Review of the Week: Superior Spider-man #7

If you haven't already, check out my reviews for issues 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 6AU. So after last weeks entertaining but rather pointless tie in to the Age of Ultron event, this series is back on track. Issue five teased 'A vs SM', the Avengers finally confronting Ock-Spidey on his, shall we say odd behavior. And this issue gives up....umm...Cardiac.

Most of this issue is a fight between Ock-Spidey and the anti-hero/villain Cardiac. Mind you, I don't dislike Cardiac, but this really isn't what we were promised is it. The fight with Cardiac basically just serves to show how far back down the violent asshole hill Ock has slid since taking over Peter's body. He is about ready to kill Cardiac, a guy who's barely a villain.

Finally towards the end we get the Avengers confronting Ock-Spidey, demanding he submit to a physical to prove he really is Spider-man. Ock-Spidey tells them where they can stick that idea and pimp slaps Captain America, calling him a "flag waving fool". And in the last page the Avengers are about ready to curb stomp Ock-Spidey.

This issue felt mostly like filler. We see that Peter is gaining little bits of control back, and we see how Ock is falling back into his old ways, but we don't yet get the confrontation the cover promised. All and all though this is still a great series and this was a decent issue. Can't wait for issue #8.
