** spoiler alert ** In Double Trouble Brian Michael Bendis tells the stories of two of Spider-Man's villains. In my memory both of them were ridiculous. Doctor Octopus - 4 metal arms attached to a band around his waist, green jumpsuit, and goggles. Really? That isn't silly? And Kraven the Hunter - um... What does he do exactly? Bendis makes one of them menacing and the other retains his silliness.

The re imagining of Doc Oc is great. He becomes scary and nasty and an actual threat to a new hero. Yet, at the same time, there's some empathy for the poor guy. He didn't ask to be grafted to his body but actually killing people takes it a bit too far.

Kraven the Hunter could have been played solely for laughs. It was pretty close to that but Peter was concerned that he was just trying to do the right thing and there's this guy that wants to hunt him down like an animal. Still the whole one-punch confrontation was amusing.
