Marvel Announces Spider-Island!

The previously mysterious summer event teased by Dan Slott in his interviews has finally been announced...Spider-Island will start in August after Infestation starts in April setting things up. 16,000 Manhattan Island residents including as per the tease in the final panels of the Amazing Spider-Man Point One issue, Mary Jane Watson, have Peter's powers. This includes some superheroes as well apparently.

I know the premise of this will probably turn some people off but I'm really excited about it.

Kind of seems similar to the Hulked out heroes concept...

Dammit, I was hoping this was about some new Theme Park attraction...

Re: Marvel Announces Spider-Island!

My first thought was that this was a bad '70s horror movie with William Shatner.



16,000 Spider-Men? Jameson is just going to flip.

Re: Marvel Announces Spider-Island!

Jonah and Spider-Man have been on kind of subdued terms since Marla died, but yeah Jonah is supposed to take drastic action. Unlike the Hulked Out Heroes this is supposed to have actual consequences for Peter by the end of the arc.

Re: Marvel Announces Spider-Island!

I wonder if this is going to be a crossover event ala Chaos War or Shadowland or if it will be confined to the Spider-books?

Re: Marvel Announces Spider-Island!

^ So far it's contained to just Amazing. Infestation kicks things off in April as mentioned above. It's a Spider-Man event but it does have impact on other heroes, but not in their books.
