Trust me, this book gets a lot better. But for the first three issues, we get “Spider-Man and Human Torch.” The first issue was good, but the second, versus the Frightful Four, lacks all sense of fun and whimsy. And then the third is versus Morbius, who is never fun, and it continues in #4 where the X-Men help Spidey defeat the living vampire.
The X-Men still don’t have a home–their own book is still running reprints–so Marvel is trying to figure out if they’re worth reinvesting in.
Trust me, they are.
