Slott and Camuncoli Bring Back Scorpio in ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ #9 [Preview]
Peter Parker, the elder of Marvel's two equally important Spider-Men, teams up with Nick Fury to take on Scorpio in Amazing Spider-Man #9 by Dan Slott and Guiseppe Camuncoli, the first chapter of "Scorpio Rising."
Scorpio is of course an old enemy of the original Nick Fury, and leader of the Zodiac criminal organization (not to be confused with Zodiac Starforce). The original Scorpio was Nick Fury Sr's brother, and later the name was used by Fury's son. So whichever Scorpio this is must be related to Nick Fury Jr somehow, mostly like as an uncle or half-brother. Either way there's sure to be some drama when Nick and Peter catch up to him.
Amazing Spider-Man #9 features a cover by Alex Ross and goes on sale March 9th.
