I really liked the story of Stark and Watson's first meeting. I thought it was interesting and humanizing.
Also Bendis has once again made me really crave sushi. That looks like salmon sushi and...california rolls, maybe? I could really go for some salmon sushi and california rolls with, like, a bit of wasabi smeared on and a little eel-sauce. Geaux Fish should pay Bendis a percentage. Unfortunately it's 10:30 at night here and the local restaurants are closed. I suppose I could go buy some sushi at Wal-Mart but their sushi is garbage. I'll probably end up cooking some yum woon sen. Yum woon sen is nice and light and I'm in the mood for light.
Anyway I liked this issue even if I am continuously perplexed at the absence of even the modest mainstream TV degree of darkness one sees in Doctor Who and Buffy.
It's not how they first met, they met just before Civil War in the REAL continuity when she and Peter, who were married, moved in with the Avengers...you know, before Tony played his part in ruining her life with Peter. There's no justifiable reason why she's even working with him, worse, she's now reduced to a cheerleader.
This is the most iconic supporting character in comics and she's been overshadowed all decade by the versions of her in the newspaper comic strip and Renew Your Vows, aka the ones still committed to Peter.
Also, there was nothing "humanizing" about the meeting, just Tony being a douche and this so-called "MJ" being a bitch, the REAL MJ would never have said Spider-Man ruined her moment 700 times.
