Superior Spider-Man is Fired
After the onslaught of teaser images Marvel released over the past few months of just the creative team’s last names and a single word, they decided to mix things up. Now we can expect an onslaught of teaser images with art resembling a comic cover and a single word. And the first water drop from the overhanging waterfall is for Superior Spider-Man.
Now that Doc Ock is Spider-Man (but not really), I guess he doesn’t play well with others since the word on this teaser is “Fired.” In the image above you can see in background five members of the Avengers looking at Spider-Octopus with a look of shame for our Friendly Neighborhood Mad Scientist with a stupid haircut. I’m guessing this means he’s been kicked out of the Avengers. Great, Ock’s been in Peter’s body for, like, a week and he’s already been kicked off of the superhero team that has literally every other superhero in the world on its roster. Good job, Otto.
Now, this could also mean that Otto Parker has been fired from Horizon Labs. If you’ve read Superior Spider-Man issue 1 (Micro review: Eh) then you know that Peter Octavius is being a colossal dick to absolutely everyone, even his boss. So it’s entirely possible that he’ll get his ass fired from Horizon, too.
“Fired” is to be continued in April, 2013.
