Preview: SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #9

Get a first look at the upcoming issue!

Whoa, whoa, whoa there, Dan Slott! Marvel has sent us info on #9 and it's called "SUPERIOR NO MORE." Apparently, this issue will deliver a change to the Spider-Man mythos just as big as ASM #700 and determine who will be left as the "true" Spider-Man. Does this mean Ock's getting kicked out... or will he fully take over and remain as Spider-Man -- you know, at least until they probably need Peter back to help promote The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Check out the creative cover by Marcos Martin and two pages from the always awesome Ryan Stegman below.

SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #9 comes out 05/01/13.

Peter, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Come home to me!

LOOOKS SICK!!

Edited by Oscars94

Please bring back Peter! Let him right Otto's wrongs!

Hmmmmm, very interesting. Give us more pages Marvel/Stegman !

Hmmm, whats up with the school with the crazy letters?

My guess: Ock "fully" eradicates Peter until a month or two before ASM2

Edited by wmwadeii

And next week they announce Amazing Spider-man 701.

Here's hoping post One More Day Peter dies this Doc Ock thing end's and either Miguel O'Hara,

Ben Reilly or Miles Morales replaces him.

Posted by stetson12

I hope Peter wins in the end, although this doc ock as spiderman has been kind of interesting.

Edited by tjx_penn

im actually liking ottos run at this. yea hes a little arrogant, but hes learning. not to mention bettering petes life.

Edited by ivolution2k1

love the cover

Posted by StMichalofWilson

I think it's going to end with two minds becoming one. The Superior Spider-Man will have a split personality.

Edited by butters911

Im glad Stegman is staying on the book. I thought he was gonna pull a Tony More on Deadpool

Posted by Uncommon

But wasn't Ock spider man in age of ultron? And isn't AU the future? So maybe dock just wipes peter's ghost out of his conscience. real peter wasn't in the AU issue.

Here's hoping for Miguel O'Hara though

I have no faith in marvel and I don't think this will end the way anyone wants it to.

@saranth: Precisely.

@teerack: I know what everyone wants, and so does Marvel, but you're right, it will probably go the other way.

At this point as long as Peter is Peter and doesn't have his mind permanently changed by merging with Ocks or something equally awful. I could care less if Peter gets to die a hero or just flat out quits. I just hate the idea of his identity and character being stolen and twisted. Hell I wouldn't mind Peter losing his powers and letting Ben Riley, Miles Morales, Kane Parker, or Anya Sofía Corazón take over as the new Spider-man. Hell I wouldn't mind if there was no Spider-man and they came out with a book called The Amazing Alpha.

Ock was Spidey in the Superior Spider-Man Age of Ultron tie in. Peter was Spidey in Bendis's actual Age of Ultron comic. Yes, it makes no sense.

And Age of Ultron happens now, not in the future.

Edited by redhood21

Ben Reilly prob wont happen, but id love to see it. I was hoping ock spidey would run into kaine.

Posted by Kerrigan

Regardless of what happens with Superior Spider-Man, Pete will ultimately be Spidey again. Might take a while, though.

Marvel's solicitations for this particular ish ("it will make you so angry!") don't fill me with much optimism for the short term.

They explained it as Spock pretending to be Peter.

Yeah, unconvincingly. He changes costume between the issues (in AoU he has Pete's paler blue, without the split toes of SSM), and why would he drop this pretense in his own book but not Bendis's?

Posted by AWeekInGeekdom

My theory? Ock gets a new body and becomes a new Spider-clone ala Ben Reilly in the 90s. lol

Edited by Uncommon

Seriously now, what is so great about Ben Reilly? He was okay back when he was spider-man, but it would be a waste to use him as the the new spidey when he's just blonde Peter Parker. If when he does come back I think it would far more interesting to see him trying to break away from that identity as the perfect clone, become his own man.

From what I hear certain writers didn't even want to use Spock but they have no choice. I'm guessing this is the result.

im rooting for doc ock for now. i want this to be a long term change that lasts for a couple of years. so kick peter parkers a$# doc ock and keep him trapped for a little longer!

Posted by AWeekInGeekdom

If anything this might lead to yet another costume change (judging by that Ramos art on the Spider-Week promo released last friday).

Posted by MythiiC

I've really enjoyed Superior Spiderman - Tbh, I've treated it as a story arc, the last battle between Peter & Ock and it becomes the highlight of my week each time I pick a new issue up! :D

Edited by Johnnyjavavee

That cover is beautiful. Marcos should just do every superior cover. Ramos last cover was horribly unattractive.

Posted by Scarlet_Spider_Forever

Maybe this will be the one issue I buy of SSM! And maybe it'll be the last one if ock takes over! Find out next ladies and gentlemen!

Edited by Smart_Dork_Dude

COME BACK PETER!!!!!!!!!! WE MISS YOU!!! SANDY MISSES YOU!! EVEN SQUIDWARD MISSES YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by hyenascar

Wanda guest stars, and says :" No more Peter Parker."

Posted by spideybigtime

can't wait for this.But it would be cool to see Ock being Spider-man a little longer than this.

Posted by AmazingSpidey_707

Is that telekinesis???

Posted by Gotham331

Not impressed

Posted by TheMultiverse

What will be interesting is not pete getting his body back, but pete explaining why he killed someone to the avengers LOL. ....and why he beat wolverine to a pulp.

Posted by Johnnyjavavee
Posted by mettlekm

Maybe Mephisto just says the whole SpOck thing didn't happen and Ock is once again alive, healthy and youthful. All they have to do is find someone, fall in love, and be willing to dump her, and they can get anything they want!! muhahahahaha

Edited by haydenclaireheroes

Doc Ock being in Pete's brain can be an interesting issue

Edited by mtrakos

cool cover, lame idea. You remember when Spider-man was fun to read?

Hmmmmm, very interesting. Give us more pages Marvel/Stegman !

Hmmm, whats up with the school with the crazy letters?

Sometimes in a dream you can't read properly because the part of your brain for reading and dreaming are not on the same side of your brain.

Posted by Zeeguy91

This...could actually be worth a pick up.

Edited by sparty-dbq

The way Slott's been pissing all over Peter's good name and legacy, I wouldn't be surprised if Otto fully purges Peter's consciousness, then celebrates by doing a line of coke off a hooker's ass.

Posted by jashro44

He isn't coming back. Not yet.

The ghost Peter shold never have happened

It's such a sad thing to see a good writer like Slott bring Peter down and ruin his excellent writing streak. Yet even good writers can fall that much is certain. What makes it worse is that even if Slott does get rid of Peter and keep SpOck completely, it'll be meaningless since Peter will be back a month or 2 before Amazing Spider-Man 2 to promote it or maybe even sooner. On the other hand, if Peter returns now, this'll demean the whole concept and point of Superior Spider-Man. Either way, it's a lose lose situation in my eyes.
