According to this article, Alpha's getting his own miniseries. And he IS involved in Amazing 700 somehow:
Quote: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.
Alpha's return was inevitable, sickening as that may be. The energy can't be fully removed without killing him. We saw at the end of the story that after being harassed at school that he had gripped his locker door hard enough to leave a dent in it, so his power is already coming back, possibly faster then expected.
Here's hoping with better artwork and some maturing of the character that Alpha can get past his weak debut.
