Homecoming’s Ned Leeds Gets Funny Tie-In With New Spider-Man Comic

Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Ned Leeds gets a hilarious name drop in the latest Spider-Man comic to hit the stands. Check it out after the jump.

If you watched Spider-Man: Homecoming, you know Peter Parker’s best friend in the film, Ned Leeds. Leeds was one of the standouts in Spider-Man: Homecoming and fans loved him. Leeds looks a lot and acts a lot like Ganke Lee from the Miles Morales Spider-Man comics. Coincidentally Lee is the best friend to Morales, so a joke involving both Leeds and Lee would be pretty meta and hilarious.

In issue #236, writer Brian Michael Bendis has a lot of fun with Lee and Leeds’ similarities. A girl asks Lee if his name is Ned and replies “Do I look like a Ned?” The joke is pretty solid and flows perfectly. The illustrations by Oscar Bazaldua, Brian Reber, and Cory Petit fit the moment perfectly. You can check out an image of the full panel from the comic over at ScreenRant by clicking here.

Here’s the official synopsis:

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Spider-Man #236 is on comic stands now and Spider-Man: Homecoming is available on Blu Ray and Digital Download now!
