Marvel revealed today that Otto Octavius will return in an ongoing series which will see him attempt to don the mantle of spider hero once again in Superior Spider-Man. According to the report on marvel.com this series will be an action and conflict-filled adventure which will run separately to that of original Spider-Man Peter Parker as Octavius tries to be the best hero he can be which as you may recall did not turn out too well the last time…
The series will be penciled by Mike Hawthorne and written by Christos Gage who had this to say:
“The Superior Spider-Man is back! But this time he’s not trying to be a superior Peter Parker — he’s trying to be the best possible Otto Octavius. [This] includes protecting San Francisco, teaching at Horizon University in his cover identity as Elliot Tolliver, and, of course, doing everything much better than anyone else can — which is why he’s still the Superior Spider-Man! I had the great pleasure of collaborating with Dan Slott on his incredible Superior Spider-Man run, and I can’t wait for people to see this new chapter in Otto’s journey toward… redemption? Corruption? Triumph? Tragedy? That remains to be seen. What I can tell you is that the appropriately superior artistic team of Mike Hawthorne, Wade Von Grawbadger, and Jordie Bellaire — titans of their field, all — are absolutely killing it on the art.”
When asked in the interview who else may be appearing in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN? Gage had this to say:
“Already I’ve had the pleasure of seeing [the artistic team] depict Stilt-Man, the Night Shift, and some rather more heavy-hitting villains who shall remain nameless. Tremble, world, for Otto Octavius is back, better than ever… you’re welcome. Oh, and… THE DIE IS CAST!!”
