COMICS: The New Spidey Locks Lips With Mary Jane On THE SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #2 Cover

Revealed at today's "Marvel NOW!: Join the ReEvolution" panel at the New York Comic Con, we have a first look at Ryan Stegman's The Superior Spider-Man #2 cover. What's the big deal? Well, it features the NEW Spidey locking lips with Mary Jane Watson!

As we told you yesterday, the new "Marvel NOW!" Spider-Man series will NOT feature Peter Parker behind the mask. As if that wasn't enough to rile up fans of the character, it was also revealed by series writer Dan Slott that the new Spider-Man's love interest will be none other than Peter's former wife, Mary Jane Watson! Needless to say, The Superior Spider-Man has not been met with a positive reaction (more details can be found by clicking HERE), and Ryan Stegman's cover for issue #2 won't do anything to calm down those fretting about the dark direction that Marvel will be taking the iconic character in next January.

I still say it's a red herring, and we'll have Peter. That even looks like the way his face is drawn, the profile looks the same. But maybe that's the point.
Either way, we know it isn't going to be a 616 version of Miles Morales.
XavierLehnsherr - 10/12/2012, 4:43 PM
Flash Thompson.
Mrcool210 - 10/12/2012, 4:45 PM
just wait and see, he might suprise us, although i doubt it
theboywonder - 10/12/2012, 4:46 PM
Who the hell is that?
BigDamnHero - 10/12/2012, 4:46 PM
Hmmm... That is all I have to say about this.
rbfn04 - 10/12/2012, 4:47 PM
Superior Spider-Man is here to stay. Embrace change!
BobGarlen - 10/12/2012, 4:49 PM
Either it's:
1.) New Ben Reilly
2.) Kaine
3.) Flash Thompson
4.) Miguel O Hara from the future.
RobinNumbah6 - 10/12/2012, 4:50 PM
Well, I guess it isnt Miles Morales
TheAmazingAvenger - 10/12/2012, 4:55 PM
I agree with the other users. I also think it's gonna be Kaine -_-
sciencefriction - 10/12/2012, 4:56 PM
Yeah.. it's definitely Kane, the talons give it away.. Marvel you suck so hard.
luckylu - 10/12/2012, 5:00 PM
pete should mop the floor with this mofo. on a side note i didnt realize that all you needed was to wear the mask and mj will sleep with you..
exodus147 - 10/12/2012, 5:03 PM
Kaine seems pretty obvious.
marvel72 - 10/12/2012, 5:05 PM
gonna give this title a chance,it might be good.
OdinsBeard - 10/12/2012, 5:05 PM
can't have enough black and red spider-men! /sarcasm
Franshu - 10/12/2012, 5:07 PM
Flash thompson, Alpha, or Kaine. Or it's Peter after all, and Slott wasjust trying to get fans upset for God knows what reason
Franshu - 10/12/2012, 5:09 PM
Or it could be the 616 version of Miles mOrales... at the ending of Spider-Men, Peter googled him and looked surprised. Maybe he's another clone? Since the whole Spider-Man story seems to be getting all 90's-ish (agh...), I wouldn't be surprised
Mattco44 - 10/12/2012, 5:10 PM
I'm pretty sure Kaine is still going to be Scarlet Spider. Unless there are plans for Scarlet Spider to be canceled.

The Superior Spider-Man: the sexist hero who dominates hapless women for his own pleasure!
SpideyQuad - 10/12/2012, 5:13 PM
OR… A mind altered Peter Parker
SpideyQuad - 10/12/2012, 5:15 PM
can McCain make Physical contact with people?
AmazingFantasy - 10/12/2012, 5:18 PM
I'm sure of it. I'd be good with him, he's a clone fater all.

@SpideyQuad- You could be onto somrthing buddy.
jimpinto24 - 10/12/2012, 5:25 PM
If done done right I don't mind a costume change. But taking thr Spider-Man comics down a dark road, putting claws on Spider-Man, and replacing Peter Parker is ridiculous! Even having MJ Watson as the new Spider-Man's love intrest doesn't make me want to by this title.
Space - 10/12/2012, 5:28 PM
Kaine is Scarlet and Flash is Venom. I thought it might be Eddie, but he was extremely burned and left with Toxin. My guess is Alpha?
mawilli4 - 10/12/2012, 5:32 PM
Kaine or Flash. Flash is losing control of Venom in SS #10, so perhaps he gets powers some how and has to ditch the Symbiote.
AlSimmons - 10/12/2012, 5:32 PM
Ancar - 10/12/2012, 5:49 PM
That's Peter older brother, Ricky Parker!!!
SageMode - 10/12/2012, 5:50 PM

Some comic book fans cant and will not accept change. They want things to stay the same for all eternity. Lol. Smh.
Psyche - 10/12/2012, 5:56 PM
I think Spidey will still be Peter Parker. Only catch there is no Peter, he "dies" in 700. Peter fakes his death to become Spider-Man full time
Temple - 10/12/2012, 5:59 PM
Strong possibility its ben reilly. I'll wait and see.

To everyone: Not kaine, he lives in Houston, Texas, he took up the scarlet spider mantle and protects the people there. Not Flash, he was never bitten by a spider, a symbiote gives him all the powers and abilities, remember that. Not andrew AKA Alpha, he's younger than peter or mj and he has no spider abilities what so ever.
redsonjustin - 10/12/2012, 6:27 PM
Judging by the skin color, we know it's not Miles Morales.
drwalle - 10/12/2012, 6:32 PM
Looks like what a cosplay fanboy would do to a hot chick at a convention.
Nerdman3000 - 10/12/2012, 6:32 PM
It's Peter, only he fakes his death. Peter Parker is Peter Parker no more. Or at least I hope.
ScottScottScott - 10/12/2012, 6:57 PM
@Halloween Jack.. he'd have to come beack from ashes and no one in the Marvel Universe can d... Oh never mind Colossus already did that.... So eh why not Ben Reilly.
xstryker - 10/12/2012, 7:01 PM
It's Alpha right?
JredTheRed - 10/12/2012, 7:03 PM
so have they ever said whats up with the end of Spider-men? with 616 miles?
SecretAvenger001 - 10/12/2012, 7:09 PM
No Peter Parker No Spider-Man!
Sargerus - 10/12/2012, 8:18 PM
Jesus Christ... Slott and Quesada are the worst things that ever happened to poor Spidey :/
supernaturalfreak - 10/12/2012, 8:19 PM
are you freaking kidding me? does the guy writing know anything about spiderman? did he just pay off marvel to let him do whatever the frick he wants with the property
Grievo - 10/12/2012, 8:33 PM
its Harry Osborne. No, seriously.
OtakuPapi - 10/12/2012, 8:52 PM
like i said yesterday obvious Miguel O Hara with those hand claws that would be awesome
