Disney-Owned Marvel Set to Unveil “Fearlessly Femme” LGBT Version of Spiderman This Fall


The Disney-owned Marvel universe is set to rethink its classic Spiderman character with a flamboyant twist in an upcoming issue of the comic series Edge of Spider-Verse.

“Web Weaver,” who will be, according to the designer, a “very different kind of Spider-Slayer,” is one of three new spin-offs of the Spiderman character, The Christian Post reported.

The issue creator Steve Fox described the “fearlessly femme” Web Weaver as a “not-so-mild mannered fashion designer.”

“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!”

The character was designed by character and costume designer Kris Anka, who shared sketches of Web-Weaver to Twitter.

Comments revealed mixed reactions from Marvel fans, even those who support the LGBT lifestyle.

The Christian Post noted that while Spider-Man creator Stan Lee was on board with the idea of creating new LGBT for the Marvel Universe, he wasn’t a fan of changing already-established characters.

“I think the world has a place for gay superheroes, certainly,” he said in a 2015 interview. “But again, I don’t see any reason to change the sexual proclivities of a character once they’ve already been established. I have no problem with creating new, homosexual superheroes.”
