Scarlet Spider #5
- first issue to really underwhelm me. Again, I've yet to read Spider Island, so Kaine can talk to spiders? Is this new or was that revealed in Spider Island? As soon as I read that it was a jump the shark moment. I may bail on this title. Then the ending with punching the bomb and yanking random wires--bingo it disarms. Cause a guy as dedicated to setting off a nuke would surely allow for such a happenstance maneuver to happen. I know it's fiction but disarming a bomb(a trope seen countless times) is never that intentionally easy. The "real" stuff has to be played more straight even in fiction.
