After how much fun I had last issue, I couldn’t wait for this book to come out this month. I may not be as well-versed in the Spider-Verse lore as some readers, but I enjoy some good silly fun. That being said, let’s jump right into this issue and see how much fun we can have with it.
After a quick peak into Earth-90214, we jump right over to Earth-803, just in time for the Spiders vs. Electros battle. Old Man Ben goes to pick up some kind of weapon to destroy the giant robot Electro, just as Harry Osborn from Earth-90214 shows up to destroy the Web. Ben leaves Karn to take on Harry and heads back to Earth-803 to rejoin the fight.
Ben uses the Brain Stomper to take on the robot, which houses the minds of hundreds of Electros. Ben enters the mind of the giant Electro and commands the rest of them to stand down. There isn’t much time for celebration, though. Karn calls out to the Web Warriors and tells them that Harry is destroying the Web. Karn can’t get them back to him to help, but they come up with a plan.
They hook up the giant Electro to an amplifier, and play music across every strand of the Web. The combined force hits Harry and knocks the rest of his face off, making him go full out Green Goblin. Apparently the rock and roll worked, and the Spider-Verse is saved. Ben gets the Battery to let go of all of the Electros and send them back to their home worlds.
Our issue, and series, ends with the team back at home base, working on how they can save the universe without having such a negative impact on the Web itself. This was a very quick read, but it was pretty enjoyable. It felt like a little bit of a rushed ending, but the art looked really good and I had a lot of fun reading it.
Bits and Pieces:
This one wasn’t quite as good as the last issue, but it was still a lot of fun. It wrapped up most of the story threads going on and gave us some new rules moving forward if Marvel brings it back in Marvel NOW 2.0. My only hope is that, if they do bring it back, they keep this creative team together.
