Superior Spider-Man #1 Review
“Hero or Menace?”
After the tragic and unfortunate end of The Amazing Spider-Man, Superior Spider-Man was born,with the body of Spider-Man, but the mind and temperament of one Otto Octavius.
To be, or not to be Peter Parker, that is the question: Whether it’s nobler in the brilliant mind to suffer,
the slinging of webs of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a city in trouble, and by opposing end them: to die, to sleep no more.
Poetic right? I thought I would put my own spidey spin on it, and hopefully got my point across. In short, Dan Slott’s newest friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is no longer friendly, instead a brilliant damaged soul with an uncertain future as a hero. It’s a Spider-Man we’re not used to seeing, so why does this fresh change feel so damaging? Probably because he’s a jerk.
It’s a book I want to see do crazy things, hopefully Spidey get’s the boot from the Avengers, that would be one for the books. Disappointment of issue #1: ghosts.
