Spider-Man: Reign is in my opinion one of the more underrated Spidey stories out there. There's a bit of a "all there is to know about 'The Crying Game'" twist that's overshadowed the rest of the story. It's also been derided as a knock off The Dark Knight Returns (and the similarities are acknowledged with a character called 'Miller Janson') but in my opinion all they have in common is the concept of an aging superhero being called out of retirement. Simply put, Spider-Man and Batman are two very different characters -- you're not going to see Spider-Man as a hardened vigilante beating the crap out of Captain America. They're also products of two different periods; TDKR takes place during the Cold War, while Reign (although the connection is not as explicit) draws parallels with a post-9/11 America.

'Old Man Logan' is considered to be a magnum opus of sorts for Wolverine to the point that Hugh Jackman has said he'd like to adapt it someday. It takes place in a dystopian future in which the villains have won and Wolverine has refused to pop his claws.

Warning: This is pretty gory.

Spider-Verse gave me feeeeeelings this week, so here's another spider-crossover that gave me feeeeeelings: Superior Spider-Man vs. Scarlet Spider!

Superior Spider-Man, meet Kaine, the former supervillain who killed you that one time. Scarlet Spider, meet Otto Octavius, the former supervillain who stole your clone-brother's body/identity.

Sibling Rivalry

This will not end well.

One of the things I liked the most about Superior Spider-Man was the romance between Otto Octavius (in Peter Parker's body) and Anna Maria Marconi. It gave Otto some humanity but it was also nice to see a non-stereotypical little person for once (although it's getting better with characters like Tyrion from A Song of Ice and Fire).

I've discussed my thoughts on Superior Spider-Man for a while now and it certainly needs no introduction here, so I'll keep it brief. I really enjoyed Otto's character in this as he lives Peter's life and tries to be a hero in ways that only a supervillain would. For the first time since 2007 I was actually interested in 616 Spider-Man again. Part of me's hoping that he'll resurface again somehow after the events of being time-displaced during 'Spiderverse'.
