Weekly Marvel Review: May 29, 2019 (Week 22)

Kraven and Spider-Man’s latest deadly dance reaches its conclusion. While his plan does not end the way he had hoped, the world’s greatest hunter goes out on top by earning an Antagonist of the Week in the Fantasy Comic League with eight review points including the Character Development for his death. Peter Parker earns five points in the top Solo title for week which earns 48 points thanks to the continued team-up of the beastly villains trapped in Arcade’s murderous machination. The Superior Spider-Man, with the help of Doctor Strange, lives up to his name and outscores Peter Parker in his personal book, but his title finishes in third for the weekly among Solo titles with 22 points behind Amazing and the Immortal Hulk‘s 25.

Miles Morales, the young Spider-Man, continues his joint effort to take down Morgan le Fay in Marvel Rising, the top Team book from the week. The Inhumans, led by Iso, stand against le Fay at the gates of New Attilan and help push Rising to a 41-point finish. The “War of the Realms” comes to the Fantastic Four’s front door on Yancy Street in their 32-point runner up Team title. “Realms” once again takes the top Event book, this time with the anthology series War Scrolls. The main story pits an Asgardian-upgraded Wilson Fisk against the all-seeing Daredevil and includes a back-up short story featuring Loki and Wiccan, his former Young Avenger ally. The book earns 37 review points.
