While Christos Gage and Mike Hawthorne’s Superior Octopus isn’t the start of a new ongoing yet (Superior Spider-Man, from the same creative team, won’t start for a few months), it does give us a neat look into the character’s current goings on, and how he’ll play into the Spider-Geddon event later on.
