Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #8 - Failure To Reform!
Has the Superior Spider-Man been humbled? How can he come back from this?
With the help of a guest-star even more arrogant than Spider-Man... THE SUB-MARINER!
The Sub-MarinerThis was okay. I mean Namor isn't a favorite of mine but it was interesting to see Ock deal with the same doubts that Peter often did.
I have no idea where this war is taking place since I don’t think Namor or Panther have a solo book now (plus aren’t they teammates in New Avengers?), but I don’t care either. Although I will call it now that clearly Dr. Doom is the one manipulating the war since he has a lot of history with Namor and I’m fairly sure there was some limited series a few years ago where Latveria went to war with Wakanda; plus Ock said he had never seen technology this advanced when he deactivated the robots which is a dead-ringer for Doom.
My biggest quibble with this book is the cover has nothing to do with the story. It’s a nice cover too. But if someone bought this book because they wanted to see Spidey and Namor fight a red kraken they’d be sorely disappointed. I know in this day and age most covers are just generic pin-ups of the hero, but this goes a step further in that the cover is kind of misleading. Just my 2-cents and something that would have annoyed me if I had impulse bought this book based on the cover; which is not a totally unprecedented shopping decision.
