Overpowered Beings: Cosmic Spider-Man Is #MarvelsMostPowerfulHero

 

OVERPOWERED BEINGS

IvaN The UnStoppable

IN COSMIC HIERARCHY

THE ENIGMA FORCE CHOSE SPIDER-MAN

IvaN The UnStoppable

During the Copper Age, Marvel Comics greatly expanded Spider-Man‘s universe: a new love interest in Felicia Hardy, a new and great black costume and even, new powers. Over the years, Spider-Man’s super powers expanded. In Acts Of Vengeance: Spider-Man & The X-Men, the Enigma Force chooses Spider-Man as the new Captain Universe.

Though the story arc was temporary, it shook the status quo in an impressive way.

Post-Secret Wars, Spider-Man fought an increasing darkness from his alien symbiote. At a time when the hero had finally settled into his marriage with Mary Jane. When Peter least expected it, an accident with an extra-dimensional energy source at Empire State University gave him a serious power-up.

For a time, Peter was plagued by frequent spider-sense shocks and became Cosmic Spider-Man. Read our review to find out about this story arc.

OVERPOWERED, COSMIC SPIDER-MAN HAS SKYFATHER POTENTIAL

IvaN The UnStoppable

Notably, Spider-Man possesses the proportionate super strength, super speed, agility and senses of a spider. Usually, the hero is a Street Level or Team Wrecker in the Power Hierarchy. According to Essential Official Handbook of The Marvel Universe Vol. 2, Deluxe Edition, Spider-Man can lift 10 tons.

In Amazing Spider-Man (1989) #327, Cosmic Spider-Man showcased why he is a Class 100 powerhouse. In a battle against Magneto, the Champion of the Enigma Force effortlessly lifted a cruise ship.

Really, Cosmic Spider-Man showcased Skyfather potential. In fact, he showed the power of reality-warping as he created a lightning bolt by wishing.

Among his super powers are: Planetary Level super strength, super speed, nigh invulnerability, flight, super vision, telescopic vision, super hearing, matter manipulation, energy projection and energy absorption. Later, we will see why he may be #MarvelsMostPowerfulHero.

In the issue, Cosmic Spider-Man effortlessly defeated Nebula, a being powered by an energy source of near-infinite power.

'Amazing Spider-Man' (1989) #329.

DIALOGUE

In many respects, David Michelinie’s dialogue is all about action. Indeed, the words get straight to the point and are mostly about descriptions. In fact, Michelinie’s Spider-Man is all about action and dealing efficiently with his enemy.

In addition, the villain of the story who acts behind the scenes gives serviceable lines. For the most part, this is more or less the weaker element of the comic.

PLOT

Generally, Acts of Vengeance and Spider-Man’s arc focus on Loki’s recent manipulations of Marvel’s top villains. Really, Spider-Man’s arc progresses well as he faces different villains such as Graviton, Magneto and the Tri-Sentinel.

In the latter issues, the purpose of Spider-Man new powers is revealed. In Amazing Spider-Man #329, Spider-Man becomes Captain Universe. Indeed, Michelinie changes the Spider-Man status quo to the fans’ elation.

CHARACTERIZATION

Perhaps, the best aspect of the comic. Though the villain’s motivations are uninteresting, he plays an important part in moving the story along. And in one blast of energy, Captain Universe is activated!

Furthermore, the writer does a good job at highlighting Spider-Man’s humanity despite his unlimited power. Also, Spider-Man’s cast like Mary Jane appears in the comic.

ART

Equally, the most enjoyable element of the comic. Importantly, Erik Larsen’s panels are kinetic, expressive and focus on action and tension. As matter of fact, the villain has ample space to shine with large close-ups of the face.

Meanwhile, Larsen depicts Spider-Man and his agile body with strength, explosiveness and power. Finally, the battle with Tri-Sentinel is well executed. In fact, the splash page of the final act is memorable.

VERDICT

Finally, the comic shakes up the Spider-Man status quo. Nothing less was expected from the creative team. Definitely, this storyline is one of the greatest Spider-Man stories ever told.

RECOMMENDATION:

Definitely, collect either the trade paperback or the single issues.
