Marvel's Peter Parker back as 'Amazing Spider-Man'
NEW YORK (AP) - January 12, 2014 (WPVI) -- Spider-Man is about to be "amazing" again.
Peter Parker's body has been inhabited by the mind of the villainous Otto Octavius, also known as Doctor Octopus. Marvel Entertainment tells the New York Daily News on Sunday that Parker is getting back inside his skin more than a year after writer Dan Slott penned the swap that saw "The Amazing Spider-Man" end with issue No. 700.
That was replaced by Octavius' adventures in the twice-monthly "Superior Spider-Man."
Now, Slott tells the newspaper (http://nydn.us/1dnqzbg), Parker is returning to a world that didn't know he had been gone.
Slott says new challenges are afoot for the character created by Steve Ditko and Stan Lee.
The first issue of "Amazing Spider-Man", drawn by Huberto Ramos, is out in April.
Disney is the parent company of Marvel and 6abc.
