His job at Van Dyne is akin to Pete’s at the Bugle. This is very much an action story (with some flirting)!”“And to sites covering Web-Weaver–to the *best of our knowledge*, he is the first canon gay male Spider-hero.

Ultimate Spider-Woman is queer and predates Web-Weaver by about a decade. IMO the key is telling good stories with a range of characters, not just notching ‘firsts,’” Foxe tweeted.Web-Weaver, is Marvel Comics’ first gay Spider-Man.As seen in preview panels of the comic, Web Weaver is shown as a classmate of Peter Parker, who after pushing Peter out of the way of danger, is bitten by a radioactive spider and begins to develop super powers.
