It’s not very often that comic book villains get their own series, even though it’s something fans would really dig for some characters, but Marvel has announced an all-new ongoing comic series starring a slew of bad guys. Launching this July, The Superior Foes of Spider-Man will feature Boomerang, Shocker, Speed Demon, the Beetle, and Overdrive as they try to go from being regular criminals to big time underworld players. Secret Avengers writer Nick Spencer will script the series with artist Steve Lieber on pencils.
“This is a book about the working class guys,” said Spencer “These are not the Kingpins or Green Goblins or Doc Ocks of the world. These are the small-time crooks looking for a quick score so they can pay their alimony and get the loan shark off their back. A lot of the book is from Boomerang’s perspective, and he’s very much aware of that—and he sees this new Sinister Six he’s formed as one last big shot at real money and real power. He’s got a lot riding on this.”
