Superior Spider-Man #31
Writer: Dan Slot & Christos Gage
Artist:Giuseppe Camuncoli Will Sliney
Dan Slott may still be a terrible person but for a totally different reason this time around. Like many I hated the idea of Otto Octavius being Spider-Man at first. But honestly as the title went on it really grew on me. In fact I feel a little let down I don’t have another year without Peter. I’m sure you’re reading this and yelling “Blasphemy!” but it’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it. Not only is this the final issue but the finale of the Goblin Nation story arc.Otto became overwhelmed and out matched by the Green Goblin and gave Peter his body back. Peter Parker once again Spider-Man gets into his classic costume and quickly realizes he has no idea what the hell has been going on. After some quick updates as to where his love ones are he’s off to take out the Goblins. A lil team-up with 2099 Spider-Man who pissed at first realizes he’s now in the company of the Real Spider-Man, and quickly makes himself ready. The Spider-Men now take to the streets ready to take on the Goblin’s Nation and win back New York.
I really dug the way Dan Slott decided to wrap up the series. In tandem with Christos Gage’s epilogue in the back the story really feels at an end. Camuncoli was the perfect person to bring Peter Parker back to life in the pages. Camuncoli’s facial expressions nail just how emotional this issue gets for everyone as Peter tries to understand just what Otto had been doing while using his body. Never been a huge 2099 Spider-Man fan but I’ve really gotta say Dan Slott has sold me on him in this series. I really enjoy his reasoning for being in the standard 616 and I like his relationships with both Peter and Otto. 2099 Spider-Man with Spider-Man kicking Spiderslayer and Goblin tail was just nothing but everything I ever wanted in a big Spider-Man issue. Of course like all of the Superior Spider-Man series not everyone is gonna enjoy it. But I have(and you can here me rant about it in a soon follow article Superior Spider-Man: The Spider-Man we needed but not the Spider-Man we deserved.)
I stand by what I say in that the series ended before it should have. Dan Slott of course always intended to bring Peter Parker back, whether he admitted it or not. But I can’t help but feel cheated by the fact that the Amazing Spider-Man 2 is about to hit theaters and now we are getting a relaunch of the Amazing Spider-Man. Feels a little close doesn’t it? I mean there was at least another good year of stories out of Otto being Spider-Man and can’t help but feel hoodwinked by the ending of another chapter in Dan Slott’s Spider-Man Saga. Still not as bad as Brand New Day. I’m selfish when I say I wanted to see Humberto Ramos doing the art at some point in this issue. Not Will Sliney, no offense who does the art in the epilogue.
I was quite the fan of the Superior Spider-Man and I’m sad to see it come to an end. It was a wild ride that I simply was always left guessing till the very end and I really loved that about this title. So few superhero on-goings are willing to be weird and unpredictable the way Superior-Spider-Man was. Now that Peter is back maybe the masses who hated the title for no reason can give it a read and see the missed out on some really fun story. The art was amazing. The story was spectacular. The series was superior. See what I did there. I picked it up and you should too. If you haven’t been reading the story please go to your nearest local comic store and grab the trades. Dan Slott will surprise you.
