Event Synopsis

After sensing that Silk was released from captivity by Spider-Man, Morlun stated that the Great Hunt, where he and his family would kill every Spider-Totem in the Multiverse, had begun.[2]

As the Inheritors killed numerous Spider-themed heroes, the time-displaced Spider-Man (Otto Octavius) created a team to fight the enemies.[3]

Meanwhile, other villains were embarked in similar quests. Earth-12041's Goblin tried to gather the DNA from different Spider-Men across multiple universes,[4] and the Multiversal Sinister Six attempted to conquer numerous universes by taking the Isotope-8 from one in specific.[5]

And while the Great Hunt takes place, the Spider-Army must find a way to defeat Morlun, Karn, and the rest of the Inheritors once and for all.

List of Casualties

These are the known forty-two "Fallen Spiders" already hunted down and slayed by an Inheritor, according to Karn, his family has hunted many Spider-Totems, including hundreds of Spiders.[6] For a complete list of casualties, either Spider-Totems or not, see this category.



  • When asked if Spider-Boy would appear in Spider-Verse, Dan Slott sarcastically replied, "Oh yeah, DC is going to let us do that, I'm sure. Let me call my DC contact right now."[33]
    • However Spider-Boy partially appeared as a cameo/easter egg in the last page of Spider-Verse #2.
  • Dan Slott was inspired by his own work on the game Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions to conceive Spider-Verse.[34]
  • Spider-Verse was originally going to be a story set during Superior Spider-Man, and would've run in the place of the Necessary Evil and Darkest Hour story arcs.[35]
  • Due to the fact that the Inheritors were hunting down Spider-Men, women, and children all across the multiverse, no children were harmed in the Spider-Verse storyline.
