So I want to talk about the best scene for me which am the first few pages but before I get into that, I want to talk about this issue as a whole; Great beginning, great mid but bad end. What i mean by this is, at the end, we get a very familiar comic book super villain ending where one bad guy, in this case bad girl, meets with another villain and offers a truce and partnership in order to take down their common cause.

I mean this was how the sinister 6 was created and they couldn’t take down Spider-Man. How’s the cat and electro gunna do what 6 super powered villains couldn’t? I don’t mind them teaming up, but to have it as an ending to issue 3 was a bit of a letdown. But this is just my opinion, please let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

Alright so lets discuss what made this comic worked for me. I love the supporting characters more than Spider-Man in this issue. Jameson getting a talk show and we know that he is gunna spread propaganda and make Spider-Man look like a menace. Back to good old times if you ask me.

Also, Anna maria now potentially has access to doc ocks intellect in the form of his robot. Wouldn’t it be cool if dock ock commanded the robot to fully obey Anna? This would give Spider-Man such a new dynamic that is never done before. I mean yes, Spider-Man is friends with some of the most intelligent people in the world, but this is Anna, his co-partner c0-owner of parker industries. I’m really enjoying the character of Anna maria Marconi and i hope the writers don’t do anything silly and write her out of the Spider-Man stories anytime soon.

Ok so finally, let’s talk about silk, the second person bit by the radioactive spider. We find out that her name is Cindy and she is compassionate and has empathy. Also that was Ezekiel who spoke with her. Wholly crap I’m now super excited. Ok for those who don’t know. Allow me to tell you who Ezekiel is:

so Ezekiel is a super rich business man whom, at a younger age, gained powers similar to Spider-Man. He had a heroes heart and wanted to do good but he got wrapped up in his business and never took the time to save lives much like Spider-Man did. Now Ezekiel was the one person who told peter parker that their powers were more than a science experiment gone wrong and a radioactive spider bite could cause spiderlike powers. He explained the nature of animal totems: people who gain supernatural abilities from a mystic link with certain animals.

Ezekiel suggested that the spider that bit peter was not mutated by the radiation, but actually trying to give peter its powers before the radiation killed it. So, last we heard, Ezekiel is dead. So now the question is, was that just a recording from a long time ago?  Or did Ezekiel somehow survived and is still in the land of the living? What do you guys think, let me know in the comments below.
