There he is in all his glory, the new Ultimate Spiderman. Marvel comics in another of a long string of “screw you fan boy” moves has released to the press all the details of the changes in Ultimate Spiderman instead of letting fans discover them on their own.
Don’t worry though, I am sure your local store will limit the amount of copies anyone can buy because of the usual influx of people who only saw the press statements and see big dollar signs in their single issue comic book collecting. What a bunch of morons. I can’t even be happpy that new people are buying comics, history has shown that these people do nothing to add to the comic book community besides showing up in the comic book store a year or so later trying to sell that same comic back to the store. Ok, i’m climbing back down off my Internet high horse.
Below is the opening of the Marvel Press release:
Pop culture history will be made tomorrow as ULTIMATE COMICS FALLOUT #4 hits shelves and introduces readers to the all-new Ultimate Comics Spider-Man! That’s right, for the first time ever, someone other than Peter Parker will be Spider-Man! But, after the death of Peter Parker, who will rise up to defend the Ultimate Universe? Meet Miles Morales, a seemingly normal teenager from New York who will soon discover that with great power comes great responsibility…and even greater danger! But just what are the secrets behind Miles’ shocking abilities? What’s his connection to the original Spider-Man? And just why does he wear that costume? Courtesy of superstars Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli, ULTIMATE COMICS FALLOUT #4 begins the story that’ll have everyone talking for years to come!
“When the opportunity arose to create a new Spider-Man, we knew it had to be a character that represents the diversity—in background and experience—of the twenty-first century,” said Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor in Chief. “Miles is a character who not only follows in the tradition of relatable characters like Peter Parker, but also shows why he’s a new, unique kind of Spider-Man—and worthy of that name.”
