Superior Spider-Man - Amazing - Ben Rosenthal

1.  A close up of Otto/Peter from the chest up.  He is staring at something on the table in front of him, but it is off panel so we cannot see it.

All of Peter’s powers.  His past.  His life.

2.  A closer panel showing Otto/Peter smirking triumphantly.  He is still concentrating on what is in front of him, yet we can still not see it.

Hmmm…Gwen and Peter went swimming.  I’ll look into that memory later.
Of all that I have inherited from Parker there is one thing I enjoy the most.

3.  A wide shot so we can see what is in fact on Otto/Peter’s table.  It is a smorgasbord of food – fried, chocolate, pizza – all the bad stuff.  Otto/Peter is delving into the food as if he had been starving for a week.

His amazing metabolism.


  1. Haha. I wasn't sure where this page was going but that last panel lends it a nice, light touch.

  2. Great idea, Ben. And thanks for bringing the Superior one to the table!

  3. Like Dan I was unsure where you might take this page, but your choice is bang on. Its light and fun and fits in neatly with both Parker and Otto. I also liked the little nod to the old series with the final caption reading amazing. That word just goes hand in hand with Spider-man now.

  4. I always like it when comic-books play with superpowers in unique ways. After months of Doc Ock being on deaths doors and the ULTIMATE VILLAIN, it's nice seeing someone actually show a levity to the character.

    I mean, who wouldn't pig out. He knows Peter will eventually get the body back, so worst case scenario is he forces Peter to put on a few pounds via extreme eating.


    You're totally going to steal that now. Curses!

  5. Haha. Well played, Mr. Rosenthal. Well played.
