A New Goblin Threatens The Spider-Verse As Beyond Era Enters 2022

As seen in a series of teasers today, Spider-Man’s life has been plagued by Goblins for almost 60 years. And this February, a brand-new one will glide into Ben Reilly’s life to continue this tradition. This February, brace yourself for the introduction of Queen Goblin! This vicious new Goblin with long roots in Spider-Man history is set to put a terrifying spin on Amazing Spider-Man’s current Beyond Era. Designed by Marvel Stormbreaker Patrick Gleason, Queen Goblin will make her explosive first appearance in Amazing Spider-Man #88 and continue to plague Spider-Man and much of NYC in Amazing Spider-Man #89 and Amazing Spider-Man #90.

“Queen Goblin was one of the coolest ideas from our BEYOND story summit,” says Exec. Editor Nick Lowe. “All of the writers were riffing on the concept and character and when Pat Gleason dug in on the design we all LOST it. You aren’t going to believe this newest addition to Spidey’s rogue’s gallery!”

“When Nick and Zeb asked me to help with character design for Queen Goblin in Beyond I was thrilled,” says Gleason. “We went New-Medieval with some tweaks on the old Goblin toys. What’s even more fun is letting her off the chain and watching the rest of the art team like Arthur Adams run with her. The writing team has been working like crazy to make her debut worthy of a Queen. I’m writing a scene now that will hopefully melt some brains too.”

Also coming in February will be a special one-shot written by Geoffrey Thorne with art by Jan Bazaldua and Jim Towe. Amazing Spider-Man #88.Bey will feature the return of the The Slingers, a B-list team of heroes using Peter’s castoffs from the 90’s.

Writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Michele Bandini’s run on Miles Morales Spider-Man will also continue to be impacted by the events of the Beyond Era. Issue #35 will see Miles and Shift facing off against Space Stone-host Quantum and the Assessor. And their only hope at victory lies with the Beyond Corporation.
