Superior Spider-Man Team-Up Archive

When we entered the “Superior” era last year, one thing I thought would be explored with a bit more frequency is the idea that Peter Parker and Otto Octavius are two very similar characters that inevitably took divergent paths from each other as hero and villain thanks to one
I’ve made no bones about the fact that I thought the Spider-Man team-up series du jour needed to move on from Chris Yost and find a new voice, and Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #9 does just that by kicking off the Kevin Shinick era on the book (which I anticipate
