Peter goes after Strange, demanding to know how Carlie could have uncovered his identity after his spell.



The thing he has to do is give MJ the antidote, since she still has her spider-powers.

Also, Kaine is now scarless, and from the looks of it I'm guessing he's going to be the new Scarlet Spider. I liked what they did with Kaine when they brought him back (before 'killing' him off), but I'm not too crazy about prettifying him and making him some sort of superhero. And why tease the possibility of bringing Ben back?

And Julia Carpenter, the new Madame Web (I still don't understand why they had to kill off the old one and make her the new one) apologizes to Peter about the loss that's to come.

I'm reminded instantly of the 1990s Valentine's Day special in which MJ - reacting to Peter's statement of 'Cool Guys Like Me' in quantifying some advice he gave to a nerd on-campus - gets his old horn rims and sweater vest out of their chest-of-drawers and reminds him that she married 'Peter Parker, the shy nerd who lived with his aunt'.

If Slott is trying to use Cooper as the voice of truth when she says 'Parker is just the mask', then he's just as much an idiot as she is. However, it looks more like he's just using that to demonstrate how utterly wrong for Peter she was all along.

If only he actually knew how to write Peter Parker, then maybe there'd be some hope for this title...

Well, it is like that line in Kill Bill Vol. 2: "Clark Kent is Superman's critique of the whole human race." The audience isn't sure if that is Quentin Tarantino's own opinion of Superman or not, but they are sure it isn't accurate (at least since 1986).

In the last ish, didn't MJ basically say the opposite - that Pete could save them all because he was Peter Parker, not just Spidey, and that he could science-nerd his way out of the problem?

I choose to believe that this is therefore not Voice-of-God, but instead proof that Carlie is certainly not yet at the stage where she can get Peter the way MJ does. (In her defense, it doesn't help that for much of the time she's been dating him his actual alterego seems to have been Jerk-From-a-Jock-Movie-Man).

"...If Slott is trying to use Cooper as the voice of truth when she says 'Parker is just the mask', then he's just as much an idiot as she is..."

I don't really know the writer's intent, but it's also possible to read that scene as Carlie thinking that if Peter's this awesome hero whom she's admired all this time, she no longer feels like she can ever be his/their equal.

"...A costume you put on to be like the rest of us..."
