Spider-Man: Velocity is First Original Spider-Man PS4 Comic Story May 16, 2019

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

Spider-Man on PS4 has been a literal marvel for Marvel Comics, the original publisher of the character. It revived interest in the wall crawler in a way that hasn’t been seen in a decade. Now, a painful agony is upon those who must wait for Insomniac and Marvel to announce its inevitable sequel. However, there have been some interesting developments for the franchise on the comic’s front. While the character in the PS4 game is not the canonical 616 version of Peter Parker found in the main pages of Marvel Comics, the PS4 Spider-Man universe has appeared in comic books including Spider-Geddon, and the game’s story is currently being adapted for the comic series Spider-Man: City at War. However, other than the novelized prequel we haven’t gotten any entirely original comic stories from the Marvel Gamerverse…until now.

Marvel has just revealed the first ever full-length original comic book that will take place in the same universe as the PS4 video game, Spider-Man: Velocity. It’s based on the backstory of the Velocity Suit, an entirely original suit that first appeared in the PS4 Spider-Man game. The suit was designed by artist Adi Granov, who is probably best known for his revolutionary Iron Man suit design in the mid-2000s that was used as the basis for Iron Man’s suit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now it looks like we will finally learn where it came from and why Spidey had to use it.

Spider-Man: Velocity #1 will be coming in August 2019.

Spider-Man is out now exclusively for the PS4.
