But there's sometimes glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. Daredevil in his own book is one example, and Spider-Man in this issue is another.

This looked, sounded like and most importantly, felt like Spider-Man.

Too bad that didn't happen with the rest of the characters in this issue...

When did Colossus become a sped?

Eight days and Cydick didn't fix Wakanda himself?

"No one's seen Black Panther since the fall of Wakanda" (which was 8 days ago). So where is he? Oh, there he is, easily found in Wakanda, and then there he is next to Cap, the very person who was told that the Panther couldn't be found. Huh? :smt017

And where the hell is Reed Richards in all of this. That he hasn't been invited into this 'event' is a joke. World wide (beyond) alpha class forces that essentially have taken over the world and not a whisper of the guy that a 1st grader would know to call for.

And as much as I find the guy boring, where the hell is Doom? Phoenix Force energy is just the kind of thing Vic would love to grab. And for that matter, where are all the villains. It's their world too.

Emma goes after an off the map guy who may or may not have known he struck a person and kills him, yet people who have openly killed mutants (Marauders, the Upstarts, Stryker, Nefaria, Wolverine, etc) remain untouched by her new wraith? Weird.


And these are all the same reasons why Hickman's FF run was phenomenal.

With her and Scott being the last phoenix's it sets up scott killing Emma and then letting his own phoenix power go elsewhere. It seems out of place in this issue but I think it will fit into the picture of Emma being the real big bad here.


Can't wait for this to play out as I hate Emma and want her to die so bad. However, I think Scott might bite the bullet as well by chance.

Yep, tied everything together by living up to his previous words better than any other character in this mini. Anyone that still thinks Spider-Man shouldn't be an Avenger based on how he was mainly used as comic relief with Ben
dis was massively proven wrong as this showed when used properly he doesn't only belong but deserves to stand out as one of the top characters in Marvel's top team just like he does as a solo character.


Just hope this opportunity isn't squandered. There's no other way to sum it up other than 'Jason Aaron gets Spider-Man like no other writer has in decades'.


This I disagree with. It's the same old Spidey, with a writer that gets him, just written into an Avengers crossover. There was nothing about this that Peter needed to be an Avenger.

As far as Doom goes, he's dealing with much more powerful items than the Phoenix force at the old council of Reed's meeting place.

I think though, that it was important for him to be an Avenger because he could give that sort of insight. He was never taken seriously during the entire run, and his speech was informed completely by that.

He took the great power,great responsibility/never say die concept of Spider-Man into Marvel's premier team to an extent where he outshined every character by simply standing his ground.

It's not that he doesn't need to be an Avenger, it's that he's the best example of a Marvel character who epitomises what an Avenger is supposed to be. Even more than Captain America. It's the other way around....the Avengers NEED Spider-Man at the forefront due to this and Aaron's writing proved why he fits the role so well here.

Absolutely agreed.

I knew when I read Astonishing Spider-Man and Wolverine that Aaron really had a grasp of what makes Spider-Man/Peter Parker one of the best characters in all of the Marvel Universe.

Spider-Man doesn't quit. Ever. This moment illustrated that fact perfectly. Here he was, outclassed by two insanely powerful beings and all he could think about was distracting them long enough to give his friends enough time to escape. We all knew that Marvel wouldn't kill Spidey off but there was a moment where you were actually concerned that it might happen.


I actually thought he was going to die then one of the following was going to happen,

1. Colossus beats down his sister then heals spidey.
2. They defeat each other and then BOOM PHOENIX SPIDERMAN!!!

Well all I have to say is it was the best issue of Amazing Spider-Man I've read in years. I'm just afraid that Peter's face is now permenantly concave thanks to a Colossus/Juggernaut/Phoenix punch.

Did you read Jason Aaron's Black Panther arc during Secret Invasion? David Liss' Man Without Fear? They both had a good grip on them.

I thought the same thing as you with Spidey and Colossus. This was by far the best issue of this series so far. I would actually start buying Amazing Spider-Man again if Aaron was the writer.

The story is called Avengers vs. X-Men. I don't think the FF or Doom or a bunch of villains need to be in it. It's like wondering why Thor doesn't show up in Ghost Rider or something and help him defeat his enemies.

Spidey has always outshined the Avengers.

It's why Bendis and Quesada needed him and Wolverine to make it a better comic.
