Ce tome fait suite à A troubled mind (épisodes 6 à 10). Il contient les épisodes 11 à 16, initialement parus en 2013, tous écrits par Dan Slott (avec l'aide de Christos Gage pour les épisodes 11 à 13, les 3 premiers (11 à 13) dessinés par Giuseppe Camuncoli et encrés par John Dell (avec l'aide Terry Pallot), les 3 derniers (14 à 16) dessinés par Humberto Ramos et encrés par Victor Olazaba. Il vaut mieux avoir commencé à lire la série à partir de Dying wish pour comprendre tous les tenants et les aboutissants de l'histoire.
Otto Octavius est maintenant seul maître à bord du corps de Peter Parker. Alors qu'il s'astreint toujours à suivre les cours du professeur Don Lamaze (qui l'irrite toujours autant), il reçoit un appel de J. Jonah Jameson (maire de New York). Jameson requiert la présence de Spider-Man à l'exécution capitale d'Alistair Smythe (Spider Slayer), le supercriminel qui a tué Marla Jameson sa femme. L'exécution doit se dérouler dans la prison "The Raft", dont la majeure partie des supercriminels ont été évacués vers une nouvelle prison.Lire la suite ›
Eh bien, là, on est servis ! Non seulement le porteur historique du costume de Spider-man, un certain Peter Parker, est vraiment mort et remplacé par Otto Octavius alias Doc Octopus (cf. 'Spider-Man: Dying Wish'), mais il est "mort-mort" (cf. 'Superior Spider-Man - Volume 2: A Troubled Mind'), car, pour ceux qui croient au concept d'"âme" ou de "conscience", Octavius a fait en sorte de se débarrasser aussi de celle de PP.
Dans ce tome composé de 6 numéros de la série (SSM #11-16), le "Superior Spider-Man" n'a quasiment plus aucun frein, sauf celui lié au fait que son "enveloppe parkérienne" n'est pas docteur en physique. Ce qui lui impose, pour récupérer le précieux parchemin, de suivre les cours de doctorat délivrés par un de ses anciens condisciples peu doués...
Au reste, Octavius laisse quasiment tout tomber de la vie de PP, y compris MJ (!!!), Aunt May, le laboratoire Horizons etc. car il est tout à la mise en place de son propre monstrueux agenda.Lire la suite ›

Anyhow... Dan Slott is weaving his magic, the story of SpOck keeps building, while the blocks are being put together, we start to see the tiniest of chinks in Spidey's armor, and the excitement continues. Giuseppe Camuncoli and Humberto Ramos and the rest of the art team are really lighting it up on the art front. Superior Spider-Man is some of the best Spidey I've ever had the pleasure of reading.
The Superior Spider-Man was my personal favorite comic running at that time, and had been since the release of the first issue. I had grown a strong liking for Otto Octavius aka Dr. Octopus as Spider-Man in Peter Parker's body. In the previous volumes, Peter had still existed in Otto''s consciousness and was able to prevent him from killing villains, most notably Boomerang. Otto discovered Parker in the corner of his mind, and he was able to enter the area Peter was still alive in. The two battled and Otto finally killed Peter once and for all; by doing this, he was no longer restrained by Peter in some ways, plus he lost all of Peter's memories. The Superior Spider-Man Volume 3: No Escape collects issues 11-16, and this book would be near perfect if not for one thing, Humberto Ramos' hideous artwork.
I will never understand the fascination behind Ramos' art. Why does this guy even have a job in comics? It should be a felony to even allow him within a mile of a comic. His character designs are so horribly done; they lack proportion, depth, detail, a pure sense of urgency, they all look rushed by someone with terrible arthritis in their hands. The characters look like drug addicts and they all look the same. Nothing looks cool here in the least not even the action, and that's a shame too because this book contains the final battle between Spider-Man and the latest Hobgoblin being Phil Urich. They deserved something a whole lot better visually, than something a retarded monkey could have scribbled out. I hate this guy's work; his artwork has brought down some good stories. I found myself being somewhat detached from Dan Slott's writing since everything is so ugly. I would rather look at Rob Liefeld's art than this toilet worthy garbage. Thankfully he doesn't draw the whole book; Giuseppe Camuncoli does the first three issues and his work is much better, it's no Ryan Stegman but I can live with a whole book done by him. The characters look quite better; the action scenes feel quite intense with Vulture, Scorpion, and Boomerang dead set for revenge, and the Spider Slayer looks cool as well. The first half of this book is fun to look at.
