Spider-Man has Spider-Man become entangled in a web from the underwear? The web in the closet may have entangled Spider-Man.
As put by Screen Rant, “Comic publishers like Marvel have been stepping up their game for Pride Month more and more as the years go by, and (now)…Marvel has announced its first gay Spider-Man: Web-Weaver!”
The September issue of the inclusive arachnid is slated to see it in action. Edge of Spider-Verse #5.
Pink News heralded that the new titan in tights will have a “fearlessly femme identity;” and if the costume renderings are on point, surely many would agree with the assessment:

Here’s a bit of the alternative-to-Peter-Parker’s profile:
Web-Weaver is described as a “not-so-mild mannered fashion designer at Van Dyne [industries],” the company owned by Janet Van Dyne aka The Wasp.
After he gets his spider powers, he “shows us a different kind of Spider-Slayer,” according to a description of the comic posted to Twitter.
If you can’t tell from the drawings, “Web-Weaver’s costume features flared sleeves, a ruff, yellow detailing and lashes on the spider lenses.”
Steve Fox, Gay Spidey’s co-creator, praised the opportunity to be non-heteronormative on social media.
“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 this September!”
The idea of American heroes is certainly evolving.
It was once, and it was above all, this:

The comics world was a far cry from reality, with sexuality as far as the East is from the West.
However, over the years the arena has seen a general woke revolution.
In 2020, I covered a few of Disney-owned Marvel’s modern marvels, known as the New Warriors.
With assistance from Marvel.com, meet the Psychic Twins — Snowflake and Safespace:
Snowflake is non-binary and goes by they/them, and has the power to generate individual crystalized snowflake-shaped shurikens.
Safespace can create pink forcefields, but he can’t enter them himself — they only work at protecting others. … Safespace is a big, burly, sort of stereotypical jock.
I also introduced some other newbies:
Also among the group is Trailblazer, who’s “a regular kid scooped up into the world of teenage Super Heroing. Her ‘magic backpack’ is actually a pocket dimension with seemingly infinite space, from which she can pull out useful or random objects—it’s not always under her control.”
And where’d her power come from?
She claims to get her power from god, but “not the god you’re thinking of.”
The New Warriors also includes vampire B-Negative.
Rounding out the bunch: Screentime, “a meme-obsessed super teen whose brain became connected to the internet,” who “can instantly Google any fact.”
“Does this make him effectively a genius?” the New Warriors official introduction page asks. “He sure acts like it does.”
Brand-spanking Web-Weaver: Not everyone online is willing to read. One self-professed “predominantly gay” tweeter remarked, “[N]All of us FEM queens. (It) feels like it’s feeding the stereotypes.”
A second critic posedThe following are some examples:
Eight percent of Americans are LGTBQAI+. What’s the point of making Spider-Man gay? He’s never been gay. Makes zero sense other than to push the Agenda…
You can be gay Spider-Man, ready or not.
Perhaps Web-Weaver will spin something more golden than the New Warriors’ derailed on-air debut:
