The Superior Spider-Man, Vol. 2: A Troubled Mind

The Superior Spider-Man, Vol. 2: A Troubled Mind - Dan Slott, Ryan Stegman, Humberto Ramos 6 - After they humiliate Mayor Jameson, Spidey goes after Jester and Screwball. Meanwhile, the Avengers are beginning to suspect all is not well in Spider-land.

I love watching Otto adjust to Peter's life in his pompous way. Peter spouting super-villain dialogue is also pretty awesome. Also, Slott does a great job at showing how dangerous Spider-Man can be without a moral compass.

7 - Spider-Otto deals with Cardiac and the Avengers have a talk with him.

Wow, talk about cliffhanger endings. I'm dying to see how things pan out with the Avengers and Cardiac. And Anna Marie, for that matter.

8 - Carlie Cooper knows it's not Peter in control of Spider-Man but needs proof! Also, Spidey takes on the Avengers and settles things with Cardiac!

The saga of Spider-Otto continues. The bit with Pinkie Penguin near the end nearly loosed a man tear from me. Also, Peter's attempt to warn the Avengers was kind of heartbreaking when it failed.

9 - Otto attempts to eradicate the little bit of Peter Parker contained within his brain.

The battle between Otto and Peter inside Spidey's head was pretty brutal. Is Peter gone forever? I'll pretend I think so.

10 - Carlie tries to convince the chief that something is up with Spidey. Meanwhile, Peter enjoys some quality time with Anna Marie and the Green Goblin hacks Spidey's network.

The looming showdown between Octo-Spider and the Green Goblin is going to be epic! I love what's going on with Peter and Anna Marie.

Closing Thoughts: Dan Slott delivers the goods once again. I can't say enough good things about the Superior Spider-Man. Four out of five stars.
