kfhrfdu_89_76k's The Amazing Spider-Man #92 - When Iceman Attacks review

When Iceman makes a guest appearance!

Hello! This is my 23. CV-review. Okay, let`s get cracking.

Bit about the plot.

In this issue, Spider-man defeats Bullit with help from Iceman, J. Jonah Jameson and Robbie Robertson.

What I like.

The creative team is as spectacular as it has been in the past.

I must say that I have always thought hero vs. hero battles to be dull and cool at the same time. But I must also confess that I think it`s nice that they got Spidey and Iceman to battle against eachother.

Jameson is portrayed as a sensible man. I always like when he is portrayed as a normal guy and not-so-normal-guy at the same time. Which means that I like the 70`s version more than the 60`s version.

Bullit gets what he deserves.

This is a jam packed issue.

What I don`t like.

In this story, Spidey acts like a jerk, to do something noble. This is something that alot of heroes sometimes do, and I think that it`s so stupid that it`s funny. Seriously, in most cases, making someone hate them really dosn`t do them any good. In worst cases, that someone gets really pissed and tries to kill them. Besides, if it`s a good person they`re acting out to, they will eventually notice that they aren`t the bad guys (or gals). So, it has no positive effect in most cases. And that`s why, whenever I see something like that in a comic, I`m thinking something like: "Again? Sigh..." So, no points of that, even if thinking about the preposterousness of that scene makes me smile a bit.

Do you like abrupt endings? If you do, the ending of this ish wont bother you. But it does bother me.

This ish is as full of boring clichés as a Stan Lee as a collaborator comic can be. But at least those clichés are so common, that it feels natural that they are in the story, meaning that they aren`t that much of a bother.

To conclude...

It`s the ending of a story that started many issues ago, so if you want to finish a storyline, you should read this (alot of things are left unresolved though, so if you want to find out what happens to those, you should read the next issues too).
