Marvel's solicitations for August bore some details about the Spider-Geddon event the publisher teaser late last week.
Based on the two issues of Edge of Spider-Geddon that were solicited, it looks like Spider-Geddon will be styled after 2014's Spider-Verse, a storyline that culled the population of those with spider powers across the multiverse. Considering the ominous title of 2018's Spider-event, things aren't looking too good for the surviving Spider-Men and Women.
The first two issues of Edge of Spider-Geddon bring back SP//dr and Spider-Punk. The former, aka Peni Parker, is a young girl whose parents built a spider-powered bio-mech suit. After being murdered for their scientific achievements, their daughter is the only one with a bio-signature that can pilot the suit. Along with her mentor, the Daredevil of her universe, Peni takes on corruption and villainy in Tokyo as SP//dr.
The Anarchic Spider-Punk first appeared in a short story in Spider-Verse #2 in which he murdered President Osborne with pure punk rock and a whole mess of amps. This story ended on a pretty steep cliffhanger which has yet to be addressed.
While Spider-Punk, aka Hobie Parker, was a member of the interdimensional team of the Web Warriors our Spidey put together (and is a skin in the upcoming PS4 Spider-Man game), SP//dr hasn't been seen since Spider-Verse's end four years ago.
Check out the full solicitation and cover images for Edge of Spider-Geddon #1 and 2 below, and check back with CBR soon for more on the event.
