Am I the only one that feels like Marquez (who does an awesome job) seems to draw Miles as older than he really is? In this issue he looked like he was 15 instead of 13, Pichelli makes Miles look younger and shorter. It just weird me out a little, Marquez draw a great Miles in costume in issue 10, so I was thinking about that while I was re-reading the issue today.
I think it's just Marquez style, Ganke also looks bigger than when Pichelli drew him, but I was just wondering if someone else thought the same thing.
I can see why Steve is being the way he is. He does not want another dead Spider-Man. And because Miles is 4 years younger than Peter he is more likely to get killed at a quicker rate. So I can see why Steve says what he says and is acting the way he is. He said Peter was to young and he got killed so yeah I don't think Steve was really being a jerk.

Just got finished reading this issue and I have to say this title keeps getting better and better. This is the second month in a row where the things took an unexpected and surprising turn. I definitely wasn't expecting to see Gwen or May this issue, let alone be the one's wanting to meet up with Miles. All in all, can't wait for the next issue and for miles to finally get his webs.
Sooner or later someone has to add all that together. Be it Judge or some villain-hunting down anyone teen that looks like Miles.
Before you guys mentioned it, I honestly hadn't noticed Miles holding back with the venom strike during his fight with Batroc. Pretty cool stuff.
I loved this issue. IMO, issues 12 and 13 are the high point of the series so far. Like Plawsky said, this feels like the old USM.
I like how Bendis worked in the appearance of May and Gwen and made it a legitimate surprise. Every reader has been waiting impatiently for this meeting since issue #1, and everyone knew it was coming eventually. Bendis used Cap as a distraction so that it was a serious shock when May and Gwen appeared. I was floored.
I do have questions about this story's continuity with Spider-Men, but there's still plenty of opportunity for the next few issues to clear everything up. Hopefully Bendis hasn't screwed over his own continuity again, as he is wont to do.
I can't blame Cap for wanting to put the kibosh on Miles's superhero-ing. He's a little gruff about it, but he's not being a dick. As established early in this issue, he believes Peter's death is the result of a lack of training (for which he blames himself), and he knows that no one has the time to train Miles. He'd rather see Miles hang up the mask than wind up dead like Peter.
I don't mind admitting that if I was face-to-face with a superpowered 13-year-old, I'd have the same reaction.
