Well that completely sucks...

...so where is the real Spider-Woman? I'm hoping she's somewhere locked up with all the other replaced heroes in some Skrull facility. Maybe she'll escape and take down the Queen. So if there is no new SOLO book, what was Spider-Woman Origins retcon all about and both SW Essentials? |
Do I need to do a variant/reimagining where Jessica takes down the Queen?
: I never lost hope, but I guess this was all a
: big mind f*** from day one.
: CBR: In the pages of “New Avengers” it was
: hinted that Spider-Woman had been replaced
: by a Skrull, and here her attack on Echo
: confirms it.
: BENDIS:There are quite a few people on my
: message boards and the CBR ones who are
: gigantic Spider-Woman fans and they’ve loved
: me for bringing her back. With her being in
: a number one book, she’s had a wave of good
: fortune that she hasn’t seen since her
: heyday. And the whole time I was writing
: her I’d think those fans are going to
: ####ing lose their shit because we’ve had
: this planned since “New Avengers” #1. You
: can go back to issue #1 and see hints.
: There’s not a segment of the readership that
: I haven’t felt worse about doing this to
: than the Spider-Woman fans. I want to
: express publicly that your love of the
: character will not be lost.
: Now you know why the “Spider-Woman” series
: didn’t happen. We thought about doing it
: and having her revealed as a Skrull in the
: first issue of her series. Last year, we
: we’re going to do the series and at the end
: of the issue she’d do something wrong, go
: off somewhere private and revert to Skrull
: form. It would be like, “Woah! The lead
: character of the book isn’t who she thought
: she was!” I wrote it, but in the end I just
: thought it wasn’t selling somebody what they
: thought you were selling them. But if you
: did it as part of a team book it’s much less
: bullshitty. You expect things to happen in a
: team book but if you’re buying
: “Spider-Woman,” you want Spider-Woman.
: Oh well, it was good to at least see her (or
: having the illusion that it was her)in some
: cool action scenes and a bunch of
: nicely-written modern books.
