‘Ends Of The Earth’ comes to it’s conclusion, and it was pretty good in some ways, but not so good in others. My main problem was that the ending seemed rushed, especially in how Slott dealt with the death of Silver Sable (of course, we didn’t see a body, so she could always come back), we only had one page of aftermath, there probably should have been more. Hopefully next week’s issue of Avenging Spidey will give us that. It was a pretty good way for Sable to go out, and even more so for the Rhino, who’s become a truly scary villain since his wife was killed. I was surprised that Slott didn’t go ahead and kill Doctor Octopus too, this plot seemed like a great way to end his story, but it wasn’t to be, and it did continue the full-circle round to ‘Nobody dies’. That’s been a major theme of this ‘Big Time’ era of Spidey, and now that he’s failed, I’m very interested in what’s going to happen. I would probably have also liked a longer fight between Spider-Man and Doc Ock, considering the easy way in which the mind-controlled Avengers were eventually dealt with, that fight went on for too long. Overall this has been an excellent Spider-Man event story, it took him out of his element a bit, and really elevated him to another level of superhero story. He’s not just a street-level character anymore, he’s literally hit the big time, which I suppose is why this era is called that. Next up is a Lizard story, hmm, I wonder why he’s coming back, it couldn’t be because of a movie or anything like that could it?
