  • Panel consists of Stephen Wacker (senior editor), Arune Singh (Director of Communications), Dan Slott, Ryan Stegman, Mark Waid, Joe Keatinge, Kevin Shinick, Declan Shalvey & Cullen Bunn
  • Crowd cheers but Singh says it isn't loud enough, joking "that doesn't say Superman.. that doesn't say Green Lantern... let's hear it for Spider-Man!"
  • Today is officially "Spider-Man Day" in New York.
  • Today only you can download an issue of ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN INFINITE COMICS for free.  Takes place in the animated universe.  Check it out here.
  • 'Dying Wish' will be the final story in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN.  Cover revealed of a not-so healthy looking Doc Oc saying "...Peter Parker."
  • Stan Lee will answer letters from a "select few fans" in the letter column of ASM #700.  Keep an eye on Marvel's news (via their main site or social media pages) over the next few weeks to find out how to apply.
  • AVENGING SPIDER-MAN 15.1 will serve as a bridge between ASM and what's to come next.  Those will be the ONLY two Marvel books coming out that week in Dec.
  • SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN discussion starts (Slott/Stegman).  The all new Spider-Man isn't Peter Parker and Slott calls it "very dark, very weird."  
  • Keatinge will write MORBIUS THE LIVING VAMPIRE.  The writer says he's been a big fan of the character for a long time because "he's not a hero, he's not a villain.  He's just a guy trying to do well and he's relentless in trying to do good but it always messes up."
  • This won't be a prison book.  Morbius will be leaving the Raft.
  • Waid thanks fans for all of their support of DAREDEVIL.
  • Says the theme of the title is "actions have consequences."
  • The new Spider-Man will appear in the title to help Matt battle the new Stilt-Man.  "I can't believe I just said that," Waid remarks.  
  • Issue #23 will reveal the mystery villain that has been playing Matt since issue #3.
  • Hank Pym to appear a lot more in DD.  Waid says he loves their friendship.
  • Bunn says 'Minimum Carnage' will have "more symbiotes per panel than ever before."
  • Venom is leaving the Big Apple and moving to Philly.  When asked why, they joked it's because of Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
  • But really, it's because Venom will "need a change" after the events of 'Minimum Carnage.'
  • Christopher Yost is "taking him [Kaine] down a pretty dangerous path next year" in SCARLET SPIDER.
  • David Aja to remain on HAWKEYE -- sadly, no update on Landlord bro.
  • DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS takes place in the not too distant future.  Does that mean we're getting a Bullseye resurrection story soon...? 
  • CAPTAIN MARVEL to have "a lot of Carol Danvers blasting stuff."
  • PUNISHER WAR ZONE to redefine Frank's role in the Marvel universe.
  • Described as a 5 issue cat and mouse chase -- you'll believe Frank can elude the Avengers.
  • No plans for a SPIDER-MEN follow-up at the moment.
  • A new version of The Big Wheel to appear in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN.
  • Waid hinted Black Cat might appear more in DAREDEVIL.
  • As for how Morbius leaves the raft -- we're told read ASM #699.  They added "they're very aware of all the villains currently in the Raft."
  • Super natural element will come back to VENOM -- but right now Bunn wants to focus on more street level stories.
  • Question: "Is Anti-Venom going to show up again?"  Answer: "Yes, Eddie Brock for sure."  Then what does the future hold for Toxin...?
  • Q: "Will Black Widow or Mockingbird be in HAWKEYE?" A: "Yes... to one of those."
  • We'll be seeing more of Mr. Negative, Overdrive & Vulture!
  • Q: "How come you don't make 2099 Spider-Man comics anymore?" A: "You want to see Spider-Man 2099?  We'll do it for you!"
  • Q:  "Has the upcoming Spider-Man appeared in a title yet?"  A:  "The Superior Spider-Man has serious Spider-Man pedigree."

It certainly WILL be sunnier in Philly now that Brock is making his way there! Great revelations people, and those covers are truly amazing. The Venom and Anti-Venom covers especially had me hooked!

#2 Edited by SmashBrawler (6032 posts) - - Show Bio

This didn't answer many of my questions... but whatever, I wasn't expecting many revelations anyway. The covers are pretty cool, though.

these covers look sick!!! awesome!!

I super pumped for the coming books of Hawkeye and Daredevil

#6 Posted by yteez (41 posts) - - Show Bio

The cover to Superior SM has him with the classic costume. I have been reading all the news regarding the new Spidey book and i'm losing hope with every new piece of info. I don't like it one bit that they hint at Pete not being the new Spider Man. Not cool Marvel, not cool.

So Daredevil is light and Spider-Man is dark? Weird....

Anti-venom ftw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This S Spider-man thing is starting to hurt my head now. I'm just gonna wait an see what happens.

A new Spider-Man 2099 would be awesome.

I REALLY dont like Peter not being Spider-Man anymore. But if there absolutely HAS to be a new Spider-Man I hope its Ben Reilly.

#12 Posted by KennyQuick (203 posts) - - Show Bio

I want to believe that Peter not being Spider-man is a prank. Or if he isnt Spider-man, it wont last long.

#13 Edited by TheMess1428 (2211 posts) - - Show Bio

My official guess is that Peter Parker will finally find out that he really is in fact Ben Reilly and it was the real Peter that died long ago. Then he gets a new attitude because he doesn't feel like he should be the same person anymore.

