"Joking Hazard"
Oh man Otto, you are really starting to mess up. It is sad to see that all the years of being who he was has made his fuse so short and for him to come across as almost immature. He is quick to defend other people being picked on and if he feels picked on, oh man does he snap. That is what this issue was showing, how unbelievably unbalanced Otto is becoming.

The use of weird b-class criminals was good here. Slott really know how to set up an arc by using people you really don't care about first. I think the fact that Spidey is also working closely with JJ should have also been a flag that things were going to start going to crap quickly. I think the whole "Superior Spider-Man" complex has tilted Otto over the edge and everyone is aware. EVERYONE...that includes the Avengers. They see how he is handling his criminals and how different he is versus the Spider-Man they added to the team and they feel it is going to be time to do something about him. They can't have an Avenger out there shooting villains in the head and beating non-superpowered people into a pulp.

For all of the naysayers out there about this title I really hope you have given it more than the first issue as a chance. There is a lot to love and and I am becoming more and more convinced that the Otto thing will be temporary. I have a gut feeling that as soon as Otto completely ruins Peter's reputation and life, he will get his body back. We can't have a too happy Spider-Man for too long, can we?
