I got it on sale for $5 (And no tax either, woooohooo.:), so when I saw it, I just HAD to pick it up. It was written by Gerry Conway, and other than his Death of Gwen Stacy storyline (And his introduction of The Punisher.), he ALSO did a lot of very good and underrated work on Spidey (His run on Web Of and Spectacular had some of my favorite stories, and Tombstone was actually very cool back in the day.). I did read this a few years ago, and I thought that it was pretty good. I thought that Conway did a pretty good Doctor Octopus as well. There is a human side to him, but he's also a murderous villain at the same time(And that's VILLAIN, not anti-hero or anti-villain. Writers, take note.). Spectacular #173 (Also with Doc Ock and wriiten by Conway.) was really good, too.
Question though, this establishes that Mary Jane always knew that Peter was Spider-Man. How often was this brought up? I imagine that this completely changed after Brand New Day. By the way, is MJ still in the Iron Man books? Thanks.
