Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Superior Spider-Man #1.

I didn't know Marvel Comics published one-and-dones any more. And yet, that's what Dan Slott delivered here -- a story that finishes in a single issue. The Sinister Six are making some noise. Spider-Ock has to defeat them, and he goes about it in a very un-Peter Parker-like way.

Slott also explores some of the larger issues raised by "Dying Wish," particularly how different Otto Octavius is from Peter Parker psychologically, and I suspect that if Otto continues to act the way he does here that the people who have known Peter are going to suspect that there's something very wrong.

All in all, I liked it.
