Spider-Smasher is headed to Spider-Man
Revealed last month in a cryptic teaser, there’s a new Spider hero on the horizon. Dubbed SPIDER-SMASHER, the mysterious warrior from the future will debut in the pages of May’s Miles Morales: Spider-Man #38.
Created by writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Christopher Allen, Spider-Smasher will play a vital role in an upcoming story that sees Miles Morales on a dangerous inter-dimensional quest.
The encounter will have a profound impact on Miles when it’s revealed that Spider-Smasher is none other than a grown-up and extremely badass version of his baby sister, Billie Morales! Also known as Capitán Billie, Miles will meet her when he finds himself in the Empire of the Spider, a timeline where Miles’ clone Selim was victorious, and the only thing standing in the evil Spider-Man’s way is a rebellion led by Billie!
Artist Christopher Allen told press earlier this week:
“It blows my mind that, not only do I get to draw a chapter in one of the greatest sagas of all time, but I get to add something this significant to the story of one of my favorite characters!”
Fans can see SPIDER-SMASHER in action now in a series of variant covers for the issue, including one showcasing Allen’s original design sheet for the character. For more information, visit Marvel.com.
