News: Spider-Man: With Great Power

Posted by dave, October 21, 2007 at 2:03 am · No Comments ·

Apparently there’s going to be this new limited series coming out in January called Spider-Man: With Great Power. It will be set basically within Amazing Fantasy 15, which means I won’t be able to read it in order (assuming it’s canon). Nuts to that. It looks kinda neat, though.

As Warren said, there’s this panel in Amazing Fantasy #15, on page 9 right between Spidey letting the thief run by him and right before Uncle Ben gets killed. One panel where there’s a bunch of headlines telling us about how famous Spider Man’s become doing the wrestling and Tonight Show circuit. The caption reads, ‘In the days that follow, Spider Man becomes the sensation of the Nation.’ It’s a very unspecified period of time. Weeks? Months? We don’t know. There’s a lot of room for play in that panel. I read it as: this is where Peter Parker lives life in the fast lane. This is where he gets a big head. Gets a taste of money and girls for the first time. This is the salad days.
