COMICS: SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN Is Apparently Not Who We Thought It Was

A while ago we posted (what we thought was) a massive SPOILER regarding the identity of Dan Slott's Superior Spider-Man, but now it seems we might have been mistaken. Read on find out the details - as long as you don't mind being potentially spoiled by the previous spoiler..geddit?..

First off, Dan Slott REALLY doesn't want us to know the identity of the character prematurely - so much so that he has Tweeted the following..



Bleeding Cool picked up on this, and along with the story revealed that they knew who the character was and that they weren't about to tell - BUT, it wasn't the person we had previously thought it was. Who was that person? Well, just in case, we are still gonna run this as a potential spoiler so..

Highlight this txt to find out - None other than Miguel O'Hara, aka Spider-Man 2099!

So just to be clear, apparently the Superior Spider-Man is NOT the person above. So who is he? Well, even if we knew we wouldn't risk being blocked by Mr Slott would we? So let the speculation begin anew!

I'm highlighting, but I'm not seeing anything.
GoILL - 11/13/2012, 11:38 AM
I thought the guy mentioned in the spoiler was already revealed to be in the Superior Spider-Man.
Lazenca - 11/13/2012, 11:40 AM
^^^^Your avatar and your comment made me lol. It looks like Hulk is complaining that he can't see the spoiler!
mk - 11/13/2012, 11:40 AM
yeah wasnt this spoiled already?
marvel72 - 11/13/2012, 11:49 AM
i thought everyone knew this or has my mutant ability finally revealed itself.

i can see into the future.
DioFoRio - 11/13/2012, 11:49 AM
[frick] you Marvel like a whiny bitch
DioFoRio - 11/13/2012, 11:49 AM
I like the goggle look to the eyes.
maxxgone - 11/13/2012, 11:49 AM
i feeling its gonna stay as peter parker, but somehow infused with o'hara's physical attributes & abilities.
AC1 - 11/13/2012, 11:50 AM
Peter is the only Spidey. Why can't we say that @LEVITIKUZ, it's a genuine, legitimate opinion, and it's not being disrespectful to anyone.

It might be Harry Osborn.
DioFoRio - 11/13/2012, 11:50 AM
If it is Miguel ...how did he get here? Through a 360 or PS3?
Bark4Soul - 11/13/2012, 11:50 AM
Haha someone on here called it a few weeks back, can't remember who though, STUPID gimmick tho
DioFoRio - 11/13/2012, 11:51 AM
MORBIUS!!!!!
AC1 - 11/13/2012, 11:52 AM
I like the new costume though, except the claws and the spiky 'belt'. If the belt section was like the classic costume, it'd be a winner in my book. A slightly more simplified version of the classic costume, plus the tabi boots would be practical considering Spidey's powers, and the eyes are cool too.

Prediction number 2: It's Peter Parker but he's using an alias (maybe fakes his death in the last issue of Amazing?). Maybe he starts calling himself Ben Reilly?
spider1489 - 11/13/2012, 11:53 AM
I will only will be able to except kaine as the new spidey, it only makes sense since they are saying the new spidey is darker, kaine is already a dark spidey, and new spidey is with mary jane, well only makes sense kaine would have a thing for mj since he is peters clone ( plus there are way too many spider heros so just reuse one! dont make another!) wait ! what if ben riely comes back! hmmmmmmmm
jimpinto24 - 11/13/2012, 11:53 AM
Don't care! Don't like the direction Dan Slott is taking the SSM comics!
AC1 - 11/13/2012, 11:55 AM
I hope new Spidey gets his arse handed to him by Peter Parker.
oneill5299 - 11/13/2012, 11:56 AM
Call me crazy but I think Superior Spider-Man will actually be Peter Parker with Doc Ocs mind/personality. Stay with me.

Doc OC has been dying for some time now and that will all colminate the the upcoming issue. At the end of ends of the earth we see one of Doc Ock's mind controlling devices walk away from the wreckage, I think he will use this device to transfer his consiounous to Spider-Man/Peter Parker's body. Leaving Peter's mind in a dying Doc Ock's body. Now Peter needs to find a cure or a way to transfer is mind back into his body. This is a way you could potentially save Doc Ock and create a new dynmaic for Peter Parker/Spider-Man, the supporting cast and his greatest villian.
spider1489 - 11/13/2012, 12:02 PM
@oneille5299 I CALL YOU CRAZY! but......... hmmmm that would be a really interesting take on spidey, i guess we need to just wait and see
siggisuperman - 11/13/2012, 12:05 PM
@Oneill I don't know if thats what it will be, but thats a story I want to read.
Hero020200 - 11/13/2012, 12:06 PM
I think it may be Spidey from 2099, Morbius or (and I know we havn't seen this guy in decades) Prowler... Could be possible...
rebellion - 11/13/2012, 12:10 PM
@youareanidiot amen to that. exactly how i feel.
dancingmonkey08 - 11/13/2012, 12:10 PM
ok so its not Miguel O Hara....who is it?

