Potential spoilers for those few people who haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War in theaters!
Irish comic artist Stephen Byrne is a man who wears his love of pop culture on his sleeve. If you were paying attention to his social media feeds in the weeks leading up to the release of Avengers: Infinity War you more than likely saw the amazing character portraits he drew of over two dozen characters from the film.

By now most people have already seen Infinity War in theaters or the countless “I don’t feel so good” memes that have taken the internet by storm and still trying to recover from that ending that left them on the edge of their seats. Not simply content to wait next year to see how the Marvel Cinematic Universe officially wraps up its first 10 years, Stephen Byrne has created his own non-canonical fan art entitled “After the Snap” showcasing the rest of the MCU dealing with the fallout of Thanos’ infamous last move.

Byrne’s latest “After the Snap” piece takes place in Peter Parker’s old neighborhood and depicts his Aunt May and Ned having to live without their nephew and best friend in their lives. However, most fans will be more interested in seeing Aaron Davis portrayed by Donald Glover in Spider-Man: Homecoming among the victims of Thanos while his nephew Miles Morales watches and is inspired to take up the mantle of Spider-Man.
Sure it’s just a creator/fan having fun, but after the reference to Aaron’s nephew in Homecoming, there are tons of people out there waiting for a payoff and see Miles Morales officially introduced in the MCU. Take note Kevin Feige!
