COMICS: THE SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN Takes Down Wolverine In New Artwork

The identity of the "Superior" Spider-Man has been leaked online, but fear not, this artwork from Avenging Spider-Man #16 spoils nothing! It does however reveal that the man behind the mask is most definitely NOT a fan of Wolverine. Check it out!

I will of course check out Amazing Spider-Man #700, and despite absolutely HATING what I've read about what happens in the issue, I'll MAYBE give Dan Slott one issue of The Superior Spider-Man to show me where he's going with this whole thing. However, I find it hard to imagine that I'll be picking up anything Spidey related next year... depressing considering the fact I've been reading the characters various titles for over a decade.

Don't care! But the artwork is nice.
xfactor - 12/16/2012, 6:10 PM
meh.
0bstreperous - 12/16/2012, 6:12 PM
There's no way I would read a comic where evil over comes good

And reading that thing about hitch being excluded for the Jason Aaron horrible avx clique makes me sick
druzod2501 - 12/16/2012, 6:13 PM
so... who's under the mask?
theInvincibleMexiMan - 12/16/2012, 6:17 PM
I'm not a fan of the new Spidey. I'm really upset about the direction Superior Spider-man is going.

why cant it just be Peter Parker?! Why do you do this to me Marvel??
TragicBronson - 12/16/2012, 6:19 PM
Diggin' the art on this. Medina is a boss :)
Darth258 - 12/16/2012, 6:19 PM
Art looks great, though that mask make Spidey look like an owl, not a fan of the new eyes.
And yeah, if there's one who can sense he's not Peter it's Wolverine.
JordanKing - 12/16/2012, 6:22 PM
I know what happens, and I don't like it. Almost like a giant radioactive kick in the balls to all fans of the character across the world.

But hey, at least the AVENGERS are here, there and everywhere. Can't get enough of those clowns.
TonyChu - 12/16/2012, 6:35 PM
So is Amazing Spider-Man officially canceled or is it picking up after this series end? Because if not then Marvel just [frick]ed up a monumental opportunity of hitting #1000, just like DC [frick]ed up with the Batman and Superman comics. They only needed 200 more issues to hit the 1000 mark.
TheRock234 - 12/16/2012, 6:39 PM
so this spider man is doc ock but just switched the brains of peter parker way to end one of the greatest comic books ever dan slott. Also Spider man brand new day sucks ass. How could marvel do that thank god for the ultimate universe.
GLprime2814 - 12/16/2012, 6:40 PM
The marvel universe has about 1000 telepaths, mostly mutants, and none of them can sense something's off with spiderman. All doc ock has been doing is monologue to himself. It would have been better if something happened to PP powers and he called on 2099 for help and it would make Peter a full time scientist, and having all that extra time he could get back with MJ or create more spider gadgets.
TonyChu - 12/16/2012, 6:42 PM
Regarding the identity of Superiror Spider-Man I am just at a stand still. Now when it came to Batman and Captain America being replaced by someone else it felt more natural and fluid. Dick Grayson and Bucky were great replacements for these heroes because these were the people you can imagine replacing Bruce and Steve. Now when it comes to Spider-Man I just don't see it at least in the 616 universe. At this point if it is Miguel or Kaine then I can some what live with it but if it is indeed Doc Ock in Peters body, then I'm sorry that's just all wrong. Peter has been getting the shaft ever since One More Day and has only been represented well in New Avengers.
GLprime2814 - 12/16/2012, 6:42 PM
Oh and spiderman respects "fears" wolverine way to much to just sucker punch him? That's a red flag right there.
GLprime2814 - 12/16/2012, 6:45 PM
@tonychu
Its doc ock.
Doctor octopus mind swapped with spiderman,
AmazingFantasy - 12/16/2012, 6:47 PM
I'm sure the a member in the X-Men with the brain larger than a peanet can sense something is off with Spider-Man.
AmazingFantasy - 12/16/2012, 6:47 PM
Colour me excited
TonyChu - 12/16/2012, 6:51 PM
@GLPrime Yeah I know that Doc Ock switched bodies with Peter I just did not know that it was going to continue on in Superior Spider-Man.
ManofSteel23 - 12/16/2012, 7:00 PM
I dont know if anybody has noticed,but it LOOKS like the image where spidey punches wolverine...they are standing right where the avengers assemble in the film,or near where tony is talking about shwarma,thought id point tht out
BIGGGHEADTJ - 12/16/2012, 7:16 PM
if you want to know who superior spiderman is http://i.imgur.com/HW8Xb.jpg click the link
fanboy03191 - 12/16/2012, 7:17 PM
Been a fan for almost twelve years, and a regular reader of the currrent titles for about six years... A shame that I'm most likely going to be calling it off after this.
MrDonut - 12/16/2012, 7:19 PM
Wolverine better [frick] this poser up!
storyteller - 12/16/2012, 7:22 PM
Does anyone actually remember the 90's because I seem to recall Clones, several superhero personas, and some other nonsense occurring. Some temp replacement........not a big deal in retrospect.
Shadowelfz - 12/16/2012, 7:24 PM
LAME!
CrashTest - 12/16/2012, 7:25 PM
All I know is if Wolverine cant smell that its not Parker its garbage.
ThatFan - 12/16/2012, 7:25 PM
NO! Not another Rulk!
souhunter - 12/16/2012, 7:25 PM
R they all sticking to the wall like spidy?
GoILL - 12/16/2012, 7:29 PM
Not buying this bullshit.
HavocPrime - 12/16/2012, 7:40 PM
@TonyChu - Same here, this does not feel like passing on the mantle at all, it feels more like someone else running around in Peter's meat suit pretending to be him, the best part when Cap and Bruce handed over their mantles was to see how their side kicks made the role there own, can't believe Marvel would agree to this shit.
sciencefriction - 12/16/2012, 7:42 PM
It's a shame Marvel pulled this crap, because I was really enjoying the development of Logan and Peter's relationship. This will definitely ruin all that work. Yet another reason to dislike Slott.
LoudLon - 12/16/2012, 7:49 PM
Now you guys know how I felt back in the 90s when it turned out the Spider-Man I'd been reading since childhood was a clone.