I would love Miguel to become the mainstream Spider-Man someday but actually closer to the real 2099
theHuch - 11/13/2012, 12:10 PM
Mysterio
JordanKing - 11/13/2012, 12:13 PM
Screw it, I bet its Harry Osborne under there. What's happened to him anyway?
FirstAvenger - 11/13/2012, 12:19 PM
It was proven back in Spider-Man 2.1
luckylu - 11/13/2012, 12:27 PM
sounds more like he is just pissed that the word got out. my hunch is that it is still ohara and slott is doing some damage control
Spideyguy94 - 11/13/2012, 12:30 PM
@youareanidiot and rebellion amen to that guys
Spideyguy94 - 11/13/2012, 12:34 PM
Maybe the new spider-man's motivation is he wants to [frick] mj. That is slotts schtick
jingorot - 11/13/2012, 12:37 PM
there may have been others in the role in the past, but you don't (or at least shouldn't) [frick] around with the big three:

clark kent as superman
bruce wayne as batman
peter parker as spider-man

changing them is like saying: let's replace harrison ford as indiana jones, sylvester stallone as rocky, anthony hopkins as hannibal lecter, mark hamill as luke skywalker, bruce campbell as ash, bruce willis as john mcclane, johnny depp as captain jack sparrow etc etc.

some of these you may not like. there may be other versions of some (lecter, batman, spidey etc). and in some cases, the character/superhero-name is bigger than the actor/man-behind-the-mask: james bond, flash, green lantern. but sometimes, the actor/man-behind-mask is a MAJOR part of what makes the character iconic. and taking that actor/man-behind-mask out of the equation leaves behind a character/superhero-name that doesn't even mean the same thing anymore.

i like dick grayson more than bruce wayne. but bruce wayne, his name, his personality, who he is, is a MAJOR part of batman's iconic image. and thus, bruce wayne is the true batman. because without him, it essentially, isn't the character that is iconic.

same for peter parker. i enjoy miguel o'hara. but peter parker's name, personality, life history are synonymous with spider-man and a BIG part of the iconic image.

thus, without a shadow of doubt: peter parker IS spider-man
thebearjew - 11/13/2012, 12:38 PM
@thefirstavenger97 its definatley j jonah jameson jr!
By the way im. Ot a big fan of multiple identities of our heros or villians
thebearjew - 11/13/2012, 12:39 PM
no matter who it is theyre going to sell tons of issues frm it
duoblade - 11/13/2012, 12:43 PM
Please please please pleeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaase Ben Reilly. I wouldn't be surprised though if it's someone from Horizon Labs.
DrDoom - 11/13/2012, 12:49 PM
It's Uncle Ben.
marckos - 11/13/2012, 12:49 PM
KAINE
toco89 - 11/13/2012, 12:51 PM
@jingorot

You're right. And because of that they'll tell you that you're wrong. Because 'some people are too stuck in the past', 'cuz you're afraid of change', 'and change like this is good'. Wether it has any real logic at any rate, is not so important, cuz they don't care.

Now if it was something they fancied. [frick] no. But that's why they take the offensive on something that doesn't even matter in theit lives. But its just a comic book after all.

So why so serious?
rogmel - 11/13/2012, 1:06 PM
Peter Parker, but turned into a living vampire by Morbius.

JamesAsAlways - 11/13/2012, 1:10 PM
I have no idea who the new Spider-Man is, I hope it isn't Kaine, I enjoy the Scarlet Spider too much.
The costume reminds me of some concept art I saw for Spider-Man Noir, especially the eyes.

dellamorte1872 - 11/13/2012, 1:10 PM
already said this...it's FLASH duh? think WHAT IF? vol. 1
rogmel - 11/13/2012, 1:13 PM
@JamesAsAlways

I'd never seen that before. I'm glad they stuck with black costume and goggles.

Pretty awesome design for a later incarnation of SM Noir, though. Assuming they ever make any more of the whole Noir series. They were great reads.
