Subj: Meanwhile in The Spectacular Spider-Man #298...

Peter Parker - The Spectacular Spider-Man 298 (2018)

The series has been quite decent so far but this installment just felt all kinds of off - if not wrong...

Spider-man chronology is crazy. He's got Avengers, ASM, PPtSS, Spidey&DP, etc. Typical for most MU characters who star in more than one book. Who can fit this arc in? Marvel should do something novel in 2018 and clearly lay out Peter Parker's titles sequentially.

Human Torch breaking him out of Police custody. And being asshat disrespectful too. They're not all Grey Blade.

Teresa (and Johnny) getting loaner Ant-Man gear just to facilitate a lame/fantastical jailbreak. That's a thing now spare Ant-Man suits? For fugitives? And they got 'em from Ant-Man?! Langs's in space. Pymtron is evil and hiding in plain sight. Black Ant is probably broken beyond repair at the bottom of a well. C'mon, Editors!

Shocker is tossed into the the story. For no GOOD reason. His appearance completely undermines his interesting potentially more legit direction in this week's Uncanny Avengers. Whether this is before or after that issue, Chronology Cops! He's at the supervillain's Bar With No Name. The place now has a name?! "JAVELYNN'S" But doesn't that undermine that whole concept of a secret hide out too? It should be like a M*A*S*H unit where it relocates everytime it attracts attention of press or heroes.

Black Panther is tossed into the mix too. Just because he "happens to be in the neighborhood". He's quick to offer asylum which is his Royal perogative. Obviously, he must trust Spidey implicitely here, empathize with Teresa's plight in the news, and has the Diplomatic Immunity factor. Still he is back in NYC, maybe it would have felt more organic if he was vestedly interested in the supervillain plotline or note his "business in town" was Triskelion or post-Ultimates related.

This chapter wasn't completely horrible... but also it's the worst of the short run so far.
