In Marvel's May solicitations, the beleaguered comic book publisher announced a new Ultimate Spider-Man series titled Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man from writer "The Great One" Brian Bendis and artist Dave Marquez. The first issue, according to the solicit, has "a last page that will have ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN fans SCREAMING!" This teaser is likely a honeypot to draw out known last page spoiler Rich Johnston, who cannot resist posting the last page of a comic on his website, Bleeding Cool, with the intention of getting his readers to spread spoilers all over the internet.
"Oi can't help meself, oi can't," said a visibly aroused Johnston after learning of the solicit.
After getting in an epicly passive aggressive Twitter fight with Amazing Spider-Man scribe and busybody Dan Slott over spoiling the final page of Batman #28, a comic Slott had nothing to do with, some believe the promise of a tantalizing final page in the new Ultimate Spider-Man book could be a honeypot meant to snag Johnston and bring him to justice.
The Outhouse spoke to one expert, who had the following comment:
