"You’ll know we’ve failed if by issue 5 the Masters of Evil show up and there’s a fight with the Absorbing Man. Clearly at that point we will have been a victim of mission creep." -- Mark Waid

Loved Waid's straightforwardness about Miles not being in the issue: " If he's there, I have no story. "

This happens from time to time. "I'll bet Nekra or Mandrill is behind this." When it isn't, this get painfully awkward.

WEB OF SPIDER-MAN #20 and #22 had Spider-Man vs the IRA, with a change that there was an evil plot by Roxxon.

I remember reading about that. IIRC, the IRA kinda threatened Marvel, so yeah...

I'm fascinated by how different Gwen comes off when appearing in someone else's book as compared to her own. She's much more insane-seeming when we can't get inside her head.

"Evil is not exclusive to super-villains, aliens, secret societies, and monsters!"

"...Do you know how crazy that sounds?"

At least from her perspective, Gwen's got a point.

Well in her defense, she's appearing in a comic written by a guy who just wrote a Daredevil run where a demonic snake cult were causing hate crimes.

It isn't THAT crazy to expect Hate Monger or whoever to be behind this.

Ehhhhh... I normally love Gwen, but I think the writing here does her no favours. Gwen's superpower is her extensive knowledge of comics, but here it looks like her knowledge of comics is very limited.

Like.

bad cops always turn out to be super villains, or controlled by super villains, or super villains in training

Batman comics have corrupt cops all the time. The general assumption in Gotham is that if a cop is not working directly under Gordon's supervision, he is almost certainly crooked. Heck, Gotham Central made it clear that most Gotham cops loathed the protagonists specifically because they were uppity minorities.

The X-Men routinely deal with bigoted cops who are all about shooting first and asking never.

Not sure if Punisher counts as mainstream Marvel continuity or not, but if he does, 'nuff said.

Corruption and bigotry in the police force is not exactly an unheard of topic in comics.

She's being pressed into service as a foil by the almighty powers of the plot. It works well because she's their age and her style fits the general aesthetics; but the part about being genre-savvy doesn't work very well…
