    Brace yourselves for another filler issue without the regular Superior Foes team at the helm. As with issue #10, this standalone issue and its vignettes retain the same general appeal of the series and its focus on lovable, D-List villains. Read Full Review

    Superior Foes of Spider-Man once again offers no sightings of Boomerang or the Shocker, but it is always fan to catchup with the Grizzly and Looter. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - David Staniusz Apr 10, 2014

    It was difficult to think of any reason this story exists. Fans of the series could skip this issue as it truly defines filler, its pretty fine in its own right, but this series is not used to mediocrity. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Apr 9, 2014

    SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN #11 offers a nice set of visuals and ends on a strong note, but aside from featuring non-A-list villains, it doesn't really feel like another chapter of the book. The overflowing creative humor and feeling of originality just doesn't have a strong enough presence in this one. It's an amusing character study of a villain's mentality, but when all is said and done, you probably won't be able to shake the feeling this is ultimately a filler issue that just doesn't pack the same kind of brilliant punch as Nick Spencer and Lieber's issues.

    To say that "Superior Foes of Spider-Man" #11 is a disappointment would be a gross overstatement, but the quality of this issue relative to the series takes a dip while the cost took a hike. This is, quite simply, a decent fill-in issue, but ultimately forgettable, just as Grizzly and Looter were largely forgotten prior to their appearance here. That's not to say that fill-in issues with not-so-superior foes taking a spin in the spotlight couldn't work, it's just a lot to overcome at one time. Had the price increase come with the standard team of Spencer and Lieber in place and the usual roster of miscreants between the covers, it might not have been as troublesome. I'm looking forward to a return to the norm for this title next issue, price increase or no. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Apr 13, 2014

    Let's put it this way, these stories would probably make decent back-ups for the regular creative team, further exploring the concepts of the main title and providing a showcase for some fun old characters, but I'm not sure that everyone would want to pay an extra dollar for one of these. If that's the case, who's jumping to buy two of them for more than we pay for the amazing series we're used to? Read Full Review

    I get where the creators were going with this story, to show a different side of the Superior Spider Man. Is he really superior? More like flawed, he's not the web head you know and have grown to love over the decades. I thought it was an interesting take on the story, but not needed. This issue could never have existed and the reader would not have missed any continuing story plot. I think as we (hopefully) get closer to Parker's return, we are going to see more books like this one.
