Previous Post

Although the books are a day delayed this week, my store gets a couple of samples early so I went early and got one.

First, Not enough story (24 pages $3.99) My two problems are so few paages are together.other than the beginning it's apage of story then an advertisement. Marvel might not be able to control that.

Second (filler) 11 pages of background. Nothing new there as far as I can tell. Anyone who reads the book regularly knows this stuff and it's already been printed in the Marvel handbook to Spiderman. All that stuff is the reason for the $3.99 price.

Now the story:

I thought the focus on paying for May's care was good and the dialogue was believable. My only gripe was the doctor'smention of moving May to the "Charity Care ward" Hospitals have charity care wards?

The doctor recognizing Peter wasn't any surprise as he has been in the news all the time. His wife still has her redhair andis well known. Certainly if the doctor recognized them others in the hospital would. The doctor also showed them them newspaper with the headline "SpidermanUnmasked"That papermust be months old. What they don't have new papers andmagazinein the waiting room?

The Iron Man Spidey fight. Well done. Parts of the fight have been shown in that free comic book day issue but here we see the rest.

Jarvis' arrival was a pleasant surprise.I had forgotten about himandMay developing a relationship.I knew earlier that Stark would foot the bill regardless.

I really liked this issue. That said, I have to admit that it's very hard for Marvel writers to disappoint me. The hint in the book was Peter's thinking that he will do whatever it takes to helpMay "even if it means storming the gates of hell itself" Sounds like Mephisto but all the posters here have been indicating Loki.

Also on future issues of the storyline Dr. Strange is pictured. I don't think Strange is going to want to help Peter. Just recently in World War Hulk he was asked to banish Hulk to another faraway place but he refused saying something like "We created the problemwe have to deal with it."

Depends on the hospital, but yes. It's usually a low-cost or free clinic, typically for the people without insurance. The very poor can be covered (even retroactively) by Medicaid, but those without private insurance but not poor enough to get Medicaid are the ones going to the free clincs.

Considering May's age, I'm surprised she isn't registered on Medicare, but since Peter is doing everything under alternate/false names, it wouldn't go through.

Hospital wards are notorious for having older papers and magazines. And in the Marvel timeline, it wasn't that long ago that Peter unmasked.

And as for MJ, she was a soap opera actress and was in some C-list movies. Hardly "recognize in public by anyone at any time" material. Fanatic fan, yeah, Joe Q public, no.

The reason Steven said no to that is because he has exciled the Hulk to another dimension before, and he came back. He refused to kill the Hulk because he won't cross that moral line.
