    1. WHAT: Super Villains AnonymousWHERE: Our Lady of Saint Anna Dutch Reformed Church, 7609 Bay Ridge Ave. BrooklynWHEN: Sundays, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PMBob: Hi, my name is Bob. I’m a reformed super villain.The group: Hi Bob!Bob: I was once First Cobra Lieutenant of H.Y.D.R.A. Hail, Hyd… Sorry, old habits die hard. Heh. Yeah, well, my doctor said I had to give up the dream after my eighth concussion. Blurry vision, headaches, short term memory loss… (long pause) Hi, my name is Bob. I’m a reforme [...]

    2. The first volume of The Superior Foes of Spider-Man delivers what you would expect from a humorous second-banana-villain-team-up title: lots of banter, conflict, incompetence, pain, jail time, cowardice, back-stabbing, etc. The thing is, though, it's pretty funny! Spider-Man barely makes an appearance in this book, but fear not, true believer: Nick Spencer finds countless appropriately non-heroic angles that allow our baddies to "shine." I liked his writing much better here than in Morning Glori [...]

    3. So I had to read this one, because every other word out of Jeff's mouth is Sweaty Hippo Manboobs, and I needed to find out what the hell he was talking about.Me: How you been lately, Jeff?Jeff: Sweaty Hippo Manboobs!Me: Read anything good lately?Jeff: Sweaty Hippo Manboobs!Me: Mrs. Jeff doing ok?Me: She's fine, thanks. Sweaty Hippo Manboobs!And now I understand.If you can't read the text, suck it up and find the comic. It's worth it.Alrighty, this one had been so hyped up to me that I actually h [...]

    4. I blame cynical marketing for making cynics of us all (or at least me)! Superior Spider-Man has been a huge bestseller for Marvel and spinoff titles were inevitable. So when I saw the multiple Superior titles appearing – Team-Up, Foes, and Carnage – I stayed away thinking they’d be derivative knock-offs. And it’s that attitude that kept me away from one of Marvel’s hidden gems from the last year: Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber’s Superior Foes of Spider-Man (a series which actually has [...]

    5. A D-List character buddy read with my Shallow Comic Reading pals!Getting the Band Back Together was pretty damn good when all was said and done. Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars for me. Comic book humor is a hard sell for this guy as I typically prefer my comedy classless and of the “blue” variety, but this PG-13 routine worked pretty well overall.Long story short, a bunch of D-list villains (Boomerang, Shocker (Heh), Beetle, Overdrive, and Speed Demon) come together in a desperate attempt to [...]

    6. I didn't really know what to expect out of Superior Foes. But I've been really enjoying Superior Spider-Man (almost, but not quite, over my surprise) so I thought it was worth a try. Was it ever! Reading it, I was reminded of Fraction's Hawkeye. Incredibly high praise, and deserved. Like Hawkeye, it has great action scenes, snappy dialog, and developed characters. And it can be hilarious. I don't want to fill this review with quotes, but I will say this: the Owl waxing poetic about his Prius mad [...]

    7. Spider-Man gets all the attention, but what about his foes. What about the people whose bad behavior makes Spidey a hero? Guys like Fred Myers The Boomerang. This man was a pro baseball player until he snorted his chances away.His second career as a supervillain was just as questionable.Now Fred's fresh out of jail and he needs his crew to pull off a job.Fred needs better friends.Comedy is in the eye of the beholder. What some people find incredibly hilarious, I often fall asleep duringI still d [...]

    8. I've heard a lot of good reviews for this - surprisingly good reviews for a writer that exceeded expectations, and an underappreciated artist who is exceeding people's awareness of him.This reads like an episode of worst-luck-ever-for-the-sad-sacks. It's hilarious - Boomerang finds a way to get (five of) the Sinister Six back together for one big score and stumbles through the shambles of a life (not quite) beyond the law. What I love most about this book is how down-to-earth *normal* their dial [...]

    9. OK this book is funnier than I had expected. In fact, humour might be the thing that keeps this title afloat. With all the gritty reboots and some characters having 6+ series each (X-Men, Batman) it's a welcome change to see some serious D-listers.(Poor Shocker, he used to be at least B-list)This is in the vein of Matt Fraction's Hawkeye, and a little of Mark Waid's Daredevil. Books focused on real characters, and how funny super types can be.Boomerang (so named because he was born in Australia) [...]

    10. I think we all secretly want our own Heisenburg moment. Which is why Boomerang is my new favorite superhero. Well, I guess he's not very super. And not really a hero either. But whatever he is, he's my favorite. I actually saw a Boomerang action figure the other day at Walmart. I couldn't help wonder if this comic is why it even exists. I mean, who else but a comic book dork would possibly be clamoring for a cheesy looking villain toy? I should have took a picture and included it in my "review". [...]

    11. I had a stupid grin on my face the entire time I was reading this. Freaking hilarious! I love graphic novels, but I don't own an awful lot of them. I would buy this. Seriously so funny. The cover of this has a quote on it that I agree with completely:"Frankly, this book is awesome. The art and writing complement each other incredibly well."-ComicVine

    12. Throw together a crew of five sad-sack C-List Spidey Villains to star in their own series and what do you get?Hilarity!Seriously, folks, this is without a doubt the funniest Marvel comic I think I've readever? Even Fraction's excellent Hawkeye books get weighed down by character-building moments where you feel bad for Clint, Kate, etc but no such worries here, all five of the Sinister Six (yes, I'm aware of what I just wrote) are such conniving cretins that the reader feels no remorse in laughin [...]

