Spider-Man: The Other
Mark Waid is not your typical writer either. Look at this opening shot for example. Flashbacks to that fortune he read in high school: Source Marcos Martin does a great job, as usual, but I find the scene to be really unique. Other writers will start a Spidey story with him swinging across New York or coming across a crime in progress, but Waid gives us that rare glimpse of Spidey just chilling out, eating lunch, while facing his ever-present case of bad luck with the pouring rain.
Pair him with an artist like Marcos Martin, and you tend to get comic book gold. The Shocker has also been one of my favorite Spidey enemies.
Yes, he looks like a quilt and is constantly treated as a joke especially during Brian Michael Bendis' Ultimate Spider-Man runbut he's been around a long time. It's awesome that Waid actually makes him serious here, as someone with dangerous weaponized gloves who can really do some damage, instead of a dorky B-list adversary for Spidey to punch. I really love it when writers can give classic members of Spidey's rogues gallery a new touch or use them differently.
It adds an additional flavor, or level, to the character, gives them another edge, a reason for readers to go "Huh, Shocker's in this one" instead of "Ugh, Shocker? Why'd Waid pick that guy?
Written by Roger Stern and illustrated by Lee Weeks, this filler tale follows Spidey as he tries to figure out a way to take this guy down and hobnobs with some detectives and his Aunt May. It's another one of those single issue stories meant to bridge the gap between two story arcs, and I've noticed how these issues decrease in quality over time.
Spider-man: Death And Dating : Dan Slott :
Makes the story's title even more appropriate, doesn't it? Later, Peter goes to Doctor Strangewho tells him he cannot use his magic to cure Peter and tells Peter to prepare himself for death. As he thinks of what it would be like in Las Vegas, Peter thinks about using his spider-sense to win at blackjack, in the hopes of making enough money for his family after he is gone, but of course, even Vegas would most likely be hit by super villains he would have to fight.
Later, Peter tries to clear his head with web slinging.
Not expecting to be attacked, Peter is caught off-guard when Morlun attacks him. The ensuing fight sends Spider-Man flying through J. Spider-Man then moves the fight away from civilians and to Empire State University, where he was bitten by the spider that gave him his powers.

The fight intensifies as momentum swings from Morlun's side to Spider-Man's side. After an exhausting array of punches and kicks, Spider-Man starts to think that he has the victory after a titanic and epic duel that raged across the city.
However, an unscathed Morlun plucks Spider-Man's left eye out and devours it. Morlun then savagely beats Spider-Man into a bloody, unconscious mess.
Act Three[ edit ] Before Morlun can kill Spider-Man, the police show up and Morlun leaves Spider-Man's bloody, unconscious body, planning to finally drain his life force when the hero is alone.
The paramedics take the near-dead Spider-Man to the hospitalwith the Avengers and Mary Jane Watson on the way as well when they hear what happened on television, and they learn that Spider-Man's injuries are too severe. Morlun goes to the unconscious Spider-Man's hospital bed to finish him off, but MJ attempts to stop Morlun, who effortlessly throws her across the room and also breaks her arm.
Peter suddenly wakes up, and using the last of his strength, the savage, animalistic spider-side of himself takes over granting him sharp teeth and stingers in his wristsand he attacks Morlun, pinning the villain and impaling his arms to the floor.
Peter then violently bites and tears out Morlun's neck, killing him. Reverting to normal, Peter says goodbye to MJ and falls to the floor, seemingly dead.
Spider-Man is thought to be dead, and Iron Man transports his body away from the hospital. Later Wolverine flirts with MJ but to no avail as Mary Jane conceives it as another one of Wolverine's attempts to seduce her into an affair; it turns out that Wolverine only did so in an attempt to deflect her mind from the loss of her husband.
After being unable to sleep, Mary Jane has a conversation with another New Avengers member, Spider-Woman Jessica Drewwho tells her that her own and Peter's powers both derived from the spider, and that she could sense when Peter was going down; this obviously is through the mystical side of their powers. Both Spider-Woman and Spider-Man got their powers via radiation involving some form of spider DNA, and thus their powers are extremely similar. In the middle of the talk, there is an audible crash from the chamber where Peter Parker's body is kept.
Mary Jane and the New Avengers arrive at the scene, to find that Peter's body has been hollowed out. Judging by the amount of glass outside the window, Captain America judges that the intruder escaped but not entered through the window. Mary Jane discovers the secret: The scene cuts to a teacher explaining about spiders to her class and how a few rare species can shed their skin and begin anew.
As the class goes to leave, we see a cocoon of webbing fastened to the Brooklyn Bridge. Several days have passed since Peter shed his skin and begins with Iron Man flying around searching for him.
Under the Brooklyn Bridge, Peter sleeps inside his cocoon and has a strange dream. A voice tells him he never understood what he was, accusing him of being too scared to truly be a "Spider-Man", only focusing on the human part and neglecting the spider part.
Morlun managed to kill the human part of Peter, but the spider in him survived and killed Morlun, saving them both. The voice tells him that he will only be reborn if he accepts both parts, and warns him that Peter could be reborn very differently. Peter's soul agrees and is reborn, naked but outwardly human. Later in the night, Peter goes to the lab where his husk is and recalls the final warning of the voice: Or the spider who dreamed of being a man? Are you the one Act Four[ edit ] Peter gets a check up from Stark.
As it turns out, Peter's wounds from his old enemies have been healed, including his missing left eye, and even the tonsils he lost in fourth grade have reappeared.

As Stark puts it, Peter's "odometer had been reset" this would be the first time he had an exoskeleton processed. Before the test could continue, Aunt May stopped it and told Peter to "go play. Meanwhile, in Stark Tower, pirate spiders have started to eat Peter's old dead body.
