A bite from a radioactive spider forever set a young Peter Parker on a path that would transform him into the greatest super hero the world has ever known, but that’s not the whole story. This July, the New York Times Bestselling Creative team of Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos uncover the Earth-shattering truth about that destined encounter in July’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #4, a tie-in to Original Sin!
On that fateful day, Peter Parker wasn’t the only one whose life changed forever. The radioactive spider that created Spider-Man bit someone else too. Someone who was led down a different path – a darker path.
“Why was this kept from Peter?” asks writer Dan Slott, in an interview with Marvel.com. “A good question to ask is ‘Who is keeping this from Peter?’ What parties would know about the existence of this person? Why haven’t we seen her all this time since the events of Amazing Fantasy #15?”
“If you’re going to do a big story like Original Sin, where everybody’s got such a big secret,” Slott continued. “You go big or you go home.”
All will be revealed when Silk’s story is fully revealed as the Amazing Spider-Man crashes headlong into Original Sin! And seeds sown here blossom into cataclysmic results for the webslinger in the highly anticipated Spider-Verse later this year! With Peter Parker’s life about to be turned upside down, no fan can afford to miss the first appearance of Silk this July in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #4!
