Ms. Marvel Annual #1 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Ms. Marvel Annual #1, about which I write the following sentences: "Here, we get a very Spider-Man-centric story involving robots and transforming robots and robots that are actually variants of some rich guy, and, oh yeah, more robots. There's nothing wrong with that, either. Who doesn't like robots? But the whole issue just falls into one cliched trap after another. First we get Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel fighting (because that's what superheroes do before the inevitable team-up). Then we get the endless banter from Brian Reed's Spider-Man (who, by the way, is extra-annoying in this story, and looks like the Ultimate version of the character instead of the mainstream Marvel one). Then we get robots, and an escalation of more robots, then we find out who's behind the robots, and. . . well, it's all just sort of tedious, isn't it? It's just such a by-the-numbers story that I can see why it ended up in a throw-away annual, whether it was always intended as such or not."
