Spider-Man Prepares To Enter The Dark Reign

American Son is set to bring Spidey some bad times.



With Norman Osborn leading the Dark Avengers, you would think that there would be some major repercussions in Amazing Spider-ManSpider-Man, of all people, truly knows how whacked Norman is.  The guy is a few bananas short of a bunch.  We've also heard about the upcoming "American Son" storyline. 

Who is the American Son?  What are his ties to the Dark Avengers?  This story arc runs in Amazing Spider-Man # 595 (on sale on May 27) through issue #599.  Phil Jimenez provides the art (for 595).  There will also be "special incentives" available for retailers.

Here's a look at the first part.  Click each image to enlarge.



I wonder if that's really Spider-Man attacking Norman or if it's Venom (Mac Gargon) posing as him in public.

I wonder if he'll have his hair and eyeliner from Spider-Man 3?

You mean he hasn't, yet?

I really have no idea why, but I have the feeling Peter is the American Son... You guys remember that pic of Norman standing next to the eagle-lookin guy? I reckon it might be Pete... And for whatever reason, he's being forced to work for Osborn.

Well whenever the "New Avengers" have made an "appearance" in Spidey so far, it's just been Wolverine.

Looks awesome!

I am excited for this big time.  Joe Kelly writing Spidey vs. Top Cop will be awesome.

It should be excellent. Norman once again proves he's a deplorable swine.

This should prove interesting.

I think American son either has something to do with the original Captain America (perhaps his "son" eh? eh?) is Harry Osborn or John Jameson.

i think American Son is Harry Osborn and that he will either work with is father or against him

Finally, Dark Reign meets Spidy front and center.

Judging from the looks it appears Spidey will be confronting the devil responsible for much of his woes none other than the trash known as Green Goblin (Norman Osborne).

Maybe even Flash?!

Now that would be a shocker.

American Son is Speedball. Mystery over.

I wonder if that's Harry as Green Goblin, or Norman. I'll find out in the story.
