Review by: Eric Schaen AKA Mighty Mouth @ AICN

It Won’t Stick, But That Doesn’t Mean SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN sucks.

Sometimes, you just have to wait and see. I was little surprised at the complete and utter fanboy reaction the masses had to AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700. Undeniably, transferring Otto Octavius mind into Parker’s body and leaving Peter for dead is incredibly provocative, even for comics. But did anyone really believe this would be permanent?

SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #1 picks up with Otto continuing his pledge to be a better superhero than Peter ever was. However, Ock is quickly learning that this undertaking may not be as simple as he predicted. Oh sure, he may have the abilities and memories of Peter Parker, but will he have the resourcefulness to cope with Parker’s responsibilities? Only time will tell.

continued below...


H8ters will be h8ting, but I think Dan Slott knows what he is doing with SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN. Slott gives us a radically fresh approach to the character, and maybe the biggest obstacle of all for Peter Parker to overcome. As Spidey, Octavius is anything but friendly; he is calculating, fast to strike and without mercy. He also wisecracks with far more pretentiousness than Peter ever dreamed of exhibiting. As Peter, Otto seems to be happy dividing his time between scientific pursuits at Horizon Labs (Peter’s place of employment) and romancing the red-hot Mary Jane Watson.

Your Comments:
I was ready to hate the superior spider man but I have to admit that I love it. Yes we all know peter will be back someday, (probably after Otto has destroyed the improved life peter had built for himself)but in the meantime the book is freaking hilarious and I have loved seeing the different ways otto handles peter's problems. My prediction otto will eventually fall flat on his pompous butt but what a ride to get there. Love it.

The reason I will not be reading Superior is the fact that this is not Spider-Man. I read Spider-Man for Peter Parker. I thought we had the new Scarlet-Spider to be the more violent Spider-Man. They may be good stories and a fresh approach, but this is not my Spider-Man.
Not mad at what happened, but not buying either and will be reading Spider-Man when Peter comes back

Sorry killing off superheroes to makes sales is a "so 90's" approach. If Marvel had any guts they would stay committed to "peter dead" and stick with Doc Ock as Spidey (something they shouldn't have done considering they've already rubbed Peter Parker out of the Ultimate Universe) but since as you've stated they set up the safety net for Peter's return this is just another sales gimmick (the kind that angers long time readers/buyers).

@Garrett: You can hate all your want. I hate Marvel for Brand New Day. I REFUSE to read any of the new spider-Man stuff -- nothing makes me angrier than the fact that over a decade of "Peter Parker Being Married" stories have been thrown down the toilet because of the retcon.

I cannot speak for the other fans complaining about this series but, I can speak for myself. I'm upset that Marvel never really committed to Pete being dead, reassuring readers that he's still "alive" in the very next issue. This just seemed like a safety-blanket in the event the book tanked completely. Western comics (as a whole) are too afraid of progression to be truly interesting. Also, the 700th issue of ASM was a waste of $8 when in comparison to issue 600. Sub-par art and side-stories, which is a shame for a supposed "final" issue. Whatever, I'm just "hating," right?
