I totally think Johnny Storm should date Spider-Woman. It would be incredibly weird, but it would work better than him dating random super-models. I’m sure Peter will freak out over it, though. That’s what he does. Now the question is, why are the police questioning Aunt May about Spider-Man? Are they trying to capture him for some reason? Does this have something to do with the school board? Very weird.
This was weird. You’d think that the fact that the symbiote can make exact genetic copies of people, complete with all of their memories and personality, would be a bigger deal. I mean, scientists should be crawling all over that! The fact that they aren’t makes it painfully clear that it was just a plot device to bring Gwen back to life without actually have to exhume her body and resurrect her. It’s stupid and annoying.
Why is Carnage Gwen Stacy? Or why does it think that it’s Gwen Stacy anyway? And if this all happened a while ago, why weren’t Iron Man and the others looking for her when they were dealing with Venom? And Nick Fury was here last issue, so why is he gone now? I’m confused. Marvel is great at making me feel like I’m missing at least half of the story.
Seriously, if the “suit” is that dangerous why doesn’t Fury want to destroy it? There are so many problems with that. The Ultimates kind of showed up out of the blue there. Why did they suddenly decide to get involved? And what’s with the label “One Month Ago” when all of the action took place within 24 hours? Very confusing!
That was a lot of unnecessarily confusing lead-up to “Spider-Man becomes Venom again”. The most mind – boggling thing about this comic is that it consistently points out the things that are inconsistent or just don’t make sense. If you know your story doesn’t make sense, why don’t you fix it (or at the very least not point it out!)?
Wow, Liz does not look like either of her parents. I’m glad that Peter revealed himself to her. I think that it helped. I do have to wonder what she’ll do now, though. I mean, going to Xavier’s school is lovely, but it’s not the only thing in the world. I just feel like Liz is going to need more than just that.
Crey Industries is an interesting “villain”. They are evil with PR who to spin them as the real heroes. Evil in plain sight! It’s an interesting idea that could be a whole set of complex stories on it’s own. It’s very Lex Luthor-like in a way. I’m enjoying reading this comic a lot. I’d forgotten how good it was and I’m sad it didn’t run longer.
And the heroes are all vindicated! That is a really interesting approach for a villain group in the City of Heroes setting to take. I mean, if a hero was out working alone, it could take a really long time for anyone to even notice they were missing, much less even begin to try and figure out what happened to them!
Well that didn’t go well. I almost wonder if the judge was under the control of or on the same side as the bad guys who were jamming the emergency transport signals. I admire the bravery of the heroes who left to help Eddie, though, knowing that it was the right thing to do but also that it would get them into serious trouble with the law.
Are these villains in the game? I don’t remember ever seeing anything like them. They sound like an intriguing group, though – their power comes from stealing other people’s essences or souls, which they symbolically represent by dressing in Venice Carnival style masks and costumes. And they’re an old group, passed down through centuries. There’s so much storytelling potential with that!
