Marvel Comics has brought a surprising character to the comic book universe, as Iron Man 3’s Harley Keener will make her comic book debut.
Warning! Spoilers for Spider-Man WEB # 1 by Marvel Comics below.
A surprising character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to make his comic book debut, as Iron Man 3 Harley keener is about to co-star in the Spider-Man WEB series. Keener, who was last seen at Tony Stark’s funeral in Avengers: Endgame, will play a role in the upcoming Avengers Campus-linked comic, hinting at a potentially bigger role in the upcoming MCU.
Keener (played by Ty Simpkins) was an original character in Iron Man 3, which has no comic book counterpart. In the movie, he helped Tony Stark rebuild his costume after his house was destroyed. The two characters would develop an unlikely friendship, which ended when Tony gifted Harley with new technology and gear after Aldrich Killian was defeated. Harley could reappear in Avengers: End of Game at Stark’s funeral. While the character hasn’t been seen in the MCU since, Marvel could set the stage for bigger things for Harley with her comic book debut.

Marvel Comics has released a new preview of Spider-Man WEB # 1 by Kevin Shinick, Alberto Alburquerque, Rachelle Rosenberg and Travis Lanham, (H / T Monkeys Fighting Robots), a connection to the recently revealed Avengers campus. The comic, like the new tourist destination, has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, with the campus reveal, Marvel has presented a first look at the comics. In the book, Peter Parker arrives at the WEB (Worldwide Engineering Brigade) where he leads a group of “smart kids Tony Stark has brought together.” Peter’s colleagues at WEB include Lunella Lafayette, Onome and Harley Keener.
Keener’s ID shares his Rose Hill, Tennessee origin with his POI saying he’s a “friend of Tony Stark.” While it might seem unimportant to include Keener in the group of talented kids, seeing his story continue in a linked comic book might hint at bigger plans for the character. Keener being in Avengers: Endgame funeral scene and now a comic book linked to Avengers Campus strongly hints that Marvel is not done with the character. Keener has never appeared on the pages of Marvel Comics before, so he was specifically chosen to be included in this Avengers comic book.
Whether or not he reappears in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, seeing Harley make her comic book debut is exciting because it wasn’t clear if he would ever show up outside of her roles on the big screen. Considering Spider-Man WEB is a related book, it wouldn’t be surprising if the comic would lay the groundwork for its next appearance in the MCU. Wouldn’t it be cool to see Harley keener in Stone heart or another future project? Spider-Man Web is in comic book stores next week.
