One of the few self-contained stories during this period was in April , which featured the death of Aunt May — later revealed to have been faked although the death still stands in the MC2 continuity. The " Clone Saga " culminated with the revelation that the Spider-Man who had appeared in the previous 20 years of comics was a clone of the real Spider-Man.

Michael Straczynski took over as writer  and oversaw additional storylines — most notably his lengthy "Spider-Totem" arc, which raised the issue of whether Spider-Man's powers were magic-based, rather than as the result of a radioactive spider's bite.

Parker now exists in a changed world where he and Mary Jane had never married, and Parker has no memory of being married to her, with domino effect differences in their immediate world.
The most notable of these revisions to Spider-Man continuity are the return of Harry Osborn, whose death in The Spectacular Spider-Man May is erased; and the reestablishment of Spider-Man's secret identity, with no one except Mary Jane able to recall that Parker is Spider-Man although he soon reveals his secret identity to the New Avengers and the Fantastic Four.

What are your thoughts? Donovan Morgan Grant: Well, some people definitely take to Spider-Man learning new things. I fall in line with that group.
Yes, that is what bugged me. They treat it as if he has never had any martial arts training before. This happens every so often.
Similar comments were made. How often has this been brought up by writers before?
For example, I doubt the Cap sessions were more than a few hours here or there. Still, it bugs me that they treat it he has no martial arts experience after all these years. It undermines our hero for the sake of building him up.
Yeah, for real. I notice this is mostly done when Spider-Man is paired with other heroes as oppose to in a solo setting. We the audience should always be invested in him, not laughing at him for being a dope. It loses the relatability factor that has been with the character through the many years. Me too. Slott has both good and not so good points when writing for a general audience. Ramos art style took me years to get used to. The Good Bertone: I enjoyed that Spider-Man is actually is recieving some perks for being an Avenger.

Being able to send the bill to Tony Stark is convienent and nice change from everyone yells at Spidey. Being taught by Shang Chi was a neat concept. I loved the use of Mandrill here. I am not too familiar with him or his powers, but I enjoyed how it was utilized here.
Oh yes. As stated before, I really liked the Ramos art. I understand from Slott that this story takes place a few months ahead of the current books. Perhaps including some of those character would have spoiled some plot points.
I still think something could have been done. I agree with you there. That too. It felt heavy handed. By that token, I was surprised how Shang-Chi sounded. The Two Page Teaser Bertone: Besides, I think we should give our two cents! To all the people who think Mr. Negative is going to kill Eddie Brock, please calm down. Eddie will be just fine, knife through the chest aside.
They always come back. It will be interesting to see how they react to eachother. What about the big ones Bertone?
Like MJ with spider powers? When I first saw it, I thought Peter invented wall crawling boots or something. Notice MJ sticks to the wall her boots still in.
As is the case with Peter most of the time. Unless it was an artist goof. What about Norah Winters necking with the Hobgoblin? Norah kissing the Hobgoblin is something I suspect to be a fakeout. Something along the lines of Vicki Vale pretending to come onto the Joker in the Batman film. Would make sense with the script. That would stink. Too heavy handed.
Especially when Peter was getting surprised by his own words. Which image has you the most intrigued? My guess is Miles Warren. What do you readers think? This book was worth every penny. Enjoyable and fun. Free Comic Book Day, so how picky could you really be? I agree, worth the price! Seriously, it was a fun distraction. But free comics are always cool. I had two kids with me during the comic store visit.
