Previous Post

- Norah goes undercover to interview a bunch of Neo-Nazi bikers who have embraced Norman Osborn. She blows her cover rather easily, forcing Spidey and Black Cat to save her.

- Felicia reveals that she and Spidey are officially "hero and sidekick" as the 'Cat tries gain credibility to join the Avengers. It's also "strictly professional."

- Peter stops by his new hotel suite at the Waldorf Astoria.

- Carly drops in, complains about their jobs preventing them from having any time together, and then has to leave to do forensics on the crime scene Peter just left.

- Carly's idea of a fun date is Netflix.

- Roderick Kingsley stops by a Goblin Lair to load up on ammo and finds Phil Urich there, trying to steal more Goblin Tech to impress Norah.

- Phil goes psycho and uses his Goblin Laugh to stun Kingsley and then behead him with a giant sword.

- Phil tries to talk to Norah but finds himself tongue-tied.

- Peter's first day of work sees him meet two more of the "Big Seven" including a 10-year old boy super genius named after The Watcher and a busty, bohemian, blonde girl.

- The final member of the "Big Seven" has total anonymity.

- Phil Urich attacks as the newest Hobgoblin, and uses his Goblin Laugh to immobilize Peter and prepare to behead him with his big sword. To be continuted....


Musings:

- Carly's cameo was worthless and did nothing to develop her personality. At least Debra Whitman was "mentally unstable."

- Felicia as Peter's sidekick is a good way to keep her in the title as a back-up girlfriend in case fan backlash against Carly is too much.

- Norah remains the best thing in the title. Very fun character.

- Phil's turn to the darkside and revelation as the newest Hobgoblin is very lame and very out of character for Phil. I buy him as less of a major threat than Mr. Negative or even The Spot.

- All in all a definite step-back after the strong start two weeks ago. Recommendation to avoid.

So Marvel's brought Kingsley out of retirement to kill two Hobgoblins. Heh.

I'm disappointed to hear this. I was hoping Slott had some good ideas for Kingsley, and the ending of 648 gave me great hope. \:\-\(
