With great power comes great questions about Peter Parker’s faith, prompted by the undead marching around Harlem?
Apparently so, given the announcement of a new Amazing Spider-Man comic book series written by Jose Molina, part of the writing team behind ABC’s Agent Carter, to launch in November.
Molina told ComicBook.com that the series doesn’t just bring zombies to Harlem, but also re-introduces an obscure group of superheroes called the Santerians, created by Marvel CCO Joe Quesada — a group which will push Peter into areas fans might not expect from a Spider-Man story.
“The Santerians are attached to issues of religion and faith,” he explained. “I wanted to have them bring questions of faith into Spider-Man’s world and force him to grapple with ideas he hasn’t often wrestled with in the books… Peter Parker is a scientist by nature, but what if he finds that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in his philosophy?”
Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 4) #1.1 lands in November.
