While the fate of Peter Parker is yet to be revealed, Marvel Comics has answered at least one question on the mind of fans regarding the outcome of events in the “Death of Spider-Man” storyline taking place in “Ultimate Comics Spider-Man” and “Ultimate Avengers vs New Ultimates.” Today, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso revealed to the New York Post that, very soon, a new person will assume the identity of everyone’s favorite wall-crawler. “That’s not Peter Parker,” Alonso told The Post. “There’s going to be someone new wearing the costume.”

UPDATE: Marvel has issued the following press release and promo image featuring the new Ultimate Spider-Man.
