Spencer & Lieber upgrade the bad-guys with THE SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN ongoing

Take A Walk On The Dark Side With THE SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN!

New York, NY—April 2nd, 2013— This July, critically acclaimed writer Nick Spencer and Eisner Award winning artist Steve Lieber put fans in the shoes of the all-new Sinister Six with The Superior Foes of Spider-Man #1! This all new ongoing, launching duringSuperior Spider-Month, gives fans a whole new look into the world of Superior Spider-Man,  great for lapsed and new readers alike!

With superior power comes superior responsibility…and superior villains!  Boomerang, Shocker, Speed Demon, the Beetle, and Overdrive take a cue from the Superior Spider-Man and get upgraded for a new era of evil – and the score of a lifetime! It’s a tale of suspense that’ll turn the Marvel Universe upside down – as only THE SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN can!

“The beauty of the Spider-Man world has always been that for all the web-slinging action and adventure, Peter Parker lives in the world outside your window and his villains reflect that,” explains Tom Brennan, editor, Marvel Entertainment. “The new world ofSuperior Spider-Man demands a look at the lives, lies, schemes and dreams of his villains.  Spider-Man’s evolved – will his villains as well?”

Following the embarrassing beating fromSuperior Spider-Man #1, can Boomerang and crew rebound to prove once and for all they can make it in the big leagues?

“This is a book about the working class guys; these are not the Kingpins or Green Goblins or Doc Ocks of the world,” explains Spencer in an interview with Marvel.com. “These are the small-time crooks looking for a quick score so they can pay their alimony and get the loan shark off their back. A lot of the book is from Boomerang’s perspective, and he’s very much aware of that—and he sees this new Sinister Six he’s formed as one last big shot at real money and real power. He’s got a lot riding on this.”

This July, Spencer and Lieber tangle with the Spider-Verse’s newly-infamous villains inThe Superior Foes of Superior Spider-Man #1!

  1. I think starting another “bad guy” series is good though I don’t know if I’ll stick with this one. The characters don’t really interest me, but with the creative team, it is worth a try.

    I wish Marvel would put out another Dr. Doom mini-series (or on-going). Ruler, sorcerer, and genius as well as a bond with Valeria Richards, there has to be some good stories ready to be told. I thought a Kingpin book told in the style of the Sopranos, but after Bendis and Brubaker’s run on Daredevil, fans may be done with that kind of story.

What do you think? Trending Pop Culture would like to know.
