Marvel To Debut ‘The Superior Spider-Man’
After its 700th issue this December, the ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ comic series will finally come to a conclusion.
But fear not Spidey-fans—Marvel has announced that it will be replacing the 50-year-old series with a brand new wall crawler called ‘The Superior Spider-Man’.
According to Marvel’s Dan Slott and Ryan Stegman, the redesigned ‘Spider-Man’ with feature a new costume with new abilities and—most importantly—a new ‘edgier’ attitude.
“This is still very much the world of Spider-Man,” said writer Dan Slott in an interview with Marvel, “There may be a new Spider-Man here, doing things in a new and different way, but you’re going to see the Spider-cast reacting to this.”
“You’re going to see how this Spider-Man will deal with our Spider-Man’s villains.”
"Whoever makes it out of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700 will find a different Spider-Man waiting for them when Superior Spider-Man starts."
The Superior Spider-Man series is set for release in January 2013.
Do these changes sound like a good idea? Or should Marvel stick to its original ‘Spider-Man’ series?
