Remember when Squirrel Girl's title actually changed up Kraven's character, giving him a new lease on life and making him interesting again?

"Squirrel Girl has always found the good in everyone - even Kraven! - and because of her he's had this really redemptive arc in our book, since our first issue. But he hasn't always walked the straight and narrow - even after knowing Doreen - and this will be a story exploring that."

So here we are, the big finish to Peter Parker's tenure on 'Ultimate Spider-Man' (but not my last post in the series, there's one more). For this arc Bendis was reunited with original artist Mark Bagley. This was a pretty big event for Marvel right down to the ominous previews (which were just 'Death of Spider-Man' leading people to wonder if 616's days were numbered) to the multiple variant covers to the last issue being in a polybag. (I always found the last bit to be kind of funny; they said it was to prevent spoilers but then they went to the press with the ending a day before its release.)

In some ways the 'Doctor Octopus' arc could be viewed as an example of Bendis's 'decompressed' storytelling given that it ran for seven issues, Spidey and Ock don't even meet until four issues in and the story is a bit cluttered with subplots involving Justin Hammer and Kraven. Still, I enjoyed it quite a bit.

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.

Greetings True Believers!

To my knowledge Marvel Adventures: Super Heroes #4 is the only time Wade has appeared in the MAverse.

He chews the scenery and leads the Avengers on a merry chase through New York City.

Enjoy!
