‘Superior Spider-Man’ Returns In August, But How?

SuperiorSpiderMan032main

Next month, Otto Octavius will once again don the red-and-black tights and highly reflective lenses of his Spider-Man costume in Superior Spider-Man #32 by Dan Slott, Christos Gage, Giuseppe Camunicoli and Adam Kubert.

There's just one major problem with that: Octavius was inhabiting Peter Parker's body when he was Spider-Man, and Peter has that back now. He is the sole owner of his own body. So how in the world could the Doc Ock Spider-Man's title come back? The easy answer, of course, is simply "comics," but let's explore some of the possible explanations, shall we?

Peter Parker To Return In ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ #1 From Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos

Untitled-1

It was never a matter of if, but when Peter Parker would come back. A year ago this week, Marvel launched Superior Spider-Man, a classic mind-swap story that saw Doctor Octopus switch minds with Peter Parker, then proceed to take over both his personal and heroic life. It was a pretty standard mind swap premise, but with a bit of a twist: shortly after Doctor Octopus forced the switch, his body -- which was now occupied by Peter Parker's mind -- died, seemingly giving the villain a final victory over his hated rival.

But it was never meant to last, of course. And today, Marvel has announced the anticipated return of Peter Parker as Spider-Man, with a new era for the character beginning in April's Amazing Spider-Man #1 by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos, marking the return of the flagship title for the publisher's most popular hero.

asm700thegroup-012

Hey, remember that time Wolverine, the Hulk and Ghost Rider became permanent members of the Fantastic Four? Or when Superboy, the Eradicator, Cyborg Superman and Steel replaced the forever-dead Clark Kent? Or how Jean-Paul Valley remains Batman to this day? How about Ben Reilly and how relevant he remains?

Oh, you don't remember any of that? All that stuff got reversed within a few months? Well, let me recover my monocle out of my piping-hot tea, because that's apparently flabbergasting. If some fo
