    I hope your understanding of the scene is how it was intended, then. Because the alternative is Michael Bay stupidness.

    I have no idea what will happen next issue but I'm anticipating it and dreading it at the same time. I also noticed that this was a comic version of a "bottle episode" since it primarily took part in the raft.
    I had the same thought, mostly because it was all transition from point A to point B that could fit into a page. The best stuff was Peter imagining the worst and also seeing Ock's memory...but wasn't the strongest issue.

    Dan Slott thinks you all have filthy minds.

    You are all SICK! :-P ASM #699 SPOILERS (Don't click if you haven't read #699 first)

    So...
    You read ASM #699, Page 8, Panel 5, and YOU walked away thinking:

    Sex?!
    Rape?!
    Incest?!!

    WHAT?! Where was THAT in the book?

    It's a panel of a FULLY CLOTHED Aunt May in a wedding dress as she's about to KISS the reader.
    She says that there's something she and her groom SHOULDN'T do before the wedding...

    You know what a groom isn't supposed to do before the wedding? He's not supposed to SEE the bride.

    SEE.

    S-E-E.

    And then we cut away BEFORE the kiss connects.

    The next shot is of a closed door.

    ANYTHING that happened BETWEEN the panels happened in YOUR OWN MIND.

    Like a Rorschach test, YOU were reading into that scene with whatever baggage YOU brought with you.
    Any icky/disgusting things that took place between Aunt May and Doc Ock (in Doc Ock's memories) were things that YOUR imagination came up with.

    Shame on you. :-P

    Any 8 year old kid who read that scene probably thought about how icky it'd be to be kissed by one of their old, wrinkly aunts.

    What did YOU think happened there? :-/

    ttyl ;-)

    So based on that, it sure sounds like he was saying even the folks at Marvel had interpreted the scene the same way most of the fans eventually did.

    I think Dan's twitter post needs to be taken with a couple of very large grains of salt.

    Marvel pros also have filthy minds.

    Anyone here read Our Love is Real? That gloriously messed-up one-shot turned Sam Humphries into Marvel's next writer.

    Oh, given that incident in which he tweeted Stegman about "Miquel" and then quickly deletes, and then people start thinking "Oh my god! The Superior Spider-Man is Miquel O'Hara!" absolutely. I'm just saying that Slott in that tweet, as means of hyping up Amazing Spider-Man #699, saying that "page 6 is the most disturbing moment in Spider-Man history" may have helped to make readers think "something disturbing is going to happen" and once they saw the Aunt May scene, they went "Gross, that really is disturbing." In other words, Slott pulled an Inception without the fancy dream machine.

    dude, being inside the guy who makes out with the woman you call mom and is a super villain is a very disturbing image.

    Never meant to imply it wasn't. Especially when the implication is also, based on the previous memories of Doc Ock Peter witness, it involves all of the five senses, not just sight and sound. And besides, the comic is labeled T so it can't be TOO explicit.

    I laughed out loud at the Aunt May memory.

    But heres the thing, how does that classify as the most disturbing thing in Spider-Man history, like considering how he got his eye eaten once. Or when you see Norman Osborn's sex face. Being inside Doc Ock and remembering the time he made out with Aunt May isn't really that bad in comparison.

    As my best good friend Mark Zieba told me, Aunt May talking about doing it with Doc Ock just replaced Norman's Oh-face as Marvel's ickiest moment for him.
