Wow lots of news. Great to finally have a release date, we waited a lot but it's not that far away at least. Really hoping this game will be as good as it looks!

So, this was interesting. Next issue will probably be Norman hunting Peter's loved ones and facing off against his superpowered friends (In which they'll lose if the cover is any indication). Then 800 will be the final showdown between 'em.

No idea what the mean twist is supposed to be either. Probably one or two of the references Zarius and Animehunter mentioned. I digged the Spider-Girl nod, btw. lol
Yeah the revelation was underwhelming... But, about that, I find very interesting that, despite the voice thing, we did not see Norman's face this issue.... 799 solicit says the RG mystery will be revealed... And of course there's that recent cover which covers RG's face. :p But just playing devil's advocate here, tbh at this point I'd rather that it is indeed just Norman, we only have two issues left anyway no time for secret identity drama, and I thought the issue was fun tbh. Immonen is at his very best here. I just wanted more Green Goblin, it's been so long since Norman was simply his most definitive self, and he was so obsessed with it previously... But now it's "Lol Carnage" <_< But okay. So far I'm really enjoying GDS tbh. I hope Slott doesn't pull a... Slott and drops the ball.

Nothing I didn't expect. But maybe there are other Red Goblins or something like that?

Possibly. I am not surprised but I definitely think there will be some sort of catch.

@animehunter: @zariusii@amazingfantasy@itsaworld

Don't feel it. To me its her just being genuinely sorry for the way she currently feels because she wants to but doesn't because of the danger of Spider Man's life. Not because she doesn't measure up or thinks little of herself. And her not being able to handle that life anymore (yeah yeah Mephisto influence) does not make her inferior in any way for not being able to.

Although, that "Sorry tiger" can also play into the possibility of @zariusii's theory of MJ inadvertently being the RG LOLZ

I believe both are valid interpretations... I think we can't know for sure until we see a scene showing MJ's thoughts or something. But yeah I also interpreted it the way you did.

@animehunter I think the mean-spirited twist i next week's issue is that MJ will be revealed as the Red Goblin, or at least an agent of Mephisto, thus the main reason why she asked Peter to go out the window of her apartment and said "sorry tiger" under her breath...because she knew that Norman was there.

My theory is that Carnage symbiote is a misdirect, as are Nick's comments he'll be using MJ in his run. 800 is gonna be Peter vs Mary Jane, Hope to be wrong, but it's something I feel Slott will do.

This is crazy but I dig it. The fact that this occurred to you I mean, not what would actually happen in said scenario lol and yep, agreed that Peter vs Mary Jane does seem like something Slott would do... <.< Normally I'd argue that Red Goblin has a male appearance, but this isn't even a factor these days because of Marvel's making their women literally look like men sometimes... Hello there current She-Hulk <_<

My best bet for the mean-spirited thing is that RG isn't actually Osborn. At this point not sure who exactly it would be, just not Norman. We know 798 will reveal RG so it fits with the tweet... So, It'd be mean-spirited because everything led you to believe that it would be Norman, including Slott outright saying it in an interview... (And as we know Slott loves to have those "Gotcha!" moments. ) And a lot of people were hoping for this union, the increased sales on ASM lately and all. Seriously I can already see him saying something like " I lied! For the story! Haha. But there was a Red Goblin, it was just not who you expected! Comics!". Edit: And this is all of course if we believe Slott. Let's not forget he has a history of overselling things. Whenever he says something like this I immediately think of when he said Spider-Verse Uncle Ben would break the internet. lol

----------------

Heh, Mizerous comment made me think how Slott worked on multiple books before his ASM gig... And yet he's mostly known for ASM (Which is understandable). Will be interesting to see if IM and F4 will change that view of some readers. The fact that we're on social media era helps too, some people do already associate Surfer to him. I even saw a fanart of Peter/Surfer/Stark with Slott recently. But other than/even with hardcore comic fans, I hardly anyone associating the other books he worked on with him. As I said will be interesting to see. And I also wonder if Slott will be able to redeem himself as a writer in the eyes of some, since again they just associate him with Spider-Man. And in the social media era, new books get more attention and are read and talked about more, especially by the current generation... So if they don't associate She-Hulk or Thing with him, maybe they will Iron Man and F4. So they'll go from "This guy can't write" to "This guy can't write Spider-Man" lol If Slott's run is good, I mean. Anyways I'm excited and curious. Hope ASM gets a proper sendoff and maybe even ends up being one of those great arcs (Like Spidey/Torch, LTC, RYV...) from Slott, and that IM and F4 are handled (really) well. I mean it, I want editors or whoever cutting off any toxic/bad/whatever ideas! Just good stories, nothing else, like 2-in-1! They both need a triumphal return, actually, include good old spidey there as well LOL These are literally my favorite franchises from Marvel sooo here's hoping that this is truly a "fresh start".

@blackspidey2099: I love it as well, he nails it and I love how he developed them so much in just a few pages back in Spidey/Torch. I've read Slott's Thing, She-Hulk, Mighty Avengers, and of course Spider-Man/Human Torch + anything FF related in his ASM. I never read it but from what I hear his SS is top tier as well. These books are all similar to F4 (and he wrote the team in 'em!) and were very fun reads. I'll admit I have my doubts about him on Iron Man, but F4? I'm sold. He is a solid pick, in fact maybe the most solid from Marvel right now. And with Zdarsky beautifully handling 2-in-1... Aaah, It's good to see my 2nd favorite Marvel franchise back and being treated well. For all the sh** I give Marvel these days, this seems like a pretty good move. lol

-----

It also seems like Slott is upping his game now. He always did say he wanted to focus on Spider-Man... Now he's got pretty much the two biggest deals from Marvel nowadays (Or rather 2 of the 3, if you count BP recent rise). And he was offered Supes and Bats a few years ago. Clearly he didn't become even more of a big name because he didn't want to, but maybe now he does? And Zdarsky seems to be going through a similar path. A "rookie" and yet he very quickly got Spider-Man and F4 books, in both cases the first one in years and with some importance to it too (2-in-1 began the F4 return and Spectacular was highly advertised and chosen for MCU synergy). If this keeps up, they'll both become like Bendis if not above lol And I am totally fine with it. Wouldn't be surprised if either of them writes an event soon. So Slott was the head of Spidey and is now head of IM and F4... All my favorite Marvel franchises. Lol? Also funny how Zdarsky gets the 'sister' book for the 2nd time now LOL Now all that's missing is IM getting one from him as well xD ... Damn that would actually be great.

Gwen looks well-drawn there, actually everyone does, I dig it. Carol and Squirrel Girl looking feminine again, what sorcery is this :p LOL

Wonder why they haven't/don't simply officially name her Spider-Woman already, cartoon or wherever else really, since (technically) she's way more connected to Peter Parker and more popular than any of the other Spider-Women, plus they clearly like to promote her more than 'em too. Outside of comics they don't even have the "There's already a Spider-Woman" reason (And even with that... *Looks at Cap/Falcap pre-SE, Peter/Miles/Miguel and Ben/Kaine*) Don't really care what they call her but just thinking out loud. lol

@bjparks: I saw that, looks good. I think I like this spider symbol better. Although I don't care much for costumes since I don't think anything will top the ASM2 one, but all versions from the MCU so far are acceptable. I just really want those black parts gone however <.< lol simple change but I personally would like the look considerably more...
