First Look: SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #24 - "Darkest Hours" Continues

Superior Spider-Man vs Venom. Plus, who is the "Superior Venom"?

There are some dark times headed to the pages of SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN. With Venom appearing, and the fact that his series has ended, there's really no telling what might happen. Marvel has released a first look at issue 24. As they say, "This clash isn't going to be pretty!"

This December, Spider-Man battles his greatest foes as Darkest Hours continues in Superior Spider-Man #24 – from the critically acclaimed creative team of Dan Slott & Humberto Ramos! Nobody has tested Peter Parker quite like Venom – will Otto Octavius face the same perils? Flash Thompson is back in town for his first run-in with the Superior Spider-Man! And this clash isn’t going to be pretty! But even as the wallcrawlers clash – the Green Goblin and his army prepare to make their move. Plus, the answer to the question everyone will be asking – “Who is the Superior Venom?!” You do not want to miss Superior Spider-Man #24!

Looks so cool. Though I'm not sure how much more of a jerk Ock could be if the symbiote lands on him for a bit. He's kind of already like symbiote peter.

Did anyone else see a Bear in a Metal Hulk Like Suit?

totally didn't catch how that was Ock til i read the comments

The superior venom does have an interesting look, but I can't read anymore Superior Spider-man. I really dislike what they've done. To me the whole point of reading a Spidey comic was the way he made jokes while fighting the bad guys, the problems he faced and overcame despite everything that went wrong in his life. That element doesn't exist anymore. I look forward to the day that Peter comes back for good.

Who is the Superior Venom? Well, I suppose it'd have to be someone who is

  • wearing a costume just like Spider-Ock's (with symbiote trappings, natch)
  • using spider-bots and Otto's soldiers
  • desirable enough to the symbiote that it would leave Flash Thompson
  • an interesting host in the context of a title that's all about the differences between Otto and Peter
  • taking up several pages in a Superior Spider-Man preview that contains no Superior Spider-Man

Quite the mystery.

Damn I truly miss the Venom series, i'd wish they would had actually let it reach 50. Glad to know wont be picking this after the greatness Rick and Bunn did in the series..this is feels lame. Oh well hope other people enjoy it, cause I know I wont give a damn about this arc.

Posted by Rubear

O, sorry. I should say Superior Bearman.

@laflux: Wait it has a name O.o???????????

Edited by Shallbecomeabattoo

@tigerex78: I know what you mean, but for me its the other way around. No Peter Parker Spidey comic, since the JMS run and Millars Marvel Knights series has done anything for me... I hated Dan Slott on the book... until Superior Spidey. I love this book so much! For me, it will be a sad day when Peter comes back. Spock is so much more interesting to me.

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

I would have preferred if they didn't do the webs on the head and shoulders like the classic black suit but this is till pretty cool. I'm a tad .... excited .... to read this. Crap.

Armoured bears..........i had to expect this.

That Bear Needs a Symbiote STAT!!!

Edited by ngrey651

Unfortunately as long as Dan Slott can continue to play the "SALES SALES IGNORE THE ATTRITION THING THATS NORMAL'" card we're not gonna see an end to this "Superior Spider Man" thing. Alas. ;(

That art....

Posted by TheLaughingFish

If the symbiote cant figure out that its not Peter than I've had it.
Professor X (God rest his bald soul) probably couldnt figure out that he's ock.
I guess I'll have to wait till Dan Slott brings Peter's soul back in Uncle Ben's body with Doc Ock's legs as part of another major Marvel "event" till anyone actually notices that somethings not quite right with spidervillain.

Posted by Phaedrusgr

Oh, Otto is the Original Superior Venom...I'm propa hyped (not at all, another boring day in the boring kingdom of Boredomia)...

Posted by mattwing87

I love Ramos's art :)

Edited by Dstick88

excited for this! I truly dont understand why people dont like superior, each issue i cant wait for the next.

Posted by GrenadeFlow

I don't know how I feel about this, I hope it turns out good.

I wonder, are they going to give Mania's symbiote to SpOck? Or are they actually going to remove it from Flash?

Posted by Burns2k

I want Flash to kick the shit out of SpOck

Edited by jasonakaslv

The symbiote is "in love with Peter Parker" do you think it will reject Spock because it will know its not the same mind!? @g_man

Posted by Blues32

I'm sick of this Superior Spider-Man nonsense. It's making me sick, all the damage Ock is doing to Spidey's rep. How is Pete ever going to hang around Wolverine now? How's he going to maintain Cap's trust? It's all wrong...
