THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: THE GAUNTLET Vol. 1: ELECTRO & SANDMAN collects AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #612-616, DARK REIGN: THE LIST: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, and the "Gauntlet Origins: Electro" story from WEB OF SPIDER-MAN #2. The trade opens up with Dan Slott & Adam Kubert's one-shot, DARK REIGN: THE LIST: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. Norman Osborn, a megalomaniac thru and thru and currently at the helm of the Marvel universe, has made a list of people he'd like to snuff out or at least take care of. And at last he's set his eyes on Spider-Man. I really like this story, although in no way does it provide final resolution to Dark Reign. Well, maybe one nail in the coffin for old Normie.
Next up is Fred Van Lente & Barry Kitson's "Gauntlet Origins: Electro," in which we see how pathetic and yet lethal Max Dillon is. This origin, a tale rife with abject humiliation and little man complex, leads into the "Power to the People!" arc, and it's Mark Waid's turn again at the rotation. "Power to the People!" launches the Gauntlet banner. The Gauntlet isn't intended as a single tightly-woven story arc. The Gauntlet is more a mission statement. What we're about to get is a series of stories, the common thread of which is that Spidey's classic villains resurface one at a time and take a crack at Spidey.Read more ›
Spidey is also brought into the underworld of vampires with Morbious leading them.Also the original is brought back in town as he now fights the new Rhino to once again claim his spot.
We'll also see Flash Thompson being rehabilitated from his Iraqi wounds.
Collecting Amazing Spider-Man #622-625 and Web of Spider-Man #2 and #6 and features writing from Greg Weisman who was responsible for Gargoyles and Spectacular Spider-Man.
I give this 4 stars for the great writing though if I had liked the art better it would have easily been 5.
Glad they are bringin back Spidey's original villains I just hope to get a great Doc Ock story even though there isn't anything representing him on the cover.
