Avenging Spider-Man is essentially the new Spider-Man team-up book.   It pits Spider-Man with a threat he can only (or has to face) with an ally of some sort.  But with Doc Ock being the new Spider-Man so far he has proved he doesn’t need anybody’s help to take out the scum in New York, so why exactly is this title still going?   I love Chris Yost as much as the next guy but if we are really gonna make this guy “Superior” there is absolutely no need for team-ups, especially with the Future Foundation!  Here is the official press release:

The FF Get Superior In AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #17!


Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Avenging Spider-Man #17 from the red-hot creative team of Chris Yost & Paco Medina!
