Amazing Spider-Man #2 takes Spidey to San Fran to protect… Peter Parker?

If you haven’t been keeping up on what’s been in the cards for Spidey in the post Secret Wars world, it’s pretty different.

This October, Parker Industries is going global! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #2 – the next explosive issue from Dan Slott & Giuseppe Camuncoli! It takes a lot to be the head of a worldwide corporation: the globetrotting, the meetings, the foiling of terrorist plots. Things are getting personal, as The Zodiac have their sights set on Parker Industries and its illustrious C.E.O.! Peter Parker and his “bodyguard” – the Amazing Spider-Man – have tracked them to their hideout in San Francisco! Now, Spidey and Prowler are ready to take them head-on in their underwater fortress! Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man’s neighborhood just got a lot bigger. Be there when the webhead swings through San Francisco Bay this October in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #2!

So this kind of makes sense. I mean, if you were handed a multibillion dollar company that everyone thought you built, wouldn’t you try and run it as best you could and make it into something that you could be proud of? That’s kind of what’s happening here as Pete’s Parker Industries (actually created by Otto Octavius when he was in Peter’s head) goes global.

Of course, that brings up the question of what happens to Spider-Man if Peter is globe-trotting. In comes the old Iron Man plot device that casts Spidey as Peter’s ‘protector’, and the saga of Peter Parker rolls on. How long it will last is anyone’s guess, though it seems like Marvel and writer Dan Slott has a definite plan for making Pete specifically (not Spider-Man) into a bigger character in Marvel’s world, someone who has a world-wide influence. That should be very interesting indeed.

Also, kind of awesome to see Prowler again, no?

Amazing Spider-Man #2 hits the shelves from Slott and artist Giuseppe Camuncoli on October 21st.
