Superior Spider-Man, Vol. 1: My Own Worst Enemy (Spider-Man (Graphic Novels))

The Superior Spider-Man, Vol. 1: My Own Worst Enemy - Giuseppe Camuncoli, Dan Slott, Ryan Stegman This is a Spider-Man series that requires a little bit of prior knowledge in the way of having read Spider-Man: Dying Wish to know what The Superior Spider-Man is all about. For those who haven't read it, and those who do not wish to know the spoiler that makes this comic possible, this is your chance to turn around. In Spider-Man: Dying Wish Doc Ock is Spidey's villain, and has come up with the ultimate plan to finally defeat his nemesis. Through the miraculous ways of science, Doc Ock is able to switch minds with Peter Parker, and thus switch their roles in this long going comic. In The Superior Spider-Man, Doc Ock is now Peter Parker and/or Spider-Man and he has vowed to do things different. Forever known to mock Peter's way of taking care of business, Doc Ock knows that his outlook on fighting crime is a little different. He has turned a new page and now wants to live as the Spider-Man but as time goes on, he begins to realize that he will never be Peter unless he fully commits himself to this change. Now all of Doctor Octopus' brilliant work in the fields of science and Spider-Man are credited to Peter Parker and not himself. Really, this series was an outstanding idea from author Dan Slott and gives the series a new look and feel, while still keeping in tact the characters and stories previously woven. I love that Spider-Man is now seemingly ruthless, but even when Doc's evil tendencies attempt to surface, Peter Parker in spirit form is able to keep most of his legacy the same. I really like how Doc Ock uses the powers of Spider-Man for his version of good, which could be considered vengeance, which also gives this series a darker edge. If you're looking for a great new Spidey comic, this is it folks. The Superior Spider-Man is one of the best original twists on a popular character that I've seen, and it provides for some truly entertaining and new adventures with our favorite webslinger.
