    As I'm sure is the case with a lot of guys my age, I loved reading comics when I was younger. Still do every now and then. Anyways, outside of the obvious ones of Batman and Spider-Man Superman and stuff like that, one of my other favorites was all of the stories Dark Horse Comics would come up with using various movie properties.

    Spider-Man is handled really well, with probably the most accurate and well-executed film version of Peter Parker (even if it is in a pretty short amount of time). Characters that I've never cared much for, like Ant-Man and Scarlet Witch, are played perfectly here and at the…
