@animehunter Did you see that?!!

The dude said #1-5 .......so she'll be in ALL 5 issues?!! :D

That's great, but it is definitely mostly to do with getting back at Spider-man for what SpOck did to her.

From what I could see, she was debating whether or not THEIR FRIENDSHIP would work. And you could tell, MJ was unsympathetic towards the Doc Ock swap reveal, it didn't change anything.

But I doubt it will last. I believe MJ is kidding herself, they have been down this road before and it ends with her realizing she still loves Peter. At least I hope so. We all love Peter but he's nothing without his supporting cast.

She's solicited in the ASM issues,and she will always be by Peter's side.....are you kidding me?....it's Mary Jane Parker we're talking about!!

By his side yes, but not as someone he can go to when it comes to his Spider-man troubles, at least not for now.

hey at the end of superior #31 when MJ went out of pete's life did she leave with his web shooters?

She still has them and I doubt Peter would have accepted their return, he would want her to keep them for her protection. and she didn't leave his life completely only his life as Spider-man, she is still going to be his friend in his personal life, away from Spider-man.

And she is too ingrained in Peter's life and his family's which means the only way for her to be out of his life completely, is to leave New York altogether, like Carlie did, but like she said "she not letting anyone scare her away"

EXCLUSIVE: Leonardi Covers "Spider-Man 2099" #1

In anticipation of July's "Spider-Man 2099" relaunch at the hands of Peter David and Will Sliney, Marvel Comics has provided CBR with an exclusive first look at one of the variant covers for the debut issue by original "Spider-Man 2099" co-creator Rick Leonardi.

RELATED: David's "Spider-Man 2099" Fights to Reshape the Future

"At the moment I'm cueing off stuff that happened in the recent issues of Spidey," Peter David told CBR in March. "I'll be following up with the Spider Slayers and what happened to them, and are then plunging right into the Spideyverse crossover. And after that, I have some stuff cooking in 2099 that will impact directly on Miguel. I'm really walking a fine line, trying to tell stories that are at once evocative of what's happening in the other Spider books, but simultaneously have the unique feeling of 2099."

Check out Leonardi's cover below.

Dan Slott Explains Everything About Superior Spider-Man #30

Some folks have had trouble getting to grips with what Dan Slott wrote at the end of Superior Spider-Man #30. So, with #31 out tomorrow, what better time for a refresher course.

I have to say I’m with Dan on this. Spoilers, obviously. In fact….

Everything you need is in ASM #700 and SSM #30.

ASM #700 establishes that there’s a link between the two of them (the moment they both have the Uncle Ben alarm clock moment).

Pete thinks: “I MAY need a direct link for a full transfer, but a link still exists.”

Why does he say “may”?

Because when he had the octobot attached to himself, he fought it. And that didn’t help. That’s why he thinks he needed a direct link.

On the very next page, Peter has “his entire life flashing before his eyes”…

…and that is the upload he’s going to send to Ock.

He’s sending him EVERYTHING, but he’s fighting Doc on the key moments– those that REALLY define him as Spider-Man– and doing everything in his power to make sure that those specific moments in the lifetime montage strike home.

(For the sake of argument, let’s say those are 31 key memories).

And, again, Doc Ock FIGHTS AGAINST THIS THE ENTIRE TIME.

In SSM #30, when PETER is reliving all of Doc Ock’s life (and losing his sense of self as he gets overwhelmed by Doc’s memories)…

…he reaches full circle. He’s now at the moment in ASM #700 where Peter/Ock is having HIS life flash before his eyes and he’s uploading that to Doc/Spidey.

At THAT point, we’re in Doc’s head (as is the SSM #30 version of Peter). Doc fights against the upload. But the SSM #30 version of Peter– getting one “taste” of it, realizes that THAT is his life– so he DOESN’T fight it. He welcomes it ALL in. He takes back ALL of ASM #700′s-life-flashing-before-his-eyes-Peter’s memories. And SSM #30-Peter gets it all back.

Basically, it’s a nested-file.

It’s an all-or-nothing DL of all the memories– nested in a memory Doc Ock has.

For the nitpickers who want a reason why Doc didn’t access THAT:

Either Doc Ock DIDN’T know it was there– OR he knew that if he tried that strategy, he’d basically be doing a “factory reset” on ALL of Parker’s memories and he’d be up for round two on the psychic plane.

