Origin of the Species

  • After O.M.I.T the next arc will be “Origin of the Species” all of the Gauntlet villains will play a part
  • Spider-Man will be on the run, he has something very important that many people want. Not a moment when he can reest.
  • You’ll see why Spidey is the best hero in the Marvel Universe.
