Amazing Spider-Man – Back to Basics | Comics

Spider-Man goes back to basics with rekindled love with Mary Jane, a new roommate and a dangerous new villain!

After his latest victory over Norman Osborn as the Amazing Spider-Man, Peter Parker is trying to get back at his feet and what better way to do that other than hanging out with Mary Jane Watson, the love of his life? However, he finds him awake at 5 AM at the sound of his roommate playing Call of Duty: Latveria with all those speakers on.

The person, Fred Myers is also a known super-villain Boomerang, other than being his roomie who just moved in alongside his friend Randy Robertson. Lately, he robbed a museum and former Kingpin turned current mayor of New York, Wilson Fisk allowed him to escape. This made Spidey suspicious but he can now keep an eye on Fred from home.

The next thing he knows is Avengers, Defenders and X-Men are trying to fend the city from an alien invasion. Spider-Man jumps right in to help fight this army of insectoids and he sees Human Torch falling victim to one of those. Soon, he sees all of the assembled heroes were having their face swallowed up by those creatures except him.

He noticed a pattern in the portal that the biomasses were coming from and to see if he is right, Spidey leaps towards it, only to hit by a glass bubble. He sees master of illusions, Mysterio standing on the other side and quickly bursts in to subdue him.

The judge gets bored with Mysterio monologuing at his hearing and then Janice Lincoln, daughter of mobster Tombstone and former Beetle of the imposter Sinister Six team shows up to defend his case but before doing that, she starts puking bugs. The entire courtroom is swarmed with hordes vermin and everything around them starts collapsing.

This looks a lot like those schemes Quentin Beck would put out and he seeks an exit while everyone else is seemingly being massacred but he instead finds himself surrounded in dark with an entity that has a history with him and sent Beck after the wall-crawler. Wrapped around in a huge centipede, this new foe heralds doom for the hero.

Peter thought he saw enough weirdness for then but didn't expect a sudden encounter with Fisk only a week ago. Even though very strict to all other vigilantes, Wilson seem to publicly accept him to separate him from his peers. Then he is accused of plagiarizing his doctoral degree and his entire academic credentials got literally trashed.

This fiasco has made him lose the job at Daily Bugle and in spite of him not being guilty; he couldn't come clean about it without revealing his secret identity and the time when Otto Octavius took control over his body. Though Mary Jane laughs it off for the ridiculousness of the whole thing but unfortunately, Aunt May didn't took it very well.

Tired of making the same mistakes again and again, Peter decides to turn his whole life around by going back to MJ and resume his relation with her. Things did started falling in line as Empire State University calls him in to give him a second chance to re-submit his doctoral thesis on recommendation of faculty member Dr. Curt Connors AKA The Lizard.

Though Parker is freaked out to see Connors in his reptilian persona, he assures that there is an inhibitor chip on his neck to make sure that he doesn't hurt anyone. He is also working on reverse engineering an Isotope Genome Accelerator to separate his two personalities. At that very moment, Black Ant and Taskmaster broke in to steal it.

Since he cannot stop them without blowing his cover, Peter causes a chemical explosion and Spider-Man arrives to rescue. Before leaving, he recognizes and greets Parker among the crowd. All of a sudden Peter and Spidey became two different persons moving ahead with their own lives, one with Mary Jane and other with crime-fighting.

So, when the Tri-Sentinel shows up next time wrecking the city MJ and Pete goes to a bowling alley, while everyone's friendly neighborhood wall-crawler goes to fight the murder-bot of mutants! One of them however become powerless, another one has thrown responsibility out of the window but how does Kraven the Hunter got mixed into this?

Amazing Spider-Man – Back to Basics

To shake things up from the core and getting a fresh new start, Marvel Comics hired a brand-new creative team of writer Nick Spencer (Ant-Man – Second-Chance Man, Doctor Strange – Damnation) and artist Ryan Ottley (Haunt, Invincible) in 2018 for "Back to Basics" storyline for the newest monthly ongoing volume of Amazing Spider-Man.

Collecting the first five issues of the series, Nick actually did a pretty impressive beginning as he laid foundation for upcoming arcs yet to come and Ryan was at his absolute peak as well. Going back to the roots, they bring back some of the old villains who, although are not Carnage or Goblin-level scary but troublesome enough, to get back at Spidey.

Aside from the regular folks in the life of the hero, Black Cat, Black Panther, Black Widow, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Gambit, Groot, Hawkeye, Human Torch, Iron Fist, Iron Man, Jean Grey, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Old Man Logan, Rocket Raccoon, Rogue, She-Hulk, Star-Lord, Thing, Thor and Vision made cameo appearance.

Overall, "Back to Basics" really went back to the deep roots of Amazing Spider-Man legacy and nitpicking details to deliver another "Brand New Day" for the hero. The inclusion of penciller Humberto Ramos (Champions – Change The World, Extraordinary X-Men – X-Haven) for a bonus back-up story was also a treat for long-time fans.

