I thought this issue was good, clean fun. I always love the Kingsley Hobgoblin, and between two Hobgoblins, the Kingpin, a room full of ninjas and his spidey-sense on the fritz, the situation looked pretty dire for Peter.
A question (and I do hate to bring all this up again). Whenever I see Peter and the Kingpin in the same frame, it reminds me of that charged encounter where Peter humiliated the Kingpin by slapping him half to death in front of a prison full of criminal inmates. My question is, do either Kingpin or Peter remember this confrontation? Does Peter remember that the Kingpin shot Aunt May? If so, you'd think the mutual hatred would shine through a little more (I'm aware that Kingpin doesn't know that Peter is Spidey).
"My question is, do either Kingpin or Peter remember this confrontation? Does Peter remember that the Kingpin shot Aunt May?"
Yes and yes. The psychic blindspot means that the Kingpin no longer remembers who Spider-Man is, but he'd still remember all of their confrontations.
