Spider-Verse

"Spider-Verse" is a 2014 comic book storyline published by Marvel Comics. It features multiple alternative versions of Spider-Man that had appeared in various media, all under attack by Morlun and his family, the Inheritors. The last two episodes of Spider-Man: The Animated Series (Spider-Wars) about multiple Spider-Men going across dimensions fighting villains, served as inspiration for Spider-Verse. Beginning in August 2014, the event was preceded by two new issues of the cancelled Superior Spider-Man, issues of Spider-Man 2099 and a five issue run of one shots-all under the Edge of Spider-Verse banner.

Following the conclusion of the event in Amazing Spider-Man #14, several characters introduced in it such as Silk of Earth-616 and Spider-Gwen, the Spider-Woman of Earth-65, were featured in titles of their own. Several of the Spider-Men from this event reunited for the second volume of Spider-Verse set during the Secret Wars and continued to operate together in the Web Warriors series. The 2017 event Venomverse was structured in a similar way to Spider-Verse, featuring alternative versions of Venom instead.

The idea of bringing together alternate versions of Spider-Man was also explored in various video games and the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series, with the 2018 animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse serving as an adaptation of this story arc.

In 2018, Spider-Verse also received a direct sequel titled Spider-Geddon.
