The Inferior Spider-Man!
hey There, as you Might Know, Something Happens in issue 9 of superior Spider-man, Something that will change everything, and it does , but is that change good? most definitively Not! What happens in this issue, made me, someone who has from the beginning been Okay with superior, almost vomit. I'll be honest, from the start i haven't been that mad since we all knew that spider-man( peter parker) would eventually return, I made this Very clear from my very first Review, but right now? i take back everything good i ever said about superior, EVERYTHING.
There are Two reason why this issue got one star, one being the fact that the new CV doesn't let me grade a comic book below than One, in fact i can't even give it a half star anymore. The Second reason is that despite the abominable writing, the art was Very good, i love stegmans work here, which is the only thing that kept me through to the end.
One of the many things that Allowed me to cope with superior was the fact that Ock was much more irresponsible with the power, and he was not the true hero we all knew and loved, but all that was destroyed here. Let me elaborate.
Ock Enters peters Brain to finely get rid of the ghost phantom spider-man who has been influencing his actions. ock figures out that the only way to get rid of peter Parker, is to erase his early life completely. Ock, not only defeats peter in his own mind, he humiliates him. Now don't get me wrong, this could have been a good thing, i mean, last weak flash/venom, got completely decimated by Toxin, and it was bloody awesome, but the setting was different there, and it's different here. Look i knew otto was going to win, i really did, i mean, every solicicts showed that spider-man was no longer peter anyways so what should have i expected? but if only that was the only problem.
Not only that, but in this issue, slott makes it so that otto, is more worthy of being spider-man than peter parker, and why is that? because peter parker is the bets hero in the universe of course, why else wouldn't he be worthy of being spider-man? because otto kills, and makes others safe by doing so, he is THEREFORE SOMEHOW more responsible than peter parker, who in case you didn't know, is the greatest hero in the marvel universe.
And To add insult to injury, slott does something that basically makes peter parker a jerk and an a$$. Honestly, i would forgive all of what i've stated above , but this was simply unforgivable. So Peter Parker, the greatest hero in the MU, risks a little girls life to save himself, yes, you hear me right. In the previous issue, Pete tried to interfere with otto when he was operating on the sick little girl, because he thought otto could have discovered him, therefore, in order not to risk his own hide, peter, the greatest hero in the marvel universe, someone who has risked his life a billion ties, was too worried about himself too even consider that the little girl could have died...
This was horrible and simply painful, it hurt me, mentally and physically. I'm not going to hate slott, i'm not going to go on random threads and insult him, i'm just gonna stop buying superior, because it's terrible, and any spider-man fan should realize that. and i don't want peter to be perfect boy scout either, but this was simply just CIS to it's maximum, and spider-man Might never heal from this, hope he does though.
