Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   June 14, 2017
Ordinary story with a lot of cool stuff happening.

Pages 1-4: A friend and semi-regular tries to help an aggressive and out-of-character Spider-Man, who doesn't know/admit that there's something wrong with him.

Pages 4-5: A group of super-villains meet in the shadows. Not hard to guess who they are, and it's fun to see a meeting like this, foreshadowing an upcoming story.

Pages 6-17: A battle on the grounds of ESU which - let's face it - gets attacked a lot.

It's an average tale of an out-of-control 'villain' who needs help. Today, of course, Spidey is not himself so he completely overpowers his foe, almost killing him.

Then we get a big cliffhanger...

8/10

  -I dig the concept Mantlo was going for here, it just seems like he could've done something a bit more creative than the Spider-Lizard.

  This was a ** until The Spiderlizard.....
It gave me a good chuckle.

  The 80s, an era that saw a sudden upsurge in out-of-control reality-altering supervillains...

  I was really liking the issue, **** liking it...but that last panel absolutely killed it for me. Now I'm debating whether that lost it 1 or 2 stars :(

  Is there anything the enivator can't do?

  I'm tired of the enivators, and getting tired of the SSM comics. They're nowhere near as good as ASM.

  Dude, Spider-Lizard absolutely made this issue gold!

  Now that I've been thinking about it, what about the enervator gave Pete the DNA of a lizard (thinking back to Connors' origin)? This is getting ridiculous the more I think about it.
