BREAKING NEWS! Spider-Prime Cameo in Spider-Verse #2!

I’m stunned. When we started the Ultraverse Network, I never suspected we’d be posting Ultraverse-related content from a brand new comic! The anthology series Spider-Verse #2 hit the stands yesterday from Marvel Comics, written by Dan Slott, Kathryn Immonen, Jed McKay, and others; with art by Mark Brooks, David Lafuente, Sheldon Vella, and others; and a cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli.

You may find this hard to believe, but the long-lost fan-favorite character Spider-Prime has a cameo appearance in this book!! Check out the page below (click to enlarge)!

Did you see him? No? I didn’t the first time either. How about if we zoom in and circle it for you…

Yup, that’s Spider-Prime! Admittedly, it’s a really brief cameo. Heck, it’s like one-eighth of a cameo, but they managed to sneak him in!

Now, let’s think about this for a minute. It’s been nearly 18 years since we’ve seen our favorite Ultraverse characters in print. We started this Network just about three months ago, and now we’re suddenly seeing the return of an Ultraverse character?!??! Coincidence? I THINK NOT!! … okay … it’s totally a coincidence, but it’s still fun to claim it was our influence. :)

If you are an Ultraverse completest (and I know there are a bunch of you out there), be sure to pick up Spider-Verse #2, in stores now! You’ll find the cover below.

    I did catch that! It could have something to do with the Ultraverse Network. It could also have something to do with me bugging Dan Slott since I first heard about Spider-verse to at LEAST add a sneaky cameo of Spider-Prime and Amalgam’s Spider-Boy in the artwork somewhere. True story. lol

    Now we just need to keep our eyes peeled for Spider-Boy hidden somewhere.

    I know. I spotted it about 10 seconds after I posted that! I even made it a blog entry over on my Marvel vs DC: Crossover Craziness blog. hahaha
