That was fast. Which means that any toxic fanbase gets to do a Gwen Stacy Sin's Past job on Mary Jane in the Mother/Whore combination trope. However you slice it, unless it is entirely an act of deception, Spider-Man's world has changed dramatically, internally and externally. How will he get it back? Does he even want to?

And there's even a post-credits scene… which, no, no, that would be a step too far. So… how is the Spider-Man fanbase going to respond to this one? Aside from buying it tomorrow the second the doors open, to get an inkling of what on earth is going on here?

Peter's on the outs with the FF. He's on the outs with the Avengers. He's on the outs with Aunt May! No one wants to see Spider-Man – except for Doctor Octopus. Ock's on Spider-Man's tail and the Master Planner has something truly terrible planned for when he gets his tentacles on Spidey. All that, and what does Tombstone have planned? Just in time for Spider-Man's 60th Anniversary, a new volume of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN begins, and 2022 is going to be the biggest year for Spider-Man EVER! Don't believe us? We brought John Romita Jr. back JUST FOR THIS!
