Superior Spider-Man Returns To Marvel Comics

Superior Spider-Man Returns To Marvel Comics

Otto Octavius is returning to Marvel Comics in a new ongoing as none other than fan-favorite Superior Spider-Man from writer Christos Gage and artist by Mike Hawthorne.

The new series promises to be filled with plenty of emotion, conflict, and adventure as Doc Ock has a Spider-journey of his own, independent of Peter Parker. 

Marvel teases “Otto will get another chance to be the best Super Hero he can be!”

“The Superior Spider-Man is back! But this time he’s not trying to be a superior Peter Parker — he’s trying to be the best possible Otto Octavius,” Christos Gage said. “[This] includes protecting San Francisco, teaching at Horizon University in his cover identity as Elliot Tolliver, and, of course, doing everything much better than anyone else can — which is why he’s still the Superior Spider-Man! I had the great pleasure of collaborating with Dan Slott on his incredible Superior Spider-Man run, and I can’t wait for people to see this new chapter in Otto’s journey toward… redemption? Corruption? Triumph? Tragedy? That remains to be seen. What I can tell you is that the appropriately superior artistic team of Mike Hawthorne, Wade Von Grawbadger, and Jordie Bellaire — titans of their field, all — are absolutely killing it on the art.”

Mike Hawthorne added: “I’m more than thrilled to renew my exclusive with the folks at Marvel. I want to emphasize ‘folks’ here, as I think we often talk about Marvel as this big entity that just makes things happen. Marvel, to me, is the people that work day in and day out to try to make the best comics they can. They’re the ones that keep me coming back. I’m ecstatic to dedicate the next few years of my creative energies to adding to the Marvel Universe!”

Superior Spider-Man #1 will go on sale this December!
