This issue starts off with a narrative by Boomerang, the leader of this new "Sinister Six" team, and he tells us, the readers, what the worst thing about being a costumed criminal super villain is. As the super villains sit around and have a meeting, they have open conversations, mainly about the use of the name of the Sinister Six, considering there are only five members, and this name will confuse people. Scenes like this gives this new series a sense of realism, because some of the responses and reactions from the characters are common in the real world, and we get to see how each team member reacts to certain statements, some more immature than others. The next pages involve Frederick "Fred" Myers (Boomerang), dealing with his lawyers, since he was recently released from prison at the end of issue one.
Even though Boomerang's attorney tells him to "keep his nose clean," he takes his team of super villains to an upscale restaurant that is the talk of the town. This place sells sundae's with diamonds in them for thirty-five grand, martini's with diamonds necklaces for ten-grand. This isn't the big score that Boomerang wants for his team, but for the time being, he figures his team can use a treat. A lot of funny scenes occur here, until Beetle insists that someone goes out and gets Overdrive, who is currently on the lookout. As The Shocker goes out to get Overdrive, he sees Overdrive driving off, and notices The Punisher heading his way.
Once The Punisher comes crashing through the window, the team of super villains run away, leaving Boomerang all alone in the now abandoned restaurant. Once Boomerang finishes his conversation with "The Punisher," he goes back to his hideout and tells the team how he escaped from The Punisher, which gains him so much more respect from his team. But...was he really with The Punisher? This issue ends with the announcement of Fred's new parole officer, which makes Fred vomit. Read this issue to find out all the details.
Once again, the creative team did a wonderful job with this issue. This is a series that people may not give a chance, and it's understandably so, because the main characters aren't on the list of Spider-Man's main foes, but this series gives us an insight on these characters. They show their true villainy when The Punisher showed up, they all ran for their lives and only looked out for themselves, unlike the good guys who would look out for each other. These characters, as a team and individually, are likable and the readers could possibly care about them. Give this new series a try, especially since it's only at issue 2. I give this issue four out of five stars, and it's written by Nick Spencer, artwork by Steve Lieber, and colored by Rachelle Rosenberg. The Superior Foes of Spider-Man #2 has 32 color pages, retails for $2.99, and is available now at your local comic shops and digital formats.
