Newsarama.com : Marvel Prepares for the End of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN's Era

Quote:
***This article contains spoilers for Amazing Spider-Man #698 and beyond.***



Since the dawn of the "Brand New Day" era in 2008, things have gone pretty well for Peter Parker. Sure, there have been notable hiccups along the way, but he's got his dream job at Horizon Labs, saved the world with the Avengers and joined the Fantastic Four's Future Foundation even his Aunt May is now happily married, albeit to J. Jonah Jameson's father.

That changed with last week's Amazing Spider-Man #698, which revealed that one of his oldest enemies, Doctor Octopus, managed to switch bodies meaning that Doc Ock is running around in Peter Parker's healthy, powerful body, and Spidey is as close to death as someone can reasonably be. And no one else knows. This all leads to December's oversized Amazing Spider-Man #700, which promises another major twist, and also ends the long run of that series (for now, at least this is comic books, after all), and paves the way for the debut of Superior Spider-Man in January, a new series starring a new Spider-Man (who might not Doc Ock, but is said to definitely not to be Peter Parker), from current Amazing creators Dan Slott, Humberto Ramos and Giuseppe Camuncoli, with the addition of artist Ryan Stegman, recently of Fantastic Four.

There's a lot going on with Spider-Man, so we talked to the Marvel senior editor that's been in charage of the character and his world for the past few years Stephen Wacker about how long this has all been developing, how this relates to Spidey's 50-year legacy, leaked spoilers, pointed reactions from passionate fans, and more.
