Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows Is Joining Marvel's Summer 2015 Comics Line-Up
The latest Marvel Summer 2015 teaser is here and it's a big one for Spider-Man fans. Seen below is the teaser cover for Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows #1, and while it may look pretty straightforward, many of you will have noticed a couple of Easter eggs referring to past Spider-Man moments.
Illustrated by Adam Kubert, the teaser cover shows Peter Parker with long-term love, Mary Jane Parker. As for the young lady on Parker's shoulders, could it be May 'Mayday' Parker? For those not sure who May is, during the 90's Spider-Man stories, Mary Jane was pregnant Peter's child, who they were planning on naming....you guessed it, May. However, before May could be welcomed into the world, the Green Goblin abducted Mary Jane and stole the Parker's unborn child. But we never quite got to find out what happened next, because the story was canned by Marvel, leaving the question of what happened to May became something of a trope for Spidey fans.
As for the 'Renew Your Vows' title, that would appear to be a call out to the only time in Spider-Man history when MJ and Peter broke their marriage vows after their wedding in the 1980's. This separation occurred courtesy of Mephisto, who struck a deal with the Parkers to dissolve their marriage in order to save Peter's Aunt May. Quite what this all means in terms of Marvel's grand Summer 2015 plans, I have no idea.
Marvel's Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows joins Future Imperfect Age of Apocalypse, Old Man Logan, Infinity Gauntlet, Iron Man: Armor Wars, Planet Hulk, Age of Ultron vs Marvel Zombies, Civil War and much more in Marvel's Summer 2015 line-up.
We hear that this is one of the last in a long line of teaser announcements, so it hopefully won't be long before we figure out what the heck they are playing at over at Marvel HQ.
