Dan Slott, the writer of Superior Spider-man, has been teasing fans about the upcoming issue of Superior Spider-man. At this summers Comic-con he had this to say: “I’m expecting people to be completely blindsided by “Superior Spider-Man” #20. They’ll be like “WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED HERE?” Secrets will be revealed, threats for the future will emerge, and when you add that to the stuff that’s going on in the present it’s a key issue.”
The current status quo for Superior Spider-man began in the pages of the cancelled Amazing Spider-man. In the comic Spider-man villain Doctor Octopus discovers that he is dying. He creates a machine that switches minds and uses it on Spider-man. Doctor Octopus is now in Spider-man's body while Spider-man apparently dies in Doctor Octopus' body. What issue #20 holds in store for the status quo remains to be seen. Could this be the return of Peter Parker or will something else completely unexpected happen.
Here's the solicitation for issue #20: From the fallout of NECESSARY EVIL, comes new beginnings and new twists that will be felt in the pages of Spider-Man for years to come! SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #20 is where it all starts! Do NOT miss this one! It’s the first ever adventure for the Superior Spider-Man and the Black Cat. Felicia Hardy always cared for the Spider more than the man. But what happens when that man is Otto Octavius? Plus: A day Otto has been waiting for is finally here. Is the world ready for “Dr. Peter Parker”… and what he plans to do next?
What do you think will happen next?
