Amazing Spider-Man #7 (Edge of Spider-Man) Review
Okay, the next Edge of Spider-Verse and Amazing Spider-Man are both in one comic, so I can knock out two reviews in one here!
The comic begins with Peter, Cindy, and Anna Marie sitting in a tree—well, apartment room—with the first two K-I-S-S-I-N-G…. I’ll stop now. But anyway, Anna Marie has to play their babysitter until Cindy splits to find some place to live that doesn’t involve humping Peter, while Anna then tells him to ease up on being Spider-Man.
Meanwhile some people are stealing an Inhuman in its cocoon while wearing an original Ms. Marvel suit. Naturally the new Ms. Marvel can’t have that while Anna compares Peter’s method to Otto’s and suggests he leaves small things to the cops. That backfires the moment he gets wind of the incident with the Inhuman and goes after them.
He arrives just after the new Ms. Marvel gets there and stomps on the fake Ms. Marvel before getting a backhand into Peter, who she fangirls over since he dated the current Captain Marvel. Was that information public?
Either way, the mooks get their crap together while dropping hints how one knows Spider-Man and the imposter Ms. Marvel has basically kidnapped the Inhuman because her powers suck compared to the real Ms. Marvel and they’ve reached a creative dead-end, kind of like Marvel. Anyway, since it ends there after she transforms and I have no intention of reading another series for the conclusion, let’s call it a 3 out of 5, avoidable in the grand scheme of things.
As for the Edge of Spider-Verse part, we come across the British Spider-Man in Otherworld, a sort of hub for all space and time. There he’s watching as Morlun and his family kill off the spiders until one manages to spot him with some tech and he cuts the feed, deciding he needs to tell the other members of the Captain Britain Corps.
Naturally of the two women who are in charge, one of them chews him out about the limited scope of his totem being killed off since all of space and time is collapsing with incursions. Yeah, after Wolverine screwed the time-stream over on top of Beast bringing the O5 that reboot is looking more and more realistic in the aftermath of the Heroic Age. Shame DC did it first, but whatever. It would explain some of the bull that they’ve put out lately…
Uh, back to the story, the other lady believes this may be the source of all their problems and gives him the go ahead to play hero along the multi-verse as the comic ends. In all honesty, this should have been separate from the Amazing Spider-Man since both needed more pages that could be used to flesh out their story, like Spider-UK going out to save a few Spiders like Otto and set up the good team or finishing off the team-up.
But as it is relevant to Spider-verse I give it a 4 out of 5.
