Synopsis for "Spider-Story (Part 1 of 2)"

The Greek owners/operators of the bar where Hercules works have fled the dangers of New York City and returned to Greece, leaving Hercules in charge. After a while he befriends an elderly African man named A. Nancy who loves stories. One night Herc is bitten by a bed bug that gives him spider powers, which he uses to fight crime. He ends up fighting the X-Men who are in town still dealing with those who were turned into lizard men by the Lizard. It was shown that Hercules ended up getting spider powers where a tenant at the bar he worked at has been having bedbug problems.

Solicit Synopsis

You loved it when Herc dressed up as Thor, but can you handle the senses-shattering debut of... THE INCREDIBLE SPIDER-HERC?!?! And versus... THE X-MEN??? Though he is the newly self-appointed protector of Brooklyn, when a rash of unusual occurrences begin breaking out in Manhattan, Hercules finds himself ""infested"" with Spider-Powers of his own. Unfortunately, our web-slinging former demigod soon finds himself under the thrall of the insidious intelligence behind Spider Island and in a duel to the death against fellow champions The X-Men. Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente join up with artist June Brigman to deliver a pulse-pounding, wall-crawling [!!!] adventure with Marvel's lovable lug, HERC!



The Cover is a homage to Amazign Spider-Man #100
