It's the sensational Spider-Man versus the horrendous hordes of Hydra as the villainous organization makes its final push to seize control of the country! Standing in the way? Everyone's favorite wall-crawler. But will Spidey have enough left in the tank to take out the group of terrorists and save the day?

    DROP BENDIS FROM THE MAIN AVENGERS TITLE SHARPISH, THEN GIVE STRACZYNSKI A BIG FAT BUNDLE OF CASH AND LET HIM WRITE IT INSTEAD, BECAUSE HE UNDERSTANDS HOW THE CHARACTERS WORK IN A WAY THAT BENDIS CAN ONLY DREAM OF. Read Full Review

    Unlike Bendiss New Avengers, which often relegates Spider-Man to a supporting role of comic relief, this book places Spidey centre stage, playing an active central role in a battle which is bigger than the sort of street-level villainy he usually takes on. As such, its a perfect plot to use to introduce the new status quo of Spider-Man as an Avenger, as well as giving Marvel the chance to cement its continuity and JMS the chance to redeem himself somewhat for his mixed record on the title over the last few years. This is unashamedly fun, exciting old-school superheroism, and anyone whos a fan of Silver Age comics or Spider-Man in general should check it out..., they wont be disappointed. Read Full Review
