BOOK NAME: Spider-Man: The Ultimate Guide
After you read this book, you’ll look at Spider-man in a totally different way. I thought I knew a lot about Super-man, including the fact that his real-life name, Peter Parker, includes my first name, but as I started to look through this book I found out a lot more about this super hero. One of the strange things that I learned is that when Peter Parker marries Mary Jane, she gets tired of him being Spider-man all the time so Peter takes on four more super-hero identities: Ricochet, Dusk, Hornet, and Prodigy. Dusk spies on villains in the underworld, Ricochet throws gold disks at his enemies to stun them, Hornet carries a 50-pound jet pack on his back so he can fly, and Prodigy reminded of Superman.
I didn’t read this book from front to back. It would say something like “He climbed walls (see ‘Wall Climbing’ on page 146) to get to Green Goblin.” That made it really hard to put down. Everything tied into everything and I was jumping from page to page.
Some of the characters and events explained in this book have to do with other super heroes such as the Incredible Hulk, the X-Men gang, and Superman. People who aren’t interested in MARVEL comic heroes probably wouldn’t like this book. It was really hard to write this review because it is organized like an encyclopedia. If you like super heroes, I really recommend it.
