Doctor Octopus just can't give up on Superior Spider-Man, so much so that Marvel Comics has announced a new series launching in December. Written by Christos Gage with art by Mike Hawthorne, Superior Spider-Man will see Doctor Otto Octavius giving up on his Doc Ock persona to try to prove again that he's a better hero than Peter Parker.

The original Superior Spider-Man series ran from January 2013 to June 2014 and saw Otto Octavius planting his mind into Peter Parker's body after the latter's death.

The solicit text for the first issue is below.


Otto Octavius leaves the moniker of Doctor Octopus behind and once again becomes THE SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN! If you think you've already read the most intense and surprisingly heartbreaking Superior Spider-Man story, prepare to be wrong. Otto is going to prove to the world that he's the most effective and (to him at least) the best super hero in the world. But when a villain that overpowers him by so much shows up in San Francisco, there's no way Ock can win, right? Can you see Otto smirking from where you're reading this?