    13. Loved this one. It focuses on a bunch of Spider-Man's lesser foes, such as Shocker and Boomerang, as they go about their everyday, humdrum lives, trying to put together the next big score. If that sounds dull, well the whole thing is written with a very sarcastic humor that makes it a lot of fun. I was reminded a lot of Donald E. Westlake's Dortmunder novels, about a hapless gang of criminals, while reading this. Who would have thought that Nick Spencer, writer of the impenetrable Morning Glorie [...]

    14. I can't remember when I last laughed so much - yes, even out loud - while reading a book. A fresh, funny take on 'being a villain' in the Marvel U, this book is right up there with Fraction & Aja's Hawkeye in terms of fun & creativity. Definitely different, in a great way.I hope the same level of energy & wit is maintained in the two subsequent volumes

    15. This book is utterly amazing. its easily in my top ten, maybe even top 5. its one of the best marvel books I've ever read. i don't even wanna leave a review just read this that's all I'm gonna say, you must read this entire series if you truly love comics it's phenomenal and terribly short.

    16. This is Nick Spencer at his best. It's a terrific caper book, a great look at the character of Spider-Man's less powerful foes, and overall a funny bit of meta-comic storytelling.

    17. The Sinister Six (yes, there are only five of them right now) are up to their usual hijinks. What that means is that they are looking for a job(criminal of course) and staying one step ahead of the law and their enemies.This is a different take on telling stories from Spider-Man's world. It isn't very serious, in fact it is downright silly at times. It makes you wonder how these guys ever gave Spider-Man a run for his money. They spend almost as much time backstabbing each other as they do commi [...]

    18. Nick Spencer nails the heist book with a solid super powered spin in the first volume of Superior Foes of Spider-Man. This book is brilliantly hilarious, smartly plotted, and gorgeously illustrated by Steve Lieber. Characters come first in this story, taking d-list throw-aways like Boomerang and Speed Demon and turning them into real, fleshed out, and even occasionally likable people. The new Beetle also shines brightly here, with a story centered around her on the horizon. Every fan of crime co [...]

    19. I've read the first two volumes of this series after reading everywhere how good it is And it still managed to surprise me. This comic is consistently smart and funny on every page and there's not a weak issue to be found. Most fun I've had reading a comic in a while. There's no barrier to entry, so just hop in and enjoy the adventures of a pack of losers in NYC. And don't let the title fool you, Spider-man has nothing to do with this book. The 'superior' foes just happen to be d-list villains t [...]

    20. This was EXCELLENT. Hilarious, with really startling turns and fantastic art. I like it a bazillion times better than Morning Glories, which I like a fair bit.

    21. five stars just for the hell of it. i like seeing the B-Listers and benchwarmers get there due. a lot of these baddies have been in the Spidey canon for a while, but Nick Spencer gives them the Rogues (DC) treatment - bad guys who don’t have any aspirations for heady stuff like world domination. nah, these guys want to pull a heist and go grab some drinks. Boomerang try’s to hold this dopey group together and the hijinks ensue. thin on plot, but layered-up on the fun. give it a shot, whydont [...]

    22. This really got me thinking . . . who needs heroes? There aren't very many at all to be found in this book and it's pretty dang good. It's kind of a comedy, kind of a crime-thing. It works well. I'm looking forward to reading more.

    23. Boomerang one of the greatest villains in MARVEL historyp that's right he is truly one of the greats alongside the likes of Green Goblin, Doctor Doom and Magneto; well that's at least what I think now after reading this book, its that damn good!As the story goes we follow Frederick Myers a.k.a Boomerang. Tired of scraping by as a washed up d-list villain he wants to make the big-time and joins forces with fellow Spidey foes Beetle, Overdrive, Speed Demon and Shocker forming the new "Sinister Six [...]

    24. Great book! Real laugh out loud read. This one flies in the face of what every other comic tries to do with villians. These guys aren't anti-heroes, misunderstood, or just trying to get out of a bad situation. These are people who have decided that crime- be it robbery, kidnapping, murder- is the best way to get ahead in this world. These people are often true ***holes.Now don't get me wrong. That does not make this book bad- in fact, that is what truly makes this book work. These guys unapologe [...]

    25. This was pretty enjoyable. It has the same feel as Fraction's Hawkeye, meaning you really dig into the main character's personal life and inner thoughts. The difference being this is a fairly forgettable low-tier villain and he's, well, a loser! There are quite a few jokes and I did laugh out loud a few times. The enjoyment here is the same as characters such as Gil from the Simpsons or Stuart from the Big Bang Theory: there's something about seeing a loser pointing out how much of a loser they [...]

    26. Had been hearing about it for a long time in all the communities, vlogs etc. So decided to pick it up, and now I cannot wait to read the next volume. The first issue may not do the magic, but as the story progresses this series kinda grows on you. Hilarious characters, lots of pop culture references and nice artwork. Highly recommended. Readers don't need to know anything about the Marvel Universe before reading it.

    27. This book is hilarious. Every issue is jam-packed with dry wit, callbacks to obscure Marvel history, and subtle visual gags. It helps that Nick Spencer has written a villain (Boomerang) so relatable and charming that one can't help but root for him. I'm definitely in for the next volume.
