Warning: Spoilers... Seriously. If you remember, back in June, Marvel announced that they will kill off Ultimate Spider-Man, but have someone else take his place. The death and replacement was announced during the Death of Spider-Man story arc, before Spidey was officially killed off. Even though everyone knew it was coming, it was still a bummer to see Marvel spoil it before the fans got to read it for themselves.
Today, once again, Marvel sent out a press release spoiling a big moment in their books just one day before the issue is released and it involves the identity of the new Ultimate Spider-Man.== TEASER ==
Ultimate Comics Fallout #4, which will be in stores tomorrow, was where the name and identity of the new Ultimate Spider-Man was going to be announced, until Marvel's press release this morning.
That’s right, for the first time ever, someone other than Peter Parker will be Spider-Man! But, after the death of Peter Parker, who will rise up to defend the Ultimate Universe? Meet Miles Morales, a seemingly normal teenager from New York who will soon discover that with great power comes great responsibility…and even greater danger! But just what are the secrets behind Miles’ shocking abilities? What’s his connection to the original Spider-Man? And just why does he wear that costume? Courtesy of superstars Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli, Ultimate Comics Fallout #4 begins the story that’ll have everyone talking for years to come!
When the opportunity arose to create a new Spider-Man, we knew it had to be a character that represents the diversity—in background and experience—of the twenty-first century...Miles is a character who not only follows in the tradition of relatable characters like Peter Parker, but also shows why he’s a new, unique kind of Spider-Man—and worthy of that name.
Ultimate Comics Fallout #4, written by Brian Michael Bendis, Jonathan Hickman, and Nick Spencer and drawn by Sara Pichelli, Salvador Larroca, and Clayton Crain, will hit the newsstands tomorrow, 08/03/11. To see the continuing adventures of Miles Morales, check out Ultimate Comics Spider-Man coming out on 9/14/11 written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Sara Pichelli.
Although it's cool to see a new Spider-Man, Marvel seems to be spoiling their own books a bit too much recently.What do you guys think of the new Spider-Man? Is Marvel spoiling their own books too much?
