In this issue Spider-Man does what all the superheroes should probably do: seek some therapy
- Spoiler: show
I like the concept of the Cape Killers and wish they would be used in other titles too. More could be made of the tension between their anti-vigilante role in NYC and Luke Cage as mayor. In fact Luke Cage as mayor is a criminally underwritten story in the MU right now. But that is a topic for another day. Here Ziglar finally gets around to fleshing out the one original character that he introduced with the Cape Killers. Though still not much more about her except some hints and that she is Dominican. I thought it was odd when Morales said he knows she is good. The only thing he really knows is she hangs out with a bunch of villains because she is serving prison time. It felt like something the author wants us to know rather than an organic line from Miles. Or maybe Ziglar is just showing Morales has a good intuitive sense about people?
Regardless I do like the subtext of this run about how there should not be a stigma for seeking mental health counseling. Even Spider-Man has a therapist!
And that final page sets up a delightful Halloween theme for October's issue!
