Andy Maguire aka Alpha
a 616 Miles Morales
a new Peter Parker clone
Kaine aka Scarlet Spider
Someone else entirely
I agree with the Morbius theory, I think he will escape to exact revenge on Spider-man (who is ock at the moment) and choose to help Ock (Peter) be rejuvenated. As far as SSM goes I do think it will be Peter, mentally that is. Right now I think he might be stuck in Ock's body after he's forced to destroy his body to stop Ock in 700. I think that his new aggressive attitude will be due to his no one dies ordeal, if he would have let Ock die he wouldn't be in this mess; I think that will be a story line SSM will deal with for the first portion of it's run.
Has there been anything that explicitly said it's not Alpha? I know there's a mini coming out for him, but that could just be the exposition, how he dealt with losing his powers and replaced Spidey. It seems like it's probably Alpha at this point.
so, im thinking...which hurts... spider/ock gets bit and all these side effects happen giving us the "superior spiderman" that we have seen. peter doesnt get his body back at the end of the ASM run and spends the Superior run trying to regain his 'life'.
at the end of ASM pete regains his body from Ock, with the vampire effects, and the Superior series is based on 'Vampire' Spiderman and trying to regain his life. And couping with all the negative effects of the Morbius bite.
Vampire Spidey would be weird and dark as Slott stated so I can see that. But, I do also believe Slott when he says Peter Parker will not be Superior; I think that part of that has to be true in some way. I think from a physical perspective it can't be Peter Parker's body...
Well, after reading Amazing Spider-Man #699, what if the Superior Spider-Man winds up being:
The Trapster, aka Paste Pot Pete? Laughable, I know but notice that he has the exact same initials as Peter Parker (his real name is Peter Petruski), that he's a scientific and technical genius just like Peter, his sticky goo could easily be remade into webbing, and he wears goggles which suspiciously look like the eye lenses of the Superior Spider-Man? Keep in mind, I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be him, nor do I think it will be him; but even so, you can see some VERY interesting comparisons and parallels already.

If Pete were a vampire that would explain the googles. He is sensitive to the sun or something.
Current Pull List: The Flash, Stormwatch, Batman Inc, Venom, Batman and Robin, Deadpool, BPRD, Hellboy, ASM, Scarlet Spider, And coming soon Superior Spiderman
I agree Otto will try to be a little more underhanded rather than going out and committing crimes as the new Spider-Man.
Am I nuts? Could be fun though.
