Avenging Spider-Man #8 (Insignificant Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Thu Jun 21, 2012 11:46 am

This issue serves as a tribute to Silver Sable, who ‘died’ in last week’s issue of Amazing Spidey. After spending ages trying and failing to find her body, Spider-Man is forced to accept that she’s gone, but not before a flashback where he tells Captain America about just why Sable was special to him. This was a fun story, pitting not just Spider-Man and Silver Sable, but also Doctor Strange against Doctor Doom, who was reliably evil. The story wasn’t anything special, but it had some good moments of humour, and as I said, it was a tribute to Silver Sable, it showed who she was, a mercenary, yes, but one who also cared. I must admit that this issue also made me smile at the thought of what reaction Spider-Man referring to his ‘girlfriend’ instead of his wife in the past caused to certain, crazier sects of the internet. No matter how much they try and forget OMD, it’s always there to smack them in the face, and their rage is never not hilarious. This was a solid issue, a nice epilogue to the big Ends Of The Earth story, and though I don’t believe for one second that Silver Sable is really dead, it still worked as a last hurrah for her.

What about Rhino? But yeah her "death" was too easy. It wasn't even like Kingsley's. No body at all to be found? She's alive for some other writer to use eventually.

I can't say it. It's too horrible.
