I finished Universe X Vol. 1 and I decided I will never, ever, ever read Vol. 2. This is totally the most unpleasant comic book to read ever. Not the worst comic ever. Not the comic I hate the most. But I've never read a comic that was more BORING and TEDIOUS and FRUSTRATING. Who the hell thinks it's a great idea to make a comic that spends 30 percent of its time explaining the new origins of the Living Mummy and MoonKnight and then KILL THEM? And don't get me started on the useless new characters. Especially the ones that try to have character development. (Yes, I'm looking at you, Charmer.)

Also, this book turns me into a misogynist. Every time I see May Parker I want to slap her in the mouth. And by May Parker I mean "Mayday" Parker. Yes, this series turned Spider-Girl into an irritating brat. I think it deserves to be called a crime against humanity for that alone.

Okay, so she was tolerable in Earth X: Spidey and she has a great costume but for most of the series she's like the prototypical Obnoxious Little Bitch Teenager and most of her "comedic dialogue" is her telling her dad what a complete loser he is. Granted, this series does contain some of the worst Spider-Man dialogue ever, too, but it still doesn't endear me to her.

Oh yeah, and I did read the Paradise X: Heralds thing when it came out. I didn't really like the Spider-Girl there either, because her main character arc was how she became the next Jubilee. And Wolverine/Spunky Young Teenager is pretty much my anti-OTP.
