Spiderman teams up with She Hulk! What!

Spiderman teams up with Ms. Mavel (now Captain Marvel)...

Spiderman teams up with Deadpool...

Spiderman has a run in with....Hypno-Hustler?!

Ugh, this comic was pretty disappointing. She Hulk was a total bitch and not at all her quippy self. Captain Marvel was reduced to a nothing character in one of the most boring stories I have ever read. The one and only saving grace was Deadpool but it was quickly ruined by the appearance of Hypno-Hustler. These comics ar

It was cool to revisit Spider-Man, Deadpool, Carol Danvers and the lot. Deadpool's issues were particularly entertaining, as expected, and I always love Spider-Man teaming up with other people. He's hands down one of the most chill and fun superheroes to read about. However, it still felt like I was parachuting in the middle of something and not getting the whole picture. The stories were all pretty random and failed to deliver a more substantial response, which was disappointing. I love the art ...more

Recommends it for: Spider-Man completists
This was just a weird hodge-podge of stories collected for next to no reason. Kelly Sue DeConnick is a good writer but these tales all felt like fill-in stories. Captain Marvel and Spider-Man teaming up would normally excite me but due to the less than stellar plot and lackluster "villains" this didn't amount to much. The Deadpool story was even worse as the art was also a big miss. Overall, these were bland and forgettable stories that definitely don't have anything to do with Spider-Man "aveng ...more
The Captain Marvel and She-Hulk stories are easily 5/5 stories, fun and exciting while also doing a great job with the personalities of the characters. The final two issues, a Deadpool team-up, isn't bad, but it's trying just a little too hard.
The art in these comics has been excellent. The stories are kind of all over the place, I think they're using it as a tool to get people interested in other series. The writing is decent though so it's still fun.

Avenging Spider-Man is a series highlighting Spider-Man's team-ups with various other Marvel characters. This volume collects stories featuring She-Hulk, Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers), and Deadpool.

All three stories are perfectly serviceable, but they are only that - serviceable. None really come across as anything particularly special, but they are enjoyable in their own right. It's not a book worth reading or owning in any specific capacity, but Spider-Man or Marvel fans will find the adequa

I liked the first volume of this series well enough, but this was pretty poor and will be the last volume of Avenging Spider-Man I read. The reasons that I disliked this volume may not necessarily apply to everyone though so read on and see if this book might be for you. The issues collected here are a bit odd and seemingly random. I read these issues on Marvel Unlimited and am disappointed that the issue I did enjoy (which is about Uncle Ben's death and how it affected Peter) is not collected h ...more

I picked up a few graphic novels this week and one of them was Avenging Spider-man: The Good, The Green and The Ugly written by Kelly Sue DeConnick and art by Stuart Immonen

I really enjoyed this book! To me it portrayed Spider-man exactly how he should be, sarcastic, funny and annoying (to the other characters at least). The book was split into three stories in which Spidey teamed up with a different character for one reason or another.

This collection of stories is nothing special, but they're all pretty enjoyable. I don't get why anyone would particularly dislike any of them. They're all kinda on par with each other, though in different ways. She-Hulk annoyed me in the first story, but Spidey had some nice quips & it was a genuinely weird little tale. The second two-parter with Captain Marvel was also quite out-of-the-box, though as with the first, there's not much sense of wonder to the enjoyment. The third two-parter wi ...more

Captain Marvel


These were the three characters Spidey teamed up with. Did this book make me want to read any of their own stand alone books? Not really. The Captain Marvel story was even written by Kelly Sue Deconnick, and I still didn't really care.

I think it is an issue of the format. We comic book dorks really love ongoing stories, that reward you for reading every issue. Having stories that take place in a single issue, or over the course of two issues doesn't have that hook.

This is getting a bad rep but I really enjoyed these stories. Sometimes it's nice to have a stand alone story which doesn't pay too much mind to the ongoing continuity. Here were get a lot of humour, some great action and a real sense of how annoying Pete can be to the other heroes.

