Venom Darkens “Superior Spider-Man #22”

The roller coaster ride that is Dan Slott’s Superior Spider-Man is about to take a turn into a dark tunnel with “Superior Spider-Man #22.” Peter Parker’s interactions with the Venom symbiote have always push him to the edge and forced Parker to go visit a darker place than he’d ever wanted to see. With Otto Octavius now in control of Peter Parker’s body, and acting as a “Superior” Spider-Man, how far will a confrontation with Venom go when Spider-Man no longer has qualms about killing?

“Be warned—we have some nasty stuff planned,” said series writer Dan Slott. “Venom always brings out Spider-Man’s dark side, and we’re taking that ten steps further in this latest arc. You should probably read this in a sunny, well-populated area.”

The way things have been going with Superior Spider-Man, and the history between Venom and Spider-Man, I don’t doubt that we’ll see some of the darkest stuff coming from Slott with the issues involving Venom.

Check out the awesome cover to “Superior Spider-Man #22” by Humberto Ramos as well as the official Marvel press release, below.

“Be warned—we have some nasty stuff planned,” said series writer Dan Slott. “Venom always brings out Spider-Man’s dark side, and we’re taking that ten steps further in this latest arc. You should probably read this in a sunny, well-populated area.”

Nobody had pushed Peter Parker harder than Venom—will Otto Octavius face the same brink? As the symbiote’s tentacles wrap around Otto’s new life, everything he’s worked, sacrificed, and even killed for face their greatest jeopardy yet. One of the biggest books of Marvel NOW! is about to get even crazier in year two, as The Superior Spider-Man’s journey takes a new dark twist.

“There is no better brawl to get the blood pumping like a showdown between Spider-Man and Venom,” said Marvel Senior Editor Steve Wacker. “Now that Otto’s in the driver’s, we can see these two clash with a viciousness we’ve never seen before. Believe me when I say we’ve been saving up for this one!”

With his life turned upside-down by his most ruthless enemy, can the Superior Spider-Man live up to his name? Find out as Venom reigns this November in “Superior Spider-Man #22!”
