    All in all this was a good sendoff to Doc Ock despite being a little confusing near the end. If you have read Superior Spider-man, but still want another Superior story before moving to Amazing then this comic is for you. Even if you haven't read the previous issues, you can still tell what's going on and enjoy it from start to finish. It's a good last story to Doc Ock and a good end to this series.Farewell Superior Spider-man Team-Up. You'll be missed. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Man Team Up #12 not only gives an insightful flashback into Otto Octavius' past, it also serves as a swan song to the entire Superior era. The art by Frenz/Buscema is creative, iconic and engaging. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a worthy send-off to whatever the series became during the "Superior" run. It's a high quality story on its own, but it's also a story about second chances, including the second chance at life and redemption that Dr. Octopus had, and the second chance at life that Peter Parker is getting.

    This final arc has done a decent job of fleshing out the rivalry between Otto and Norman Osborn, striking a distinctly old-school feel to reflect the fact that writer Kevin Shinick is touching on older Spider-Man stories. Read Full Review

    While not necessarily impactful to the review itself, I couldn't help but notice that the cover to "Superior Spider-Man Team-Up" #12 is printed on stock is inferior to the interior pages of the issue. Barring financials, I'm not sure what motivated this choice, as it is one more signature of paper per copy, but I'd think the premium priced comic books would also have slightly more rugged packaging. All in all, "Superior Spider-Man Team-Up" #12 has some nice moments, some decent art, but an otherwise forgettable story. Just as Octavius fades off in this issue, so does the issue, taking the series with it. Read Full Review
