Marvel introduces Web-Weaver, new openly gay Spider-Man variant character
Marvel has introduced the new openly gay Spider-Man named Web-Weaver who will be appearing first in the anthology series Edge of Spider-Verse.
The character will appear in an issue of Edge of Spider-Verse which will serve as a prelude to the third chapter of the Spider-Verse saga that Marvel has been telling for a number of years already starting with Spider-Verse followed by Spider-Geddon and now End of the Spider-Verse.
The character will debut in Edge of Spider-Verse # 5 with writer Steve Foxe. Here’s what the writer posted on Twitter about this new openly gay Spider-Man…
Something I realized immediately when conceiving Web-Weaver is that he can’t–and shouldn’t–represent ALL gay men. No single character can.
His fearlessly femme identity is central to who he is, but it’s not the STORY…which you can experience for yourself in September!

And the character’s design was also done by Kris Anka who previously worked on X-Men and also did the punk rock redesign for Dazzler from a few years ago…
