Having not read a recent Marvel comic in some time (truly, the late 1980s as a kid), more or less everything about this story came as a shock. The art and layout was dynamic, the story was shocking, and at the same time really down-to-earth.

The intent of the purchase was to provide a comic for my middle son, who is over-the-moon about Spider-Man. Being completely oblivious of the story, and without looking inside, we bought this one along with a few others (always read the summary, folks).

The collected first part of the Superior Spider-man saga. Fantastic way of turning the Spider-man mythos on its head, instead of Spidey bonding with a symbiote and turning a dark turn this involves some mind swapping.

The premise of this is a dying Doc Ock swapping his mind with Peter Parker. This leads to some interesting ideas as Ock wants to be a better Spider-man than the original, both behind the mask and in the mask. This sees his personal life evolve in some interesting ways. Spidey

In short, Superior Spider-man tells the story of Doc Octopus in Spider-man's body.

The long version:

This is a fresh take on Spider-man, reminding me much of Jean-Paul Valley's Batman.
As a strategist, Doc Ock is a far superior Spider-man, being able to anticipate all possibilities and devise a plan for pretty much any outcome (much like what Batman does).
He also doesn't mind getting his hands dirty and punishing those who threaten the safety of New York and its inhabitants. Despite his brilliancy

My exact rating for this is 4.75, rounded up I gave it 5 stars. A definitely outstanding concept for a superhero story and for a long-time and well loved comic book character. Now I understand how much the Superior Spider-Man series revolutionized our usual perspective on superheroism. This is Dan Slott's best!

I cared less for Doctor Octopus but this book changed that and gave me a lot of respect for the character both as a villain and a hero. The grand plan of escaping death and body switching

One hell of a story arc - I found the idea to be shocking and engaging, and it was interesting to see what Otto Octavius did when he was in Peter Parker's body, and the decisions he made.

What Otto did, in stealing Spiderman's body, was obviously wrong and I can not condone that action especially as in the switch, Parker had been left to die in Dr. Octopus's old body. But it's still one hell of a story, man.

But Otto does learn a few things along the way and falls in love. In the end, Parker does

En lo personal Spider-man es de los pocos super héroes que me dejan un buen sabor de boca. La forma en la que maneja sus deberes morales me parece divertida porque puede dejar a un lado todo lo que esté haciendo si ve que alguien lo necesita. Pero con el giro de Superior Spider-man comenzamos a verlo actuar más responsable afectivamente y consigo mismo, dejando a un lado la ciudad. Al mismo tiempo lo vemos tratando de dejar de ayudar Nueva York y comenzando a intantar controlarlo ¿hasta dónde ...more

It's true. Anyone would be a better Spider-man than Spider-man himself if they had some ambition or creativity.
