COMICS: Stephen Wacker Addresses The Controversial Events Of SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #9
Superior Spider-Man senior editor shares his thoughts on the recent shake-up in the title which many have argued is as shocking and controversial as the events of Amazing Spider-Man #700. Read on for details! [MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD]
In an interview with Newsarama, Stephen Wacker has shared his thoughts on the shocking events of Superior Spider-Man #9. As we told you yesterday, the issue saw Otto Octavius emerge victorious in his battle for control with Peter Parker and the latter was then erased (leaving Doctor Octopus as the one and only "Superior" Spider-Man). "We’ve had to give a certain amount of screen-time to Pete every issue, but that will no longer be the case," he confirmed. "Basically keeping Pete’s 'spirit' has helped the medicine go down over the past few months of big changes, but now that Dan, Ryan, Humberto [Ramos] and [Giuseppe Camuncoli] have everyone hooked it’s time to bring the focus solely onto our main character: the all-new Superior Spider-Man." Considering the fact that Otto also deleted Peter's memories from the golden Octobot, he now really is gone and this appears to be the status quo moving forward. As for how he feels about the revelation that Peter tried to stop Otto from operating on a little girl to avoid being detected, he said, "I guess that will be up to each reader to interpret, but from my vantage point Peter Parker was interesting for 50 years because of the mistakes he made. He’s not stainless, he’s not perfect. There are plenty of examples over 700+ issues where his behavior was less than exemplary. I hope readers are troubled by Pete’s actions. I know I was."
