Superior Foes Of Spider-man #7 Review

The origin of the new Beetle is revealed and it is nothing like you would expect.

The Good

The cover art by In-Hyuk Lee is amazing with The Superior Foes looking larger than life and a bit imposing. The story is interesting and a unique take on the super villain origin story. The humor remains intact in this book, although it isn't nearly as funny as it has been in past issues.

The Not So Good

Switching from the Boomerang as the focus and narrator of the story to the Beetle is a bit jarring and you lose a bit of the feel of the book in the process. Personally, I would have loved to hear Boomerang's commentary on Beetle's origin as I believe it would have led to a more humorous issue. The art in this issue is not as good as the previous issues, although it isn't terrible by any means.

The Bottom Line

If you are interested to learn the origins of The Beetle or are just a fan of this series than you should pick this book up. However, if you are looking to jump into this book I would wait until the next issue. There isn't anything here that really stands out as must read, so I can't really recommend it to non readers of the series. Also, I can not say enough good things about how amazing the cover art looks, although I think it would have been better suited to last issues story and last issues cover to this one.
