The Conclusion to the Sinister Six Arc.


Plot

In somewhat jarring beginning from where we left off last issue, The Sinister Six has already captured Octo-Spidey, Sun Girl is presumed dead and Lightmaster is back and an emotional wreck because of his daughter’s presumed death; and they are all on top of the Empire State Building.

Review

The interpersonal relationships are really well written but the action scenes are a total mess. The opening is so jarring I thought I had missed an issue by third page and went back to dig up last issue and check the issue numbers before I continued reading. I also have no idea what Sun Girl’s powers are. Like my assumption until this issue has been she had no powers just gear (namely a jet pack and laser gun) she stole from her dad. Now she may or may not be turning into energy. The art is vague and the narration doesn’t fill us in. Did the teleporter last issue energize her? Is that why everyone thought she was dead at the start issue? Did she then reform and thus the gizmo gave her energy transformation powers? This has happened to her dad before (most famously in the Dazzler team-up) so it’s possible. But it is also possible she was just thrown from the scene of the explosion and fell from the sky when she reappears in this story. The art is vague and there is no narration to clue us in.  Speaking of vague powers Sandman and Mysterio are suddenly manifesting powers I've never seen them have before with no explanation. The art is unclear in several scenes involving the villains. Mysterio and Chameleon also fill similar roles in several scenes.

In addition the ending implies the whole city is going to be mad at Octo-Spidey. But how will anyone know he mind-controlled these guys? Even if the villains said he did it, why would anyone believe them.
