Meeting Electro would be a fanboy dream of Parker's come true, since Electro kinda made the whole supervillain gig seem appealing to Parker in the first place.
Well, I guess an exception could be made for Dwayne McDuffie's Beyond!, he was a pretty serious threat there.

Hood's team is the most uninteresting grouping of b and c list baddies i've ever seen. Chemistro? Jigsaw? Madame Masque? It's a regular keystone kops for villainy incompetence. I'll have to assume that Bendis meant for the group to be one pathetic-looking motley crew of losers because it just doesn't work as anything awe-inspiring.
The Hood outlined the plans for them in both usage and in organization to work as a unit rather than individually where they almost always fail. As for characters like Jigsaw and Madam Masque, they aren't THAT low on the recognition factor since they've been around in various titles like Daredevil and Avengers/Iron Man but having them mixed in with the other more obscure villains like Dr. Demonicus and Chemistro makes for an interesting mix.
I also like the personalities of the ones showed so far like Blackout and the Wrecking Crew.
Anyway, I gotta say #35 was an enjoyable read for the simple fact it was pretty much all-villain.
Now, who the heck is the lion-esque character at the table?

As it turns out, the Mr. Fear in Hood's gang is definitely the Mr. Fear over in Daredevil right now. Read the latest issue of DD for more info. Or check out the thread on the MU board. Either way, get your dose of spoilers.
