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."
At the Superior Spider-Man panel at the NYCC Marvel Comics announced a new Captain Marvel comic book series debuting in March that will be written by Kelly Sue DeConnick and drawn by David Lopez.
DeConnick is taking Carol Danvers, who made the transition from Ms. Marvel to Captain Marvel last year, cosmic in the new Captain Marvel series as Marvel’s other “Cap” shows that she has the "right stuff" by demonstrating her skills as an American pilot in outer space. The first arc in the new ongoing Captain Marvel series is called "Higher, Faster, Further, More," as the series takes on an outer space dimension.
With Captain Marvel going cosmic it didn’t take long for a fan to query whether Carol Danvers might just bump into the Guardians of the Galaxy somewhere out there, and DeConnick’s "wouldn’t that be awesome" reply doesn’t exactly inspire skepticism
