The Superior Spider-man by RDOWN The Superior Spider-man by RDOWN
So the new Spider-man...I did this because not only have I not done a spidey image for yonks but heard all about the new and improved (apparently) spider-man that "appeared" in Amazing spiderman #700


I haven't read a Spider-man comic in years but I went and bought one now (which is what they did this stunt for obviously) and what caught my attention was the reaction to it from the fan base.
Putting a soon to be dead doc ocks mind into spidey's body and having spidey actually die in Ocks body was a shocker for a lot I'm sure BUT DEATH THREATS TO THE WRITER!? Come on!
From the get go you can see ways to write peter parker back in. they even tell everyone that peters memories are still in his body and in typical comic book ....logic, there are endless ways to bring him back.

The irony is while everyone is having a conniption fit over Peters "death" the only person who could be actually dead is at the end of this is Doc Ock. Even that doesn't have to be true.
You have to take your hat off to Marvel on this one, they wanted controversial publicity on this and they gotz it.Good job

I never picked up a Superman comic until he "died" and I remember all the chaos after that ordeal. I think your spot on.

Really like the style of this, very edged and sharp. All very striking really capturing the familiar spider-man in a bold way.
I for one actually rather like the new story arc, a really interesting and controversial move for once and one where ever it may lead can only shed new light on an otherwise very well known character.

Yeah I thought the same. A darker spider-man hasn't been done since he wore the black/venom costume (i assume) so it should be interesting.
