Marvel To Unveil Gay Spider-Man In Disney-Owned Company’s Latest LGBTQ Nod | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Spider-Man is coming out of the closet as a lace-garbed, effeminate crime fighter in Marvel Comic's latest genuflection to the LGBTQ community.

    The Disney-owned company is about to introduce a gay version of the iconic web master, who will appear in the upcoming comic book issue Edge of Spider-Verse #5. The news was revealed on Twitter by Marvel writer Steve Foxe.

    "SURPRISE: I had the huge gay honor of helping to co-create WEB-WEAVER, who'll make his debut in EDGE OF THE SPIDER-VERSE #5 this September!" Foxe tweeted.

    In a separate tweet, Foxe assured readers the gay Spider-Man won't be a proxy for all gays.

    "Something I realized immediately when conceiving Web-Weaver is that he can't-and shouldn't-represent ALL gay men," Foxe wrote. "No single character can. His fearlessly femme identity is central to who he is, but it's not the STORY...which you can experience for yourself in September!"

    Fans on Twitter were not all on board for a same-sex Spidey.

    "Dude why do you have to ruin Spider-Man?" tweeted Eduardo Lanza. "Stan Lee said not to make him gay, your doing something out of some else idea, changing a few things and calling it original character. Don't you brainstorm before this kind of things?"

    "A gay Spider-Man?" tweeted Misti Morgan. "The large majority of Americans do not support this lifestyle. And won't support the body of work you are presenting."

    It's the latest comic-book hero to be painted as gay. Last year, Marvel rolled out a gay Captain America named Aaron Fischer, who took the baton from the original Captain America, Steve Rogers.

    "Marvel Comics is proud to honor Pride Month with the rise of this new LGBTQ+ hero," the woke company said at the time.

    "Aaron is inspired by heroes of the queer community: activists, leaders, and everyday folks pushing for a better life," writer Joshua Trujillo said at the time. "He stands for the oppressed, and the forgotten. I hope his debut story resonates with readers, and helps inspire the next generation of heroes."

    Parent company Disney, which bought Marvel in 2009 for $4 billion, recently injected the gay agenda into its latest "Toy Story" film, portraying a same-sex kiss between two animated female characters. The scene has caused the film to be banned in 14 countries and may have contributed to its dismal box-office performance in the U.S.
