writer Dan Slott, who has been working on the character for long enough now to be considered something of an authority, is promising developments coming up in October's Superior Spider-Man #20 that will change the title for the foreseeable future.
The issue, pictured at right, is solicited as follows:
From the fallout of NECESSARY EVIL, comes new beginnings and new twists that will be felt in the pages of Spider-Man for years to come! SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #20 is where it all starts! Do NOT miss this one! It’s the first ever adventure for the Superior Spider-Man and the Black Cat. Felicia Hardy always cared for the Spider more than the man. But what happens when that man is Otto Octavius? Plus: A day Otto has been waiting for is finally here. Is the world ready for “Dr. Peter Parker”… and what he plans to do next?
"There are SO many WTH moments in Superior Spider-Man #20! & SO many things in this issue that will be felt in the pages of Spider-Man books for YEARS to come!" Slott teased on Twitter today. "In 2014, when Spider-Man fans ask 'When did that start?' or 'When did that first show up?' They'll be talking about Superior Spider-Man #20."
