    A fine start to the new arc. I don't think this will hit the greatness of last year's Spider-Island, but it looks like we could be in store for a great Doc Ock story. And the artwork is just fantastic. I'm really glad to see Caselli back on the book. I really like how we get to see how Peter's inventions are positively affecting the world. He's making a difference as Spidey yeah, but he's making an impact as Peter. I hope Slott really runs with that subplot over the next few months. I'd like to see how far this could go. This is a pretty great step for Parker's character I think.

    A great issue! Say what you will about the recent Spider-Man comics and the changes done but Slott really knows how to writer Spidey and he does a great job. There were a few odd instances in the issue, like Spider-Mna punching Al Gore and an apeparance by Stephen Hawking, which I found more distracting that servicable to the plot, but I am enjoying what Slott is doing here. This is a great 'big' story for Spider-Man and I wonder how this will all play out. The story is walking a fine line though and with the Avengers it is seeming like Spider-Man could easily be pushed aside so this is close to not being about Spidey at all but Slott is able to keep it together.

    Now the idea of a 'queen bee' type piece of sand in Sandman that controls everything is a pretty smart idea as is the way Slott comes up with a way to defeat Sandman. However there isn't a way Slott can make Sandman a viable threat after this. Spider-Man can beat him hands down now without any problem. I wonder how Slott will fix that. Still this was another really enjoyable issue by Dan Slott. He's doing a great job on the series and I'm really interested to see how this arc turns out. We're getting closer to issue #700 too!

    I don't know if I buy the excuse that EVERY non captured, big name hero is off world during this story, but other than that this story is pretty awesome. Although you'd think someone, somewhere would realize that all the heavy hitters in the Avengers (You'd think S.H.I.E.L.D. would be trying to find them) have just up and vanished with no explanation.

    More big changes are coming, this time for issue #700, which comes out around the end of AVX:

    In which Slott stated that Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso has been
    contacting other creators on other Marvel books to ensure they
    reflect... whatever change is coming with Amazing Spider-Man #700
    towards the end of the year.
    What happens
    in #700 -- everything I've written my entire career in comics, nothing
    has had this big an effect on a character than what happens in
    "Spider-Man" #700. Other creators will say, "This will break the
    Internet in half," and "This will do this" and "This will do that" --
    this is for real! This is my biggest whack at the comic book piñata. I'm
    breaking it and all the candy's coming out. It's not going back
    together. Something really seismic is going to happen in "Amazing
    Spider-Man" #700. So, you're going to have "AvX" happen and shortly
    after, "Amazing Spider-Man" #700 and the Marvel Universe that you're
    going to see after that -- it's not a reboot. There is no reboot. But
    the effects of "AvX" and the event that happens in "Spider-Man" #700 are
    so big that you'll be looking at quite a different landscape after the
    seismic changes, he said, jiggling his neck fat.

    And then the guy that eventually replaces you will switch whatever you want to do back to normal, Slott. Surely, you must know enough about the business by now to be aware of this. Why are they still crying wolf as if the townspeople haven't quit looking a long time ago? How dumb does the average comic buyer have to be to fall for this? Also, don't play with your fat in public.

    A definite step up over the last installment or two which I found didn't live up to the kick off of the arc. I love the idea that many of Doc Ock's inventions for his scheme have been inspired by the work Peter is doing at Horizon. It's a great way to connect the two characters and their genius when it comes to science. Also, the mind-controlled Avengers and Peter realizing that all of this is his fault is a pretty great cliffhanger. I wonder how this will effect Peter going forward.

    A good finale to the story but not as great as I was hoping. I did like how Spider-Man distracted Doc Ock by pointing out the flaw in his plan. I found that was nicely in character and helped emphasize Spidey's science background. But still, the use of an EMP to stop the Avengers seemed a a little weak to me. It was a good wrap-up to a good story but I thought it would have a bigger impact than it did. I do like that they mentioned the whole 'Sandman torture' thing that has caused a bit of a problem with Spidey fans. Oh, and Sable possibly dead again? I wonder if it will stick?

    Still I am looking forward to the next arc with the Lizard.

    Wow that was not enjoyable to read. Obligatory avengers spot. Choppy narrative. And "oops I forgot I had an emp. Why didn't I use it in the first place?" Also bad dialogue between spiderman and doc oc.

    Marvel has given Fox News the scoop on an upcoming anniversary story where Spidey gains a new sidekick - Alpha.

    In this story, we find that Peter Parker’s days as photographer for the Daily Bugle are behind him and he’s now a scientist at a research firm. Andy is part of a student field trip that visits Parker’s lab. He’s in the wrong place (or perhaps the right place) at the wrong time when Parker’s invention malfunctions and zaps him with great power. Parker – haunted by the way he got his own super abilities and how his failure to use them led to the murder of his beloved Uncle Ben so many years ago – feels an even greater responsibility to help young Andy. He feels he must help him discover his powers and teach him how to use them responsibly.

    So, the team of Spider-Man and Alpha is born. Spidey has his own “Robin.”

    Still, the story of Alpha/Andy Macguire is not just a modern day retelling of the Spider-Man origin. It is déjà vu with a twist. While there are many parallels between Parker and Andy, they are also very different. As a teenager, Parker was a poster boy for nerdiness and an easy target for bullies. Getting bitten by a radioactive spider and acquiring super powers did a lot for his mojo, but a shyness and lack of confidence always seemed to follow Parker.

    Andy, Marvel editors and writers say, does not have a confidence problem. Like Parker of yesteryear, he is an outcast. However, Andy has a brashness, an edge, that Parker will find challenging, especially as he molds a potentially unpredictable teen who’s more powerful than he is. This may make Spider-Man and Alpha seem less Batman and Robin and more Odd Couple.

    This sounds so bad that I really hope it's a joke.
    Here's the deal, I'm the best there is. I wake up in the morning and I urinate excellence. And nobody can hang with my stuff. I'm just a big hairy American winning machine.

    I'm very humble, too.
