Review: This was a pretty solid tie-in to Siege. The twists made logical sense and the dialogue was on point. Art’s pretty good, some parts were a bit off, but overall an excellent job. The interaction between Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel was fun. Mac Gargan was cool as Venom (like the rest of his time with the symbiote). One scene that really caught me by surprise was when Spidey basically rips Venom’s tongue out. It was kinda cool though. While this wasn’t really an important factor in the overall Siege storyline this was still a fun read.
Overall Rating: 7/10= Good
Story Summary: It’s an all-out brawl between Spider-Man and Venom as chaos ensues up in Asgard, and the two arch-nemesis’ are biting each other’s heads off down in Oklahoma. As Venom strangles the evil out of Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel flies in the fight, and punches Venom into the ground. Ms. Marvel doesn’t stop there. Shoving her hands into Venom’s mouth, she rips Mac Gargan out of the symbiote, but the symbiote then covers Ms. Marvel. With no other option, Spidey swings to the nearest church (well, that’s convenient), only to find out that there’s no church bell (Spider-Man: “Son of a budget cut.”). Spider-Man then kicks Venom into some transformers, electrocuting Venom (again, convenient). Ms. Marvel flies out of the goop, unaware that the symbiote just went back to it’s original host, Mac Gargan. Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel then play a little game of baseball; Spider-Man webs Venom’s feet, and swings Venom into Ms. Marvel’s path, and she hits Mac into a H.A.M.M.E.R. ship. Flying back to Asgard, Spider-Man admits that Venom told him that while hosting Ms. Marvel, he felt her “liking” for Spidey. Discussing this, Ms. Marvel doesn’t deny it.
