On Thursday, Marvel announced that the “Star Trek” director and his mini-me will be writing a brand new Spider-Man comic miniseries.

Joining Abrams in crafting the new Spidey story is his 20-year-old son.

“We’re really excited, there’s a crazy new villain named Cadaverous, that we can’t wait for you to meet,” the filmmaker said in the comic’s announcement video. “Marvel, [we’ve] been talking to them for a long time about this, so very excited to be doing it, and especially excited to be doing it with this gentleman.”
