Aaron seems to revel in the inherent insanity of this premise, and never holds back from pushing the craziness of his concepts to the limit. This is a comic in which the power of the Phoenix Force can be channeled into a single bullet, where a new Devil Dinosaur parades the ruins of New York City while Spider-Man and Wolverine bicker about how to stop a mechanical asteroid possessed by the consciousness of Victor Von Doom from destroying the world.

This second issue isn't quite as much fun as issue one, and gets a little too wordy when it comes to Spider-Man's narration, but it's still a blast. Read Full Review
