    Spider-Man isn't taking on Ultimate Spider-Man's numbering. It's taking on Spider-Man/Peter Parker: Spider-Man's numbering.

  2. Spider-Dad

    Over/under on when Marvel goes back to issue #1 on each series? I say, right after Amazing Spider-Man 800 and SSM #300.

    natshuck44 : You are probably correct. If so it is a ridiculous numbering reconstruction. Renew Your Vows is not in the same Universe with the Amazing Spider-Man run. More important, it is not even in the same filing cabinet.

    Amazing Spider-Man (700 issues between volumes 1 and 2, 18 in volume 3, and 32 in volume 4), plus 33 issues of Slott’s Superior Spider-Man that temporarily replaced Amazing Spider-Man, and the five-issue Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows miniseries ASM (vols.1&2) 700 Superior Spider-Man (2013) 33 ASM (vol.3 2014) 18 ASM: Renew Your Vows (2015) 5 ASM (vol. 4 2015) 32 788

    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN LEGACY NUMBERS take two: To get to 788 issues released before new announced Legacy number of 789: Amazing Volumes 1 and 2 straight numbers 700 Amazing Volume 3 straight numbers 18 Amazing Volume 4 announced through Sept 13,2017 release 32 So straightforward legacy numbering is (700 + 18 +32) = 750 Since this is WAY short of the announced number, add in: Superior Spider-Man including two late ones ( 33) which gets to 783. Not yet included: Vol 2 - early Point Ones (3) didn't really have Spider-Man in them, and were not counted before #700 Vol 2 - 700.1 to 700.5 (5) late maybe this is considered an imaginary story Vol 3 Spiral - 16.1 to 20.1 (5) Vol 4 Amazing Grace - 1.1 to 1.6 (6) So Include Spiral to get to the required (783 + 5) = 788 Not sure what the rationale to include Spiral without including Amazing Grace would be, except that Spiral was the ONLY Amazing Spider-Man comic published dated Aug, Sept, or Oct 2015 . If they had included Amazing Grace (6) and thrown in Vol 2 700.1 to 700.5 (5) for good measure then the number of previously released issues would have been (788 + 6 + 5 ) = 799 and they could have called the first Legacy Number 800, but they must not have wanted to do this for some reason. Of course this whole analysis falls apart if the Amazing Spider-Man comic to be released in October 2017 turns out to be ASM Vol 4 # 33, rather than ASM #789. Cheers

    AMAZING -- It looks like they are going to count SUPERIOR. Also either 700.1 through 700.5, or the three earlier Point One issues, but not all of these.

    I got excited when I saw the Spider-Man titles and thought, "Wow! They are bringing back adjectiveless Spider-Man! and then I realized that it was Miles Morales, which while not a bad thing, not what I was hoping for.

    All I know is that I live in a world where Spectacular Spider-Man #300 will exist so I'm happy

    Okay, I'm a little confused here. WHAT is this?!! Is MARVEL LEGACY supposed to happen after Secret Empire finishes? So it's Secret Empire, then Marvel Legacy #1, then the Generations, then each book going off to it's original numbering and from now on be called Marvel Legacy? Is this Marvel's answer to DC's Rebirth (which I'm loving btw, AND I'M A SPIDER-MAN FAN.)? So it's going to continue on with what we've been reading, but getting "back to basics"? I..I just don't get it. I need some clarification on what exactly this is. ASM: Renew Your Vows: EIGHT YEARS LATER. that arc just a one shot or is this going to be the established path this book will take from now on? Still looking forward to it, RYV is the best Spidey book out there, just would like some clarification on what "MARVEL LEGACY" is. Please and Thank You!
