Go Back to the Future with SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #32-33

Surely you didn't think SpOck's story was completely over, did you?

Remember that scene in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #19? When word came out of C2E2 that we'd see the return of the Superior Spider-Man costume and it would't be Peter in it, we immediately thought of that scene and the unresolved plot point. Where the heck did SpOck go? What did he do? Looks like we might be finding out when SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN returns!

Because YOU demanded it! The fan-favorite series returns for a limited time in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #32 and #33! But how is the Superior Spider-Man still around? Otto Octavius ceded control of Peter Parker‘s brain back to Peter and erased all remnants of himself, didn’t he? Find out for yourself as the explosive creative team of Dan Slott, Christos Gage, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Adam Kubert take the Superior Spider-Man on a journey into the far future!

As Otto Octavius finds himself stranded in the year 2099 with no way home, he’ll unearth a mystery that will have fans guessing all the way until the epic SPIDER-VERSE event kicks off this November! A mystery that stretches all the way back to the classic Superior Spider-Man #19! We did say Spider-Verse would feature “every Spider-Man ever” after all – and the Superior Spider-Man is no exception as you can see in the fully revealed variant cover poster!

“You didn’t think Spider-Man’s greatest villain would be gone just like that, did you?” asks Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “All of the metaphorical birds Dan Slott has been letting loose are coming home to roost leading up to Spider-Verse and the Edge of Spider-Verse can be found in these issues!”

How was Otto flung into the future? How will he return? And what happened while he was there? Find out as the blockbuster series that kept fans talking until the very end returns for a senses-shattering encore this fall in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #32 and #33!

Wow, this looks exciting. Seems a bit too much like DC's Future's End though.

@sighburr_punk: Well, this idea was put in place last October in the issue.

Either way, from what I've read so far, I'd rather read this than Future's End.

Excellent. This makes me very happy. Thanks Spider-man team.

SPOCK IS BACK?

Dammit Slott leave the desecration of Spider-Man's history dead and buried 6 feet under. He's ruined Spider-Man for me and now he can't leave his pet project behind -_-

I wouldn't say so. Many spider-fans, myself included, are not fans of Ramos' art more often than not.

Anyway this looks pretty cool. Superior really wasn't that bad as a character. However, time travel? Marvel and time travel makes my head hurt, they do it way too much.

Why do I get the feeling Spider-Verse is going to come down to Morlun fighting Peter, SpOck, and Kaine? Possibly Miles too, it does say every Spider-Man.

WAIT WAIT WAIT

What happened in #19

and HOW ARE THEY GONNA PUT 2 ISSUES IN TRADE

Posted by Maddpanda531

@master_thief: It'll probably just be collected in the Spider-Verse trade, since it's like a prelude.

thank god!!

This is too sweet. Can't wait to read this. Dan Slott is okay by me for making Superior Spidey so cool. He was after all a tech focused anti-vilain so it will be worth seeing him test his mettle against the threats of the not too distant future, somewhere in time and space.

New working issue titles: Superior Cash-Grab #32-33.

Posted by entropy_aegis

HAHA. For what it's worth I like Spock,but he's not Spider-Man not even close,give him his own identity and I'm certain fans will be far more receptive.

At least the guy has his own identity, meaning that every time he does something stupid peter can be free.

...So, they were lying when they said #31 was a final issue. I'm actually happy about that. Marvel has done way too many reboots lately, and I much prefer this to be a continuation of the old numbering rather than Superior Spider-Man vol. 2 #1. Sounds like a cool story too.

Posted by comedy_brosUSA

why is Earth X in this, but when he goes to the time period it's 2099? also, Dan Slott is doing as much as he can to stretch out SSM for as long as possible. If spock is in Spider-verse I will be very unhappy. but I'll have to read the two issues to figure it out

Posted by Jakkoaks

All right im glad theyre getting to his disappearance and of course he was gonna be in spiderverse it would lead to some great interactions . looking forward to all of this.

Posted by DrellAssassin

YEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! This is the best comic related news I could ever hope for. Superior Spider-Man was too great of a character to just throw away, and I hope this ends with him and Anna Marie to be reunited. Man I'm excited. The haters can have Peter, and us fans get our SpOck. Everyone wins.

I demand an ongoing Superior Spider-Man series!

I'm in lol i loved Superior Spider-man and can't wait for Spider-verse i just hope it's not another spider-island -_-

@fallschirmjager:

Hate to break it to ya kid but your opinion isn't fact especially when you're on the minority. Fans speak with their dollar and Superior sold insanely well it would keep coming in the top 3 best selled comics of the week. You're a narrowminded kid whose afraid of change ok that's the way you are but you don't speak for everyone.

Ironically I find most people who throw out words like "kid, boy" etc - are in fact children themselves.

@fallschirmjager:

Not really ironic unless i was a kid but i'm not a kid also great rebuttal top notch.

We definetly need Spock as time-anomaly.

Looks like I'll be reading Spider-Man again. Thank god for SpiderOck's return.

well idk if it counts, because this technically happened in issue 19, like ...."what happened when he dissapeared" His story truly ended with 31 didn't it?

Edited by mje360

YES! I was hoping that plot would be resolved and would stretch out Superior Spider-Man even after Peter returned! So this will mean we will get the best of both worlds in Spider Verse, Amazing and Superior. I would enjoy seeing Superior Spidey facing Morlun and meeting other spider men. Whatever happens, I am definitely will be getting these issues.

Posted by Wowlock

I am CERTAIN fans demanded a lot more different things other than SpOck returning ... yet being ignored... Man I hate the hype and ''fan-favorite'' buzz-words just to fool people... It lost all its meaning to me ... along with '' WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING FOREVER '' ...

seconded!!

Posted by Paste_Pot_Pete

Interesting. I'll be picking this up.

Edited by imredjimmy

More Superior is always good since I really enjoy the series but I'm anxious to see how they will put those issues in trade since that the way I read my comics. Someone above mentioned that they will probably put it in Spider-Verse. Let's hope so...

Am I the only one hoping after Spiderverse Otto goes away Permanently?

No you are 1 of billions of people on this earth, there is without a doubt someone who agrees.

I however do not agree, Love superior spider-man i hope he stays forever (not going to happen)

Edited by feargalr

Yes yes yes. I was really hoping that Otto would find a way to cheat Peter coming back, a clone or something.. This is something for know. Lets hope the reason why Otto gave the body back to Pete so easily is explained here!

Welp, I'm a happy man today :p

I have to admit, I laughed. Slott has a lot of nerve (I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out he wrote that solicit). This will be a couple of issues of SpOck and in the environment he's in, it looks cool enough for me to stay interested. I am curious about how this might/will intersect with 2099 Spidey.
