You might be used to duos like “Batman and Robin” but there’s a new one coming out of the Marvel Universe that you will soon have to learn, “Spider-Man and Alpha.” That’s right, the Webslinger’s 50th anniversary celebration continues by giving Spider-Man a new partner in [fighting] crime. Today, Marvel revealed that Spider-Man will be getting a sidekick, Alpha, in The Amazing Spider-Man #692 coming this August.
Check out the covers for The Amazing Spider-Man #692 and #693 below (Click thumbs to enlarge):
Alpha, Andy Macguire, is a teen who was on a trip to Peter Parker’s lab. Much like Peter’s origin story, Alpha gets caught in an accident in the lab and is given new powers. No doubt, Peter, now a well seasoned Spider-Man, feels responsible for the accident and takes Andy under his wing as a hero in training.
What could this mean for the future of Spider-Man comics? We will see! The Amazing Spider-Man #692 hits comic stores and digital comics this August.
