It’s well worth a listen for some interesting reflections on what this latest turn of events means for the Spider-Man franchise, but be warned: it contains major spoilers, so don’t listen until you’ve read this issue.
For my part, I’ve come round 180 degrees. I was pretty put out by what happened in ASM #700, but this first issue of Superior Spider-Man fills me with hope.
There are some great opportunities for challenging stories, so I’m looking forward to what materialises in the months to come. “Spidey’s” interactions with the X-Men alone set the scene for what comes next.
In a word? Tension. Lots of tension.
Questions? What about Mary-Jane? What about the Avengers? And the Marvel Universe is crawling with psychics and telepaths. How long can he keep this up for?
I’ll say no more…for now.
