    I disagree. That look is how he thinks everyone should view him. As superior. I think it fit perfectly.

    I understand your point completely. But the Armani suit was excellent.

Then, in the very next scene with Mary Jane and Carlie, MJ says the same thing and then proceeds to explain that "Crazy-town banana pants" was something she picked up from Peter while they were living together. Then Carlie adds that Peter said "crazy-town banana pants" all the time while they were dating. The problem is that Peter has never uttered that phrase in any comic until this issue. Moreoever, people didn't even recognize that what Peter said was a nod to Community until some had a vague recollection of hearing the phrase somewhere else before and looked it up on the internet.

    Still, this is a very well-written response all the same.
    Good god man, maybe Dan Harmon overheard Peter saying it 5 years ago at the Coffee Bean and used it for the show. Maybe Peter does say it all the time but only in the hundreds of thousands of conversations he's had off-panel. Would that make it OK? Could we move on then?

    I thought the first issue suffered from some poor dialogue, especially from the Sinister Six but Peter saying "Crazy town banana pants!" is.... well I don't even have words.

    What are you talking about? That's classic Peter dialogue...

    This is one of the few places where you hear "Crazy town banana pants" and it's funny On-purpose.
    I tried looking up the Straw Hat Law, but I guess The Amish haven'[t made it to the Internet yet.

    Since the big twist is Peter's ghost, or whatever, is following Doc Oc, to us Peter never really left. I do like seeing Peter's current reaction to Doc Living in his body. It'll be fun to see how much influence he has on Doc and the ways he can interact with him like at the end of the last issue.

    Current solicits say the public figures out this is not the Regular Spider-Man. It looks like Mary Jane might find out sooner. But maybe not soon enough...ugh

    The ghost Ock will follow Pete around with captions like "Not the argyle sweater with white socks!"

    LOL! I love it. I would buy this comic.

    I think I would actually pick up this comic if Doc Ock was the permanent Spider-Man going forward, as he's more interesting right now than Peter was, but the instant reveal that Parker will be back tells me I can continue to not care about Spider-man, because no matter the hype Slott spits out, Spider-Man will always end up where he started.

    Peter is miserable and emo, good stuff starts to happen, Peter gets happy, something happens to reset everything back to Peter being miserable, etc...
