current receptacle of the Other. Old Man Spider-Man, the Bullet Points Spider-Man, and the Spider-Woman of Earth-65 arrive. Daemos kills the Bullet Points Spider-Man, but the others escape through a portal. They join other Spider-Men gathered on Earth-13, home of Cosmic Spider-Man who never lost the Enigma Force. On Earth-001, the Inheritors gather at a dinner table laden with crippled Spider-Totems. The siblings' father Solus reveals he has known all along where the Bride, the Other, and the Scion are located, then asks his children what the Web of Life and Destiny means to them.[29]

On Earth-1610, Miles Morales and Jessica Drew are attacked by Verna's Hounds, but are saved by the Superior Spider-Man, the Assassin Spider-Man, and Spider-Punk. On Earth-13, Spider-UK gets a reading on Superior Spider-Man's team. Old Man Spider-Man gives Spider-Man one of their devices to travel the Great Web, but insists Silk remain behind, refusing to say why. Silk waits secretly follows the team through the portal, arriving on Earth-928, where Peter is horrified to see the Superior Spider-Man in charge. Old Man Spider-Man explains that Kaine and Silk are the receptacles of Totems called the Other and the Bride. Daemos emerges from a portal and kills the Spider-Cyborg, but the Superior Spider-Man manages to kill Daemos. Spider-Man 2099 uses future technology to put Daemos' corpse in stasis. A second Daemos shows up and kills Old Man Spider-Man and the Assassin Spider-Man. Kaine and Ben Reilly of Earth-94 deduce that the Inheritors are clones, and Ben opens a portal to the Inheritors' home base. The Ultimate Spider-Woman, also a clone of Peter Parker, joins them. Silk steals Spider-Man's portal device and opens a portal while attracting the Inheritors' attention. The surviving Spiders regroup on Earth-13.[30]

Solus mocks Morlun's fear of the Spider-Man of Earth-616. Morlun says he is concerned about the prophecy and that "the Other," "the Bride," and "the Scion" have all manifested. Solus agrees that they could end the Inheritors' reign. On Earth-13, Peter and Otto fight over who is better suited to lead the Spider-Army, and Spider-Man realizes that Otto thinks Peter is from before the mind-swap took place, not after. Spider-Man challenges the Superior Spider-Man to kill him, and the Superior Spider-Man backs down, unwilling to create a time paradox. The Superior Spider-Man reveals he has located the Inheritors' homeworld, but feels that they need a stronger army. Peter asks Spider-Girl, Spider-Woman (Gwen Stacy), Miles Morales, and the Animated Spider-Man to help gather recruits. Morlun and Jennix emerge from portals, killing a version of Captain Spider and Spider-Monkey. Captain Universe Peter Parker of Earth-13 destroys Jennix with the Enigma Force. Solus arrives and reveals that the Enigma Force is pure life force energy on which the Inheritors feed, devouring Cosmic Spider-Man. Morlun kidnaps Benjy Parker from Spider-Girl of Earth-982, declaring him to be the receptacle of the Scion.[31]

The Spiders charge Solus, who easily kills the Prince of Arachne and Arachnosaur. Morlun takes Benjy to Earth-001. Spider-Woman of Earth-65 and Spider-Girl bring in the Mangaverse Spider-Man, Spider-Man J, and Takuya Yamashiro of Earth-51778. Takuya charges Solus, but Solus destroys his giant robot Leopardon. The Safe Zone is lost, and the Spiders open a portal to a random world in order to escape.

Silk, on the run from Brix and Bora, arrives on Earth-3145, a radioactive wasteland. When Brix steps out of the portal, he is nearly killed by the radiation before being pulled to safety. Realizing that the irradiated world is off-limits to the Inheritors, Silk covers herself in web for protection. Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew) infiltrates the Inheritors' base by posing as her Earth-001 self. The Master Weaver reveals a secret rebellion against his captors, giving Jessica scrolls with knowledge of the Other, the Bride, and the Scion. Morlun arrives and gives Benjy to Brix and Bora. Jessica uses her damaged transporter to send the scrolls to Peter before Morlun discovers them. The Spider-Army arrives on Earth-8847, where Spider-Man receives the scrolls and is contacted by Silk. Arriving on Earth-3145, the Spiders follow Cindy to Sims Tower and find the bunker designed to hide them from the Inheritors. Inside, Silk was joined by Earth-3145's spider-totem Uncle Ben.[32]

On Earth-3145, Uncle Ben was bitten by the spider and became Spider-Man, but gave up after the deaths of Aunt May and Peter and accepted Ezekiel Sims' offer to stay in the bunker. The Earth was later destroyed by nuclear weapons, leaving Uncle Ben the last man alive. The Superior Spider-Man realizes that Spider-Man is from his future, meaning that Otto will eventually lose everything. Spider-Girl reveals that she can read the mystical scrolls due to her original powers coming from a cult that worships the Master Weaver. She reads a prophecy that the Inheritors will lose to the Spiders, unless by sacrificing the Other, the Bride, and the Scion, which will stop new Spider-Totems from existing. The second scroll contains the life story of Karn, which the Spiders home can turn him to their side.

