4.0 out of 5 stars The web tightens 15 Feb 2014
By No More Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The story running through issues #11-16 of the Superior Spider-Man is collected as Superior Spider-Man: No Escape. This consists of two three-part stories, though they flow into one-another, and sub-plots continue to weave through them, but the ‘big’ stories neatly divide into two. The scripting is the usual excellent standard, as is the artwork, so if you have been enjoying this series, you will continue to do so – though the absence of the ‘ghost’ does mean that Otto’s internal monologues are now starting to grate a bit. Fortunately, by the end of the book, MJ, Carlie and The Wraith are starting to get the bigger picture…

THE SPOILER ZONE
The first story – ‘No Escape’ - involves Spider-Man, Jonah Jameson, and the execution of the Spider-Slayer. The official execution, that is, as he is scheduled to be executed as the last official act before the Raft is closed down. Naturally, he has a plan, and even more naturally, Spider-man has thought of everything. Well, not quite everything, and the swarms of mini-Spider-Slayers and mini-Spider-Bots battle it out, Smythe releases the last few villains still held on the Raft – the Scorpion, the Vulture, and the Lizard. Well, dear reader, we know there are only two villains there, and guess which one gets a ride home in the Mayoral helicopter afterwards… Ditko wouldn’t approve, of course, but it is what Stan would have wanted. Jameson insists the execution is carried out, by whatever means possible; and Spider-Man obliges, but keeps a recording of the conversation… and is given the decommissioned Raft as a new secret base.

By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The third volume in the utterly brilliant Superior Spider-man is yet another winner from Dan Slott and his cadre of super-talented artist collaborators. Comprising two 3-issue arcs, both storylines are amazing in different ways but share an originality and freshness that permeates this series.

In the first story arc, Spider Slayer is to be the last prisoner in The Raft, the island prison off of Manhattan, to be executed by the state. His crime: murdering J. Jonah Jameson's wife. Jameson asks Spider-Man to join him on the day of execution to ensure the death penalty is carried out and, of course, things don't go the way he planned. As well as Spider Slayer, fellow prisoners Boomerang, the Vulture, and Scorpion also run riot, enhanced by Slayer's mini-robots.

There are so many details about this story that I loved, but, importantly, I really enjoyed the story itself. Spider-Man anticipating Slayer's escape and his spider-bots going toe-to-toe against Slayer's spider-bots was really fun, and seeing Jameson get in on the action himself was great - and he holds his own too! I won't say how it plays out but it is handled superbly with Slayer thinking he has the upper hand because he knows what Spider-Man would do - except this is Otto the Superior Spider-Man and he's constantly surprised by new Spidey's choices, as are we as readers.

The Raft was meant to close but because of something Jameson says to Spider-Man during the escape attempt, Spider-Man's able to take The Raft as his own private lair. It's brilliant how Otto has adapted to the role of superhero but still has the mentality of a supervillain, getting a lair, building his robots, even acquiring henchmen (called "Spiderlings"!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Spiderman goes to war 19 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback
There may be spoilers ahead...

Dan Slott continues to deliver his amazing (no pun intended) run in this new era of Spiderman. With Peter Parker's mind finally eradicated from him (Superior Spider-Man - Volume 2: A Troubled Mind (Marvel Now), Otto Octavius carries on his crime-fighting spree as the Superior Spiderman, with devastating effect.

But first, a visit to the Raft - the off-shore prison for super criminals, is in order. At the request of Mayor Jameson, Spiderman visits the raft to oversee the Spider Slayer's execution. Obviously, a breakout is staged, but Spidey has everything covered (having been a prisoner himself as Dr Octopus) until Spider Slayer upgrades a few other inmates, causing a touch of mayhem and carnage on the island prison. The Vulture, Scorpion, Boomerang and Lizard all come into play as Spidey deploys all his wits and tricks to resume normality and protect the mayor and other civilians.

Once mission is accomplished, Spiderman tricks the mayor (with some gentle blackmail) into allowing him in keeping the Raft for himself, using it as a base of operations to wage his war on crime, calling it Spider Island Two! This is where the first story arc finishes and we head into issue 14 which has Spidey leading a small army into the Kingpin's Shadowland stronghold to clean it up once and for all. Seemingly successful, the story then moves into Goblin territory and begins a new arc that continues well into Volume 4 and possibly beyond.

Marvel took a bold step when they killed off Peter Parker and put Otto Octavius into the body of Spiderman. The fans have been divided on this since issue 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's no escape from the goodness that is Superior Spider-Man. 12 Dec 2013
By John Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The solicit info is slightly off, this also includes Superior Spidey # 16.

Anyhow... Dan Slott is weaving his magic, the story of SpOck keeps building, while the blocks are being put together, we start to see the tiniest of chinks in Spidey's armor, and the excitement continues. Giuseppe Camuncoli and Humberto Ramos and the rest of the art team are really lighting it up on the art front. Superior Spider-Man is some of the best Spidey I've ever had the pleasure of reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Spider-Man with Henchmen May Actually Be Superior 8 Jan 2014
By Matt Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love this title so much! It is not only full of action-packed, Spidey adventures, it is laugh out loud funny. I am a huge Peter Parker fan, but Doc Ock is so, so good in this role. The opening story with the Spider Slayer showed again that Otto may actually be a superior Spider-Man to Peter. I am in no way endorsing capital punishment carried out by superheroes, but Doc Ock seems to be very good at getting the job done for the greater good. Because he was a former supervillain, he is continually one step ahead of the villains that he encounters.

Taking over the raft, and turning it into his new headquarters (Spider Island 2) was a genius move, and hiring Spiderlings as his "henchmen" was so hilariously enjoyable for me to read. His robots, the Aracnaughts, help make the Superior Spider-Man a legitimate military force. I could go on and an on about how much I like the new Spider-Man. For example, his new costume is super cool, and the advanced technology that he uses to fight crime truly makes him superior to the Amazing Spider-Man. If Peter Parker ever finds a way to make a return as the Amazing Spider-Man, I honestly want Doc Ock to continue as the Superior Spider-Man. In a lot of ways, I want Peter to stay dead, because this title is just too good. Thank you, Dan Slott.

Other quick notes:

-Taking down the Kingpin had to be done. Otto did the right thing, although it is possible this will escalate the violence.

-I like this version of Hobgoblin, but seeing him take over as the Goblin Knight may be fun too. I'm optimistic about this.

-I'm not convinced that the Goblin King is Norman Osbourne, but I could be wrong. Either way, we are heading towards a huge war against the goblins.

-The Lizard is a good guy now? This can't be forever.

-There is a nerd character that is really mad and powerful. I don't know who he is, but he seems important.

-Carlie seems to have things figured out about "Peter" not being himself, but I don't want her to solve the mystery. She is being aided in her investigation by Wraith. Again, I have no idea who this character is, or her importance.

-Norah got fired. What will they do with the character now?

By Michael Jordan - Published on Amazon.com

I love what they have done so far with Superior Spider-Man. I love watching Otto try to be a hero in his own way, also the dynamic between him and the supporting cast is great to see. Can't wait for the next trade.
