COMICS: Marvel Unveils Another "Superior" Teaser; THE SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN?!

Another "Superior" teaser has been unveiled by Marvel, but it this time includes the creative team of writer Dan Slott with artists, Ryan Stegman, Humberto Ramos and Giuseppe Camuncoli. Could this be a new Spider-Man series? It certainly seems like the most likely option!

USA Today have revealed the following teaser which seemingly confirms that Dan Slott and his regular Amazing Spider-Man artists will be, ahem, sticking around for the relaunched Marvel NOW! series featuring the wall-crawler. The red and blue also seems to be a clue. The current series will be ending with December's issue #700, and it has been teased that there are very, VERY big changes in store for Peter Parker. What could the "Superior" tag refer to? Guess we're just going to have to wait and see...

superior spider-man......

don't know what else it could be.

Slott already said he wasn't leaving Spider-Man so unless he's picking up another title, it's Spidey.

I'm so glad Marvel kept Dan Slott as the writer for ASM comics! I would say the change will probably be a new custom change for Spidey.
shiverman20 - 10/5/2012, 9:48 AM
i really wanted ASM to be unaffected, I love that it has kept its original numbering since issue 1
LAWLZY96 - 10/5/2012, 9:50 AM
pffft slott's spider-man has it moments, but its pretty bad overall
Alex909 - 10/5/2012, 9:51 AM
Really didn't want Slott staying on. Damn. Stegman is awesome though, at least the book will look amazing even if the writing isn't.
CaptainObvious - 10/5/2012, 9:54 AM
Personally, I don't care if Slott leaves or not. I don't read Spidey anymore so good for him if he stays on.
coolguy - 10/5/2012, 10:16 AM
i dont read any marvel but his spiderman seems like it would be good.
ATrueHero1987 - 10/5/2012, 10:19 AM
Glad I'm still subscribed to Spider-Man. I heard Spidey is getting a costume change....I hope not.
iJackSparrow - 10/5/2012, 10:27 AM
Dan Slott is among the all time top Spider-Man writers. He has the potential to become THE BEST of all of them when it's all said and done. As long as my money's worth, Dan Slott will keep writing Amazing Spider-Man forever.
Equivocal - 10/5/2012, 10:31 AM

100% True !!!

I wish dan sloth would go away from Spiderman, he, whacker & queza_dilla have been ruinning spidey for a long time now....

ATrueHero1987 - 10/5/2012, 10:34 AM
@CaptainCool I believe I heard that on here awhile back. Not sure.

I like that different costumes he had over the past 3 years but it's just something about the original...I love it. :)

I don't know about you guys but I think of Millar's Superior when I see these.

Read a very cool idea that this would be a direct tie-in to Amazing with Doc Ock's mechanical arms being fused to Peter Parker permanently. Urgo ruining Peter Parker's secret identity and making a SUPERIOR spider-man through giving him 8 limbs.

I wish Bendis would get a crack at the 616 Spider-Man in an ongoing solo series. He nailed the character perfectly in Spider-Men and it just seems like he'd know exactly how to handle him.

With that being said however, it might be hard for him to adapt considering the obvious constraints the 616 continuity has when compared to the Ultimate Universe.

Over there you can kill off Peter Parker and replace him -- there's no way the editors and marketing people would ever allow that in the mainstream continuity. It'd be too much of a risk in their eyes and all they care about is making money... lots of it.

i hate dan slotts spider-man run just plain awful writes spider-man like an incompetent hypo reactive idiot and hasnt wrote a story worth reading the alpha story was just terrible. i would love to see ed brubaker jonathan hickman or even jason aaron have a crack at spidey cos spider-man hasnt been good since JMS
superotherside - 10/5/2012, 11:22 AM
Not fair. Hopefully he can at least reverse the whole one more day thing though. IDK, to me a lot of his writing is big major half well done story, then tons of fill in stories.
Asterisk - 10/5/2012, 11:28 AM

Awesome, ASM is my favorite monthly book right now, (other than Invincible) and Slott is just AWESOME at what he does.

@IM53, I read it and it was enjoyable. It's wordy,'s Bendis, what're gonna do.
ATrueHero1987 - 10/5/2012, 11:31 AM
Y'all didn't like Spider Island??
sharkman03191 - 10/5/2012, 11:40 AM
For the msot part, I've really enjoyed Slott's run on the book, but I can't stand Humberto Ramos' art... I think its time that someone else get a chance to write for the character.
ronnie42 - 10/5/2012, 12:03 PM
When they say reboot I have a bad 'spider sense' feeling that this might be not be good news.

FritoFrito - 10/5/2012, 12:05 PM
@ XavierLehnsherr love that design, did you make it?

also long time site visitor, first time poster, can anyone tell me how to post images here? thanks!
DiLusso - 10/5/2012, 12:09 PM
Bring back JMS. He made Spidey awesome

Maybe some new thought out villains? Spider-Man needs something like Batman's recent Court of Owls story.
xstryker - 10/5/2012, 12:42 PM
Maybe they kill or retire Peter Parker, and Alpha becomes his "Superior" replacement?
AmazingFantasy - 10/5/2012, 4:16 PM

Read it here:

I feel so awesome...
CaptainObvious - 10/5/2012, 5:50 PM
I predict that Gwen Stacy will come back in the 700th issue.
AC1 - 10/6/2012, 3:07 AM
Maybe the redesign will look like the new movie costume? Seems like Marvel have no problem with emulating their movies in the comics.
MagneticEye - 11/26/2012, 2:56 AM
The best thing about ASM lately has been the artwork by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Stefano Caselli, and Ryan Stegman. The horrible out of perspective anatomy scribbles by Humberto Ramos are totally cringeworthy.

I don't know why Marvel keep giving him work. I'm all for artistic style but messy pseudo manga style for Spiderman just doesn't look right.

"Superior Spiderman" is also such a dumb sounding title. Marvel are going all out to lose even more long time readers by targeting a younger demographic and Dan Slott isn't that great a writer anymore. His writing has become hyped up showmanship with no substance.

Good story telling begins with individual characterization, not by changing costumes, the title of the book, and making it more brutal, dark or whatever. It's pure and simple laziness and total disrespect for the character. What are they trying to prove? You cannot better what Stan Lee & Steve Ditko perfected.

They need to engage readers with substantial mature storytelling. Dan Slott's creativity has stagnated and rather than pass the mantle on, they're succumbing to the incontinent urge to mess everything up for the sake of what - a short term increase in sales? Wow! that's Marvel NOW the house of NO IDEA.

My ASM collection stops at #700.