On Earth-802, Kaine, Jessica Drew of Earth-1610, and Ben Reilly destroy Jennix's cloning facilities, at the cost of Ben's life. Spider-Man contacts Kaine, who reveals he is on Earth-001. Spider-Man orders the away teams to rendezvous there. Kaine transforms into a massive Man-Spider and impales Solus, killing him. An enraged Morlun stabs Kaine through the head.[33]

Joined by redeemed Karn, the Spiders head to Earth-001 for the final battle against the Inheritors. Miguel O'Hara and Lady Spider arrive with a repaired Leopardon. Spider-Ham disguises himself as Benjy, allowing Ben Parker to take Benjy back to his home reality and robbing the Inheritors off the Scion. The Superior Spider-Man kills the Master Weaver. The Inheritors are exiled to Earth-3145, where they are forced to hide in the Sims bunker to avoid death by radiation, while feeding off the radioactive spiders.[34]

Tie-in issues

Scarlet Spiders

Earth-802 is ruled by Jennix of the Inheritors. Ben Reilly of Earth-94, the Scarlet Spider (Kaine), and Jessica Drew, the Black Widow of Earth-1610 travel there to learn the secret of his cloning process and gain access to the Baxter Building.[35] Jennix reveals that he has attempted to clone numerous Spider-Men from across the Multiverse to use as food stock, but has been unable to clone the essence of the spider which the Inheritors feast on.[36] Ben Reilly destroys the device which allows the Inheritors to transmit their life force into new bodies, sacrificing himself in the process. Kaine is furious and steals Jessica's teleporter, then heads to Earth-001 to kill the Inheritors.[37]

Spider-Man 2099

The Six-Armed Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2099 and steam punk Lady Spider return to 2099 to dissect the clone body of Daemos for clues on how to defeat his brethren. Followed to the future by reborn Daemos, the Six Armed Spider-Man is killed before Miguel traps the Inheritor in a stasis field. Daemos kills himself to escape the trap, so Spider-Man 2099 and Lady Spider teleport back to the safe zone of Earth-13, only to find that it has been destroyed by Solus.[38] They find Leopardon and transport the mecha to Lady Spider's home on Earth-803. After the Six Men of Sinestry attack, Spider-Man 2099 finds uranium in Doctor Octopus' backpack and use it to get Leopardon fully operational for the final Inheritor showdown.[38]

Spider-Verse Team-Up

On Earth-94, Ben Reilly is still operating as Spider-Man. He is fighting Vultures sent by Verna when Old Man Spider and Spider-Ham arrive. The Spiders are paralyzed by poisoned knives thrown by the Vultures. Ben manages to break free, due to having fought a similar type of control when he was bonded with the Carnage symbiote. The distraction is enough for Old Man Spider and Spider-Ham to break free escape to Earth-13 with Ben.[39]

On Earth-21205, Verna and her Hounds arrive to hunt Hobgoblin (the identity of this world's Peter Parker). Spider-Woman (Gwen Stacy) arrives to help him. Both shocked, since Spider-Gwen let her Peter die, while Hobgoblin Parker became a vigilante after letting his Gwen die. The two are surrounded and Hobgoblin sacrifices himself to save Gwen and allow her to escape.[40]

Karn comes to Earth-3123 to kill the spider-totem of this reality, where Aunt May was bitten by a radioactive spider and became Spider-Ma'am. Karn is stopped by Spider-Girl, Spider-UK, Spider-Punk, Spider-Man: India, and Ashley Barton of Earth-807128. The Spiders, after revealing intimate details about his history, convince Karn to join them. The Spiders allow him to drain a non-lethal amount of life-force from each of them to satiate his hunger and Karn agrees to join them against the Inheritors.[41]


Spider-Woman followed Silk and Spider-Man Noir to Earth-19231 where they're attacked by Brix and Bora. Spider-Man Noir is wounded, and the trio takes him home to Earth-90214 to recover. Jessica is then sent by Spider-Man to Earth-001 to gather more information on the Inheritors, while Spider-Girl and Spider-Gwen stay to watch Silk, who sneaks away from them.[42] Spider-Woman infiltrates the Inheritors' headquarters by posing as the Jessica Drew of Earth-001, who is also Morlun's lover.[43] Silk is cornered by Brix and Bora, but escapes to nuclear apocalypse Earth-3145. Brix and Bora cannot survive in this universe and Silk enters the Sim bunker, only to find that universe's Spider totem - Uncle Ben Parker. Jessica Drew is invited on a date with Morlun, and uses her pheromones to confuse Morlun and sneaks into the Master Weaver's lair. The weaver gives her an ancient prophesy that contains the key to defeating the Inheritors. Spider-Woman uses her broken teleporter to send the scrolls to Spider-Man.[44] Spider-Gwen, Spider-Girl and Silk arrive to rescue Jessica Drew and help Jessica Drew of Earth-001 become the new benevolent dictator, since all the factions are fighting and only she can unite them.[45]


