Since taking over the reigns of Marvel’s SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN TEAM UP title last month with issue #9, I’ve had a great time contributing to the story arc of Superior Spider-Man’s fall from grace, as the ego-maniacal Spidey-Ock realizes he’s not so superior after all — The “rise” portion of the arc being written by the amazing Chris Yost, whose name (in a blow to my own ego) still graces the cover of SSMTU #10 due to an oversight on Marvel’s part. Nonetheless, the passing of the baton has gone very well (see a review of issue #9 here) and my only hope is that Marvel will accidentally put my name on the next THOR movie since Chris is also the brilliant writer behind that.

Moving forward, however, (because only the best people do) I’ll get a chance to add a storyline of my own next month by delving into the past and bringing two super-villains together who, oddly enough, have never truly appeared together since Spider-Man first swung onto the scene in 1962. Namely, the Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus. Arguably Spider-Man’s top two villains, these guys have never consciously shared the same page together (that we were aware of) yet all that will change with Superior Spider-Man Team-Up issues #11 and 12. And to mark the pivotal point at which this happens in the current Spider-Man time line, Paul Rivera has created two awesome covers that come together to create one amazing image. Read more about it here and pick up a few much needed chapters in Spider-Man’s history on comic book Wednesdays.
