Zdarsky expresses excitement at the comic's prospects
Zdarsky said, "I guess I'm just not done with Spidey! This is an idea I've had since I first started working for Marvel, something that explores the characters and the Marvel universe on a deeper level, where time changes both the characters and the world".
Why this comic promises to be the most intriguing?
Superheroes as we know them, rarely age. They maintain a state of stasis and fixed code of ethics.
However, in the upcoming Spider-Man issue, the story will explore the changing world around the webcrawler, perhaps forcing him to reconsider some ethics.
Interestingly, perhaps, it will raise the question of the need for heroes and villains in today's world, making the series' potential truly exciting.