After battle, the remainder of the Spider-Army say their goodbyes. Spider-Girl (Mayday Parker) returns home to Earth-982 and finds Uncle Ben Parker from Earth-3145, who reveals that Mary Jane and Wes survived Daemos' attack. Uncle Ben decides to stay on Earth-982 and live out the remainder of his life as Mayday's and Benjy's grandfather. Mayday is given her father's old costume and renames herself Spider-Woman. When only Spider-UK, Spider-Woman (Gwen Stacy), Spider-Man 2099, and the Spiders from Earth-616 remain, their Spider-Sense collectively overwhelm them with agony. Karn realizes someone is tampering with the Web of Life and Destiny, and they find the Superior Spider-Man hacking at the Web with Morlun's dagger. Aware of his destiny, Superior Spider-Man rejects his fate, having figured out that Peter Parker from his universe is from the future. Karn says that at any moment he could erase them from existence, while Spider-UK shouts they are losing portals home. Peter tells the Spider-Woman of Earth-65 and Spider-Man 2099 to head to their home dimensions before it is too late, while he leads the Earth-616 Spiders against the Superior Spider-Man. The Superior Spider-Man battles with Spider-Woman and Spider-Girl, who sees the totemic script on Morlun's dagger. Spider-Girl immobilizes the Superior Spider-Man's arm and reads that there will always be a Master Weaver at the center of the Great Web and that anyone can take the place of the current Master Weaver, but only death can free the Master Weaver from their sacred obligation. Karn states that he finally knows who the Master Weaver is and unmasks himself, revealing that he and the Master Weaver are one and the same. Analyzing the Master Weaver's armor, Karn notices a slot that fits the prongs of the spear he made as a child, which acts as a key to open the mechanism. Karn explain that the flow of time differs in Earth-001, using the co-existence of Spider-Man and the Superior Spider-Man as an example of being able to exist in two places at once. Karn has consumed enough Totems for their essence to enable him to take the Master Weaver's place, stating that this shall be his penance and, hopefully, his salvation. Spider-Man defeats the Superior Spider-Man who feigns surrender, but puts his holoram of Anna Marconi on a 100-day standby. Karn says that in time he can fix the damage to the Great Web and prepares to return the Superior Spider-Man to the past. Spider-Man pushes Otto through the portal into the aftermath of the chronoton implosion that time-displaced him in the first place, his memory of the recent events erased. Karn remarks that his family can subsist off the life force of any animal and that Earth-3145 is teeming with mutant spiders. He also reveals that Spider-UK's home Earth-833 was destroyed by an Incursion and the Earth-616 Spiders console him. Spider-UK volunteers to travel the Multiverse and protect the worlds that lost their Spider-Totems, and Spider-Girl offers to join him. Karn dubs them the Warriors of the Great Web and charges them with helping him repair the severed threads. Karn opens a portal to Earth-616 and the Spiders bid farewell. Karn offers the Web-Warriors a tour of the Inheritor's palace, while unbeknown to them, a hand erupts from the Other's corpse, revealing that Kaine is still alive. On Earth-616, Spider-Man says that for a long time he did not feel ready to run his own company, but after leading the Spider-Army he feels ready for anything.[46]


The main storyline received generally positive reviews, with critics praising the action, art, pacing, and story. However, the ending received some criticism for it being anticlimactic.

According to Comic Book Roundup, Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 3) #9 received a score of 8.3/10 based on 32 reviews,[47] issue #10 received a score of 7.6/10 based on 16 reviews,[48] issue #11 received a score of 8.2/10 based on 16 reviews,[49] issue #12 received a score of 7.9/10 based on 20 reviews,[50] issue #13 received a score of 7.6/10 based on 15 reviews,[51] issue #14 received a score of 7.4/10 based on 21 reviews,[52] and issue #15 received a score of 7/10 based on 18 reviews.[53]

In 2015, Bleeding Cool highlighted a "common complaint" of the 648-page hardcover collection: "while the book gives a reading order to read the crossover, that order is not reflected in the book. Instead the individual titles are grouped together, rather than the Infinity Hardcover solution of presenting them in reading order. And because there are no page numbers following the actual reading order can be very hard. Advice given on reviews is to buy some post it notes and insert them throughout the volume for the beginning of individual issues and then refer to the reading order at the beginning".[54]


Secret Wars (2015)

As part of the 2015 Secret Wars storyline, a Spider-Verse miniseries was featured on the domain of the Battleworld called Arachnia,[55] starring Spider-Gwen, Spider-Ham, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Man: India, Spider-UK and Anya Corazon. After the conclusion of Secret Wars, the team renamed itself and was featured in a new series called Web Warriors (a name that was coined by Peter Parker from the Ultimate Spider-Man TV series during the original Spider-Verse).[56]

Spider-Geddon (2018)

Main article: Spider-Geddon

Spider-Verse (2019)

Spider-Verse is a 2019 comic book limited series published by Marvel Comics featuring multiple alternative versions of Spider-Man that had appeared in various media, and his supporting cast. The series is much shorter than the original one lasting 6 issues and having no tie-ins.[60]
