Today, Marvel continued its week of teaser images for Dan Slott's upcoming "Amazing Spider-Man" six issue event, "Ends of the Earth," featuring four bookend issues with art by Stefano Caselli. Beginning in March with "Amazing Spider-Man" #682 -- just in time for the book's 50th Anniversary -- the story arc features the new Sinister Six and the fruition of Dr. Otto Octavius' master plan to take over the entire globe. While the first teaser featured the Sinister Six and yesterday's offering depicted humans in agony, today is the first glimpse of the web-slinger himself -- and he's suiting up for battle.
"We've seen Doc Ock and the Sinister Six slowly building and percolating this master plan," Slott said in 2011. "On the way it's stretched out into the Marvel Universe proper. We've seen Doc Ock totally smack down Iron Man. He totally wiped the floor with Hank Pym's team in 'Avengers Academy.' Over in 'Spider-Man' during an FF team up, Doc Ock pwned Reed Richards! He took over the Baxter Building and stole all kinds of stuff. Doc Ock's been taking out the biggest brains on his stomp to global domination."
Check out the teaser image and solicitation info below and stay tuned to CBR News for more on "Ends of the Earth."
