What happens when you meet your greatest hero and he doesn’t turn out to be who you thought he was? Well, the Superior Spider-Panel set that question in motion for Flash Thompson, a.k.a. Venom, with the announcement of Darkest Hours, a four part story arc starting in Superior Spider-Man #22 and continuing through to Superior Spider-Man #25. For the cover to that, and some more Spider-News, take the jump.
We’ve featured a lot of male character fighting in the Major Spoilers Poll of the Week, but this week, we cast our gaze to the ladies. This week, the gorgeous ladies of comics enter the ring to mix it up.
Time to get back to a regular schedule with this Major Spoilers feature, and today we bring you Mark Brooks, who draws a pretty good looking Black Cat complete with shiny leather outfit.
As both Peter Parker and Spider-Man, his friends and family have always shaped Marvel’s most perennially popular protagonist. Many of Spider-Man’s greatest adventures have been infused with the additional drama directly derived from the presence of his loved ones. Some have been held captive by super villains, turned into were-creatures, beaten up, hospitalized, crippled, traumatized for life, turned into criminals, had their marriages dissolved and some have even made the ultimate sacrifice. No, not appearing in a Spidey book written by Todd McFarlane. I’m talking death, folks. Well, as dead as one can be in the today’s comic book marketplace.
No subset of Webhead’s cast of characters carries as much emphasis as the women in his life. While Puny Parker doesn’t do quite as well as Tony Stark, Matt Murdock or Bruce Wayne, his emo stylings have garnered him some positive earnings in the bank o’ love.

Marvel released a sneak peek of Amazing Spider-Man Presents: Black Cat #3 that arrives in stores on August 25, 2010.
Today, we go back to those we admire most with this Black Cat piece by Adam Hughes.

Marvel has unveiled the variant cover to the upcoming Amazing Spider-man Presents: Black Cat #1 featuring the title character drawn up nicely by J. Scott Campbell.
A lot of websites are reporting the rumor from their various sources that claim H’Wood is looking at Anne Hathaway to play Black Cat in the upcoming Spider-Man 4 movie.
Nikki Finke has a lot of insiders at the studios and reports
While Sony Pictures insists no decisions have been made, sources tell me that the producers have approached Anne Hathaway to star in the film.
As we have no inside sources in H’Wood, which is probably a good idea on so many levels, we’re just going by the stories everyone else is running. I’m not sold on Hathaway in anything other than a Disney movie from 9 years ago.Â What do you, The Major Spoiler Legion think?Â Does Hathaway do it for you, or should the studio keep looking?
Al Rio knows how to draw sexy women. Sure, they may not be a mirror of real life, but when trying to attract the eye to the cover of a comic book that you want to sell, I would want Al Rio in my corner.
Mark Brooks returns to the Art Appreciation Moment with his Black Cat piece.
