Eminem and Spider-Man have a rap battle on the cover of Amazing Spider-Man #1

Hip-hop superstar and recent Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Eminem returns to Marvel Comics for an Amazing Spider-Man #1 variant cover that pits Eminem against Spider-Man himself in an image that pays homage to the climactic rap fight scene from Eminem’s 2002 biographical film 8 Mile, featuring Marvel characters like Miles Morales, Ghost-Spider, Daredevil, and Luke Cage in the audience.

“HONORED to be a part of the Official Variant of The Amazing Spider-Man (2022),” tweeted the official Eminem Twitter account (opens in new tab) on November 21, along with the announcement that the variant will go on sale Tuesday, November 22 via Eminem’s website.

The new variant is for Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Legacy #895) which was released in April and is illustrated by Salvador Larroca and Edgar Delgado.
