Marvel’s big, giant Inhumanity event spins its web into Superior Spider-Man’s life (and city) with Inhumanity: Superior Spider-Man #1.
Marvel is pleased to present your very first look at INHUMANITY: SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN from superior spidey-scribe Christos Gage and red hot artist Stephanie Hans! The Inhuman city of Attilan has detonated and crashed from the skies, leaving dangerous wreckage and equally dangerous Inhuman technology all over Manhattan. It’s up to the Superior Spider-Man to stop the chaos. But he’s not alone. And he’s about to learn that super powers aren’t all it takes to be superior – and heroes can come from anywhere.
This Inhumanity thing is getting to be almost as big as the event that it originated from, which of course was the Earth-threatening, Thanos romp- Infinity. It’s kind of a cool idea too to have one big universe-changing crossover lead right into the next too.
As a longtime comic reader, I have seen it done before, but not all that often and I just really dig the flow of it. Marvel probably could have had these aftereffects play out in the monthlies if they wanted to, to me though, having stand-alone issues gives the events a weight that simply crossing over into an ongoing book probably couldn’t.
This looks like a pretty cool one too. It looks like one of those Spidey stories that emphasizes the ‘normal’ humans that protect and serve NYC, which is something we’ve seen in the past in Spider-Man books- though this time it’ll be Otto Octavius in the red and
blue black and not Peter Parker. That should at the very least provide for some interesting moments.
Written by Christos Gage and with art by Stephanie Hans, Inhumanity: Superior Spider-Man #1 hits stands from Marvel Comics on January 15th.
