> A thread below made me think of this, why not give your opinions on this issue?
> To me, it's prominent for two reasons, one VERY big one.
> 1. Ned Leeds death. A pivotal moment in the Spider-Saga.

Yeah, it served a purpose in psyching Pete out. He felt over his head in the spy/espionage environment.

> 2. Spidey kills someone. Not through inaction or accident ( sort of ), bit by hitting a normal person so hard he essentially pulps her.

Daredevil killing in Born Again doesn't really get mentioned either. Ah well, she was dead anyhow. Of course Logan could have hauled her off to the States and surrounded her with superhumans...

> Obviously he was set-up to do this by Wolverine and Charlie, the latter choosing death over a life in captivity, but the fact remains that Spidey kills someone with his bare hands, the only time I can ever recall that happening.

I can't either.

> Oh yeah, anyone else agree that Spidey totally kicked Logan's ass in this? \:\)

I thought they both looked good. Logan was a pretty formidable force in those days, taking on the Hulk and so on. The fact that he couldn't actually lay a hand on Spidey until he decided to let him showed how fast he was. And Logan did admit that Pete COULD kill him.

The odd thing was that webbing him up might have been a whole lot easier. Regardless, Pete was being written like a freaked out kid most of that book. Wolverine was in his head and he fought much like he did against Cap. In the end, both came out looking well, which is where Marvel wanted them.
