Two weeks ago, we noticed that everyone in Marvel and DC Comics seemed to be getting doppelgängers in their series. Two weeks later and it is Marvel Comics who are doubling down on that. Expect spoilers for today’s Amazing Spider-Man, Daredevil, Mr & Mrs X, and Hunt For Wolverine.
In Amazing Spider-Man, Peter Parker gets a double of himself thanks to radioactive gubbins, a version created with the Spider-Man powers he now lacks, but without his feeling of responsibility….
These are ongoing storylines in two of Marvel’s major street-level superhero books. It is odd that both stories were signed off given their similarities. While the final page of issue 2 of Mr & Mrs X, opens up the egg that everyone has been after…
To reveal another Rogue inside. And in Hunt For Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor, while Psylocke has reverted to her Caucasian self from the pre-’90s, there is still someone else running around in her East Asian body…
There must be some other plotlines out there that Marvel could try? Maybe everyone turned to the same page of The Book by mistake?
