I liked this issue as well. I admit, I'm not the biggest Spock fan. I am happy to see him stepping into the hero role more firmly, but I'm still missing the humor element that (for me) made spidey my favorite hero/on-going. What I'm hoping is that, with all the stuff that will go on in issue #9, some how their minds/personalities meld. Having the combination of the two (Ock's genius, tenacity, and confidence [well, for Ock it's probably more narcissism] and Peter's humor, morality, and social skills) would be awesome. THAT would really be a superior spider-man. Not a humorless douche...:), but Spock is growing on me bit by bit. Good issue. Also, I really love Ramos' art.

Why do Marvel keep doing this,

I know some will disagree, but to me this is just another slap to the face of Peter Parker, who to me will always be the one and only Spider-man.

and

I am losing all respect for Marvel, because I feel they are ruining Spider-man and they are treating him as if he never represented anything worthwhile.

When I was younger I saw Peter as someone I could relate to, but this Peter/Spider-man I don't recognise at all and it feels all Marvel did was to basically destroy anything I felt for the character.

Preach! I am quickly losing interest in SSM. I don't want to read about how big of a jerk Spock is any longer. I tired it out and have been sticking it out, but I'm really unhappy with the current state of spider-man books. I'm looking to re-evaluate things after issue 9...

I love spider-man. Love him. He's my favorite character, but I am quickly losing interest in this chapter in the character's development. I'm bored. Bring back Peter.

So, that Rulk / TM exchange... did Task Master die? I couldn't tell...

yeah, i see some rib cage action going on there. I disagree about the 2/5 rating. I'd give it a 3/5. Not an amazing issue by any means, but certainly not that bad. just my opinion, but I actually like this story so far. Is it perfect? No. Sure, Spidey is clearly peter (which i'm not sure why everyone is complaining...sure it breaks continuity, but I'm frankly getting sick of spock) and some elements aren't hanging together, but i'm entertained. Sorry so many of you are disappointed with the story :(

I'm really sad to say this, but I'm really bored with spider-man now. And he is my all-time favorite superhero. I'm just sick of spock to be honest. I'm ready for this to be over. Bring back Peter and let's move on to something fun again.Unrelated I know, but I just finished SSM6 and needed to vent.

Glad to hear Cardiac is back, though :)

Sadly, you can see Michaelangelo is not here. Guess that means I need to head back to the store and pick up another set!

Lego doesn't have a single set of TMNT that contains all 4 turtles. That's pretty shifty. Besides that, the only TMNT set that looks appealing to me is the Shellraiser set, the rest don't offer much in terms of TMNT stuff. A set for the boxcar and all 4 turtles would have been the best.

Lego does that with all their sets for the most part. They did the same thing with the Avengers Legos. But, if you think about it, they're really only doing it so you have to spend more money if you want all of the mini figs. I agree, it is totally lame. I just bought the little one with Michelangelo. And that one is way too expensive for what you get ($13 for that one, and the $20 sets have many more pieces).

I think Pete wins this one. Unless I'm forgetting something, scott doesn't have the feats Peter does. Even with self-respect, I don't think Scott would take it seriously enough (why are they fighting?). I'm pretty sure Peter would crush him.

I highly doubt this will happen. That wouldn't really fit with the story Snyder is telling.

I don't know if this is kosher, but I'm going with a character from ultimate spider-man. I really want to see more of Kong. I don't think we've seen him since he ran away with Kitty and we didn't get much more than a passing mention of him (much like other Ultimate characters...WHO IS THAT DUDE CARRYING AWAY DOCTOR STRANGE IN ULTIMATUM?!...I digress). Kong was a fun character and really started to become a welcome addition to cast of Ultimate Spider-Man. Ideally, I;d like to see Kong and kitty stay together in a "what if: Ultimate Peter Parker didn't die" mini-series, but I'm sure Bendis could also work him in to the current narrative for Miles as well. Anyway, my vote it for Kong.

to do what? make him even more of an a douchebag

HA! nice. but seriously, there is plenty going on inside of spider-man's head right now that adding the symbiote would be overkill.
