Following a string of speculative tweets from Marvel Entertainment, it has been announced that J.J. Abrams and his son Henry will write a brand new story for Marvel Comics with Spider-Man #1.

The father-son duo will introduce a new villain to Spidey’s already illustrious rouge’s gallery with Cadaverous, who is set to cause problems for the web-head, his alter-ego Peter Parker, and his longtime love-interest Mary Jane Watson.

The mini-series will run for five issues and is slated to debut this September. Art will be done from the acclaimed Sara Pichelli and colored by Dave Stewart. Teased by the Abrams to showcase “Peter Parker in a way you haven’t seen him before,” the two spoke to The New York Times about the upcoming comic.

“Nick had been pressing me to do a book with him,” J.J. explains. “A year or so ago, I started talking about it with Henry and it sort of happened organically. And that has been the joy of this. Even though I’ve been talking to Nick for a long time, weirdly, this feels like it just sort of evolved from the conversations of Henry and I, having ideas that got us excited and Nick being open to the collaboration.”

Henry explains “Spider-Man is one of those Super Heroes where the more you read about him, for me at least, the less I understand him. He’s so anti-everything that you’d expect from a hero.”

Are you excited to read J.J. Abrams’ take on the iconic character? Grab Spider-Man #1 this September.

In case you missed it, the X-Men are getting primed for a reboot in and outside of the comics.
