Marvel Comic Universe & Superior Spider-Man #1 Spoilers & Review: Spider-Geddon Fallout Continues As Doctor Octopus In A Peter Parker Amazing Spider-Man Body Gets A New Lease On Life?

Marvel Comic Universe and Superior Spider-Man #1 Spoilers and Review follows.

Spider-Geddon Fallout Continues As Doctor Octopus In A Peter Parker Amazing Spider-Man Body Gets A New Lease On Life?

The book opens with a storyline catch-up and creators’ credits page.

We then meet Professor Tolliver…

…and get a sense of views and cult of personality on the West Coast at Horizon University. We also meet a few other characters including the dimunitive Anna Maria who, if I remember correctly, was a pass love interest of Doctor Otto Octavius.

We then get a further recap of Doctor Octopu’s past and journet to being Professor Tolliver and the Superior Spider-Man.

It is convoluted, but Marvel recognized this history…

…needed more than a high-level blurb on the credits’ page.

The book ends with Anna Maria exposing Professor Tolliver, but…

…the cosmic threat of Terraz arrives in Sam Francisco and…

…Anna Maria / Tolliver relationship becomes a simmering subplot…

…leading into Superior Spider-Man #2.

The Pulse:

The complex and convoluted history of Doctor Octopus’s journey to becoming the Superior Spider-Man is explained in a surprisingly entertaining, accessible and speedy way so that readers can focus on his new beginning on the West Coast. Decent art to service the story. A fun read. 7 out of 10.
