• Outpowered and outclassed by Terrax, Otto Octavius somehow turns himself into the COSMICALLY POWERED SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN!
•  This may not be enough to defeat Terrax, but if so, is the world ready for an Otto Octavius with this level of power?!

    An action-packed issue that does not hold back. Superior Spider-Man was all ego, but now I'm not so sure. It's one of the only comics where a character's personality is changing as the issues come in. This Spider-Man truly is superior. Read Full Review

    If you were looking for another shallow adventure for Otto Octavius, then you were surely mistaken by the end of Superior Spider-Man #3. This third chapter gave us a pretty clear idea of which version of Otto we are dealing with, and what is now at stake for him setting up shop in San Francisco. Whether it was the endearing character moments, the action, or the clever twists, this series has more than proved its potential as an ongoing. Read Full Review

    Overall, Superior Spider-Man was my ‘Spider book' of the week, moving the story forward in a nice three issue arc that brought some great character moments to the table for both Anna and Otto, while also delivering a satisfying conclusion to the events with Terrax. The art duties handled by Mike Hawthorne add some grittiness to the title, making it stand out from the other Spider books, like Amazing and Miles for example, while adding to the story at hand being told at the same time. Superior Spider-Man seems poised to take Otto into different directions than he was previously headed in his first go around as the character and I'm here for it. Read Full Review

    While it might have been fun to see what Otto could have done with the Power Cosmic, it makes sense for him to gracefully give up the power which would in short order destroy a human body. Still, the door remains open for more cosmic powered shenanigans given Anna's deception. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    This issue isn't particularly strong or groundbreaking, but there's just enough good characterization and interesting moments to make it a decent read. Read Full Review
