Comic News: Marvel Gets Even More Superior in July

   With the waves of fans who are enjoying Superior Spiderman after the venomous hate that was the initial reaction to the events of Amazing Spider-man # 700, get ready for more as Marvel will be release 3 new books that revolve around the actions of Superior Spiderman.

 First up, we get the Superior Foes of Spider-man, which will be written by Nick Spencer with art by Steve Lieber. Superior Foes of Spider-man will focus on the latest incarnation of the Sinister Six, which is being lead by Boomerang (ft a new Beetle, Shocker, Overdrive & Speed Demon) and were introduced in Superior Spider-man # 1.

  Nick Spencer commented about the book on

This is a book about the working class guys; these are not the Kingpins or Green Goblins or Doc Ocks of the world. These are the small-time crooks looking for a quick score so they can pay their alimony and get the loan shark off their back. A lot of the book is from Boomerang's perspective, and he's very much aware of that—and he sees this new Sinister Six he's formed as one last big shot at real money and real power. He's got a lot riding on this. . . . they certainly feel like they're moving up in the world, since the name Sinister Six carries with it a certain weight. But really, that's a bit of marketing hype; I mean, what stops any group of six—or in this case, five—super-crooks from taking up a title like that? They'll run into reality pretty quick. For hired guns like these, the really dangerous part of the equation is on the criminal side: getting on the wrong side of a boss, or being double-crossed by your partner. Losing a fight with Spider-Man is getting off light by comparison there.

 The book will be an ongoing and it is slated to start  this July.

Next Up, we get Superior Carnage, which will be written by Kevin Shinick with art by Stephen Segovia has Cletus Cassidy, who is imprisoned and catatonic, being used and harnessed for evil along side his symbiote, much like what the government did to Venom, yet for evil. And the mastermind of this murderous idea is none other than the Wizard. The 5 issue miniseries starts this July.

And then things get even more epic with Superior Spider-man Team Up # 1. Chris Yost is joined by artist Marco Checchetto as they transform Avenging Spider-man into Superior Spider-man Team Up. After the "mind blowing, status quo" as Yost promises to expand Superior Spider-man operations.

Yost to said to CBR: . . .

with "Superior Spider-Man Team Up," that just gets bigger. I think in issue #1, he teams up with pretty much the entire Marvel Universe.
So you're going to continue to see how Spidey ---who up until now has been an incredibly arrogant a-hole --continues to deal with the rest off the Marvel after what has happened to his reputation in the first few issues of Superior.
Spidey-Ock's been acting, in his own special way, heroically. To me, the joy of writing Avenging has been seeing how the other people react to him and also how Doc views these people. He's always looking down his nose at the others -- even guys like Thor and Hulk -- because in the end he really, truly believes in his heart that he is better than all of them.

With the relaunch, as you'll be seeing in the months to come starting in Superior #9, Spidey’s gone through some changes, and will expand his operations. He's going to be the best Spider-Man that's ever been, and he's going to take it to the next level. "Superior Spider-Man Team Up" reflects that. You're going to get bigger stories. Like I said, in the first issue he teams up with the Marvel Universe, and you'll see him interacting in a much bigger way with everybody.

Again,  Superior Spider-man Team Up  #1 will start this July.

And finally, Dan Slott promises an even bigger status quo change for Superior Spider-man in both issues # 9 & Issue # 14 where in 14, he gets a new alias and new costume.

It all happens this July.
