The Demon and Spider-Man



We are supposed to be getting a trailer or at least teaser for Spider-Man: Far From Home very soon, maybe even tomorrow.  I'm wondering how Marvel is going to handle it, given the fact that Peter Parker was "dusted" along with half the universe, the last time we saw him.  Will this new adventure be revealed to have happened before the Thanos SNAP or are they just assuming that we all know Spidey is coming back in one way or another anyway?

Whoa. Steve Ditko Demon art. I did NOT know he drew the Demon. That's pretty damn cool.

I would bet that, if the Demon had been a Marvel character, this could have been a good issue for Marvel Team Up. I can't help wondering if we would have seen Dr. Strange in there somewhere.

Great cover!

Although I never read the Aunt May biting the big one & Satan turning back the clock cluster-F$#@ that came out, this would be an interesting twist into that story arch.

Promotional statements have already stated that Spider-Man: Far From Home takes place shortly after Avengers: Endgame, and that it's the opening film for Marvel's Phase 4. Besides, considering that Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and the Guardians of the Galaxy already have further movies in the works, so you can figure that Marvel figured from the get-go that fans would assume some sort of "un-snap" in the story's conclusion.

On another note, five years ago today in issue #641, Etrigan had a dealing with Warren Worthington III. It wasn't their first meeting (that actually happened almost a year earlier, in #363), but I find it a bit disappointing that Angel and the Demon didn't start an ongoing partnership from there.

(I similarly wonder if Dr. Strange and one version or another of Dr. Mid-Nite could have a medical consult. Like Stephen, all three heroes to hold the latter name have been actual M.D.s.)

Nobody I know had any trouble figuring put A-M & THE WASP was a prequel to AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. But, I thought it was a nice touch having the usual end-credit sneak peek affirm that assumption, anyway! So, I see no reason why the next entry in the Spidey-film franchise would have any greater difficulty.
