    USA Today further notes that Alpha's relationship with Spider-Man will change in "Amazing Spider-Man" #700, the final issue of the series that leads in to "Superior Spider-Man" #1 in January. Fialkov and Plati's miniseries spins directly out of the events of "Amazing" #700.

Slott always intended for people to DETEST Alpha.

I wonder if his possible resurrection as a hero will change that as planned as well?

Ah, but see I haven't been played at all since I detest everything about Spider-man since the Mephisto Mindwipe.

Also I sincerely doubt that Alpha is redeemable.

To be fair, other new heroes have also endangered innocent people. In his first appearance, Shaman created a blizzard that endangered thousands of innocent people just to capture Wolverine. During Psylocke's early stint with the X-Men, she wiped Havok's memory without his consent and did such an inept job of it that she caused him to have nightmares that caused him to lose control of his powers, which would have been a disaster if Alex had, for example, fallen asleep on a plane. In fact, that was my main objection to Peter getting rid of Alpha's powers- nobody tried to, for example, get rid of Shaman's or Betsy's powers.

Psylocke is a mutant, stripping a mutant of their power is sometimes tricky and can be harmful. For Shaman, take away his medicine bag.

But Alpha, right out of the gate was already becoming a world class threat with his ever growing power and irresponsibility. Peter was right to siphon his powers away until the kid grows up a bit and gets some maturity.

Though Spider-Man is pretty irreparable to me at this point with Joe Q and friends at the helm, I actually really enjoyed learning about and seeing some of the content of Alpha. It was just fun and I was excited to look for what happened next. I enjoy reading about a new hero/villain being formed the most and this was a pretty interesting take on a different kind of character getting powers. Although there seems to be a backlash in the sense that it makes the whole hero universe look like a joke. Some kid randomly gets powers that put him in a new category of hero's, it reminds me of the third X-men movie and a little bit of dragonballz. It seems to make lite of the whole marvel universe of hero's and though it's fun and interesting to me, I'm not sure if it was worth it. I mean frankly at this point in my eye's they have nothing to loose, but if I was actually as into it as I once was and was still buying, I'd be upset and rolling my eye's. But we've seen so much worse that this doesn't even move the scale. It all feels like a big joke since even before OMD.
