(Marvel Comics Presents II#1/3) - Psider-Man served a heroic world on his unidentified native world, but he could not keep his true identity secret as he kept telepathically broadcasting "My Name if Pseter Psarker."
(Marvel Comics Presents II#1/3 (fb) - BTS) - Psider-Man is a member of the Galactic Alliance of Spider-Men, whose mission it is to chart policy for a hundred thousand worlds, so that throughout the galaxy, great power would always come with great responsibility.
(Marvel Comics Presents II#1/3) - The Spider-Mech imposter (secretly a Tentaclone) arrived with Spider-Man at the Galactic Alliance of Spider-Men's base.
Spider-Mech introduced Spider-Man
to the Galactic Alliance members, and Psider-Man shared his(?)
woes about his secret identity.
When Spider-Mech suggested the problem was caused by him telepathically broadcasting his name, Psider-Man was shocked to learn this, but he was distracted as Father Spider called the meeting to order (although he continued to broadcast his real name).
Father Spider noted the Doctopoids
approaching Earth, and he alerted the rest of the Alliance to this and
ordered them through the warp to protect Earth.
(Marvel Comics Presents II#1/3 - BTS) - Psider-Man presumably rushed to join this effort, again broadcasting his name in the process; but Spider-Man stopped them, however, insisting that he be the one to save his world, after which he exposed the Spider-Mech imposter as a Tentaclone.
While the rest of the Galactic Alliance engaged the Tentaclone, Spider-Man was knocked back through the warp to Earth.
(Marvel Comics Presents II#1/3 - BTS) - Awakening back in his apartment, Spider-Man assumed he must have dreamed the whole experience, but the subspace spider-signal device the false Spider-Mech had used to transport Spider-Man to the Galactic Alliance (or another such device) could be seen underneath the couch...Comments: Created by Stuart Moore, Clayton Henry, and Mark Morales.
It's somewhat questionable in the
story whether the Galactic Alliance of Spider-Men story took place in
Reality-616, or whether it was a dream (as Spider-Man had concluded
upon awakening back in his apartment), but the device seen on the
ground would argue against automatically discounting them, so I'm
including them for now until we see definitive evidence to the
contrary. If it was "only a dream" for Spider-Man-616, then there's
some reality in which they do exist.
But, what ever happened with that Subspace Spider-Signal, anyway?
The Galactic Alliance of
Spider-Men's mission is to chart policy for a hundred thousand worlds,
so that throughout the galaxy, great power would always come with great
responsibility. They refer to the domain/world of each of their members
Neighborhoods, with Earth being Neighborhood-1139.
In addition to the similarities in Spider-Man names, costumes, and abilities, the various members of the Galactic
Alliance of Spider-Men referenced similar characters to Aunt May, Jonah
Jameson, Gwen Stacy, Flash Thompson, Mary Jane Watson, and an alien
