PETER PARKER RETURNS in new ‘AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1’ in April.
Marvel business formula for last four years. Break status quo with new issue #1. Return to status quote with new issue #1. Break status quo with new #1. Return to status quo in time for movie tie-in with new issue #1. Peter Parker is the latest character to tote this contrived rock, though I’m glad for his return.
Spider-Man has had a decent stay as a “Superior” hero, but now it’s time to get back to basics and become “Amazing” once again. Following the leak that Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos will launch a new “Amazing Spider-Man” series as a part of All-New Marvel NOW! later this year, The New York Daily News has not only confirmed the series’ existence, but revealed that Peter Parker will be back in control of his body by the series’ April debut.
“We’ve gone over 30 issues without Peter Parker, so when we let him out of that box and he gets to put on that costume again and he gets to swing through the sky, it’s going to be the greatest feeling,” Slott told the New York Daily News
The publication was unclear whether Slott moving on to “Amazing Spider-Man” signals the end of “Superior Spider-Man.” Furthermore, no details were given on what might happen to the “Superior” sister titles — “Superior Foes of Spider-Man” and “Superior Spider-Man Team-Up” — should “Superior Spider-Man” end its series run. It’s likely Marvel will have more news in that direction as “Amazing’s” release date approaches.
