I have to say this is, bar none, the best issue of Superior Spider-Man yet to date. None of the creepy subplot of Doc Ock trying to take advantage of the female supporting cast in order to get into their pants but instead actual character development based upon his prior criminal past and "friendship" with the Vulture. Not to mention develops with regards to Ghost Peter and Carlie Cooper. If I do have misgivings however, it's these:
end of spoilers
*while I get that Otto becomes enraged over the idea that the Vulture used little kids for his crimes (which is in keeping with the idea that Adrian Toomes is a modern day Fagin) and that it relates back to when he was abused by his dad as a child, Otto has had no qualms about hurting kids in the past, especially when you consider how his scheme in Ends of the Earth would've potentially killed millions of children. Granted, the idea is that he's seeing the Vulture in a new light now that he's Spider-Man, but it seemed like a slight disconnect IMO.
*And now that Carlie knows that "Peter" is really Doc Ock, there's really is no reason for her NOT to tell Mary Jane what's really going on. Except that I fear that she won't because of whatever plot contrivance that comes up. Which, as I said about her in the last issue, would really make her out to be a crappy friend, IMO. But we'll get to that bridge if and when we cross it.
