Someone pinch me because I think I'm dreaming. Cardiac, an obscure character who happens to be my favorite anti-hero (seriously, it's an unhealthy obsession), is coming back to the 616 universe! Marvel released a sneak peek and the cover of SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #8, and it goes without saying that I'm insanely stoked. In the event you don't care or know about Cardiac (we're so not friends until you change that), you'll be happy to know the issue will focus on Superior Otto-Man's conflict with The Avengers.
Things aren't looking up for the fake wall-crawler. First Cardiac stretches out his costume, then he gets a super powered beatdown from Marvel's A-list team.
Here's the issue description straight from Marvel:
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Superior Spider-Man #8 from the chart-topping creative team behindAmazing Spider-Man #700, writer Dan Slott and artist Humberto Ramos. This might just be the beginning of the end for Doc Ock—or is it? With Peter Parker fighting full-force to regain control over his own body, will he be able to save Cardiac and redeem himself in the eyes of the Avengers?
