Great way of tying all 3 series together. Instead of putting these characters together for the sake of seeing them together they each help develop their respective character. I especially like the interaction between Cyclops and Bruce in this issue and how it reflects the history of both characters rather than just a superficial "good job! we won!" dialogue. 


I bought all three issues of this "Arms of the Octopus" story and I really enjoyed every single one of them.  THIS is what a comic book crossover event should be like: a clearly written, logical plot about characters we care about, that actually allows the characters to grow and develop within the story, with an actual resolution at the end, and something that doesn't require the reader to trudge through years of backstory just to understand what's going on.  I do have to admit that I was unaware that Spider-Man now has the brain of Otto Octavius when I read the first issue, but that was cleared up by the end of the story and it didn't hamper my enjoyment of the mini-series in the slightest.  Finally, Mike Costa's characterization of young Beast through all three issues was spot-on.  You really get to see the potential of the character and you realize that Hank McCoy doesn't need blue fur to be interesting.
