cyberghostface: (Spidey & MJ)
[personal profile] cyberghostface posting in [community profile] scans_daily
So after Marla's death, Spidey has taken on a vow that no one will ever die under his watch. Just as he says that, a new villain called Massacre is holding a group of people hostage and has lined them up with explosives. To make a point, he's already killed one. His backstory is that a piece of shrapnel lodged its way into his brain, taking away his ability for empathy or morals.

Spider-Man gets shot by Massacre, leading him to build a new armored suit.

Meanwhile, Mayor Jonah in response to the tragedy has declared "no tolerance" for murderers and wants Massacre dead.

So Spider-Man arrives into the scene, and webs up the hostages. Massacre tells him that he's sealed their fate and sets off the detonator, only for Spidey to tell him that his new webbing is magnetic and has blocked the detonator's radio frequencies. Massacre asks him if the new webbing is bulletproof and proceeds to fire.



Massacre claims he has other hostages wired a block away but Spidey webs up his detonator, once again preventing him from blowing anyone up. Now powerless, Massacre apparently tries to commit suicide by going up to the window where the police are about to shoot him.

Once again a comic book character is blessed with meta-awareness of the genre convention that villains can always escape from jail whenever the plot requires it, while remaining blind to the equally ridiculous genre convention that villains can always return from the dead whenever the plot requires it.

Ho hum.
