The Spider-man/Red Hulk storyline takes up the first three issues and is unfortunately the worst of the bunch. Mayor Jameson gets captured by some moloids and is dragged beneath New York City where it turns out Moleman has been usurped by a whole new group of tough guy monsters who have enslaved the moloids. Middle middle middle, Spider-man saves the day in a jokey way. I won't go into plot particulars but this really didn't need to be three issues given the sparse content. Plus Red Hulk is kind of a dick so the less I see of him, the better.
The Hawkeye story is strangely sad. Hawkeye's deeply insecure being a non-super-powered human on a team of gods, monsters, and assorted super-powered heroes so spends all of his time practicing on being the best shot in the world. Spidey does something nice for him at the end despite Hawkeye being kind of a dick himself, overcompensating on confidence because he's not confident. It's an ok story I guess...
The best story in the book is Spidey/Captain America. Spidey finds out that Cap, before he became Cap and was still weedy Steve Rogers, wanted to be a comics illustrator. Spidey tries to get Cap back into it so the two can come up with characters and start making comics together for a lark. This was the best story because it does a lot of things in a short space.Read more ›
With the classic 'Avengers' team, as well as a few others, Avenging Spider-Man holds a strong story and unique cartoon style, it is deep and shallow at all the right places, staying true to the links and characters that many of us know and love from the Amazing Spider-Man comics, cartoons and films.
An enjoyable read, I look forward to the next instalment, not too far away now!
