This book is one of a series of Scholastic Australia colouring and activity books which essentially differ by nothing more than the page count and the design on the cover.

This is the absolute basic "super-cheap colouring book" version. It contains 24 black and white line art pages.

In General...

The same line art has already appeared in at least six other books already. The pages are a random mix of Spider-Man, Thor, Avengers, and Wolverine/X-Men. No attempt is made to produce a consistent story.

Spider-Man appears in approximately six of the pages.

A few of the pages are "character galleries", constructed (it appears to me) by cropping individual characters out of scenes and then pasting them onto a blank page. It's an effort to at least "rework" the images, but it's purely a token gesture. There is really nothing new here.

Overall Rating...

Even the rock-bottom NZ$2 price and bright new cover art can't save this tired old re-hash from a two-webs rating.
