Review: Avenging Spider-Man #7 - KITTY CATS!!! 1Continuing on in the mighty Marvel Team-Up style, Avenging Spider-Man #7 sees Spider-Man teaming up with She-Hulk (the green one) to fight the ever-menacing threat of kitty cats.

No, really.

The issue opens with Spider-Man and She-Hulk taking down a weird giant fish thing in the sewer that had menaced city workers for weeks before She-Hulk, a lawyer by day, has to head off to a “work thing.”  Awkwardly attempting to accompany She-Hulk as a date, Spider-Man is turned down–but not before finding out that the “work thing” is an Egyptian gallery opening at a museum.

Seeing suspicious-looking girls in cloaks heading into the museum, Spidey tries to investigate and runs into She-Hulk again.  Somewhere along the way, She-Hulk sees a statue of an ancient Egyptian cat goddess, which decides to choose her as its herald and causes her to sprout a green tail.

Overall, Kathryn and Stuart Immonen provide Avenging Spider-Man with another fun, light-hearted Spider-Man team-up–as well as the official Marvel origin story for cats on the book’s recap page (well, the book’s editor might have come up with that, but still…).  Anyways, the banter between Spidey and She-Hulk is fantastic, as is Spider-Man’s solution to the whole cat goddess issue.

If you’re a fan of fun, not-too-serious Spider-Man stories and don’t want to worry about too much continuity–or if you’re a fan of Spider-Man in general–this done-in-one is perfect for you.

Essentially Peter Parker with all the charm of Wolverine, he's a DC-based B2B journalist who occasionally writes about music and pop culture in his free time. His love for comics, metal, and videogames has also landed him gigs writing for the A.V. Club, Comic Book Resources, and Louisville Magazine. Keep him away from the whiskey, and don't ask him how much he hates the Spider-Man movies unless you're ready to hear about his overarching plot for a six-film series that would put the Dark Knight trilogy to shame.
