This is a teaser to part of the build up to ASM 700. Entitled "Who Is Alpha?".

Apparently it is going to have something to do with Spider-mans origin and introduce a new character. Does this mean they're going back to the whole "Other" deal?

Not really sure what to make of it. Could be either interesting or disastrous depending on where they go with it.

@ReVamp: I wouldn't actually be against him to be honest. He was always one of my favorite Spider-man characters. Not really sure why people disliked him.

People don't? He's quite popular. Well... As popular as you can be after the clone sage.

I'd just be bummed if it turned out that since the 90's we'd actually been following Pete's clone while he was locked away in some stasis pod.

That would be the lamest thing ever. That would be potentially worse than Sin's Past. That would be worse than Sin's Past.

I see. You know they were originally planning to:

Make Parker the clone, with Reilly being the original.

@ReVamp: Yeah I remember that. The funny thing was because I lived in Europe and we are behind America I practically grew up with him as Spider-man so I was actually quite sad when they killed him.

They better not. Really Slott has me wondering if I'm going to end up hating the book so bad that I'll stop enjoying it.

I forget where I heard it but it was said Slott found something in Spider-Man's first appearance or origin that everyone missed. He will be bringing that up.

about peter parker being replaced, but If you think about it Alpha can also be the first Peter Parker and the one that we have been reading about is just a clone.

o_o

I said nothing about Parker being replaced.

If it really is something from Spider-Mans origin then and connected to 700 what if it's a character created from that experiment that gave him his powers?

It hasn't been confirmed he created the entire character as to quote:

Not be redundant but, who is Alpha? Is it an entirely new character or a description of a guise someone adopts?

It could be a character we already know under a new name.

I really like this theory. Not sure how it would work with the whole "Other" thing though.
