Subj: Amazing Spider-Man#78: Sweet Somethings In Your Ear

Ben lures Morbius back to his apartment at Beyond, where the automated security systems shoot off Morbius' arm. Ben passes out from his bite last issue and is thrown into intensive care, where Maxine Danger hesitates in giving him the anti-toxin in case Ben develops vampire powers that she can exploit. Eventually, she permits the anti-toxin to be used.

Meanwhile, Felicia breaks into Peter's ward and whispers something in his ear that causes him to awaken ever so briefly, Mary Jane rushes into the room but Peter slips back into his coma. Felicia offers to leave but MJ appreciates her being there for him, and jokes she might have to get more love interests in the room.

Ben recovers and he and Janine spend an evening at the pictures and stroll through the park, sharing a kiss, not knowing they are being watched by the new Kraven

My thoughts

Both Spiders spend most of the issue in intensive care, leaving the focus firmly on all the women involved, Morbius is almost treated somewhat comically, more a domestic pet who gets abused, even Misty and Colleen don't seem all that perturbed by the fact he's missing an arm. No idea what role Monica Rambaeu, appearing randomly and with little fanfare, has to do with either of them.

The best scene is arguably between Mary Jane and Felicia. It appears MJ fully appreciates the connection Felicia has with Peter, a little follow up to Spencer's run where she told Peter she was no longer jealous of the Black Cat, for she knows how indispensable she herself is to Peter and her joke that his ability to 'get around' means she ought to attract more love in the room was kind of kinky and good humoured. This is the MJ we like to see.
