Top of the list. His Doc Ock is the definitive Otto.

Agreed. He did a lot to put Ock back in the running for the title of Spidey's arch-enemy.

Wrote a pretty good Hobgoblin/Roderick Kingsley, too.

How about..........Pym?

He wrote him in Avengers Initiative and Might Avengers right? I liked how handled him. I know in AI it was Skrull but I'm not sure Slott new that when he first started the series since that wad revealed in Bendis's Secret Invasion.

Black Cat is the reason I hate Dan Slott as a Spidey writer. Literal DECADES of established characterization and character growth chucked out the window because Doc Ock fucking punched her one time. Fuck you, Slott.

Yeah he dropped the ball on Black Cat. On the other end though i liked how he handled Mockingbird and he made me interested in Silver Sable.

Not being a Pym fan I thought Slott's aggressively pro-Pym handling was annoying and over the top, but I was curious to see how you guys felt looking back.

I have been thinking about grabbing his recent Silver Surfer run, I get good vibes from it, but maybe that's just the Allred art. Any thoughts there?

I've liked about 95% of his work, but definitely agree that his story wrecked Black Cat. Editorial edict or not, she got screwed, much like Carol Danvers did by Bendis.

I hadn't heard that Felicia's heel turn came from above. I always just assumed it was Slott being edgy.

I thought it was in his book that her dramatic heel turn happened. It was extra odd because Ock didn't seem to have an issue banging a less hot woman who wanted Peter Parker. "I'm going to punch one of the flat-out hottest women jumping around NYC because she wants this body enough to kiss me!"
