Like anyone else, I'm going to check out Superior #1 for the twist that Slott has offered. But if the twist isn't enough to keep me reading, then I'm done for the next two years.
I've stated before that I dont find Otto interesting as a character for long-term stories. He works best in short bursts. And I've also said I'm not fond of this storyline.
BUT... if you're gonna do a sales grab storyline like this, might as well all out with the replacement Spidey. To me, Otto is not redeemable character-wise, he did kill Captain Stacy.
As far as irredeemable sociopaths go, Deadpool to me would be a better Superior Spidey. He at least is entertaining to read when written right. He is Spider-man on Red Kryptonite f you think about it.
I know a lot of people feel Deadpool is massively overexposed ala Wolverine. He just needs the right writer behind him like Joe Kelly or Dan Slott regardless of his current snafu of a storyline.
Otto to me is very bland and monotonous where Deadpool is twisted and humorous. To see his interactions with the marvel universe and spidey's cast would be a comedic goldmine.
Would anyone else prefer Wade Wilson as Superior Spidey over Otto?
