Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   October 9, 2017
Enjoyable middle-of-the-road stuff with a new villain.

What Does the Villain Want? Revenge on Spider-Man, and then to steal stuff and become rich. The revenge motive makes sense here, as Spidey is to blame for the villain's creation.

The narration has a nice obsession with time and countdowns.

The villain is nothing special, however, just a rip-off of Sandman.

6/10

  -Hydro-Man is just another version of Sandman.

  I've heard some not-so-good things about Denny O'Neil's run on this title, but I found this (and previous) issues to be enjoyable. It almost feels like a throwback to some of those late 60's Spider-Man issues with the spare but funny Stan Lee dialogue and the big & beautiful Romita Sr. panels.

  1. Hydro-Man looks for Spider-Man by going into every bathroom in New York.
2. Spider-Man looks for Hydro-Man by looking into every bathroom window in New York.
3. Thankfully, due to narrative magic, paths cross at a far, far higher rate than average probability.
4. Everyone going to the bathroom in New York breathes a sigh of relief.

  I'm glad Spider-Man made the Sandman comparison since we were all thinking it. While his 'get Spider-Man' reasoning was pretty thin, there is a lot you can do with a water power, so I'm looking forward to whenever he inevitably regroups himself back to life

  I wonder how long he laughed at his own cleverness for having the lady at the bar call him a drip. In my head he laughed for hours.

  Sheeee-sh. I personally prefer "it" over "sh" myself.
Speaking of sheeee-it, I was hoping for more out of Hydro-Man.

  I have a soft spot for Hydroman because the Sinister Syndicate was one of the first comics I owned
