Marvel’s New Black Cat Spider-Verse Variant Is A Cosplayers Dream

Warning! Spoilers for Edge of Spider-Verse #3 by Marvel Comics

Marvel Comics has officially debuted the newest Black Cat variant from across the Spider-Verse, as the hero and her costume is a gift for cosplayers. In a brand-new preview of Edge of Spider-Verse #3 by Marvel Comics, Night-Spider makes her comic book debut. The Black Cat variant will take part of the spotlight in the upcoming Spider-Verse adventure.

Marvel is currently releasing a new Edge of Spider-Verse series which is taking readers to new places across different realities. The original series (which ran between 2014-15) introduced a handful of Spider-Verse heroes, including Spider-Gwen and, Peni Parker and SP/dr, and played an essential role in the storyline and characters that would appear in the Academy Award-winning Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse animated film. Marvel’s new miniseries with the same title is introducing even more spider-variants from across the Spider-Verse, including Webweaver, a Kraven the Hunter spider-variant named Hunter-Spider, and up next, Night-Spider, a variant of Black Cat.


Marvel Comics shared a new preview for Edge of Spider-Verse #3 with a look at a handful of new stories, including “The Almost Perfect Crime” by Dan Slott, Sumeyye Kesgin, Brian Reber, and VC’s Joe Caramagna. In the preview, a new Black Cat variant called Night-Spider is watching a news report, as a “spider-thief” is called out for stealing precious relics. However, as she exits her apartment, the Black Cat variant isn’t impressed with the nickname, saying she should be referred to as “Night-Spider.” Check out the preview below which features additional looks at the other stories appearing in the comic book.

The new Black Cat variant should become immediately popular for cosplayers, as two of the most popular cosplays in the con circuit are Spider-themed heroes and Black Cat herself. Night-Spider’s combination costume of Black Cat and Spider-Man should lead to many taking on her look, as it combines enough cool elements from the Spider-Verse to make something new. Until that happens, seeing Night-Spider in the comics should make for an entertaining story showing what happened if Black Cat was the spider-hero instead.

Considering the crazy character combinations and creations showcased from across the Spider-Verse thus far, seeing a version of Black Cat with spider powers isn’t shocking. Still, Night-Spider’s costume and still having the desire to be a thief should lead to a unique new character joining the roster of heroes from across the Spider-Verse. The Black Cat variant debuts in Edge of Spider-Verse #3 by Marvel Comics, which arrives in comic book stores on Wednesday.
