Oh! Oh! Look at the new teaser, he's about to take his mask off! He's taking it off and we'll find out who the new Ultimate Spider-Man is! Ohhhhh man, teaser's over. Shoot.
So, we still don't have any big new clues as to Ultimate Spidey's identity. It sure appears that it's a male, so Ultimate Jessica Drew (the female clone of Peter Parker in this universe) seems to be out of the running. Another clone? Eddie Brock? Someone on facebook said Miguel O'Hara (and why the heck not?) Well we'll find out in 5 days. Will there be more daily countdowns over the weekend? If there are, we'll faithfully put them up for you!
Update July 28: As predicted, we have another teaser for you today courtesy of Marvel and Sesame Street's The Count. With 6 days until the new Ultimate Spider-Man, we have a three panel action sequence.
Of note in this sequence is the classic wavy lines indicating the Spider-sense, Spider-Man's special ability that warns him of danger. This apparently shows that the new Ultimate Spidey is a full-featured one, though whether this is a clue to his identity remains to be seen. Will we follow 6 with 5? Tune in tomorrow to find out!
Original Story: A new Marvel teaser landed in the Newsarama inbox this morning. It's listed as "Teaser 1," and could very well be the start of an official Marvel countdown. For now, it's seven days until the new Ultimate Spider-Man, replacing the deceased young Peter Parker.
7 Days Until…The All-New Ultimate Comics Spider-Man Debuts!
Watch as history is made.
