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.

Gosh, I'm so sorry. I shouldn't have treated you as invisible. You're clearly the offended party here, and I should have taken the issue directly to you, when you posted your original...that is, when you first responded to thehefner...I mean, let me just pull up that original reply of yours...um.

Oh, wait...you didn't actually reply to thehefner. Yes, you replied to salinea, but you'll note that I'm defending the Simpsons reference, which, again isn't at all inherently sexist either in its original context or in the context of talking about a hypothetical death with no violence implied. If you don't fight the battle yourself instead of hiding behind a mod, why is it a surprise to you that I unwittingly treated you as 'invisible'?

Frankly, I couldn't care less what sex you are when I argue that you're wrong. The fact that you even started this long, arduous chain of replies is in itself proof that the definition of 'sexism' on this comm is largely hypocritical - you're pulling out the "THAT'S SEXIST" argument to attack a humorous comment referring to a Spider-Man character whose very existence and creation are in themselves fifty times more inherently sexist than that comment.

Additionally, you haven't really addressed the above-stated fact that there are more people arguing AGAINST your point than FOR it, and that you might - perhaps - need to get off your high horse and recognise that you're wrong, or at least that no matter who is wrong or right, you're blowing the issue out of proportion.

Do feel free to again interpret my attempts at being polite as 'belittling'. Because as we all know, when a debater asks their opponent to be reasonable and refers to them with a respectful 'Ma'am' or 'Sir', they really wants the opponent to feel belittled.
