This was a decent issue, easily my least favourite Spider-man one ever. And thats ironic seeing as this is the debut of a new one.
And the MJ relationship? Creepy!
What if a child dreamed of becoming something other than what society had intended? What if a child aspired to something greater?
I personally always enjoy reading opinion pieces that review things to see how others thought about it also, regardless of my view. :)

"Superior New Day" is temporary: but maybe Juggernaut can be the new She-Hulk! And Skeletor can be Battle Cat. Darth Vader can be Princess Leia in the new Superior Star Wars! Unleash the Whacken!
Just read the ign review and I agreed with a lot of what he said honestly. He even mentioned the art and how Delgado's coloring hurt it, which I commented that the coloring did not work for Stegman's sketch book-like style in another topic.
I think the 6.2 score the reviewer gave was a bit too low though.
If give this issue a 8/10 rating
I must say I really loved the way they showed us how the new Spider-Man is going to be 'superior'...its not just Doc Ock's ego talking, but the fact that he really IS going to be a whole different kind of Spider-Man with a different kind of methodology!
Ever since the reveal at the end, I've seen this theory circulating around, most notably on the Comic Vine site, that it might actually have been Peter all along, albeit 'brainwashed' to believe he's Doc. If that's the case, then when Peter eventually becomes 'himself' (or regains control of his body, whichever may be the case), I do hope the 'Superior' era will have some impact on him and his methods as Spider-Man and he does incorporate at least SOME of the changes in tactics that 'Otto' has developed for him.
Yeah the only thing I'm worried about is the raltionship with MJ... They could take it a couple directions... but, I dunno we'll see...