Look at the clues:

Dan Slott said that what he does to Spider-Man will piss off a lot of people. The whole thing behind Ben is Peter and Peter is Ben pisses off a lot of people.

He also said that the new guy has "serious Spider-Man pedigree." Who has more pedigree than Ben?

Marvel's street level books have been incredibly solid this year. Anxious to find out what will happen with Peter. Looking forward to more Daredevil and Hawkeye.

Give us peter Parker.

#18 Edited by Tmul501 (601 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm concerned about SSM. I dont' really want a spider-man book without Peter, unless he's going to go be spider-man for team books and this new guy is spider-man in new york?

Also, I'm worried about who it could be. Doesn't look like it'll be alpha, but I also hope it isn't someone I wouldn't care to read a spider-man story about (which would make it a very short list). I would be really cool with it if Shang Chi was spider-man. That could be very cool. That said, my money is on it being Harry Osborne and if I'm right, I don't think I'll be picking this up.

I'm curious to see how this plays out, but this is the first time in a long time I've seriously considered not picking up a spider-man series...

I think they're going to pull a hulk. Split Spiderman and Peter Parker.

Slott joked around that you guys might hate him after ASM #700.  Let's wait and see how the story unfolds before ranting or raving about the change.  I think he's at least earned that much ;)

I was there, and I asked a question.

I asked them if Black Cat would become a permanent member of the Defenders or maybe join the Avengers like she wanted to in the beginning of big time Spider-Man.

They said they didn't know yet and would probably have a big talk about the direction of her character soon.

#23 Posted by r3d_rob1n (543 posts) - - Show Bio

The only way I'm cool with Peter not being Spider-man anymore is if it works out similar to Hal's situation as GL with the DC New 52. Having him still a major force in the book, but at the same time taking a backseat to Sinestro.

I would be very interested in seeing Ben as Spidey, and an injured Peter staying at Horizon and helping build tech.

Ben Reily? Seriously if it's Ben all is forever forgiven.

#27 Posted by TimeLordScience (1900 posts) - - Show Bio

Does that picture of the newly redesigned Spider-man mean that the new guy (if there actually is one) is really a mutant? Like one of the new ones created by the Phoenix? Or just a coincidental team up?

Ben Reilly get your hands off Mary Jane!
Seriously, wouldnt that be a perfect way to top off ASM? Bring back Ben Reilly! He mattered!

How is this new spider-man "superior"? Obvisously, if he needs spikes on the tip of his fingers to stick to walls, he isn't superior. And he looks more like a villian than before. Even the black costume looks friendlier than this one. And honsetly, I don't want MARVEL to kill off Peter. If he loses his powers than thats fine, I guess. But if he dies, I will lose respect for MARVEL for even letting the writer do this. And I will change it from MARVEL NOW! to MARVEL WOW! REALLY?

Wait isn't scarlet spider ending in a few months or is he getting an ongoing?

I considered that but it doesn't fit. Harry isn't the biggest Spider-man fan why would ha take on the suit? He also doesn't have a lot of experience being a hero (which is what Slott said about this new Spider-man).

Scarlet Spider fighting werewolves. Thats all I needed to see!

VERY nice catch!  Let the speculation begin.
#35 Posted by thveej (203 posts) - - Show Bio

If it is Ben, then I am way more okay with it. I still think that SSM is Peter Parker, but mb he forgoes being Peter Parker and becomes Spiderman full time, mb even peter "dies" in issue 700.

But yah I really don't know about this business of not having Peter Parker as Spiderman, but I'll give Slot the benefit of doubt for now.

MJ has always been curvy, but DAMN where she get dat ass <3

#37 Edited by animehunter (4167 posts) - - Show Bio

I, like r3d_rob1n will have no issues with Peter Parker not being Spider-man, as long as he still plays a major part in the book, either as a mentor, tech builder or both. I believe he earned his rest/retirement from the costume.

My main issue is, according to Dan Slott, he will not be with Mary Jane. I mean they have been together for a long time, he told Silver Sable (Hope she comes back soon), after turning her down, he wanted to be worthy of MJ and near the end of the Spider-Island arc MJ whispered "I love you" to Peter which he did not hear and granted he was wearing his costume at the time. The fact that they are separating them in a more permanent basis, in terms of their relationship, really does not sit well with me.

Found this info regarding Mary Jane in a step-by-step accounting at the NYCC by CBR which apparently says "Slott compared the tone to Gwen Stacy's death and "Kraven's Last Hunt." Then, "You want Spider-Man and Mary Jane back together? They're back together! But he's not Peter Parker."

I'm hoping this is more of Marvels teasing or even one of their twists where it is Peter but with a new identity, which was setup by technology or magic, in order to escape his identity being revealed by Doc Oc.

He may be a mutant but his foot is like that because he has a claw coming out of his big toe which is used for gripping. Hence the reason its pronounced. His feet could well be fine beneath.

@Strider92: he is probably related to Nightcrwaler somehow.

@DarkKnightDetective: Lol that would be hilarious but i can't think of anyone with "serious Spider-man pedigree" who is related to NC :p

@Strider92: Maybe he'll pull a Bendis. but that's unlikely. it's probably someone we already know. Someone we would never expect, I know who the new Spider-man might be!

Uncle Ben

@DarkKnightDetective: Yeah I have a feeling its someone we already know but i really can't think of who fits the criteria. I doubt Slott is pulling a Bendis unless Dr Ock ends up giving Pete amnesia lol.
