Marvels' Newest Spider-Man Tease

I doubt their do what their teasing--at least having it stay in canon--sorry but Marvel killed a lot of my faith in them with OMD.

Books I'm getting

Batman and Robin #35: You know I'm not a fan of this series because of how Tomasi handles the book. So why am I getting this? Well for a birthday present I was got to choose two current comics as gifts. Honestly I couldn't think of any new books I wanted. I only chose this for three reasons: 1.) It has Jason Todd. 2.) I like the art. 3.) I want to see if Tim's still tall.

Supergirl #35: This was my first choice for my gift. I originally wanted to get it because of the Jason appearance but declined because of not liking the writers' work on another book. I hope it's a good read as I wasn't happy with the interview.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #36: Just when I think I have Lobdell figured he surprises me. I think if this was nearly any other writer this series would be getting a lot of attention. While the subject matter isn't one I'd like to explore I'm impressed with what I've seen so far.

Gotham Academy #2: I enjoyed the first issue and I'm curious to see where the plotlines go.

New Warriors #12: The last issue of Yosts' version of the team. It makes me sad to see another of my books ending. This was a good series but because it's not mainstream enough it's cancelled. I hope at the very least the team stays together and shows up as the New Warriors in other books.

Scarlet Spiders: I'm still unsure about this three part mini series. On the one hand there's Ben Reilly and Kaine. On the other it's Spiderverse. Still I'm pretty sure it's a different writer...

Spiderverse and my feelings on it thus far

I quit Marvel years ago after they ended the MC2 Spider-Girl series. It was the only thing that got me to hang around after One More Day. I recently returned to buy Scarlet Spider (Kaine Parker) trades and get the criminally underrated New Warriors by Yost. I've been iffy on Spiderverse since it's basically just an excuse to kill off different spider characters. From what I've read it doesn't matter if these version are beloved or from a cartoon series--chances are they will be brutally murdered. Some of them already have been. There are two bright spots in this however as there will be mingling of these characters and other writers will be handling mini series.

Seeing how some of my favorites have already been slaughtered for this storyline I'm not that thrilled. That said the team for Spider-Girl will be returning for a story which I want to get out of loyalty to them (plus they actually know how to write Mayday.) Maybe Scarlet Spiders since I'm a fan of Kaine and Ben...I'm not familiar with Jessica. Even so it's a little weird for someone that's been reading DC to see all these $3.99 price tags.

Speculation for SPIDER-VERSE TEAM-UP #3 ahead.

I feel the need to post this because it's come to my attention that a certain event has stripped her of her characterization recenty.

Bette Kane: Wash Out Sidekick or Most Determined Hero Ever?

I've been trade waiting Batwoman and skipped one to get to the Wonder Woman team up. There was also a few issues of Detective Comics that weren't released in trade. I recently backtracked to fill in the gaps which creates an interest portrait of Bette Kane.
