August 14, 2012 - TAKING them OUT!
Both are disappointments
But Spidey is going somewhere, at least.
Facing his darkest side
It's too bad that this concept comes at this point in the comic's run. If it had been earlier, it might have been believable. Later, and I would have felt more for it. Here, it seems pretty silly. I like the fact that Gayle becomes more of an attacking person - she isn't just some dumb girl, as my wife would say.
But the story is painfully bad - like locking a God in a closet bad. I kept thinking of when the Super Friends used to get Mister Mxyzptlk to say his name backward to lock him in another dimension - and it always seemed hokey. This falls in that category. The cover isn't representative of any scene really, either.
Nice to see him lose it a bit.
Sometimes - even a guy as perfect as Peter Parker has to let loose a little - and really kick some.... tail.
That's what happens here. By a silly set of coincidences, Peter is set up to attack Doc Ock's men, and goes on a city rampage of messy destruction. Spider-Man's reputation would have been tarnished for certain if this was real.
Not a great issue - it suffers from a bit of decompression.
It does, however, have the cliffhanger ending leading us into the next issue.
The cover is fine - but I do generally hate those inserted circles from other scenarios.
Wish there had been a bit more REAL conclict.
