Subj: Amazing Spider-Man#37: Dates With Destinies (And MJ)

Jameson's having a tough time with his radio show, he's routinely mocked by shock jocks called Chet and Chet. Norah Winters drops in on him and they have lunch together. Norah tells him her job out west convinced her that news podcasts were the way to go, and wants Jameson to join in. Jameson initially refuses, Norah argues Johnah was a pioneer in clickbaiting with his "Spider-Man: Threat or Menace" headline grabbers and because of that, Spidey is in a permanent state of 'cancelled'. Jonah regrets this and tells her that Peter's a hero. Norah shows Jameson something on her phone that convinces Jameson to accept her offer.

Meanwhile, Peter seeks advise from other heroes (even Man-Thing) over what he should do with the clairvoyant. With everyone seemingly OK with it, Peter puts it to use and prevents crimes and catastrophes across the city from happening before they can occur. He then returns to him, Randy and Boomerang's apartment with flowers and chocolates to enjoy a night in with MJ as they watch Janet Van Dyne's Super-villain Makeover season finale over the phone together. Peter ends up falling asleep, spoiling the date.

We then cut to Kindred's hideout, where he decides it's time to show Peter what he can do. He wants Peter to face things such as contrition, penance and confession, but believes he won't accept any of these things. There is a sin he has long forgotten, a sin that will unravel him, and to ensure he faces proper judgement, he resurrects The Sin Eater

My thoughts

Cosy stuff, Spencer touches on Civil War II briefly (and includes humorous cameos from Tony and Carol), before once again embracing the concept of a superhero knowing things well in advance. Obviously knowledge like this is power, but Peter makes a good case for wanting it to also be responsibility, and so far, hasn't abused his gift, but give it time. The MJ dinner date (also set up in Amazing Mary Jane#4) is also very cute, with a precise and perfect Parker Luck climax. Shows that there's some things Peter just can't forsee.

As for Kindred, he seeks to punish Peter for his long-forgotten sin and summons Sin Eater from the dead to pass judgement on Spidey. Makes him look a bit like a Power Rangers villain, summoning 'monsters' to battle Peter.
