While Silk Volume 0 followed the Marvel Now! event Spider-Verse, which involved different incarnations of Spider-people across the Marvel multiverse battling Morlun, the enemy of all Spider heroes, Silk aka Cindy Moon, had been introduced prior to Spider-Verse via Vol. 1 of Amazing Spider-Man (2014). Freed from a bunker by Peter Parker after hiding away from Morlun for a decade, Cindy Moon was initially a horny, amateur Spider-Hero with a lot of room to grow.
Although she had a good first encounter with Black Cat in Amazing Spider-Man, Silk’s inexperience would cause her to make big mistakes during the Spider-Verse event. Her civilian life wasn’t much better. When she wasn’t in lust with Peter Parker due to some weird Spider power related stuff, she was interning for the news station Fact News in order to use their resources to find her missing family. While Cindy was locked away, her parents and her brother Albert had disappeared. As a result, she initially has no one to turn to other than Peter Parker.
Post Spider-Verse event, Cindy finds herself with an over-active Spider-Sense and a renewed determination to make it as a hero and make a new life. It is at this point where Silk Volume 0 begins. [Read more…] about Marvel Then: Silk After Spider-Verse!
