In a new interview conducted by CBR News, Nick Spencer reveals that despite the apparent cancellation of Superior Spider-Man that his book The Superior Foes of Spider-Man will live on. The interview is full of all kinds of interesting tidbits about the history of the book and where it is headed. Here are a few points that I found intriguing:
CBR News: “The Superior Foes of Spider-Man” was born out of the “Superior Spider-Man” series. When it was announced that that title will soon be coming to an end, some people were worried Peter Parker’s return might mean the end of this book. But the April solicits came out, and that doesn’t appear to be the case.
Nick Spencer: Yes, it was really nice because we ran the solicits for issue #12, which the entire Internet told me would never, ever happen! [Laughs] It was a bit of a milestone for us, and I can go ahead and reveal that when the book started, we were told that we had 12 issues.
Later on he talks about the future of the series and how it will go far beyond the initial 12 books that Marvel had signed on for:
CBR News: Can you hint or tease some of the events or the gags of the next few issues?
Nick Spencer: Fred is going to get a showdown with a rival villain that he feels very much wronged by. We’re finally going to see Shocker, again. We’ve haven’t seen him since he absconded with the head of Silvermane a couple months ago, so we’re going to touch base with him, and we’re obviously going to explore the reaction of the rest of the Six to being double-crossed by Boomerang.
CBR News: The solicits for April’s #12 suggest that a new story will begin in that issue?
Nick Spencer: In issue #12, we’re getting to the point where all these various, seemingly unconnected plotlines are going to converge and bump into each other. That should create a lot of chaos for everyone involved.
