Edge of Spider-Verse #5 Review
Okay, here’s my review of Edge of Spider-Verse #5. Read on as I try to make sense of the plot of the story.
The comic begins with the death of the previous user of SP//dr, which is a spider that uses a power-armor that can only be used by his daughter Peni. So after her Aunt May and Uncle Ben show up and tell her to get bitten by the spider so she can get into the robot we skip to five years later when she’s going again a giant orb that’s killing people while spouting lines about the meaning of terror and being powered by a lamer version of Mysterio. Who are we kidding, this is like a watered down version of Evangelion, only more optimistic and less mind-rapey.
To prove my point the next day when she gets called out of class, Shinji Ikari, Asuna, Rei, and that white-haired guy who died for him in the last move sit next to her. Mysterio tipped them off to a bunch of gangs because he’s a fan of hers so she and another version of Daredevil start kicking ass and taking names.
It’s on her way home that it starts getting confusing as Spider-Ham and another Spider-Man come to tell her that the Inheritors are coming and they would wreck the place to get her. Since SP//dr, the spider, trusts them she decides to listen to them and get her power-armor. The comic ends as the three of them jump through the dimensional gate.
Okay, review time!
Uh… I feel it’s skippable. I only hope that the author doesn’t get sued. 3 out of 5.
