Okay, we recently posted an article listing the possibilities of what could happen in Amazing Spider-Man #700, that leads to someone else stepping in as the intrepid wallcrawler (you can read more about that here). But apparently earlier last week a potential bombshell of a spoiler hit the internet.
Before I even reveal what the tweet said I want to first point out the fact that this is Dan Slott, the man knows how Twitter works, and the odds that he just revealed the identity of the new Spider-Man are potentially slim. More than likely it’s a ploy especially considering the lengths he’s gone to keep any of the forthcoming changes securely under wraps. With that said the tweet was deleted quickly and the one image I found had parts of it (intentionally) redacted by the reporting website.
Here’s the screen cap posted by Bleeding Cool:
Alright so now that you’ve been given some context here come the real juicy morsels hidden beneath those black marks. If you don’t want it spoiled DO NOT SCROLL DOWN. You’ve been warned, here we go…
Here’s the info from ComicBook.com:
The tweet appears to refer to Spider-Man as “Miguel,” something that caught the eye of fans online who already suspected that this new Superior Spider-Man could be Miguel O’Hara, the star of the long-since-cancelled Spider-Man 2099 by Peter David and Rick Leonardi. Slott has written the character before–in the 2010 video game Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.
Yes you read that right, it sounds like we have a potential name to the man under the mask, but what do you guys think? Can this be true? If it is, will this be a colossal mistake or something interesting? And if he’s back in our time, where’s Peter Parker? Sound off with your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.