Spider-Man/Deadpool – Isn't it Bromantic | Comics

The Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool and webbed wonder, Spider-Man are teaming up together as a real dynamic duo in the neighborhood.

When one of his old enemies Morris Bench, better known as Hydro-Man came up with his latest scheme to sink New York City with its own sewage if he is not getting paid a hundred million dollars, Spider-Man decided to stop him while making bathroom jokes.

As he was on his fourth web cartridge, hired mercenary Deadpool showed up to check on him after he rage-quit Avengers Unity Division. Spidey was already having a tough time paring with Wet-Nap and now he's got to deal with Wade as well.

Since he has trouble understanding how society's moral contract work, DP's therapist suggested him a morality app and according to the suggestion it gave, he decided to go "Chaotic Neutral", which means, he will do whatever he thinks best in this situation.

So, he grabbed webhead and teleported to Hell only to get captured by the dreaded Dormammu and his army of Mindless Ones. As hanging upside down, they are caught in Spidey's webbing but Wade then came up with a butt-cracking idea!

He managed to snap his own hip for Spidey to grab his katana and cut them loose and the latter did so skeptically. Almost immediately after getting free, Deadpool gets overwhelmed by a horde of Mindless Ones but the wall-crawler pulled him out and it fixed his hip back.

As more of them try to swarm the duo, Dee Pee unexpectedly pulls out some real brains off his pouches that he got from a morgue and starts slamming them into their heads. Now, it starts turning them into "Mindful Ones". Having brains of the self-entitled millennials, they start rebelling against their master and the two teleports out of Hell in the mean time.

Spider-Man/Deadpool – Isn't it Bromantic | Comics

Back in New York, they came across Hydro-Man once again and now Deadpool starts throwing poop jokes at him. After getting showered in poop water, Spidey throws Wade at the villain to detonate his incendiary grenades and it went KA-BOOM!

Spider-Man asks why Wade wants to hang out with him all of a sudden and he replies that he wants to be like Spidey. Back at his place, he receives a contract for killing Peter Parker, who is also the employer of his webhead friend and it makes everything complicated.

At Parker Industries, Peter was having a scene regarding the launch of a wrist device Webware 2.0, while Wade sits back at home going through evidence on his target sent by his contractor. Upon seeing them, his wife Shiklah confirms that the targeted individual deserves a seat in Hell but advises her husband to verify it for himself.

Given that he has no way of contacting his role-model, Wade Wilson starts mugging people off the street and Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales had to call Spidey in for help. He came demanding an explanation from Wade but the next thing they know; they are surrounded by dozens of Goblins from "Goblin Nation".

Deadpool could see through the hallucination they were in and came forward to help driving a revamped Spider-Mobile as Dead-Buggy over the building and shot the wrist devices of Spider-Men. Apparently, someone hacked into their Webware and created this illusion and tracking it back, they crash into the one responsible who turned out to be Mysterio.

Both parties leave but Wade sneaks into Parker Industries to find out a group of scientists experimenting on a subject and he kills off every one of them in disgust. Just when he is fully convinced, he calls his employer "Patient Zero" and accepts the contract.

Webhead have a shift in perspective and eventually starts thinking that Wade is not that awful. They even go on a double date with demonic Succubus named Jenny, who is a cousin of Shiklah and Jane Foster, the female Thor! The real fun begins when Deadpool accidentally makes a mess and tries to undo it with a great cost.

Spider-Man/Deadpool – Isn't it Bromantic

Considering one of them is company mascot and another being extremely popular these days because of his R-rated movie, Marvel Comics had to put together Spider-Man and Deadpool for an inevitable team-up, which ended up being a monthly ongoing series by writer Joe Kelly (Emperor Joker, Justice League Elite) and Scott Aukerman.

Also, artists Ed McGuinness (Amazing X-Men – The Quest For Nightcrawler, Avengers – X-Sanction) and Reilly Brown (Deadpool – Dracula's Gauntlet, Deadpool & The Mercs For Money – Mo' Mercs, Mo' Monkeys) were brought in to pull this off in "Isn't it Bromantic" storyline comprising issues #01-05 and 8 from the brand-new series.

Bizarreness About Truth

Though these two doesn't get along and one of them pissed off another by being part of a badass team in "Uncanny Avengers – Lost Future", proves putting them together successfully is a tough job. Wade Wilson helped Peter Parker during a dirty job that involves them dipping into human filth by Hydro-Man, going to Hell and both of them dying.

Reference from 1994 crossover event "Clone Saga", "One More Day" story arc following the events of Civil War as well as Doctor Strange was mentioned at one point. Entities like Death and Mephisto makes cameo appearance because of their unconventional ties to these two iconic characters, who will return in upcoming arc titled "Side Pieces".

Spider-Man – Ends of the Earth | Comics

Octavious attempts to capture the newborn son that Menace gave birth of, believing it to be the offspring of Norman Osborn (in "Origin of the Species"). He thinks that the baby might be a source of the cure he desperately needs but looses interest upon learning that Harry Osborn is the father of the child. He even approached Tony Stark for help with no luck as well (in Invincible Iron Man – Unfixable).

