There’s a great story trapped in this good one, so whilst this review may read harsher I’m moreso lamenting lost potential. During the battle with Venom, Yu is able to give his mask to the stunned Venom, reminding him of who he is.

He happens to come across an abandoned Spider-Man Costume and puts it on, thinking he could be like the Web-Slinger, but it would be fate that would make the fanboy face the most difficult question he has evaded, do I have the power to change my destiny? He is striking out socially, failing classes, and lacking confidence in himself, but that changes when he happens to come across one of Spider-Man’s costumes abandoned in an alleyway.

I liked the overall message and meaning behind the story but it was a bit basic and predictable without a lot of new things to offer. But when he finds Spidey's suit abandoned in an alley, he winds up taking up the mantle while Spiderman is among the missing. We meet Emma, a girl who Yu saved and she figures out who Yu really is and takes it upon herself to become his aide. Sure, having an Asian-American kid involved in the world is cool, but why do there need to be so many guys in the suit? But he is game and really does try to help while waiting for the real spidey to get back and take up his suit and mantle.

Overall this was an enjoyable read, and like the author, I hope it's given a chance to continue as a series. This is a fun and interesting take on both what it means to be Spider-Man but also how inspiring a character he is. I was surprised by how the heartfelt nature of Spider-Man: Fake Red had really affected me by the conclusion, but I think it perfectly drove home that while our teen years can often be problematic, within us lies a certain quiet potential for achieving the unexpected or even heroic given the right circumstance. An awkward teenager puts on Spider-Man’s suit, but quickly learns being a hero isn’t all photo ops and social media likes.You may block cookies via standard web-browser settings, but this site may not function correctly without cookies. Liar Revealed: Yu thinks this'll be a problem if Emma finds out he isn't really Spider-Man, worrying that it'll make her want nothing to do with him. Together they find a way to seperate the Venom from Peter and Yu passes the mask to Peter telling him he is his hero and the true spiderman. Still, with the real Spider-Man nowhere to be found, the city needs someone to save it… (simonandschuster, n,d). He idolizes Spider-Man while he rock climbs, and when he leaves the gym he likes a picture of Spider-Man on his phone.

Spider-Man's character is written well and you grow to care about Yu and his supporting characters as well.stars, rounding down until I get my own physical copy of this so I can re-read again in print and see if it should be bumped up to the full five. I'm a dude trying to get in to Spiderman comics (in 10 yrs I'll be middle age, im probs too old for this but whatever. It had me on the edge of my seat and many times, the tension was so great, I had to put it down and pick it up after I had calmed down some.
