This issue finishes his dealings with Massacre and he definitely handles it differently than Peter would have. He doesn't pay attention to his surroundings as well while at the same time he is a much more prepared version of Spider-Man. He thinks things out before the attack but during the attack he isn't as quick thinking. I find that interesting considering that one of the reasons Peter always beat Otto is that he was quicker on his feet and more aware during the fight, even though Otto always seemed to be better prepared. I wonder if this is foreshadowing how Peter may get his body back.
After his dark dealing of Massacre he is also shown with the power of what he is starting to go to his head. Otto really does feel superior to everyone and thinks that New York belongs to him. This may be his greatest misstep and lead to him being defeated. I am also wondering what is going to happen with the reappearance of an old enemy that was teased at the end of issue #4.
It is obvious that there is a lot going on here and there is a lot to enjoy. Slott has a great understanding of Spider-Man as a character and I am really happy I trusted him going into this series. I still wait twice monthly with excitement to get this book. If you gave up on The Superior Spider-Man, I highly recommend you giving it one more chance.
