At first I thought Parker Industries is going out of business after this arc, but Liz Allen's line about Peter always prying victory from defeat has me thinking that Parker Industries will survive despite the Ghost's best efforts. Peter may even use this upcomming attack to win the bid.

Amazing Spider-Man 016

Not sure about the point of Bearded Joe or the Robot on the cover - or the chronological logic of placing Black Cat at the auction and in the backup story at the same time - but the insides had a LOT of FUN to read.

Good stuff...
• art
• intro of IGUANA [intro, right?]. Maybe there's a connection to the reptiles in the last Spidey & The X-men issue featuring the transformation tech of Stegron and Sauron?
• protective goggles detail
• action sequence coupled with foe's comical annoyance of Spidey talking on the phone at the same time
• clever wordplay
• catching up with Aunt May
• dealing with Parker Industries which is clearly still a thing to deal with along with future superprison possibilities for the MU
• cute save with "SPYing a cab"
• Return of Molten Man [no doubt]
• Liz/Peter exchange
• ecclecticity [not a word, right?] of Black Cat's crew [overlooking continuity, 'natch]. Dare somebody here name 'em all and beside the name surmise if it's the original person or not??
• surprise and appropriate final page return
• an interesting BC internal-crossover back-up story. Not so much that saggy belt she is wearing. Her hesitation at Melter 'calling her out' was the best part of it as it suggests that they're FINALLY going to delve into this ridiculously sudden spurned lover turn to the dark side. The character expose Felicia narrates here was engaging teaser to that reveal
