Revealed at the C2E2 Marvel panel, Peter Parker wasn't the only one who got bit by that irradiated spider that day on the school field trip. July will kick off the two part story in Amazing Spider Man #4 which we find out more about the second victim that calls herself Silk. She has powers like Spider Man but took a different course in her life. This story will tie into the Original Sin summer event.

“[The story about Silk] was something that Dan Slott started working on with former Spidey-Editor Steve Wacker and Associate Editor Ellie Pyle when the Original Sin event was in its formative time,” explains Lowe. “The revelation that someone else was bit by the spider was huge and before my time. I’ve been involved in shaping who Silk is, which has made for some great lunch conversation with Dan and Ellie and many long phone calls. “

The second victim to be bitten by the same spider Peter Parker was has the same power as him. Wonder if she used them for good or evil? All that's been revealed so far is just that she is a woman with long brown hair and a suit made of webbing, which was drawn beautifully by artist Humberto Ramos.

Amazing Spider Man #4

This is a sneak peek panel from what I'm guessing is Amazing Spider Man #4. It shows the spider leaving Peter Parker after biting him and moving across the floor to a woman with long brown hair. It then shows her in the background rubbing her foot where she was bitten as Peter is saying his head feels strange and he needs some air.

Original Sin

Original Sin, everyone has one. Silk's story will tie into the Original Sin summer event. We will get to see more about her in a two part story that starts in Amazing Spider Man #4. I'm excited to see more of this second victim. Silk will also be included in the Spider-Verse event later this year.
