My Amazing Spider-Man #700 review

OK, I almost feel silly doing this, because by the end of the day tomorrow. there will be a MILLION Amazing Spider-Man #700 reviews. But, since I was able to sneak this one in today, I thought, why the hell not? And, Spidey's always been my favorite super-hero.
Now, I won't give away any spoilers(until Thursday)as not to get Dan Slott upset on twitter, BUT, I'll do my best to get the point of the issue across to you. So, leading up to this we had(MINOR spoiler warnings)Doc Ock and Peter Parker switching bodies. And Doc Ock's body is in BAD shape. And I mean BAD. So, this issue is a great race against the clock issue(typical of some of the greatest Spider-Man stories)to make things right before things go past the point of no return.
-Now, my biggest problem with issue is the villain. It's painfully obvious that Dan Slott's favorite Spider-Man bad guy is Doctor Octopus. And that's fine. But let's be honest. Spider-Man's great villain is Norman Osborn. The Green Goblin. Always has been, always will be. BUT, there's a problem with Norman Osborn right now. He's a good guy. Kinda. Let's just say he's busy. Busy being a Dark Avenger or Thunderbolt or something else. Anyway, I'm pretty sure Slott couldn't use him(I could be wrong), but he did do the next big thing. All I WILL tell you about this issue is that it would have been an out and out right instant classic if Norman would've been the villain in this issue. I mean TRULY world changing. As it is, this is a pretty fantastic issue. One that's a worthy ending to 50 years of story telling. It's bitter sweet, charming, heart warming, action-packed and has more cliffhangers than an Indiana Jones movie. If you only read one comic this week(and there's only like 9 coming out)make it THIS ONE!!!! Overall, this comic gets an A+, a 10 out of 10, 5 stars, ect. What I'm trying to say is that it's AWESOME!!!!!!!
