    2. The first volume of The Superior Foes of Spider Man delivers what you would expect from a humorous second banana villain team up title lots of banter, conflict, incompetence, pain, jail time, cowardice, back stabbing, etc The thing is, though, it s pretty funny Spider Man barely makes an appearance in this book, but fear not, true believer Nick Spencer finds countless appropriately non heroic angles that allow our baddies to shine I liked his writing much better here than in Morning Glories look [...]

    4. I blame cynical marketing for making cynics of us all or at least me Superior Spider Man has been a huge bestseller for Marvel and spinoff titles were inevitable So when I saw the multiple Superior titles appearing Team Up, Foes, and Carnage I stayed away thinking they d be derivative knock offs And it s that attitude that kept me away from one of Marvel s hidden gems from the last year Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber s Superior Foes of Spider Man a series which actually has nothing whatsoever to [...]

    5. A D List character buddy read with my Shallow Comic Reading pals Getting the Band Back Together was pretty damn good when all was said and done Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars for me Comic book humor is a hard sell for this guy as I typically prefer my comedy classless and of the blue variety, but this PG 13 routine worked pretty well overall.Long story short, a bunch of D list villains Boomerang, Shocker Heh , Beetle, Overdrive, and Speed Demon come together in a desperate attempt to get their [...]

    6. I didn t really know what to expect out of Superior Foes But I ve been really enjoying Superior Spider Man almost, but not quite, over my surprise so I thought it was worth a try Was it ever Reading it, I was reminded of Fraction s Hawkeye Incredibly high praise, and deserved Like Hawkeye, it has great action scenes, snappy dialog, and developed characters And it can be hilarious I don t want to fill this review with quotes, but I will say this the Owl waxing poetic about his Prius made my day D [...]

    7. Spider Man gets all the attention, but what about his foes What about the people whose bad behavior makes Spidey a hero Guys like Fred Myers The Boomerang This man was a pro baseball player until he snorted his chances away.His second career as a supervillain was just as questionable.Now Fred s fresh out of jail and he needs his crew to pull off a job.Fred needs better friends.Comedy is in the eye of the beholder What some people find incredibly hilarious, I often fall asleep duringI still don t [...]

    8. I ve heard a lot of good reviews for this surprisingly good reviews for a writer that exceeded expectations, and an underappreciated artist who is exceeding people s awareness of him.This reads like an episode of worst luck ever for the sad sacks It s hilarious Boomerang finds a way to get five of the Sinister Six back together for one big score and stumbles through the shambles of a life not quite beyond the law What I love most about this book is how down to earth normal their dialogue sounds, [...]

    9. OK this book is funnier than I had expected In fact, humour might be the thing that keeps this title afloat With all the gritty reboots and some characters having 6 series each X Men, Batman it s a welcome change to see some serious D listers Poor Shocker, he used to be at least B list This is in the vein of Matt Fraction s Hawkeye, and a little of Mark Waid s Daredevil Books focused on real characters, and how funny super types can be.Boomerang so named because he was born in Australia is a for [...]

    10. I think we all secretly want our own Heisenburg moment Which is why Boomerang is my new favorite superhero Well, I guess he s not very super And not really a hero either But whatever he is, he s my favorite I actually saw a Boomerang action figure the other day at Walmart I couldn t help wonder if this comic is why it even exists I mean, who else but a comic book dork would possibly be clamoring for a cheesy looking villain toy I should have took a picture and included it in my review Maybe I ll [...]

    11. I had a stupid grin on my face the entire time I was reading this Freaking hilarious I love graphic novels, but I don t own an awful lot of them I would buy this Seriously so funny The cover of this has a quote on it that I agree with completely Frankly, this book is awesome The art and writing complement each other incredibly well ComicVine

    12. Throw together a crew of five sad sack C List Spidey Villains to star in their own series and what do you get Hilarity Seriously, folks, this is without a doubt the funniest Marvel comic I think I ve readever Even Fraction s excellent Hawkeye books get weighed down by character building moments where you feel bad for Clint, Kate, etc but no such worries here, all five of the Sinister Six yes, I m aware of what I just wrote are such conniving cretins that the reader feels no remorse in laughing a [...]

    13. Loved this one It focuses on a bunch of Spider Man s lesser foes, such as Shocker and Boomerang, as they go about their everyday, humdrum lives, trying to put together the next big score If that sounds dull, well the whole thing is written with a very sarcastic humor that makes it a lot of fun I was reminded a lot of Donald E Westlake s Dortmunder novels, about a hapless gang of criminals, while reading this Who would have thought that Nick Spencer, writer of the impenetrable Morning Glories, ha [...]

