Alright, sport fans, we’ve got ourselves another Marvel NOW! teaser with a very intriguing combination of creatives and adjective. While Gillen & McKelvie were branded “Amateurs” in yesterday’s teaser, the team of Dan Slott, Ryan Stegman, [Humberto?] Ramos and Giuseppe Camuncoli are “Superior.”
Here’s the teaser from USA Today.
Worth noting, the above image is titled “superiorspiderman_marvelnow_teaser2-4_3_r560.jpg.” That’s either the publisher’s branding, or a reflection of USA Today’s speculation that this is a bold new direction for Spidey. Given the creative team involved, it’s a pretty safe bet. Slott is the current showrunner for our favorite wall-crawler, and the artists all share credits on various Spider-titles. Plus, we’ve yet to see hide nor hair of Peter Parker in previous Marvel NOW! announcements.
Then again, there’s the outside chance that this involves She-Hulk, that tall, cool drink of Ecto-Cooler from Slott’s past. Stegman also has a history with Ms. Walters. It’s possible.
Smart money though? Spidey. But what do you make of the notion of a “Superior Spider-Man”?
