Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #5 (Marvel)


Rating: 4/5 – An evil version of Spider-Man and his amazing friends.

I have to start by saying I love the Doc Ock as Spidey saga.  Everything he does is just interesting making Spider-Man an anti-hero.  He is doing good but in such a bad way.  Minions, spy-bots, and now, the Sinister Six?

For months, Spidey has been capturing members of his old team and this issue finally lets us see why.  The Wrecking Crew is trashing the newly formed Alchmax Corporation to steal some new technology.  And as many know, the Wrecking Crew is no pushover, as they are infused with Asgardian Magic.  And before the recently time-trapped Spider-Man 2099 can leap into action, the “real” Spider-Man appears with his new team, the very same Sinister Six!

This is a fun ride as we see Spidey controlling his new allies and the Wrecking Crew completely confused.  It’s also great to see the two Superior titles working together as stories are blending between the titles.

First the art is very good for a supplemental book.  Marco Checchetto is very under-rated as an artist and I think he could pull his weight on any big book, not just Punisher or the other Spider-Man title.  And Chris Yost does a great job scripting as he has done so many times in the past.

I know there have been a lot of Spider-books out recently.  And when this happens, we sometimes get a lot of garbage.  Thankfully, this title is still on par with the main title and is just as interesting.  If you like the regular book, this issue is a must have.