I'm not sure if that was an accurate representation of She Hulk (I suspect not) but I really didn't like her. The actually story was pretty bizarre and entertaining though and Pete's Egyptian geekery wins the day.

This series is incredibly good. Humor, awesome team ups, great one off villains. the art is varied but constantly good.

I admit that I initially grabbed this solely by the cover, being Captain Marvel is my favorite Super Hero. I was in now way disappointed by the story arc featuring her, and I have to say that those two issues may be my current favorite comic stories ever. There is a perfect mix of action, character driven story, humor, and the art is perfect. the "villain" in that story ended up

This is a very varied volume, which doesn't quite hit all the right notes.

The first story by Kathryn Immonen is good for a few laughs, but has some very clunky dialogue that drags it down. Kelly Sue DeConnick's Captain Marvel two parter is probably the most enjoyable, but has a quite confusing plot that relies on characters being pigheaded in order for the story to advance. Finally, Kevin Shinick's Deadpool two parter is decent, but tries a little too hard and is quite forgetable.

My decision to read this book came at a good time. I had enjoyed the first volume of the title, I needed some Spider-Man in my life, and I'd find a sale on these issues.

I'm not really going to say anything that you probably haven't already read about this book. It's a Spider-Man team-up book (in this book, with She-Hulk, Captain Marvel, & Deadpool), it's designed more for laughs than deep stories (which it certainly provides, hilarious), and the artwork, though by various artists, is phenome

This collection of the Avenging Spider-Man: The Good, the Green and the Ugly was very entertaining. This was a collection of all the funny issues, #7, #9-10 and #12-13. We get to see the She-Hulk with a cats tale fight with Bastet the cat goddess. Then Spider-Man teams up with Captain Marvel to fight an evil bank and giant friendly robot. With the final showdown being a team up with Deadpool. The dialog for all these issues was excellent. The stories while maybe not smart were at least entertain ...more

Surprisingly awesome. First Spider-Man comic I've ever liked (grabbed it cuz o' DeConnick's Captain America).

The one-on-one team-ups are the perfect format for Spidey; still full o' puns, but the effect is mellowed (and sometimes even mocked) by his partners. And because the focus is on action, there's no time for the usual angsty Peter Parker-ness. The Captain America story is solid, the She-Hulk one made me want to read more of the character, and the Deadpool team-up... well, that's just a ca

So, the Captain Marvel and She Hulk stories (by Kelly Sue DeConnik and Kathryn Immonen, respectively) were really fun. DeConnik doing Carol is always great, and the only reason I bought this.If you like Captain Marvel, read this. It's like an extra two issues of that book. Plus Cap and Spidey are always good foils. The last story, the Deadpool one, it was just weird. It wasn't my bag and I thought the art was wonky.

This volume started off as mediocre. First a team up with She-Hulk, then Captain Marvel....I wasn't really looking forward to the rest of the book. Then DEADPOOL!!! Hilarious! Spidey and Deadpool should team up way more often. I haven't laughed that hard in quite some time. Full of irony and off-the-wall nerd references, I highly recommend!

Kind of lackluster in comparison to the previous volume, but the Spidey-Pool bit at the end saved this book. After reading this, I'm interested to hunt down some more Spidey-Pool comics because this was hilarious. So, it may not have had the story or action of the first volume, but it could definitely be crowned the king of laughter because of Deadpool alone.

I bought this one for no other reason than I saw the last page. Haven't read the previous issues but I will pick them up if I get the chance! It was really funny, especially the Deadpool issues. Let's do the time warp again! ;]

Various adventures with Spidey and assorted friends. The issues written by Kelly Sue (and featuring Captain Marvel) are my favorite, obviously, but the Deadpool and She-Hulk ones are fun too!

averaged rating. the first two tales, with she-hulk and captain marvel, 4 stars. the inclusion of deadpool, who i can't stand? brings it to 2 stars, so i'll average it.

An easy four stars for the She-Hulk and Captain Marvel issues, but only two stars for the Deadpool ones, so three overall.

The issues where Peter teams up with Captain Marvel and She-Hulk were four star worth, but the ones with Deadpool were two star worthy, so averaging it out.
