"It's super-dark. You have to imagine someone like Red Skull, who is such an evil force, is so manipulative, and I've always been a believer that once you start to look for the darkness you realize it was all around you all the time. The story is very much a Heart of Darkness sort of story about how you keep going deeper and deeper into this thing and in the process of doing that, the journey to find the Red Skull, it starts to corrupt them. It starts to turn them as well. It gets kinda dark."

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.

In 2004 Marvel released a Spider-Man title under the 'Marvel Knights' imprint. The basic idea was to make a more "hard PG-13" Spider-Man title with Mark Millar and Terry Dodson delivering a 12 issue arc in three parts. There's no official title for the whole thing but it's been called "Shush" by the fans given the obvious similarities to 'Hush' that was running around the same time; an "epic" about a mystery villain causing havoc that happens to involve the majority of the hero's rogue gallery.

FWIW, while both are a lot of 'style over substance', I enjoyed "Shush" a lot more. You may think differently.

Well Spider-Verse keeps on trucking on, and the overall attitude of grimdarkness seems to have even ensnared Spider-Girl in its web. However, there is still hope: she's appearing in Spider-Verse team-up, once more in the capable hands of Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz. As a result, I've decided to post my very first entry on s_d to share in the joy that is Spider-Girl. (I've endeavoured to keep it within the bounds of the rules, and I apologise in advance if I've inadvertently broken any or otherwise mess up).

Electro has a rather odd supervillain origin story: electrical engineer is working on power lines, gets struck by lightning, gains electricity powers, decides to become a super-villain. Basically, he could throw lighting bolts but fought one of the few characters fast enough to dodge them.

After the 'Ultimate Venom' posts I did last month or so, I figured I'd do a series of posts on the Kingpin from Ultimate Spider-Man. IMO, the Kingpin is one of Bendis's best characters both in and outside of Ultimate. Bendis had a background writing noir/crime comics prior to coming to Marvel, so its not surprising that the first major villain in the series after the Goblin would be Wilson Fisk.

There's a complicated time-travel framing event of this multi-timeframe issues, which has Iron Lad meeting the adult versions of the Young Avengers (Tom Shepherd is Quicksilver, Ted Altman is Captian Marvel, Elijah is Captain America and so on) in the future, and him telling them a story of the very first few days of the Young Avengers to remind them who they were...

Oh and Alan Davis art beneath (Do you NEED more motivation? Shame on you) )
