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. “
