The Amazing Spider-Man becomes The Superior Spider-Man next January, but it will reportedly NOT be Peter Parker behind the mask! So, who will it be?! Well, there's no word on that just yet, but here's your chance to share your own theories.

There are many, MANY theories doing the rounds when it comes to who will be behind the mask in next January's The Superior Spider-Man #1. Dan Slott has claimed that it won't be Peter Parker donning the slightly different costume, but that could be a red herring of some sort...perhaps the character fakes his death or changes his name? That's one idea, and while some of the others are completely ridiculous or make perfect sense (well, sort of), we've tried to cover all the possibilities with the poll below. However, if you have any thoughts or theories of your own, make sure to tell us in the usual place.

Its Michael Fassbender, Idris Alba, or Christian Bale.
marvel72 - 10/19/2012, 1:41 PM
might be kaine or even morbius.
KryptonitePen - 10/19/2012, 1:42 PM
@SAT hahaha, this guess seems very likely.
bemond - 10/19/2012, 1:43 PM
Bieber... Definetly Justin Bieber. Or maybe Selina Gomez
BSingerFoxMen - 10/19/2012, 1:44 PM
It's either Kaine or Spider-man 2099. He has those crazy little barbs on his fingers too!!

J jonah jameson. I hope it is someone completely left field.
superotherside - 10/19/2012, 1:49 PM
I have no idea. I thought that he might be Miles Morales, I'm not sure now though, because they have a picture of him kissing MJ, and he seems to be Caucasian. So I'm not sure on that one. I'm thinking he might be Alpha. There is literally no reason for the Alpha story besides to make him the new Spider-man. And Slott said that Peter's greatest tragedy was loosing his Uncle whereas Alpha's was loosing his powers. Thus he could be more humble to where he might be the next Spider-man. But at any rate, I doubt it'll last for long. I give it less than 6 months to have Parker back behind the mask.

Gabourey Sidibe.
superotherside - 10/19/2012, 1:49 PM
Although if it is Alpha, he'd be in love with MJ and only 16? Ewww... so I'm not sure. Perhaps Ben could be resurrected?
SkullFace616 - 10/19/2012, 1:51 PM
Miguel O'Hara!
Stumblin - 10/19/2012, 1:53 PM
I bet his last name will be O'Hara, possible relative of 2099 Spider-Man?
jimpinto24 - 10/19/2012, 2:01 PM
Dan Slott is a good comic book writer. I just don't like his direction on TSSM comics. This is the only title I will not pick up during Marvel NOW!
alexi52 - 10/19/2012, 2:03 PM
it's obviously uncle ben
alexi52 - 10/19/2012, 2:04 PM
it could be harry osborn
CaptainObvious - 10/19/2012, 2:07 PM

Some ass clown who will taint the legacy of Peter Parker.
CharlesLord - 10/19/2012, 2:15 PM
this sounds like a terrible idea....
CharlesLord - 10/19/2012, 2:15 PM
wouldnt be surprised if it turned out to be Miles tho
REDSTORM - 10/19/2012, 2:17 PM
Have you noticed we never see Bruce Wayne and Spider-Man in the same place?
longbowhunter - 10/19/2012, 2:25 PM
Another clone. Friend of mine has a good theory cooking that involves the Jackal.
souhunter - 10/19/2012, 2:27 PM
I don't know

What the crap. This will suck.
DoomXfactor - 10/19/2012, 3:19 PM
I can't wait to see Dan Slott removed from his writing duties on Spider-man. I think it's been long enough already.
MrAgamotto - 10/19/2012, 3:48 PM
It´s not Alpha, he's a skinny teenager, the Spider-Man from the covers, variants and previews is a grown-up man. I also doubt its 616 Miles. My guess is that the Superior Spider-Man is Miguel O'hara, the Spider-Man of the year 2099. It fits with all the details that Marvel and Slott have shown, he have retractable claws in his fingers and his toes, he fits with the "dark and weird" description, afterall Miguel was a darker Spider-Man for darker times. He have very light-sensitive eyes that would explain the weird looking eyes of the mask. And finally he'd be a "Superior" Spidey because he have organic web-shooter, he comes from the future so he is probably smarter than Peter, he might not have an spider-sense but he have heightened senses and a poisonous bite but more importantly, Miguel does not hold back when he fight against common bad guys. So that's why he's not a friendly neighborhood.

Boyz boyz boyz boyZ.... think with your asss not your tittts... its Venom, or the symbiote and Pete joined, bonded

AmazingFantasy - 10/19/2012, 4:52 PM
It's Migeul O Hara. Look at the reasons MrAgamotto posted, you'd be blind not to accept it.

I bet my life on it.

Space - 10/19/2012, 4:59 PM
relative of Miguel O'hara since Miguel is in the future
JredTheRed - 10/19/2012, 5:21 PM
i was thinking miles till the pic of him kissing mj too....then i though miguel cuz the fingers....but now i'm thinking miles again....why u ask? yea the pic was a white guy...so what? nick fury is white in 616 remember and black in ultimate u. maybe 616 miles is white and maybe thats what started parker in the last page of spidermen....just a thought cuz they wouldnt put that there if they did have a plan for it.

Well, technically, but in Amazing Spider-man #678 and #679 it was shown that Grady, a colleague of Peter Parker's at Horizon Labs, built a Time Machine. Maybe Peter and Miguel change places and both are trapped in each other times unable to return to their original timestream.
StuckInPanels - 10/19/2012, 6:28 PM
I can sorta see it being Miguel O Hara. I can't wait to see the first new issue
WruceBayne - 10/19/2012, 6:29 PM
Whoever he is, he can't stick to walls, hence the claws and retractable toe claw. We don't even know if he has super strength or not.
LoneShadow99 - 10/19/2012, 6:39 PM
I, to, think it's Miguel O' Hara. Some how. I think it's cool.
Mrcool210 - 10/19/2012, 6:42 PM
JredTheRed in spider-man season one spidey saves miles, and he's black, so yeah this aint miles
Moakynubs - 10/19/2012, 7:26 PM
If it's Miguel O'Hara, I'll flip. I love 2099.
