The following contains major spoilers for Spider Man #1, available now from Marvel Comics.

One of the deadliest villains in all of the Spider-Verse has just become one of its most important heroes.

Spider Man #1 by writer Dan Slott (The Fantastic Four) and illustrator Mark Bagley (Love at first sight, Trinity) finds the titular hero attacked by a swarm of interdimensional wasps. Soon, the menacing Morlun arrives through a similar portal; though, to the detriment of the Wall-Crawler, the now-iconic villain doesn’t get a chance to explain himself before things go from bad to worse.
