All the feels….
This episode features mostly emotions and new outfits as the team begins the investigation after class, where Jaune promptly gets shot down again for a date with Weiss. Where is Pyhrra during this?
Anyway, Wiess and Ruby planned on heading out to get files from her father’s company about the shipments, while Blake and Sun would find the White Fang’s base and see if they could learn more, while Yang and Neptune go to meet with an old contact of hers in the wrong part of town.
Ruby and Weiss split when they run across Penny, leaving Weiss to go to the communication room. She gets the information, but she avoids talking to her father and sister, Winter, over the line because of some emotions that weigh on her shoulders. It’s a humanizing moment.
Ruby, on the other hand, tries to get Penny to open up about what happened weeks ago when she left the group. She says her father was upset and she wasn’t supposed to talk to them, but when they stop at an android exhibition, the things Blake and Adam cut through in drones, two security guards spot her and she flees. Things happen and that poor dust seller is about to run over Ruby by accident when Penny grabs the truck and stops it.
Obviously, that set off some warning bells and Ruby asks for answers. As the video ends, Penny reveals she’s not a real girl (Pinocchio anyone?).
It was a deep episode, giving more insight into the mask Weiss wears and Penny’s true identity. 4.5 out of 5.
The Edge of Spider-verse is beginning and it’s starting with SpOck in the lead as we review issue #32 of The Superior Spider-Man, set between the period where he got wiped from the time-stream and Horizon was destroyed.
The comic begins after he was “inferior” to Peter Parker because he couldn’t stop the explosion due to wiping his memories. It turns out that it didn’t kill him, but put him in the year 2099. Public Eye, the generic bad guys, tries to arrest him, but he’s not Miguel and won’t take that lying down or running away. He makes them run, but Miguel’s brother, Gabriel, remembers from his voice he’s Peter from the 90s series of Spider 2099 when they crossed over, but Otto doesn’t and it doesn’t matter.
Once in a safe place, Otto wastes no time in procuring parts to travel through time and dimensions with the aid of his holo-agent in his new base of operations. By that, I mean he steals from everyone with the parts, including Alchemax. It’s kinda awesome.
He then adjusts the holo-agent to resemble Anna Marie and then begins to time-jump. Instead of landing in his own time, he lands in a parallel timeline where someone (Morlun, I’m sure) has killed the fantastic five, the last of which was another Spider-Man. He tries again and again, finding more and more dead spider-men, and figures out he’s not the only one jumping through dimensions.
We then skip to another Spider-man, one named Peter Phabhakar, who is getting hunted down. He’s about to be another dead spider when Otto jumps in and saves him, explaining that he’s been tracking the hunter through twelve dimensions and taken it upon himself to raise an army of Spider-Men to fight the creature. As they reach the group we see he’s gotten a couple more to join his ranks.
In the second part of the comic we met a spider-man who became more like Otto and started taking this seriously, killing his enemies and training with Logan, who dies when the masked creature runs him through and vaporizes him. When Alex, a woman he loves, tries to cover for him, he knocks her out and then lures the creature into a trap.
It doesn’t work and he’s saved by Otto again, who reveals that he wants him to join so they can help kill the bastard. Most of the other Spider-Men aren’t as pragmatic as they are, so he needs someone like him backing him. He joins on the condition that they kill the creature, which Otto states it’s him or them as the comic ends.
Okay, review time.
This was better than I expected honestly, a great way to get into a crossover of this size. I can’t wait for Jessica Drew, Kaine, Miles, and the others to join in soon. The art was lovely as well.
It gets a perfect score!
