    Like Azrael? Or Moon Knight's sidekick Midnight? Man, that would be bad.

    They could have done this back in the 80s with Ollie, the Spider-Kid. But Spider-Man was too cool to take on sidekicks at the time, and also had too much sense to bring a kid to a fight with a monster like the Hobgoblin. I guess now that's okay.

    This could be interesting. I have faith in Dan Slott at this point and I doubt Alpha will become a regular character. So long as he doesn’t die or become a villain at the end I don’t have a problem with this.

    Marvel doesn't really do sidekicks.

    Why can't Spidey just dump the kid at Avengers Academy? I'm not saying it's a perfect facility, but at least it's designed to train teenage heroes.

    If the only reason Spider-Man is allowing him to fight crime with him is because Alpha is "supposedly" stronger than him, then I foresee Spider-Man getting shown up a lot. And I'm not going to look forward to that. And if this kid actually replaces Peter Parker as Spider-Man in issue 700? I'm just dropping the book.

    Actually, a part of me thinks that all this hype for Alpha is just setting him up to either become the next big Supervillain or die in a terrible way. Or just make Spidey's life even worse.

    If Slott can prove me wrong, then so be it. But for now, I'm not really looking forward to this.

    I meant more in the way of how Spider-Man has to have that constant tragic element to him. If he takes this kid under his wing, and he turns evil, Spidey will blame himself and it plays up to that.

    That or he'll end up dead, which would give the same effect. I'm betting more on the "he'll go bad" angle, though, as that can be drawn out more.

    Anyone else notice how this kid looks a whole lot like Risk from Dan Jurgen's Teen Titans. Not Risk's first costume or his current one, the streamlined costume he wore in the middle. Only the pattern is different.

    Not sure that I like that he's "more powerful" than Spider-Man. And really, I know there's been an overly zealous trend (especially at DC) to give new superheroes different ethnicities and unique names, but did they really have to give him a name as mundane as "Andy"? What is this, the '50's?!?

    Still, I'm intrigued...

    After 50 years, I think it's been proven Spider-Man doesn't need a sidekick, so why start now?

    Because it's the best way they can think of to introduce a new character. Whether or not Alpha ultimately becomes a villain, gets killed off, or gets spun into his own series, is open to question. As I am not reading anything from Marvel these days, I'm not really willing to invest anything into this. Just as well, considering that it's going to end up a letdown somehow, some way.

    Calling it. Before this year ends Marvel will give him his own title only to cancel it later in 2013.

    Seriously Marvel has you finally run out ideas for Spidey that finally you decide to give him sidekick?

    Hold on.... Andrew Garfield + Tobey Maguire = Andy Macguire (?) Who knows.

    Sounds like a late n' lame (but mostly late) idea, on the other hand, I trust Dan Slott to make the story somewhat fun in some way. Eh, I'll wait and see how it starts.
