In the Avenging Spider-Man series, by Marvel Comics, Superior Spider-Man teams up with a character or team in every issue. In this issue he teams up with The Mighty Thor, God of Thunder, in a battle against Electro.
Electro has found a way to return to Earth, after being shot into space by Thor. Superior Spider-Man warns Thor of Electro’s return, and that he may be returning to seek vengeance against Thor. An arrogant Thor laughs and takes the warning lightheartedly.
An angered Spider-Man sought out Electro and learned of his plans to destroy Thor. He tried to warn Thor a second time, but Thor brushed him off again. But not for long. Electro appears and the battle begins.
I started reading this series at issue #16 because of the debut of Superior Spider-Man. And he is no different from the way he is in the Superior Spider-Man series. His true identity (Otto Octavius) is not known. There is a panel where Superior Spider-Man told Thor to remove his hand from his shoulder, and Thor was astonished.
Avenging Spider-Man is written by Christopher Yost. Well-written script and I especially like the interactions between Superior Spider-Man and Thor. They’re both funny, but Spider-Man is funny AND serious at the same time.
I like the artwork. Marco Checchetto is the artist, and Rachelle Rosenberg is the colorist. I really like the colors in the fight scenes. There’s a panel where the lighting is so bright, I almost had to squint to look at it. I especially like that one!
So far I am liking what I’m reading so I plan to continue to read this Marvel title.
VERDICT (drum roll please)
I recommend this series. If you’re a reader of Superior Spider-Man, hopefully you are already reading Avenging Spider-Man.
