    Since its debut last year as part of ‘Superior Spider-Month,’ Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber’s ‘Superior Foes of Spider-Man’ has been one of my favorite Marvel comics on my pull list, even though the web-slinger wasn’t even in it.

    As a very enthusiastic elf once said, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. That’s why you often see musicals released in theaters around that time of year.
