According to a Marvel press release that just dropped this afternoon, readers should keep their eyes pointed toward tomorrow’s sale of The Amazing Spider-Man #64 for “something sinister.” More to the point, the teaser image’s full text reads “Something sinister this way cometh” and “The road to Spider-Man’s greatest battle begins tomorrow 4/21 in Amazing Spider-Man #64.”
While Marvel could always throw a curveball, whenever the word “sinister” is bandied about in connection to Spidey, that’s usually an indication that he’s in for a battle with some incarnation of his foes The Sinister Six, composed of some permutation of his rogue’s gallery.
Should the group be reforming, who will make up those six villains? Maybe Marvel will give us some breadcrumbs tomorrow when The Amazing Spider-Man #64 drops on newsstands.
