The Superior Spider-Man #9

Everyone loves their local Spider-Man. However, earning the praise of the people, and even the key to the city, isn't enough to satisfy our hero. Before launching into the next arc, The Superior Spider-Man #9 features Otto struggling with the recent loses during The War of the Realms and the limitations even a "superior" Spider-Man must accept.

Featuring an appearance by Spider-Man, whose job in recent years has morphed into playing a den mother to the various other spider heroes across the Marvel Universe, the former adversaries bicker and talk through Otto's pain. While the interlude doesn't fix his problem, it does allow Peter Parker to offer his stamp of approval for the life Otto has set himself up with on the West Coast.

The comic also features a brief encounter between Otto and the ridiculous Z-list villain Tuner D. Century who Otto is able to take out some of his frustration prior to his heart-to-heart with that "other" Spider-Man. Worth a look.