If not for Dan Slott's superb writing in making Otto's life so interesting in and out of costume, this book would be very weak. He does a great job with balance; Otto definitely walks the line of an anti-hero, but in his mind he is a hero that must draw the line somewhere. He has no intention on fighting the same villains over and over. He wants them down and out. His civilian life is also difficult for him to manage, and he even gives some thought on doing away with it. Slott also manages to keep the side plots interesting as Carlie Cooper along with Wraith seek to unravel the mystery behind Peter's change. This is another part of the story that is so cool. Although people can tell by the voice this is Spider-Man, it is becoming obvious that this is a different guy. Even the Kingpin is afraid of him now, in which he was never worried before about confronting Spider-Man head on.
People were whining about Otto taking Peter's life like this, but this was exactly what Spider-Man needed. It had been awhile since I was this gripped to the character, and the later storylines such as Necessary Evil and Superior Venom are worth catching.
The Superior Spider-Man: No Escape is a very good read and the follow up stories were great as well. It only has one thing I consider a flaw and that's the art for issues 14 - 16. I hate to deduct a star from this gripping book but I really can't tolerate Ramos' art anymore. This book can make a decent jumping on point, but I highly recommend picking up The Superior Spider-Man Volume 1 and skipping Superior Spider-Man Volume 1: My Own Worst Enemy. The difference between the two is that the former contains The Amazing Spider-Man: Dying Wish and Superior Spider-Man 1 - 5 which sets up everything, while the latter only contains issues 1 - 5. So go with choice one if you're unfamiliar.
Pros: Slott's writing, interesting plot and sub plots, future development
Cons: Ramos' artwork
In the first story arc, Spider Slayer is to be the last prisoner in The Raft, the island prison off of Manhattan, to be executed by the state. His crime: murdering J. Jonah Jameson’s wife. Jameson asks Spider-Man to join him on the day of execution to ensure the death penalty is carried out and, of course, things don’t go the way he planned. As well as Spider Slayer, fellow prisoners Boomerang, the Vulture, and Scorpion also run riot, enhanced by Slayer’s mini-robots.
There are so many details about this story that I loved, but, importantly, I really enjoyed the story itself. Spider-Man anticipating Slayer’s escape and his spider-bots going toe-to-toe against Slayer’s spider-bots was really fun, and seeing Jameson get in on the action himself was great – and he holds his own too! I won’t say how it plays out but it is handled superbly with Slayer thinking he has the upper hand because he knows what Spider-Man would do - except this is Otto the Superior Spider-Man and he’s constantly surprised by new Spidey’s choices, as are we as readers.
The Raft was meant to close but because of something Jameson says to Spider-Man during the escape attempt, Spider-Man’s able to take The Raft as his own private lair. It’s brilliant how Otto has adapted to the role of superhero but still has the mentality of a supervillain, getting a lair, building his robots, even acquiring henchmen (called “Spiderlings”!). It’s both really funny and says a lot about the character, distinguishing Otto once more from Peter’s Spider-Man.
The second story arc deals with Kingpin’s Shadowland headquarters, a crime nexus in the heart of New York. Shadowland was a series Marvel did a few years ago which I admit I didn’t read but, having read some reviews of the series, don’t feel I missed much. This much I know: it looks like an Eastern fortress and it’s making the residents living around it miserable. Why the Avengers don’t stomp it to pieces, I don’t know, but Spider-Man decides to do just that and, armed with his giant robot spider and army of Spiderlings, smashes Shadowland, putting Kingpin on the run – incredibly all in one issue!
This is why I like Superior Spider-Man than just regular Peter Parker Spider-Man – Peter would never do anything like this, despite knowing Shadowland exists. He just doesn’t have the wherewithal to do something of this scale, the planning, the imagination, the firepower, the balls - but Otto does and pulls it off admirably. Otto is proactive compared to Peter who was only ever reactive. Otto’s also got no boundaries, is unafraid of taking huge risks, and his boundless ambition and confidence creates enormously exciting stories within a short amount of space, all to the good. He’s redefining Spider-Man as a superhero and crime-fighter.
The other issues in the story arc feature Phil Urich, aka Hobgoblin, whose tenure as Kingpin’s henchman is up once Spider-Man appears to tear down Shadowland, so has to find other financial sources. Luckily for him the Goblin King has hacked Spider-Man’s spider-bots so that anyone resembling a goblin is undetected, allowing Phil to get away with his crimes much to Spider-Man’s frustration. Without going too deeply into the plot, there is one moment that stands out as remarkable and that’s Spider-Man’s outing of Phil Urich as Hobgoblin on every screen in New York! He does this primarily to get the people of the city to help him prevent further crime sprees but it’s doubly surprising in that he chose to reveal Phil as Hobgoblin so publicly – again, Otto is one unpredictable superhero and one determined to use all of the resources he has at his disposal.