    14. Who knew a book narrated entirely by Z lister Boomerang would be this entertaining.

    15. I can t remember when I last laughed so much yes, even out loud while reading a book A fresh, funny take on being a villain in the Marvel U, this book is right up there with Fraction Aja s Hawkeye in terms of fun creativity Definitely different, in a great way.I hope the same level of energy wit is maintained in the two subsequent volumes

    16. This book is utterly amazing its easily in my top ten, maybe even top 5 its one of the best marvel books I ve ever read i don t even wanna leave a review just read this that s all I m gonna say, you must read this entire series if you truly love comics it s phenomenal and terribly short.

    17. This is Nick Spencer at his best It s a terrific caper book, a great look at the character of Spider Man s less powerful foes, and overall a funny bit of meta comic storytelling.

    18. The Sinister Six yes, there are only five of them right now are up to their usual hijinks What that means is that they are looking for a job criminal of course and staying one step ahead of the law and their enemies.This is a different take on telling stories from Spider Man s world It isn t very serious, in fact it is downright silly at times It makes you wonder how these guys ever gave Spider Man a run for his money They spend almost as much time backstabbing each other as they do committing c [...]

    19. Nick Spencer nails the heist book with a solid super powered spin in the first volume of Superior Foes of Spider Man This book is brilliantly hilarious, smartly plotted, and gorgeously illustrated by Steve Lieber Characters come first in this story, taking d list throw aways like Boomerang and Speed Demon and turning them into real, fleshed out, and even occasionally likable people The new Beetle also shines brightly here, with a story centered around her on the horizon Every fan of crime comics [...]

    20. I ve read the first two volumes of this series after reading everywhere how good it is And it still managed to surprise me This comic is consistently smart and funny on every page and there s not a weak issue to be found Most fun I ve had reading a comic in a while There s no barrier to entry, so just hop in and enjoy the adventures of a pack of losers in NYC And don t let the title fool you, Spider man has nothing to do with this book The superior foes just happen to be d list villains teaming [...]

    21. This was EXCELLENT Hilarious, with really startling turns and fantastic art I like it a bazillion times better than Morning Glories, which I like a fair bit.

    22. five stars just for the hell of it i like seeing the B Listers and benchwarmers get there due a lot of these baddies have been in the Spidey canon for a while, but Nick Spencer gives them the Rogues DC treatment bad guys who don t have any aspirations for heady stuff like world domination nah, these guys want to pull a heist and go grab some drinks Boomerang try s to hold this dopey group together and the hijinks ensue thin on plot, but layered up on the fun give it a shot, whydontcha

    23. This really got me thinking who needs heroes There aren t very many at all to be found in this book and it s pretty dang good It s kind of a comedy, kind of a crime thing It works well I m looking forward to reading .

    24. Boomerang one of the greatest villains in MARVEL historyp that s right he is truly one of the greats alongside the likes of Green Goblin, Doctor Doom and Magneto well that s at least what I think now after reading this book, its that damn good As the story goes we follow Frederick Myers a.k.a Boomerang Tired of scraping by as a washed up d list villain he wants to make the big time and joins forces with fellow Spidey foes Beetle, Overdrive, Speed Demon and Shocker forming the new Sinister Six ev [...]

    25. Great book Real laugh out loud read This one flies in the face of what every other comic tries to do with villians These guys aren t anti heroes, misunderstood, or just trying to get out of a bad situation These are people who have decided that crime be it robbery, kidnapping, murder is the best way to get ahead in this world These people are often true holes.Now don t get me wrong That does not make this book bad in fact, that is what truly makes this book work These guys unapologetically make [...]

    26. This was pretty enjoyable It has the same feel as Fraction s Hawkeye, meaning you really dig into the main character s personal life and inner thoughts The difference being this is a fairly forgettable low tier villain and he s, well, a loser There are quite a few jokes and I did laugh out loud a few times The enjoyment here is the same as characters such as Gil from the Simpsons or Stuart from the Big Bang Theory there s something about seeing a loser pointing out how much of a loser they are T [...]

    27. Had been hearing about it for a long time in all the communities, vlogs etc So decided to pick it up, and now I cannot wait to read the next volume The first issue may not do the magic, but as the story progresses this series kinda grows on you Hilarious characters, lots of pop culture references and nice artwork Highly recommended Readers don t need to know anything about the Marvel Universe before reading it.

    28. This book is hilarious Every issue is jam packed with dry wit, callbacks to obscure Marvel history, and subtle visual gags It helps that Nick Spencer has written a villain Boomerang so relatable and charming that one can t help but root for him I m definitely in for the next volume.
