• Field Trip! Spider-Man and the X-kids blast into space to take down Deathbird's Brood-Symbiote Imperium!
• Glob Herman's finest hour!
• And the mole's identity revealed! Maybe we should have led with that one!
This series has grown on me rather quickly and this issue easily lives up to my expectations. All the things I love about Spider-Man and the X-Men are on display with issue #5, from humor to characterization to creativity. It's full of clever recombinations of classic Marvel stock. That said, it also lives up to my expectations when it comes to failings. The issue seems far too proud of its 'dad jokes' and isn't aiming for anything higher than the fun and fluffy. The art is strong but Marco Failla seems to be shaking off a few minor cobwebs after a month away. All in All, Spider-Man and the X-Men #5 lacks the spark that the series' jaunt to the Mojoverse possessed, leaving it a really fun but unspectacular issue, hovering somewhere around the middle of this title's offerings.