Yeah, they reversed it a while after and made it right but by then, I'd already lost all interest. Haven't read Spidey since.
ATrueHero1987 - 12/16/2012, 7:53 PM
I still can't believe Marvel turned down a Spider-Man book by Joss Whedon & Bryan Hitch. Even if this before he took the job to direct The Avengers, he had a great run on Astonishing X-Men!

smh, anyway, I love the artwork.
StuckInPanels - 12/16/2012, 8:03 PM
I'm probably part of the tiniest margin of fans that is FOR this. I want change. I like the idea of the villain swapping with the hero. Its a change of perspective that may make Doc Ock see just how hard it is to be Spider-man even if he has become "Superior". I think in time we will see Peter Parker coming back, obviously when the new movie comes out. No one said that this change would be permanent. I like the idea of the character taking a break to let the creators develop some fun ideas to explore the character once again. Even if it was Kaine, Miguel, Ben, or any other person under the mask, you all would still hate the idea. Give it a chance
DTor91 - 12/16/2012, 8:05 PM
@Splenda
HAHAHAHA! Let's see you draw better! How in any way does the art here suck? Please enlighten me!
randomdude - 12/16/2012, 8:16 PM
Dan Slott i [frick]ing hate you.
AUSSYACE - 12/16/2012, 8:32 PM
What is up with thoes camel toes on Spidey now and his stupid goggles on his mask that look like hub caps from a car...

HeadPool420 - 12/16/2012, 8:36 PM
Amazing art poop writing!
rbfn04 - 12/16/2012, 9:07 PM
So, Spidey became a Talon? DC/Marvel crossover. ALRIGHT!
maxxgone - 12/16/2012, 9:12 PM
i would just love if a MASSIVE drop in sales happens here. marvel just can't seem to get it through their stupid [frick]ing heads that this is not what we want to be paying $ for.

so let em revel in the tanking of a flagship title.

shock & awe twists like this does not equal good quality writing. it would be even better if nobody went after slott online - just ignore the prick & let him slip away and be forgotten.
xcrementus - 12/16/2012, 9:41 PM
calling it now....

Peter's downloaded mind finds a new home in Kaine's body (which is conveniently an exact copy of his own, plus a couple of stingers) and comes back to reclaim his life.

It explains:
-why Kaine lost his scarring & powers to become EXACTLY like Peter physically
-Why a Scarlet Spider series showed up out of nowhere, (to make us care for Kaine's sacrificing himself to get Peter (the ideal version of himself) back
-why Kaine's life has been entirely seperate from Spidey's world, so that nobody notices that he's gone or even really exists.

Given all that, or something similar, this story could turn out great and really memorable, you guys are only seeing the tip of the iceberg, not the endgame.
