This week’s Superior Spider-Man #9 promises a big change, what could possibly be bigger than the death of Doctor Octopus and Peter Parker?! If you have been following Superior Spider-Man (if you haven’t you should, it’s one of the best Marvel NOW! titles) then you know the changes that Spider-Man has gone through. The Superior Spider-Man has become far more aggressive (even deadly in one case) in the way he deals with adversaries and not only that he has also alienated himself away from his family, friends and even the Avengers. Otto has become increasingly unstable and it appears to be finally coming to a head as Peter has found a way to gain control of his body back!
Peter has been inside of his own mind since the mind swap waiting for the right time to take back control and he finally found his opening, only for Otto to be one step ahead (won’t spoil it, read #8) so this all leads to big events of issue #9, what could possibly get us more upset than Spider-Man dying? Here are some ideas… (may contain some spoilers)
Who is the Green Goblin? If you happen to read the C2E2 conference, you will notice that Dan Slott (writer of Superior Spider-Man) noted how it was interesting that the Green Goblin has only been seen once in costume, and how we as readers should not jump in and just assume it’s Norman under the hood. Wait…what?! Who could possibly be the Green Goblin? Also, Spider-Man 2099 is set to make his return in Superior Spider-Man #17…because you can’t have too many Spider-Men…why not bring back Ben Riley…always liked him! Anyway, Dan Slott sent out a tweet a few months back that had everybody (myself included) up in arms because it appeared that Miguel O Hara, was going to be the Superior Spider-Man. Some noted how Superior had a toe claw similar to Spider-Man 2099, so the theory was easy to accept. We would later find out that this wasn’t the case, but the tweet may have had a nugget of truth as Miguel is set to make his return to the Marvel U (with Slott even hinting that this story has been building since #600 of ASM) things are about to get weird folks, buckle up.
Now, we wait till #9 hits shelves later this week. Try not to read any spoilers and go into this as fresh as you can and hit up @inter-comics on twitter or visit inter-comics.com and this blog with thoughts and reactions!
Later Web heads!
