Today Marvel dropped yet another piece of the Secret Wars. Dan Slott’s Spider-Island gets a piece of Battleworld. Secret Wars: Spider-Island features a lead story revisiting the “Spider-Island” event by Christos Gage and Paco Diaz, and along with that is a secondary story featuring a return of not just Mayday Parker but the entire MC2 universe, with key creators Tom Defalco and Ron Frenz.
Gage says his lead story in Spider-Island is set in an alternate timeline where Spider-Queen won that day instead of being thwarted by Spider-Man. Spider-Island‘s secondary story featuring Mayday and the return of the MC2, it starts off with Mayday’s decision to transition from the name Spider-Girl to Spider-Woman.
