    Default Did Wacker just reveal the identity of SSM?

    From a newarama interview: Wacker: It’s been hard to describe the book, but getting people excited hasn’t been a problem. Marvel’s PR guys Arune Singh and James Viscardi have sharpened our message to a fine point, and Dan’s a natural promoter without being as huckster-y as me. He’s also, I think, built up a good amount of credibility with fans and retailers over the years. So excitement was never a concern... living up to it is the challenge!
    And to answer your other question: It would be very presumptuous to assume ASM #698 gave you a final answer to anything.

    Hey before I go... Anyone know anything about “Cardiac”? "

    Could it be? Is Cardiac the new spider-man?

    Just kidding. Wacker is just playing with us, but great interview. I'm surprised to hear how long Dan has had the idea for Dying Wish in his wheelhouse. 700 can't come out soon enough.

    Also, Stegman's interiors from SSM#2 reminds me of Capullo from Batman. This is a very good thing!

    Oh, you Cardiac fans are cute, but I think we Morbius fans ultimately win in the "obscure character getting a chance" race. Maybe next decade.

    I wouldn't exactly classify one of Spidey's well known rogues/sometimes ally as obscure Anyhow I'd put characters like Sif & Legion in the category of "whoa didn't expect them to get ongoings!" as well.

    Not trying to be a jerk, as I think Cardiac is an alright character. But yeah he is completely obscure at this point! They should make him a Thunderbolt or something to up his profile a bit. Because he is kind of in danger of being a one panel death in a big fight scene at this point.

    I was trying to say that Morbius wasn't obscure so sorry for the confusion on that part BUT yeah I'd definitely say Cardiac is pretty obscure at this point.

    Ah sorry I misunderstood. Morbius definitely has a higher profile.

    When he said Cardiac, I'm certain he was playing with his fans. I'm sure it it meant as cardiac arrest... as in Peter in Doc Ock isn't dead yet as we were led to assume by the issues end.

    I really don't know why Cardiac isn't doing something in the Marvel U at this point. Pretty awesome character design and a totally underused character, I'd be way stoked if he popped up on a Thunderbolts team. It's one of the best things Erik larsen created at Marvel, give the guy something to do.

    Morbius has always had a high profile than Cardiac. In fact, almost everyone has a higher profile than Cardiac LOL

    The exact name of the book escapes me at the moment but I believe his last appearance was a one page story in one of the Fear Itself tie-in books.

    I agree. IMO, the best possible way that MIGHT make lesser known and/or less popular obscure characters (especially obscure non white minority characters) more popular is to put them in a team book.

    I agree. Morbius also had a solo book back in the 90's as part of the whole MIDNIGHT SONS line of books and crossovers. Morbius also appeared in several episodes of the 90's SPIDER-MAN cartoon.
