Marvel has officially revealed the newly redesigned Amazing Spider-Man, debuting in Oct. The new series will see Peter Parker finally stepping up as founder of Parker Industries, and becoming a globetrotting entrepreneur, MTV reports.
“Peter Parker has stepped up,” writer Dan Slott says. “He’s grown. He’s become the Peter Parker we’ve always hoped he was going to be. This company, with Peter’s inventions and Peter’s gumption has gone to new heights.”
Peter will be sporting a new costume designed by cover artist Alex Ross, which will feature some hidden technological enhancements.
“The things this suit will be able to do and the innovations that Peter Parker has put into it will be astounding,” Slott said, “and when you want to take something to the next level, you go, and make it look real, you go, ’hey Alex Ross, take your best shot.’ ”
On top of all that, Peter’s also got a new ride in the Spider-Mobile, redesigned by series artist Giuseppe Camuncoli, and editor Nick Lowe says, “you see it in the very first issue driving around the streets of Shanghai.”
