Teasing the upcoming Spider-Man event Dead No More, Marvel has released a little gif. It should have you scratching your head if you’re a Spidey fan.

Still here? Okay good, cause there a lot happening here and I have no idea what it is. ‘Dead No More’ certainly says a lot when coupled with the images containing many of Spider-Man’s departed cast. You’ve got Doc Ock in there, Electro, Prowler, and even the 616 version of freaking Gwen Stacy!
So is there a hell of a lot of retconning about to happen (and I mean more than usual)? Is Peter Parker’s whole life, post high school, a lie? And if it is, who’s been pulling the strings on all this, and why? I mean really, that’s a monstrous task right there… And while we’re at it, who’s that guy at the end in the Anubis helm?
Anubis, by the way, isn’t just cool-looking. He’s also an Egyptian god very much associated with passing into the afterlife. So that alone says a ton and a half and might hint at Spidey’s friends and enemies raising from their graves.
Stay tuned Spider-fans, tons more to come on this one.
