Eminem And Spider-Man Rap Battle On New Amazing Spider-Man Cover

People from the real world don't often end up in the world of Marvel Comics, but Marshall Mathers, also known as Eminem, would be a great choice if it had to happen. So, is this the start of Eminem and Spider-Man epic Marvel rap battle story?

Eminem and Spider-Manwill join in a friendly, but rare, rap battle with Venom in the front row and center. This will happen when Marvel shows off the newest limited-edition variant cover for The Amazing Spider-Man #1. The long-awaited comic came out in April of this year.
In honor of the April release of The Amazing Spider-Man #1, Hustl has released a new limited edition cover that shows a fight between a Detroit rapper and the famous web-slinger. Spidey is also wearing cool headphones, and Em is holding the mic.

Eminem Battles Spider-Man on New 8-Mile Inspired Comic Book Cover

Spider-Man will fight a different kind of enemy in a very different kind of battle. Marvel has announced that Spider-Man vs. Eminem is going to happen, and the Wall-Crawler will rap against Slim Shady!
But, don't worry, Spider-Man rapping with Eminem won't be a weird turn in the Marvel Universe canon. Instead, the variant cover for Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Legacy #895), which starts a new era of Spider-Man stories and is now on sale, shows Spidey and Eminem fighting over a microphone.
Salvador Larroca and Edgar Delgado drew the art for the variant cover of Amazing Spider-Man #1 (2022) with Eminem on it. As you can see below, the picture is a direct tribute to Eminem's 2002 semi-biopic 8 Mile, which was a big hit at the box office and won many awards, including an Oscar for Best Original Song for "Lose Yourself" by Eminem.
Funny enough, this scene between Eminem and Spider-Man is a double-meta Easter egg: Eminem's character "Rabbit" goes into 8 Mile's final rap battle against rival "Papa Doc," who was played by Anthony Mackie, who would later become a Marvel star.
Speaking of Easter eggs, if you look around the crowd in the picture, you can find some fun cameos. Mile Morales/Spider-Man is the most obvious, but you can also see Luke Cage, Black Panther, Ghost-Spider, and Daredevil.
As for availability, this Eminem-themed variant cover for Amazing Spider-Man #1 will be printed 5,000 times and sold on The Haul. There will also be 1,000 limited prints of the "spotlight version of the variant comic cover," which are on sale as of Tuesday, November 29th.
Eminem (or his representatives) said this about Marvel's new Amazing Spider-Man cover in a tweet:
Like Spider-Man crawlin' upside of a wall. HONORED to be on the official variant of The Amazing Spider-Man (2022)... drops tomorrow on shop.eminem.com @Marvel- Eminem
Marshall Mathers was one of several famous people who were in Marvel's first "Hellfire Gala" in 2021. This is not the first time Eminem has joined the Marvel Comics Universe.
At that event, the X-new Men's nation of mutants, Krakoa, invited human celebrities, influential people, and people in positions of power to a huge gala. Eminem was on the list of people who were invited to the Hellfire Gala.
He was one of the many celebrity Easter eggs that made fans want to read each chapter of the Rashomon-style story and look for each famous face in the crowd. The Amazing Spider-Man #1 is now on sale, along with a variant cover by Eminem.


On a variant cover for Amazing Spider-Man (2022) #1, the real Slim Shady is about to stand up. This Amazing Spider-Man (2022) #1 variant cover was made by Salvador Larroca and hustl.
It shows Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, on stage with Spider-Man while a bunch of Marvel Universe characters, like Miles Morales, Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Ghost-Spider, cheer them on. Spider-Man watches Eminem freestyle with headphones on and a microphone in his hand.
