While the fate of Peter Parker is yet to be revealed, Marvel Comics has answered at least one question on the mind of fans regarding the outcome of events in the “Death of Spider-Man” storyline taking place in “Ultimate Comics Spider-Man” and “Ultimate Avengers vs New Ultimates.” Today, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso revealed to the New York Post that, very soon, a new person will assume the identity of everyone’s favorite wall-crawler. “That’s not Peter Parker,” Alonso told The Post. “There’s going to be someone new wearing the costume.”
Marvel has announced that after the shocking events of Death of Spider-Man, the sold out storyline currently running through Ultimate Comics Spider-Man and Ultimate Comics Avengers Vs Ultimates, there will be a new Spider-Man and a new character under the mask. Something’s happened to Peter Parker and here comes an all-new Spider-Man…in an all-new costume!
“We called this story Death of Spider-Man for a reason,” said Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor In Chief. “This is a huge story that’ll have fans around the world talking for a long time as we set the stage for the debut of our new Spider-Man.”
The Ultimate Universe is irrevocably changed with the conclusion to Death of Spider-Man in June’s polybagged Ultimate Spider-Man #160, but right now you can get in on the red-hot story that leads to the birth of an all-new Spider-Man.
