Marvel has announced a new Superior Foes of Spider-Man series, focusing on a group of D-list villains that include a new female Beetle, perennial joke Shocker, Speed Demon, Overdrive, and Boomerang. The series will be written by Nick Spencer, with art by Steve Lieber. According to Newsarama, the five foes will form a new Sinister Six and will explore the villains knowing that something is different with Spider-Man.
While we weren't privy to any special details about the comic, we did manage to imagine what the pitching meeting was like:
Nick Spencer: And Boomerang's going to be the main character. He's like sooooo freakin' real. He's the realest character I know.
Steve Wacker: Maybe it's all the pot that I've smoked today, but this sounds like the greatest comic ever. How long do you have this plotted out for?
Spencer: Like 100 issues. This thing is going to sell like hotcakes.
Dan Slott: Hotcakes? I love hotcakes! We need to go to IHOP. Just let me finish telling this message board guy that I banged his mom last night and we can get some pancakes.
Wacker: So, we're in agreement. IHOP for dinner and a new series about Spider-Man's least known foes in July.
Slott: Best. Pitch. Meeting. EVER!!!
