“With great power, there must also come great responsibility.” These words have echoed through time and helped shape a teenage boy into the greatest super hero the world has ever known! You thought you knew the whole story? You were wrong!
There’s more to the story of how Peter Parker became the Amazing Spider-Man. This May, explore those early adventures in Amazing Spider-Man: Learning to Crawl, a new 5-issue limited series from New York Times Bestselling writer Dan Slott (Superior Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man), Eisner Award winning artist Ramón Pérez (Tale of Sand, Wolverine and the X-Men) with covers by legendary painter Alex Ross!
“We all love a good ‘Year One’ story,” says Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “But this is MUCH more! Not only does this address Spider-Man’s past, but it sets up a new villain that will be a huge part of Dan Slott’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN plans moving forward.”
Picking up shortly after the murder of his mentor and beloved father figure Uncle Ben, Learning to Crawl will both tell the story of Peter Parker’s first 60 days as the Amazing Spider-Man – in an all-new story set parallel to the events of 1962’s Amazing Fantasy #15 and 1963’s Amazing Spider-Man #1 – #3 and introduce a stunning new villain in the classic Marvel style!
"If you read the early issues [of Amazing Spider-Man], he doesn’t start patrolling for crime until issue #3 or #4," says writer Dan Slott in an interview with Marvel.com. "What’s he doing? Every adventure, he either stumbles across it, or he’s looking for money. ‘Oh! If only I could get pictures of the Vulture!’ He doesn’t wake up one morning and go, ‘I need to catch the Vulture.’ He sees a thing in the Daily Bugle requesting some photos for good money. ‘That’ll pay the rent! Maybe Aunt May won’t have to hock her jewelry.’"
"That path that he’s on will eventually lead him to being a hero," continued Slott. "That’s the story. It’s his path to becoming the Spider-Man that we know. There’s a story that you haven’t heard."
Peter Parker, fully back in the spider’s seat of his own mind, is returning to the pages of a relaunched Amazing Spider-Man #1 in April, by the creative team of Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos. The NY Daily News just officially confirmed the news
“To do that for a solid year of my life, that’s the hardest thing I’ve had to do — to look small children in the eye at a convention and lie to them," Slott told The Daily News. "Inside, part of me was dying." Slott did, however, on a set visit for Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, tell Andrew Garfield that Peter would be back in time for the film.
When Slott first discussed the storyline that would kill off Peter and see Otto Octavius, who debuted in 1963’s Amazing Spider-Man #3 as Doc Ock, one of Peter’s oldest, most nefarious villains take his place as Spidey with the executives at Marvel, the writer said he was "as cynical" as any fan would be.
Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso says that "people will appreciate him a little more after this." He added that he thought "people have been taking [Peter] for granted."
As for the return itself, the Daily News was light on details, but Dan Slott has taken to social media to tease fans that at least some hints will come as early as this coming Wednesday, January 15, 2014. In Superior Spider-Man currently, Otto/Spidey has merged with the Venom symbiote – while Dr. Strange’s magic erased Parker from the alien suit’s memory, it does recognize that something is wrong with its host. The Avengers are on the scene, and Peter’s ex-girlfriend Carlie Cooper, who has figured out the mind-swap, is currently being held captive by the Green Goblin.
"This Sunday, January 12th there will be some BIG Superior Spider-Man SPOILERS on news & comic news sites," Slott posted on his Facebook page.
"If you can, you should probably try to avoid them till after you’ve read your new comics on Weds.
"You’ve been warned."
