It looks like Marvel will continue the Spider-Verse event into Warzone! this May. The Spider characters from all over the many universes and realities will bring the battle to Morlun in Spider-Verse #1. We get to see a team comprised of Spider-man Noir, Spider-Girl, Spider-Ham as well as Spider-Gwen (couldn’t they have been more creative with the Spider-Man UK and Spider-Man India?) in a spider free for all.
Senior Editor Nick Lowe had this to say about the event:
“The SPIDER-VERSE event in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN brought you the first team of Spider-Men,but not the last! Here we build and expand upon the Spider-Verse story in insane new ways!”
Let’s see what happens, eh faithful readers? Make yours Marvel, if you want.

Marvel continues to unwind the Marvel universe. It’s now down to a few worlds where the battles will supposedly redefine the comic-world. Battleworld is now composed of several quite campy worlds. If you’re interested in knowing more, check out the interactive map below.
New York, NY — February 3rd, 2015 — The Marvel Universe is no more. There is now only Battleworld and Marvel.com is the only place where you will be able to learn about the building blocks of the new Marvel Universe.
Welcome to the Secret Wars Interactive Battleworld Map! Strange and Mysterious worlds from Marvel’s deep history continue to forge into the new landscape of the Marvel Universe – Battleworld – and Marvel’s Interactive map will guide fans through this strange new land.
Updated continuously until the start of Secret Wars, the interactive map features the most recent details of where these new dominions of Battleworld originated from.
Today’s update includes the following new dominions of Battleworld:
Marvel, as many of us know by now, is blowing up the Marvel universe with the incredibly innovative and groundbreaking Secret Wars NEW and Battleworld. (It’s so hard to chew my breakfast with my tongue shoved so far into my cheek.) To help nurture this “End of days” story arc, Marvel is offering Secret Wars #0 and All-New, All-Different Avengers FCBD. For those of us that enjoy a handful of Marvel’s titles, this is a sad time. I would like nothing more than to see the new Disney-Marvel universe implode and then explode into oblivion. But, I’m afraid of what will fill the vacuum. More of my ramblings and anti-Marvel writing to come. In the meantime, please have a look at the covers sent on to me from Marvel and read their full press release below.
