Amazing Spider-Man #47 – Love is in the Air

Peter Parker really can’t catch a break.

After the mess with MJ, the Gang War, now guess who’s back … Chasm aka his clone Ben Reilly.

We begin ASM #47 with Ben reunited with his sadistic love Hallows’ Eve.

Meanwhile, we get a glimpse of another possible love connection – Peter and Aunt Anna’s nurse, Shay! Wait what!? MJ is gonna love this one.

If you know Peter, he basically puts his foot in it at first, but his boyish, superhero charm is turned on later in the date to salvage things.

Also classic Peter, he gets a Spider-Man type call mid-way through the dinner, yet on his way out says, “I like you a lot!”

Only Peter could get away with such nonsense over and over!

Old Flames Everywhere

Meanwhile, Peter is called to help another classic love interest (this one goes wayyyy back) Betty Brant.

Looks like Kingsley hired some goons with guns to keep her from digging into his business.

But never fail, Spider-Man crashes in and easily dispatches with said hire guns.

Betty explains that she believes she can get Ned Leeds out of jail and can prove Kingsley aka the real Hobgoblin brainwashed and framed her husband.

While trying to retrieve the Winkler device to prove Ned’s innocence, Ben and Peter meet again!

But Ben and Hallows’ Eve are not alone, the Queen Goblin is there as well!

Final Thoughts – 7.5/10

Not much here, more of a setup for next month’s big battle between Peter and Ben. (The cover looks incredible)

But just enough to keep me wanting more.

Clearly Ben needs help and is confused, but Peter needs to get out of his current predicament before he can even begin to think about Ben’s well-being.

We’ll just have to wait and see what’s in store. Also we are incredibly close to issue #50, which means we could get something special coming…
