Review of the week: Superior Spider-man #1

So it's finally here, Superior Spider-man #1. And it was pretty damn good. As we all know by now Doc Ock switched minds with Peter Parker and Peter seemingly died in Doc Ock's body. So now Ock is Spider-man and he is determined to be a better Spider-man then Peter and in a lot of ways he is. He uses his head more then Peter, has come up with better gadgets, and even fights a little bit more efficiently then Peter used to.

This issue revolves around Ock-Spidey fighting the new Sinister Six which is comprised of Boomerang, Shocker, Overdrive who is driving Big Wheel, a new Beetle, and the Living Brain. During the initial fight Ock-Spidey captures and disables the Living Brain and asks to the cop to have it delivered to Horizon Labs where his associate Peter Parker can examine it. And check out what Ock-Peter wears while working.
Loving the mad scientist look there. So after a date with MJ, Ock-Spidey manages to set a trap for the new Sinister Six. At the end of the fight Ock-Spidey is about to kill Boomerang when something stops him. And that something is, just like I called it in my Amazing Spider-man #700 review, Peter Parker still alive in the back of Ock-Spidey's mind.
I'm really enjoying where things are going here. The little moments were also great, when Ock-Spidey first encounters the new Sinister Six he says "Well, I guess they're letting ANYONE call themselves the Sinister Six these days." All and all I gotta say, this is a series that lives up to the hype. I totally recommend it.
