What Happened After Spider-Man’s Secret Identity Was Revealed In The ‘Civil War’ Comic

SPOILER WARNING FOR SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME

Of all the many superheroic individuals to grace comic books and the silver screen over the past half-century, Spider-Man's secret identity has no doubt been the most closely guarded. Peter Parker’s desire to keep his wall-crawling side-gig under wraps - and thus protect his friends and family from peril - has often been a central theme to his stories, which is what makes it so disconcerting that he’s been outed to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe by Mysterio as of Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Fortunately, this isn’t entirely new territory for the webslinger - it’s exactly what happened to Spider-Man in Civil War, one of the largest and most consequential crossovers to ever hit the pages of Marvel Comics. Taking a close look at how Spidey dealt with being exposed in the comics might give fans an idea of how he will handle it in the MCU - though at this point, it’s probably safer to expect the unexpected.
