Like him or not, Tom Cruise doesn’t generally make bad movies. His flicks are slick productions, designed to be Tom Cruise vehicles. Oblivion, Cruise’s return to sci-fi, is no different, but is it any good?
It’s kind of funny…Ock-Spidey has, for me anyways, been more appealing in books where the character teams with the rest of the Marvel U. than in his own title.

A couple of years ago, Marvel put out a book called “Girl Comics,” which featured some of their most recognizable female characters put together by female creators.
