Spider-Man Will Have Help From Friends Keeping NYC Safe


When the new Amazing Spider-Man #1 comes our way in October, things will be a little different for Peter Parker under the creative team of Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli. No, scratch that: a lot different.

Gone are the days when Peter had to worry about making ends meet. Eight months after Secret Wars, Parker Industries has gone from a tech start-up to a rapidly expanding powerhouse. It’s all thanks to Peter’s own inventions, which makes sense considering the guy invented his own web-shooters as a teenager.

As the head of a company with enough clout to move into the Baxter Building, Peter will also be spending more time on globetrotting adventures. Since Spider-Man has always been synonymous with New York City, that will be a much different status quo. It also raises the question of who will keep the Big Apple safe while he’s away.

Marvel answered that question today in a look at the changes that await in Amazing Spider-Man #1. On the question of who will watch over NYC in Spidey’s absence, it had this to say:

"Never fear—the city has never lacked heroes, especially those of the arachnid variety. When Spider-Man’s on a business trip, Miles Morales, Spider-Woman, and Spider-Man 2099 will step up to save the day."

Can’t fault that logic, especially with Miles Morales being positioned as the Spider-Man of record around New York. Could we see Peter do a semi-formal organizing of the efforts of Miles, Jess and Miguel? That would be cool to see.
