    A searing vision of Spider-Man's future, brought to you by superstar Kaare Andrews (INCREDIBLE HULK).
    They finally did it. Kicked them to the curb. The "capes and tights" crowd -- there's no place for them in the Big Apple anymore. Peter Parker? He can't even remember what it was like to don the red and blue and swing through the night sky. Doesn't want to, anyway. After all, there's nothing left to fight for, is there? That is until an old "friend" appears on Peter's doorstep, bearing a package and a message -- and everything changes. If it's not Peter's responsibility, then whose is it?

    So Mary Jane dies? I think that is a huge problem with future solications, if not careful they spoil current storylines. I can't saw I didn't see it coming though.

    Since Spider Girl is back from the brink of cancellation (again) I must slavishly buy everything related. Including A-Next. (And hey, Katie Power as an Avenger? Why not? )

    Exiles and nextWave will also be must haves. Maybe newuniversal, but I'll give that a looksie before getting.
