Superior Spider-Man Confirmed and Detailed
With New York City Comic-Con this weekend, Marvel has gone ahead and revealed the new Superior Spider-Man in the pages of USA Today. We all know that Amazing Spider-Man is going to end with the upcoming issue #700, during which a big, epic something is going to happen.
And while that something hasn’t been revealed, we’re now getting our first look at the aftermath.
According to the article at USA Today, the big epic something is going to result in a darker, meaner Spider-Man.
“I’ve always been the omniscient hand that’s been protecting Peter Parker and Spider-Man, and not letting anything too bad happen to him,” he adds. “And now I’ve become this cruel god. There’s something exciting about that, about going, ‘Mwah-ha-ha-ha-ha, here is what’s going to happen to you, Spider-Man!’ And it’s drastic and it’s big and it’s exciting and it’s never been done before.”
Slott also said the term “Friendly Neighborhood” is no longer going to apply to Spider-Man.
Artists will include Ryan Stegman, Humberto Ramos and Giuseppe Camuncoli.
This darker Spider-Man is lending a lot more credence to my theory that Doctor Octopus is going to kill Mary Jane Watson!
Along with the new title, Slott said that Spider-Man will get some new powers, and his costume is going to be tweaked a little. The blue will be replaced by black, plus a few other extraneous changes that you can see in this picture.
So yeah, there is our first introduction to Superior Spider-Man! We may learn more at Comic-Con, and I’ll keep everyone posted as best I can. Though I can’t say I’m excited to see these changes to Spider-Man, my curiosity may be piqued enough to at least buy a few issues.
