Dan Slott has evolved this book quickly (especially since it seems like this title ships every single week) into a Spider-Man title unlike any other we've seen before. Otto Octavius has truly carved out his own version of the hero who is so familiar, yet nothing like the one we've known for the last 50 years.
With the addition of the technology, using squads of helpers and the killing, it is now becoming obvious to the characters that inhabit the Marvel Universe that this is not the same Spider-Man they have always known, and the clock is ticking on Otto Octavius's time hiding inside the identity of Peter Parker.
I'm hoping that with the upcoming Scarlet Spider crossover, Kaine will be the person who definitively 'outs' Otto as an imposter, and sparks the investigation into who this 'Superior' Spider-Man really is. With Carly, MJ, The Avengers and more already suspicious, it can't be long until the status quo of this title shifts, and with what Dan Slott has been doing so far, it should be good times ahead for readers.
I have never been a fan of Humberto Ramos' art, but I will say that the level of detail he brings to the page is quite stunning at times. his lanky, cartoonish character art isn't really my cup of tea, but at least he delivers a high-quality level of excitement to the environments and action sequences.
Overall, this book has been climbing higher and higher towards the top of my pile with each new issue, and I hope that Otto can keep his secret under wraps for a bit longer, as this has been a different and exciting new Spider-Man title to read.
