Spider-Man Becomes a Part of DC Universe:
We all know what you guys might be thinking. Has Marvel officially lost it? First, they make Doctor Strange the new Iron Mage, then they completely change the origin story of the Hulk, and now they have done something so horrible that the fans may never be able to forgive Marvel for this. Spider-Man has jumped into the DC Universe ladies and gentlemen. This is no longer a joke. There might be a wall-crawling superhero in the ranks of the DC Universe roster. But the wait wasn’t DC and marvel supposed to be rivals? Why are they doing this then?! Everything will be explained in detail.
SPOILER ALERT: Major Spoilers for Young Justice #12 up ahead. Enter at your own risk….
Young Justice is one of the most popular DC Superhero teams made up of young members and contemporaries of members of the Justice League superheroes. And on one of their unexpected recruitment drives, they have come across Marvel’s Spider-Manas the newest rook to join their ranks.
DC has its new Spider-man and it is not a copy but the actual Marvel counterpart. DC had told the fans that the new Young Justice recruits will soon be joining the series as core members and will be featured extensively.
Young Justice is a team that was conceptualized and created by Brian Michael Bendis when he came to the DC drawing circle as an artist and writer. Bendis tried to playfully give out a theory that the Speed Force – the dimension that gives the Flash and the other DC Speedsters their powers is also connected to the Marvel Comic Book Universe.
Now using that connection and reference, DC has managed to pull Spider-Maninto their foray. The Speed Force dimensional rift had already sucked into it Super Boy aka Conner Kent. The Wonder Twins’ activity somehow triggers another anomaly shift that ends up pulling Miguel Montez and Summer Pickens of Dial H for Hero fame into the mainstream DC Universe. The duo is also the inventor of some of the most peculiar and strongest technologies in their universe.
The Magical Dial that the duo uses is a technology that combines science and magic. It is a device that taps into unseen inter-dimensional forces and grants whoever dials the phone a random superhero’s ability. The catch is the dialler has no idea of the type and kind of superpower he or she might get. The Young Justice members claim that the dial is somehow connected to the events happening so Miguel decides to team up with the DC Superheroes. He uses the dial and is transformed into…you guessed it, DC’s very own Spider-Man!!
Now, what does it entail for Spider-Manas a whole we still do not have any idea. This is not the first time the wall-crawler has swung over the fence to DC though. There was once a crossover arc where Super Boy and Spider-Manmerged to form another superhero. Maybe the entire storyline of Young Justice is just a big fat old-time comic book reference. It can only get interesting after this. Perhaps DC is just using a parody version of the popular Marvel superhero as a jibe at their competitors. Marvel fans are not at all pleased. DC fans, on the other hand, cannot control their laughter. It is all a friendly skirmish folk. Keep it cool.
The Last Solo Marvel movie to be released under the Disney banner is Spider-Man: Far From Home. The movie is currently in theatres. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
Peter Parker’s relaxing European vacation takes an unexpected turn when Nick Fury shows up in his hotel room to recruit him for a mission. The world is in danger as four massive elemental creatures — each representing Earth, air, water and fire — emerge from a hole torn in the universe. Parker soon finds himself donning the Spider-Man suit to help Fury and fellow superhero Mysterio stop the evil entities from wreaking havoc across the continent.
