There's been a lot of great things going on in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN since Dan Slott took over. Despite Ends of the Earth wrapping up, there's still more to come. There was an interesting conversation going on last week over Twitter about creators creating new characters for the big publishers versus retaining the rights to them. Slott sees the joy in creating a fresh new character that gets to play around with the rest of the Marvel Universe.

Coming in August, everyone will be asking, "Who the heck is Alpha?" (Yeah, I added the 'heck' in there).

This August, celebrate Spider-Man’s 50 anniversary as the amazing dream team of Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos introduce someone new to the Marvel Universe that will have everyone asking – “Who Is Alpha?”
But in order to find out, you’ll have to be amongst the first to pick up Amazing Spider-Man #692 – the special anniversary issue you’ve been waiting 50 years for!

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #692 (JUN120622)

Written by DAN SLOTT

Art & Cover by HUMBERTO RAMOS

ON SALE AUGUST 2012!

#6 Posted by BlackArmor (6134 posts) - - Show Bio

Not that this doesn't look cool and all, but what the heck is up with the constant teasers?

#7 Posted by Remi (613 posts) - - Show Bio

Clearly it's going to be TOAA since he's the Alpha and Omega.

First thing I thought of was Omega Red. So possibly Alpha Red? Isn't X-Force doing something with a new Omega Red?

Alpha? Do you mean the kid who lasted like 2 panels in a Green Arrow comic?

#23 Posted by waruikumo (357 posts) - - Show Bio

As much as I used to like Ramos's art, the recent ASM stuff has been sub par. Oh well at least they have somewhat consistent writing.

#24 Posted by pspin (891 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh for the love of God please be the return of Patricia Robertson! PLEASE!!!

Or if MJ got legit spider powers for a while, that would be pretty cool as well.

Patricia Robertson is a worthless and generic character from a horribly written story.

:P

Is it Alpha 5 or Alpha 6? Cause Alpha 5 was a quality guy. Alpha 6 was a total douche.

I've never understood the tagline "So-n-so asks: who is X?"  I mean, they're the editors and writers.  Surely they know?

#38 Posted by jaredbright (204 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, Ben Reilly. If it was about Ben coming back, I'd actually pick it up.

The little kid at horizon developing a supersuit or something? perhaps.

I completely disagree she was a good character with great potential and I wish she wasn't stuck in limbo

I wonder why it's a lower-cased alpha?

#44 Posted by Miss_Garrick (1757 posts) - - Show Bio

@War Killer: That is a million, billion, ZILLION times cooler then whatever the real alpha is going to be!

#45 Posted by Miss_Garrick (1757 posts) - - Show Bio

Let me go and check to see if I care...

*leaves computer to check*

*comes back*

Nope, looks like I don't give a *&^#%&^*#@.

Question is, is it a new character, or just a recycled character?

Alpha? He was one of the Little Rascals, right?

#50 Posted by GR2Blackout (2564 posts) - - Show Bio

I honestly hope Alpha is some Kree or maybe Sentry under a new alias. Even though its a NEW character... I'm hopin' Sentry.

Maybe its a new synthezoid like Vision or Ultron... hmmm... Ultron, Vision, Alpha!
