This week, Spider-Man has grappled with Doctor Octopus, had a shocking encounter with Electro and nearly disappeared at the hands of Mysterio. Today, Marvel Comics finished out the week of "Ends of the Earth" teasers from Gabrielle Dell'Otto featuring the Sinister Six with the wall-crawler in peril at the nefarious hands of Rhino, Sandman and Chameleon. Beginning in "Amazing Spider-Man" #682 written by Dan Slott with art by Stefano Caselli, "Ends of the Earth" is the newest Spider-Man event coinciding with the web-slinger's 50th Anniversary.
In 2011, Slott teased the lead-in to "Ends of the Earth," highlighting the reformation of the Sinister Six and Doc Ock's recent villainous achievements in the Marvel U.
"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."
Earlier this month, Marvel also released four new teaser images for "Ends of the Earth" including a look at Spider-Man's new suit for the event.
