Amazing Spider-Man – Friends and Foes | Comics

Peter Parker's roommate Boomerang takes him to the Bar With No Name only to get in a brawl with a mob of super villains!

Earlier, Adrian Toomes chases one of his henchmen, Dougie as Vulture for stealing from him. Toomes picked him up from the car he was running in and got taken aback when the barbeque sauce on Dougie's t-shirt starts talking, only for Black Ant to come out punching before Taskmaster took him down with an electric net.

Peter Parker has been back on his rocker swinging as the Amazing Spider-Man he is and luckily got back with his supermodel girlfriend Mary Jane Watson once again. Many of his regular villains have sort of disappeared but he still cannot stop thinking about his roommate Fred Myers, who is also a known super criminal named Boomerang.

While they were making out in Peter's apartment, Fred was sneaking up on them like a creep and then introduces himself to MJ. Even though she thinks he is a decent guy and his other roommate Randy Robertson is all for giving Fred a second chance, Peter cannot bring himself to believe that a scumbag like that can change all of a sudden.

Previously, Boomerang has robbed the Museum of Natural History and took something that even got Mayor Wilson Fisk very interested. However, the former Kingpin never really admitted it to public and swept it under the rug for some unknown reason. Wearing his work costume, Fred takes Peter to the Bar with No Name to hang out for a night.

In actual, he took Pete there to win big at "Spider-Man Trivia Night" when he learned from Randy that he has been a photographer for Spidey and knows an awful lot about him. Although largely against the idea, Peter soon starts having a lot of fun answering trivia questions of his alter ego, surrounded by a room full of his worst enemies.

News of Fred being there reaches to Mayor Fisk and his assistant tries to reach out but it failed miserably because of Boomerang being a jerk. To teach him a lesson for his defiance, an extremely infuriated Fisk offers a hefty prize on his head that got every other patron of the bar interested in breaking the sacred rule of the Bar with No Name.

Things turned out pretty heated there and Peter is forced to team-up with one of his former foe to get out of the mess. Not only did they put up a great fight but Fred even took a blast from Scorcher to save his bunkmate. Fisk deices to go all out on them but the mysterious entity with a huge centipede then pays him a visit to stop him from doing that.

Odessa Drake took it upon her to restore the honor of Thieves Guild as its leader and announce their rebirth by sending each members of their group to steal anything and everything valuable from superhero community and Spider-Man is called in by Tony Stark when they swept clean entire Avengers Mansion and Hall of Armor in Stark Tower.

Their chaos has claimed Captain America's Shield, Cyclops' Visor, Eye of Agamotto from Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider's Hell Charger, Punisher's armory of weapons, Thor's hammer and even his Web-Shooters when he was in mid-air. Falling down with no hope of rescue, his old accomplice Black Cat suddenly snatches him out of nowhere.

Although she saved Spidey mid-freefall, the world-class cat burglar did not waste time to take a jab at him soon as they land for being a jerk after the lab accident earlier (Back to Basics). Now these two allies must set aside their differences once again to stop the uprising of Thieves Guild before it is too late for Odessa Drake to pull off a grand heist.

Amazing Spider-Man – Friends and Foes

Following the success of previous storyline "Back to Basics", writer Nick Spencer (Ant-Man – Second-Chance Man, Doctor Strange – Damnation) has returned to collaborate with artist Humberto Ramos (Champions – Change The World, Extraordinary X-Men – X-Haven) for his second arc in Amazing Spider-Man monthly ongoing comic-book series.

Titled "Friends and Foes", the story collects issues #06-10 from the series and explores Peter Parker's relation with one of the costumed enemies of his alter ego, Fred Myers AKA Boomerang in aftermath of "Secret Empire". Spencer has created new room for character development of this second-string mercenary, who is still playing coy.

Once Friend Once Foe

Spidey also patches up his ties with Black Cat and these two goes on a buddy-cop adventure together against a newly formed Thieves Guild. More aspects of his relationship with Mary Jane are given focus and props to Marvel Comics for that. Peter's ex-girlfriend Carlie Cooper returns to inform her of a support group called the Lookups to join.

A mysterious enemy still watches over him from the shadows and it is definitely not Kraven the Hunter, who is also planning his own twisted plot. With more of his old adversaries will be popping out of nowhere with their uniquely sinister agenda and J. Jonah Jameson will tag along in his next action-packed adventure "Lifetime Achievement".

Superior Spider-Man | Comics

When a dying Doctor Octopus discovered that he has only a few days to live on Earth, he decides to be remembered forever even in a negative manner. So along with his newly reformed villainous team of Sinister Six, he unsuccessfully tried to bring upon “Ends of the Earth” but is stopped by the joint effort of Spider-Man and the New Avengers.

It was revealed in “Dying Wish” that during their previous encounter, Doctor Octopus has somehow switched his consciousness with Peter Parker via one of his Octobots and the body of Doc Ock in the prison now holds the mind of Peter. As a final attempt to stop his enemy from getting away, Peter assembles the other villains who thought him to be Doc Ock to stop the one wandering in Spidey’s body.

In a final battle, Peter eventually dies in Doc Ock’s old, fragile body and Octavious has a change of heart at that moment. He promises to take care of business Spidey used to handle and the people he love and will become the Superior Spider-Man.

As Superior Spider-Man, he tussled with The Avengers for being unusually suspicious, fought the reformed Green Goblin, a new Venom, the fourth Hobgoblin, battered second rate villains like Jester and Screwball, destroyed the Kingpin’s lair of The Hand. Meanwhile, a small fraction of Peter’s rebel mind still seems to be roaming around inside of him for gaining control over the mind of Octavious and his unchecked actions.
