Best Marvel wedding ever.
Why wasn’t this a double issue?!?
Aunt May is set to inherit an island with valuable resources on it, so Doctor Octopus decides to woo her. I an’t sayin’ he’s a golddigger…But like every Marvel wedding, the ceremony is interrupted by a supervillain.
Hammerhead comes in all full of piss and vinegar, Spider-Man has to fight him, and then the island blows up. Seriously.
Needless to say, the wedding didn’t go through as planned.
Also, Spider-Man drives, continuing the ongoing debate about whether he has a driver’s license.
A question now incorporated into the MCU.
I also want to take the time to note something special about what Marvel brought to the comic book game: Reality.
Peter stashes his clothes while he does some Spider-Man action, but he stashed them near the vent of a delicatessen, so he smells like liver for the rest of the day.
And finally, MJ is starting to love Peter, but doesn’t want to.

Grade: C. I really wanted it to be better, but it wasn’t.
