Issue 12 was fantastic. This title is my most anticipated comic every month. I can't wait to see how Octo-Spidey resolves the Smythe problem. I hope it's brutal

That cliffhanger. I honestly don't know what's gonna happen.

SpOck says he doesn't care about all the people that could die from Vulture, or Jameson getting killed by Scorpion. He's just jonesing for Smythe-shishkabob.

It is interesting how Otto seems to have taken a personal disliking to Smythe. I dont see this ending well for the Spider-Slayer.

So I have a question. Since Ock wiped out the remnants of Peter from his brain, what exactly is his motivation now? Without Peter in the back of his head, seemingly his need to live up to the responsibility of his power is gone, too.

Why didn't he go back to villainy with Peter's body and powers?

I assume he still feels the need to prove himself superior to Peter.

I notice he still seems to remember things that happened before the mind wipe, such as Morbius exhuming Billy Connors for DNA samples.

Aloha,
Who says he ever left? Check out Alpha, and you'll see that the reason he restored his powers
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
was to see if it would be easy to transfer them to himself.
Also check all of the Sinister Six that he seems to be collecting for some future purpose.
SpOck sees himself as superior to all.He could never prove that absolutely as Doc Ock, but as Spidey he's got the brains of Ock and Peter and the power of Spidey. It's addicting for one thing.It also fits into his very warped sense of revenge.
I'll be honest with you. While I really enjoy this whole concept, it's getting harder and harder for me to look forward to the next issue of anything Superior, only because it represents Ock screwing up Peter's life big time.

I read the first issue out of curiosity and dropped it without a second thought. I didn't like the idea of Alpha in the first place, but I thought his mini might turn it around for me. It didn't.

Well wasn't that kind of the point of him? He's what Peter gone wrong could've been.

Seems like a valid point to me. Does Alpha become meaningless next to Sp-Ock?

Since all of the Upgrades are controlled by Smythe, I assume he's going after Smythe and once he's defeated/killed, Scorpion, Boomerang and Vulture will automatically lose their Upgrades...

Alpha fits into Superior Spider-Man continuity, that's the main reason I checked it out. SpOck gave him back his powers as part of his Master Plan.I'm not a big fan but I know he will turn up again.I give his mini series a C+!

Just finished reading issue 13. It seems that SpOck is indeed preparing for War. Can't wait till the next issue.

A turn? It's been pretty great the whole time. Whether you like the idea of Ock in Spidey's body or not, the execution of this idea has been fantastic.

Finally Slott found his niche. I hated Brand New Day and I disliked Slott's take on Peter Parker because he wrote him as immature and kinda hipster-ish. But I'm man enough to admit that Superior, besides a couple of shaky early issues, has been a fantastic run. I'm officially picking up Spidey monthly again after many years and I'm dreading the inevitable return of man-child Parker.

I subscribed to Superior several months ago and every time the new issue comes out I finally receive the previous one...hurry up Marvel! Currently its the only comic I'm reading, my money is so low right now I could no longer afford the 10+ other titles I was reading. Like Scarlet Spider and Venom.

Oh no, I've been reading this series from the beginning and it's been plain excellent the whole way through, it's just that this particular arc is REALLY great, you know? That's what I really meant.

I'm looking forward to the Superior/Black Cat story in October. I totally forgot about her.

And yes, since Dying Wish, it has been a very fun ride. I still want Peter back one day once all the opportunities with Ock have been exhausted.

Heck, I think it's been a fun ride since Slott tool over with Big Time! But, yes, obviously I want Pete back eventually.

In the meantime, I look forward to seeing Spidey with his minions!

Finally read yesterday's issue. Fantastic stuff.

I think what excites me most about Superior is to see what comes after. Once Pete is inevitably back in the red and blues, how is he going to react? Ock is doing just as much good stuff as he is bad. Even the bad stuff, the killing, seems to be fairly justified.

This is a good time for the Spidey books.