So, he decides to be remembered even after his death and reforms his team of Sinister Six again with Chameleon, Electro, Mysterio, Rhino and Sandman along with himself as the leader of the team for one last time. First up, he and his goons invade Baxter Building where Spider-Man and Future Foundation engaged them while Octavious plans to steal one of Reed Richard's inventions for his plan.

Then Avengers Academy is attacked next and Intelligencia is defeated by the Six with no one else out there to conquer the world. Doctor Octavious actually plans to simply burn everything on Earth with his “Octavian Lens”, while his Sinister Six is busy fighting with Spidey and The Avengers.

Old Man Logan | Comics
Long before everything gone under the rule of super-villains, Logan was a mutant with animalistic nature and a healing factor that made him into a Weapon X operative Wolverine and eventually an X-Man. He was leading his life in adventure with the X-Men, until the villain uprising when Mysterio tricked him into killing all of his fellow teammates and afterwards, his grief made him abandon his heroics.

In his exile, he met Maureen and settled down with their two kids in Hulkland. Then he went on a road trip with Hawkeye as a hired guide, killed Red Skull and came back too late to pay his rent money. As the Hulk gang got bored and murdered his family, he unsheathed his claws again for revenge and wiped out the entire Banner-Family with ruthless efficiency.

The incursions of worlds have destroyed the Multiverse (Time Runs Out) and he found himself on God Doom's Battleworld. He ended up in Deadlands, where he found She-Hulk among the undead and convinced her to help him get out. Awoken in a new world, Logan was unaware of the fact that his counterpart of this world is long-dead, yet he decided to kill the ones who doomed his reality.

So, he faced Totally Awesome Hulk but backed out upon learning it was not Banner himself. In search of Hawkeye, he found Kate Bishop, leading him to a meet Captain America. Logan was found by Storm; the current leader of X-Men and is enrolled into the team after a time-displaced Jean Grey convinced him to (X-Haven). He also fought in Civil War II and the Inhumans/X-Men War.

Back for Redemption

Following "Death of Wolverine", Marvel was in a crisis for Wolverine in their publication and they made X-23 take the mantle. However, there was still a void and so; they used the events of "Secret Wars" to bring the version of the hero who was also having a live-action movie released in 2017 titled "Logan". Although, this version of Wolverine is considerably slow and weak, he still is the best there is at what he does.

Daredevil – Guardian Devil | Comics

Karen Page is gone for six months; leaving Matt Murdock completely broken and have his Catholic faith shaken.

Matt Murdock and his long-time love interest Karen Page has been through a lot that they probably wouldn't have survived without each other's support. She went on a separation with him to rediscover herself, leaving Matt in an angered state behind.

She has been gone for almost six months now and all he is left with now is his good old' Catholic faith, which is also pretty shaken these days. So, he heads to church for a confession as he is having a hard time to remember the Lord but it is cut short when he hears something.

A 16 year old girl, Gwyneth suddenly finds out that she was four months pregnant and her catholic parents find it very shameful. One morning she wake up seeing her parents getting murdered in front of her and so, she was running from home.

She gave birth to a baby on her own and as she was about to hit by a car, costumed crime-fighting superhero Daredevil came to her rescue out of nowhere and knocked the attackers down. When he turns back to ask the girl questions and he was left alone to face the cops for the mess he just made.

Later at Nelson and Murdock law firm, Matt was still unable to shake off the thoughts of Karen when his friend and partner Foggy Nelson introduces a client of a multi-million dollar divorce case named Lydia McKenzie but he hears the heartbeats of that running girl from midnight and her infant child.

Eventually she comes to his office next day claiming an Angel sent her to meet him and she apparently knows who he really is. She hands him over her child to keep it safe from the people chasing after her and then leaves at once.

Matt was astound to learn that she never having engaged in a sexual encounter with anyone before, which means that the child is either a messiah or could be an Antichrist. He called in his former flame and an active Avenger member, Black Widow who thought it was a booty call just like old times.

Natasha Romanov later tries to protect the child from harm upon hearing his side of the story when Murdock even violently attacks her to get the baby. Meanwhile, Karen Page suddenly shows up at his door after having the shocking revelation of being HIV positive because of her time as a drug-addicted porn star in past.

Foggy is suddenly found accused for a murder of a divorcee with whom he was having a secret affair for some time. This led him to be fired by the law firm of his own mother to avoid further problems regarding this case which also disgusts Matthew. While trying to find answers to his questions, Daredevil came across his arch-enemy Bullseye.

He returns to get a piece on him for ol' time's sake and left a lot of bodies behind trying to get the baby. The friendly neighborhood Spider-Man also came by to visit him briefly. Murdock is probably going to lose it all soon or getting mad for real but what on Earth are Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Strange and demon lord Mephisto doing in all these?
