MAJOR SPOILER For Spider-Man #1 by JJ Abrams, Henry Abrams and Sara Pichelli That No One Saw Coming, Tiger

Okay, the following contains some seriously strong spoilerage for the upcoming JJ Abrams/Henry Abrams/Sara Pichelli Spider-Man series debuting this week. I haven’t seen a copy, but the people who are talking about this are the kind of people who would know. Not about plot, not about cliffhanger, this is about the very concept of the comic in question.

Firstly, I am told by good sources that this is not a PR job. JJ Abrams did actually co-write the comic with his son Henry Abrams. Properly and everything, This is not just Henry playing off his father’s name. He and his father did properly collaborate on this comic book. Jude, you are wrong, you are very wrong.

Secondly, the idea of father and son on the comic is intrinsic to the concept of this Spider-Man series. It is part and parcel of it and may make the comic even more appealing?

Why? Because Spider-Man #1 is not about Peter Parker, Spider-Man.

It is about Ben Parker, Spider-Man. The son of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson, the inheritor of the Spider-Man identity – and the story is set in the future of the Marvel Universe. Something that had not even been hinted at in preview material. And that means that there are probably blatant lies in the solicitations listed for the first three issues.
