0_0 The ending...
Anyway, I liked the issue overall, but are there two quibbles I have about it.
One is Spidey allowing Sable to torture Sandman. Granted, it does get across the point that Spidey is desperate and that it's also clear that he's relieved that Sandman didn't call his bluff, it just doesn't feel right for a character like Spider-Man to go into the Jack Bauer territory.
Secondly, during the scene with MJ, we get the sense that New York is on edge because they are not sure whether or not Doc Ock plans on using the Octavian Lens to save the world or destroy it. Which would be fine...if we had seen earlier scenes of Joe Q public expressing worry and doubt about Doc Ock along with others who welcomed Doc Ock plan. Except all we have seen from the average citizens of the Marvel Universe is nothing but them saying good things about what Doc Ock is doing to help the world, including this very issue. To then have a scene implying how people are on edge because they don't know for sure what Doc Ock is going to do is actually inconsistent which what the story has been establishing about the public's reaction.
But yeah, I liked it for the most part, particularly the scene in which Spidey professes his loyalty for MJ in spite of Silver Sable's advances, and the "shock ending."

Not exactly. They showed concern during the summit, and outside of that we get, what, two panels of two or three New Yorkers taking Ock's side (sort of)? It's a taste of the normal citizen's view on things, but it's hardly conclusive.
I know Kevin Nichols through a guy that knows a gal. Small world!
If nihilism didn't take some delight in destruction one might suspect nihilists were an unnaturally morbid sort.

The monster saved them all. And in their fear, they betrayed him. As they always have. As they always will.