It feels like all of this is enough for one book, right? Well, I haven’t even mentioned the other storylines Slott is juggling like Otto getting his PhD from former classmate Professor Lamaze, whom he despises, or his burgeoning relationship with Anna Maria, or how Carlie Cooper is closing in on discovering “Peter’s” secret identity. And I still haven’t mentioned the other big moments in this book like a character death and the emergence of a powerful new enemy! It’s insane how much Slott is putting into this story, it is absolutely bursting with creativity in one of the most engaging stories I’ve ever read from Marvel, let alone starring Spider-Man. Slott is a genius and Superior Spider-Man, I have to say once more, is a masterfully written book by one of the greatest talents Marvel has. Slott’s bringing his A-game to every issue and it really shows.
I think I could write a dissertation on Superior Spider-Man if I wanted, it’s so richly textured and layered – but I’ll leave it with this review and simply say I loved this third book like I loved the last two and can’t wait to read the next one. I don’t know who can read this and think otherwise, but there is only one verdict for Superior Spider-Man: it rules. Treat yourself to this incredible story and read it today!

Collects: The Superior Spider-Man #11-16
Over the past few years, Dan Slott has proven himself to be one of the best Spider-Man writers of all time. In fact, in the twenty years that I have been reading Spider-Man comics, no better writer comes to mind. I know that he has stated, publicly, that writing Spider-Man is his dream job, so I'm very happy to see him doing so well with it. I hope to see him continue writing this title for as long as he can generate good stories for us to read. Similarly to the way I felt about Dark Avengers, Superior Spider-Man has provided a fresh, new take on the character, the title, and the supporting cast, and I have loved the changes and sense of the unexpected in each issue. This book is the best, yet!
Otto has always been a very driven character, yet in his new Peter Parker persona, he has become even more driven. The added sense of responsibility that comes with the job of being Spider-Man has amplified his own ego and determination to be better than Peter Parker ever was. This ambition is ever-present in this book. As he seeks to ensure that Alistair Smythe meets his end at the prison-administered execution, things seem to (predictably) go crazy and spiral out of control when a prison break takes place. With several villains running loose and dozens of innocents to protect, Otto seems to be in a no-win situation. Otto really shines, though, as time after time he foils the carefully laid plans of Smythe (aka The Spider-Slayer) by out-thinking him. Seeing Otto managing to stay a step ahead of all of his adversaries with all of his forethought really brought to mind several Batman stories I've read. Just as Batman manages to out-smart ad out-plan his more powerful foes to defeat them in battle, so, too, does Otto. In every regard that matters to him, personally, Otto really is proving himself to be the Superior Spider-Man. The one area that he utterly fails to hold a candle to Peter is in his social skills. This is no surprise, as Otto is coldly results-focused and always wants the credit and personal fame for his accomplishments - something Peter Parker was never very interested in.
The action and drama in the book are deftly handled by Slott, and this book is certainly not like any Spider-Man book you may have read from a decade ago. I really have to give Slott a lot of credit for crafting such engaging and entertaining and innovative storied of the old web-head. Spider-Man has never been better than it is, here, so I gave the writing a 10/10 - something that I only do once in a blue moon.
Art on the book is also very well done by Camuncoli and Ramos. While I have never been (and probably never will be) a big fan of Ramos' manga-like artwork, I have to admit that the guy has talent and also has the ability to pump out lots of material in a short amount of time. Inks and colors on the book are more than adequate. No complaints on artwork, but I wish Camuncoli had been able to illustrate the entire book.
If you haven't been reading Superior Spider-Man, go ahead and see what all of the buzz is about. This book is a treat and I always look forward to the next collected edition.
Cool Factor: 10/10
Taking over the raft, and turning it into his new headquarters (Spider Island 2) was a genius move, and hiring Spiderlings as his "henchmen" was so hilariously enjoyable for me to read. His robots, the Aracnaughts, help make the Superior Spider-Man a legitimate military force. I could go on and an on about how much I like the new Spider-Man. For example, his new costume is super cool, and the advanced technology that he uses to fight crime truly makes him superior to the Amazing Spider-Man. If Peter Parker ever finds a way to make a return as the Amazing Spider-Man, I honestly want Doc Ock to continue as the Superior Spider-Man. In a lot of ways, I want Peter to stay dead, because this title is just too good. Thank you, Dan Slott.
Other quick notes:
-Taking down the Kingpin had to be done. Otto did the right thing, although it is possible this will escalate the violence.
-I like this version of Hobgoblin, but seeing him take over as the Goblin Knight may be fun too. I'm optimistic about this.
-I'm not convinced that the Goblin King is Norman Osbourne, but I could be wrong. Either way, we are heading towards a huge war against the goblins.
-The Lizard is a good guy now? This can't be forever.
-There is a nerd character that is really mad and powerful. I don't know who he is, but he seems important.
-Carlie seems to have things figured out about "Peter" not being himself, but I don't want her to solve the mystery. She is being aided in her investigation by Wraith. Again, I have no idea who this character is, or her importance.
-Norah got fired. What will they do with the character now?
