Marvel Adventures: Spider-Man V2 #21
Marvel Comics (February, 2012)WRITER: Paul Tobin COLORIST: Chris Sotomayor LETTERER: Dave Sharpe EDITOR: Tom Brennan SENIOR EDITOR: Stephen Wacker STORY 1 PENCILER: Rob DiSalvo INKER: Victor Olazaba STORY 2 PENCILER: Matteo Lolli INKER: Terry Pallot
In the main story, Peter & Chat happen to be in Greece when Magneto shows up, trying to prove that the Greek Gods are actually mutants. In the second, Spidey helps a girl get an autograph from a young singer only to get caught up in a theft attempt by the Chameleon.
What they got right: Both stories were fun to read. While I still have a problem with the fact that two short stories have taken over from one long story, I’m not sure they would have worked otherwise.
What they got wrong: Um, I think Magneto knows about the Greek Gods in the Marvel Universe (like Hercules according to Marvel) so claiming he’s descended from them and that they’re mutants seems rather odd. Plus I’m not sure he could be defeated that easily.
Recommendation: One of the better since the switch to short stories. Worth picking up.
That said, nothing really stood out as a Best Scene nomination. I blame the format.
