    What. The. Hell.

    If this is for real he better not reveal his identity to the kid. Also I'm going to assume he dies by 700.

    It's for real. The editor-in-chief is quoted. Maybe he mentors him undercover, (since supposedly the Horizon employees think he's Spidey's gadget builder) by "asking" Spider-Man for tips and setting up meetings?

    Just dug this up: http://forbiddenplanet.com/89575-ama...tm_medium=feed

    Spider-Man's 50th Anniversary adventure ratchets up as an old foe returns! And an ALL-NEW character joins the Marvel Universe! WHO IS ALPHA?!
    So I guess this thing is for real. Does this feel weird to anyone? Or will they actually be able to pull this off? And what the hell will his powers be?



    EDIT: The info for issue 692 said this if anyone cares:
    A special over-sized issue harkening back to the legend the legend that started it all! Get ready for an all-new tale about a different kind of power and responsibility...

    Well, that villain better not be the Beetle, that's for sure.

    The teaser is so stupid. "Who is Alpha?" implies it's someone who matters, not some new kid...

    I think after 700 Peter will just open his own school and start teaching kids. He's apparently pretty good at it.

    Maybe what matters is going to be how jacked up his powers are??

    Very interesting development, didn't think this would happen at all. I wonder what's going to happen going forward...

    Well, I can say that I'm less worried about She-Hulk now.
