In this installment, we continue to look at the main Spider-Verse event.
In this installment, we will start looking at Spider-Verse proper.
When the comic book scholars of the future look back on Spider-Verse they may view the crossover as a disappointment. I can see that. There really isn’t much meat on the bone here. Most issues are generally the same:
- introduce or revisit a Spider-Man from an alternate dimension
- Inheritors attack
- multiversal Spider-Men show up to help
- some live, some die, the survivors escape
- Inheritors move onto the next dimension in search of another meal
Pretty standard and repetitive stuff. But to take this view, is to miss the whole fun of Spider-Verse. The interaction of all these Spiders new and old amongst themselves and the Inheritors. Checking in on old favorites. Seeing the fate of Spider-Men you grew up watching on TV. I’m sure we’ll have Spider-Man multiverse crossovers again in the future (*cough*Secret Wars*cough*) but likely never to this degree again.
