The Amazing Spider-Man: Full Circle already looks to be one of the most wide-ranging Spider-Man stories in recent memory. And considering how often the character has jumped through realities lately, that's saying something. The upcoming title, by a host of Marvel Comics' top creators, promises to take the wall-crawler around the globe, and potentially through the multiverse.
The synopsis and debut cover suggest the miniseries may take some of its cues from the two recent films. Spider-Man: Far From Home and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Around The World
The title's synopsis reveals Peter Parker will leave his usual stomping grounds New York City, in response to a summons from S.H.I.E.L.D., and set out on a globe-spanning adventure, with no less than "the future of all mankind" at stake: "Who is the mysterious prisoner in the steel box who keeps propelling the wall-crawler onward?" There are some obvious echoes on the current Far From Home.
Like that film, Full Circle promises a team-up between Spider-Man and Nick Fury that leads to the hero traveling the world. The cover also indicates Spider-Man will don a black stealth variant of his costume, much as he did in Far From Home. Of note, the Nick Fury depicted on the cover isn't the modern canon Nick Fury Jr., but rather the original version of the super-spy. This could place the story earlier in the history of the Marvel Universe, as that version of Fury has been operating as the replacement for the Watcher as the Unseen, following the events of Original Sin. Or this could even turn out not to be Nick Fury, but rather a stand-in, such as a Life Model Decoy.
But what about the werewolves?
The cover features multiple versions of Spider-Man, including a werewolf. In addition, Fury is shown fighting a force of werewolves. This could either be the result of a werewolf outbreak or a visit to Earth-7085, where Spider-Man is, yes, a werewolf. An inter-dimensional trip isn't out of the question, Peter Porker, aka Spider-Ham, is referenced in the synopsis and depicted on the cover.
Spider-Ham's profile has risen in the past year with Into the Spider-Verse, and his involvement in the story hints that the events of Full Circle won't be limited to the primary Marvel Universe.
Hopping around realities could explain the apparent werewolf Mary Jane Watson on the cover. The comic also promises a version of Wolverine will appear at some point. While that's not the most radical element -- it's Wolverine, he shows up everywhere -- the comic doesn't specify which version of the fan-favorite X-Man it is. The story could recall the original Spider-Man vs. Wolverine one-shot, in which the pair came to blows while Spider-Man was on a trip to Europe.
Debuting in October, The Amazing Spider-Man: Full Circle is written by Nick Spencer, Jonathan Hickman, Gerry Duggan, Al Ewing, Chip Zdarsky, Kelly Thompson and Jason Aaron, and illustrated by by Chris Bachalo, Chris Sprouse, Greg Smallwood, Michael Allred, Rachael Stott, Valerio Schiti, Cameron Stewart and Mark Bagley.
