Dan Slott confirms Superior Spider-Man is NOT Peter Parker.

And just like that, a good chunk of my interest is gone. I don't want to read about a grim and gritty Spider-Man.

And here's a formal statement from Marvel that I hadn't seen before but was apparently released yesterday:
"Peter Parker has spent a lifetime living up to the responsibilities his powers foisted upon him but his Amazing story finally ends dramatically in the historic Spider-Man #700," Marvel said. "NOW! the new Spider-Man has arrived and he is better in every single way. Smarter, stronger... Superior."

"This is still very much the world of Spider-Man. There may be a new Spider-Man here, doing things in a new and different way, but you're going to see the Spider-cast reacting to this," Slott. "Youíre going to see how this Spider-Man will deal with our Spider-Man's villains. How will he react to this Spider-Man's supporting cast? That is clearly the world of this book. The world hasnít changed, just the hero."
Most of the benefit of the doubt that I expressed just two posts ago was predicated on Slott's handling of Peter Parker. Seeing now that Parker won't be Spider-Man has decreased my interest somewhat, because Ultimate Comics Spider-Man already provides a non-Parker Spidey. I'll still give this a try when it comes out in January since Slott is a damn good writer, but I'll be more willing to be ruthless in culling it out since it won't have Parker.
Assuming this lasts, I mean this isn't the first time Marvel tried this and it didn't stick then.
