    My thoughts

    This issue brings characters closer together, all the existing players of this event begin to unify and set off on their own side-missions. Felicia is with Doctor Strange to save Spidey, MJ is recruited by Osborn to save Harry. A most...interesting relationship dynamic and ones I hope will lead to even more fun in the next batch of .LR themed issues.

    A cleansed Norman interacting with MJ ought to be a great read,


    and I love that he finally atones for all his years of mucking about on the bridges by saving one of Peter's greatest loves from one in dissarray.

That happend last time in #50.LR with Kafka, eh. Norman's had lucid and regretful in other runs, like as medicated leader of the Thunderbolts, right? Still, here, exclusive ASM readers get to rewardingly see it in the book they won't miss out on (in spite of the ".LR" *koff*).

    Nice to see the more traditional New Warriors make a cameo after all the bad publicity from the unveiling of their modern counterparts (who have yet to see publication as of this writing) , I noticed some people got excited for their inclusion because Kaine and Ben were formerly members...not so much here though.

Their (SB & NT) gratuitous cameo kind of threw me off some as Revolving Door and also if as an official New Warriors appearance. Not sure when they 'officially' reformed yet. Still looking for that. If it was between issues then this deserves a nitpick since such a return deserves more coordinated in-story spotlight/justification. If it was a missed issue then Marketing failed to hype them better. It's hard to imagine the OUTLAWED will end The Champions (which would be fine by me) so an exciting return of these ('legal aged'?) vigilantes is totally diluted and unnecessary - at least if they're based in NY. Or maybe the reporters just assumed they were still a team like they thought the possessed Order of the Web were imposters. At least the inclusion of SB & NT help explain A LITTLE BIT OF THE TROPE that theses wild webfolk will likely not mortally wound anyone in spite of their otherwise unchecked superhuman rampage.

    And perhaps we're getting some semblance of a reason why they're excluded, with Morlun's return you can bet some Spiders will pay a hefty price. My safe money is on Julia finally copping it.

This final page surprise addition to the parade of villains for this ".LR" Event *koff* is the only element that made me groan. Why? Didn't the Spider-gang imprison them on some alt-Earth forever at the end of their event arc because fans demanded a long break from Inheritors? As for Chauffeur Kenny - is he an established character from that MJ mini? That would get a cheer. Regardless of that detail, one neatly engaging added detail was that of serially fitting the story in the MU with the very topical newsfeed scroll across the TV monitor!
