Amazing Spiderman Issue 685
Ends of The Earth Part 4
Battling the Sandman in the previous issue seemed like an easy feat for Spiderman and his new teammates Silver Sable and The Black Widow. Can they stop another member of The Sinister Six and ultimately defeat Doctor Octopus and his mad scheme?
Spiderman is quickly dismayed when he finds out that the organization isn't on his side of things.
Later Spiderman finds out from his comrades in Horizon, that Doc Ock's technology lives up to it's promise of ending global warming once and for all. Spiderman is still adamant of course, that Doc Ock has another motive up his sleeve. Meanwhile, deep in the depths of Doc Ock's lair, is there dissension brewing within the thinning ranks of his team? Find out as Doc Ock bolsters his ranks on a global level, reaching out to international recruits for his plan. Unfortunately, are Spiderman and his own troops too late when they journey to another satellite manufacturing factory?
Amazing Spiderman issue 685 is another fantastic romp in the Ends of The Earth storyline by writer Dan Slott. Despite a break in the action mid-issue, things pick up again and Slott delivers another masterful cliffhanger ending. Visual chores by artist Humberto Ramos come off as cartoony-ish but are stunning nonetheless. Certain panels are just mind-blowing and scream pure intensity, capturing Slott's script well.
Note: the variant cover incorrectly lists this issue as "Part Five".
Final verdict: A
