    Much more eventful issue,

Much more engaging than the poorly footnoted serially previous overpriced issue Giant-Size Amazing Spider-Man: Chameleon Conspiracy #1 that finally confirm the Teresa Parker absolutely... may or may not be Peter's sister after all that... probably.

    full of vague promises, but they themselves show a lot of promise. We have callbacks to so many of Spencer's ongoing plot threads,

Where have we seen that in this run before? ;\)

    Great to see the LOOKUPS referenced,


    Mary Jane continues her investigation into Carlie's disappearance. She talks to Jarvis at Avengers Mansion

Really nice to see him again as he is a sadly forgotten/neglected character. Still, it feels vaguely problematic to see him matter-of-factly still serving at the sadly forgotten/neglected Mansion. (It would be nicer if some book acknowledged the subtle animosity Americans were reported as having towards all things Avengers since they took up residence at the North Pole.)

    Lizard and Curt are split in two by Octavius, Peter tries to track down Ock and his crew but has no luck. He suspects Kindred's hand in this

This procedure has so many precidented examples. Most weird, some good, many bad. It will should be interesting how this will be presented/repeatable.

    I'm 100%, based off the last story arc, that Kindred's serum from The Chameleon is to maintain the appearances of BND Era Harry and that he is a Chameleon sleeper agent. I also suspect the building in paris was a Finisher school for Chameleon agents and that Gwen's 'children' were such agents themselves.


    Kindred unveils the sixth member of Ock's team: Mysterio

Hmmph. Underwhelming choice at this point. (nb. So was the motivation/way Kraven was recruited in Giant-Size Amazing Spider-Man: Chameleon Conspiracy #1.)

    Arriving there, Harry is captured by Kindred. He's been a prisoner for months.

Grey Gargoyle, below, is right - things have regressed to inorganically confusing in regards to how/if Kindred is 100% Harry.

    Weird how we have five teams of six members,

Remind me does Boomerang's 'team' have a 6th? (Shame if not.) Anyone know how chronologically Fisk & Foreigner fit from Cap#30? Cobra is lucky to score a shot in this Roguesapalooza.

> PREVIEW of ASM 070:
Poser cover and this one needlessly leading into one market gouge special for a typical one-shot bookend is a bit disappointing - but otherwise a servicable set-up here...