(And, let’s be honest, how well has Doc EVER done on Round Twos against Spider-Man?).

And, if you were Doc, would you risk doing ANY kind of “factory reset” on your brain?

Since these are the sum-and-total life memories of Peter/Ock from ASM #700, only those all-or-nothing files COULD have had the “Carlie shooting at me” memory.

But, if you’re Carlie Cooper, and someone says, “I’m Peter Parker. Doc Ock and I swapped, but now I’ve swapped back.”– logically, the memories Peter had AFTER the swap AS Ock would be ones that “person” wouldn’t have UNLESS there was some kind of a “swap-back.”

It works. If you need me to, I can draw you a chart. :-)

(There was one line of dialogue that was cut from that scene to make space. It went “C’mon, Carlie. You’re one of the smartest people I know. Think it through.” I liked that line, ’cause it also praised Carlie’s intelligence, something Ock wouldn’t do. But… it really crowded that panel up.)

Hope this helped.

***

“HEY! If your story was told well, you wouldn’t HAVE to explain it!”

Well…

Honestly, most people I’ve talked to who read the issue cold– without reading ANY message board out-there theories first– ALL got it without me having to explain a damn thing.

And, in the case of Marvel writers who needed to know how Peter was coming back– EACH time, when I’d get to the point where I’d say, “And then we reach full circle in Ock’s memories and he hits ASM #700… When Dying Peter has his life flash before his eyes, and he starts forcing those memories over to ‘Doc’…”

EACH Marvel writer would finish the sentence, saying some version of “…and Peter takes it all back, where Doc didn’t.”

And EACH time that writer would say something to the effect of, “How did I not see that coming? That’s good.” (Or “that totally works.”)

THAT’S the simple version. That’s the way it was always going to happen. Everything that lead you away from it was misdirection. And most people are cool with it. It really doesn’t take a “No Prize” to make it work. It just needs the suspension of disbelief that ALL fantasy stories require– and a willingness to go with the story (instead of fighting it… like Doc Ock would.) ;-)

Swear to God– I’ve asked an 11 year old what he thought happened in SSM #30. He walked me through it. And he nailed it.

Not for a second, no, not for a millisecond. all I see is that it ruined the relationship between Peter and Mary Jane

All you saw when you read this book was a stale relationship that should have ended a while back? Wasn't like they were married. Hell, I like Anna Maria more than MJ. NO offense to MJ,she was an amazing GF for Pete and former Wife (I'd say ex, but Mephisto just wrote that out of history), but life is full of change, and Superior Spider-man really accentuated the change in Peter's life. Ock ended the relationship in a mature manner (due to being older) and started a mature relationship with Anna maria (I ain't saying MJ was immature), but the whole back and forth between them, knowing they'll never permanently be married EXCEPT in multiverse tales, is just jaded now. Are you sure all you saw was a ruined relationship? How many times has that not happened before?

Yes, but they were still friends and he could still count on her to help keep his secret, but now she is on the fence and she basically wants nothing to do with his Spider-man side and even his relation with her as Peter is on the rocky side. Just that if he doesn't do something soon, he might lose her altogether, all because of how Ock treated her after he broke up with her, yes he ended the relationship in a mature way, but his behaviour towards her afterwards was dismal and what I saw was a dismantling, granted not a complete dismantling, of a relationship that was great. Personally I'm not a fan of Anna, all I see is another complication that Peter would have to sort out because of Ock.

Like I said in a another thread

A thought, a, what I would consider a plausible one.

As I'm sure some of you have noticed/know, Mary Jane has distanced herself from Spider-man due to Ock's actions and his behaviour towards her, I'm beginning to feel that this is by design that they had this in mind since the reboot. all to have Carlie take her place as the woman in Peter's life, due to what they both went through. it's more likely they will never tell Mary Jane what was really going on in order to not burden her anymore in Peter's life as Spider-man and respect her decision, even though he didn't have a hand in what she went through.

@animehunter: I think One More Day already took care of that.

I will miss Superior Spider-Man, but it's good to have Peter back for sure. I missed seeing Peter's interactions with the other Avengers and his humor, but I enjoyed watch Otto screw up Peter's personal relationships as well. Watching Peter try to put his life back together now is going to be a major challenge and I look forward to the ride. At least we're getting a Spider-Man 2099 comic now.
