Panel 1: Full page. Mary Jane lies on her bed looking bored. There are shopping bags beside the bed.
Ok, had coffee with Carlie, saw a movie with Carlie, went shopping with Carlie, had hotdogs with Carlie, came home to find Peter still gone.
Yep, it’s official, I’m honeymooning with Carlie Cooper.
I’m sure Peter’ll be home soon.
Oo, maybe Hydroman and Sandman teamed up again. Mud is kinda sexy.
Of course, he’d have to tear his suit to get any on him.
Man, I don’t wanna sew Spider-suits on my honeymoon.
He’s probably just webbing up the Hypno Hustler for crashing senior singles night at the disco bar…
My parents died a long time ago, leaving me an orphan.
Mary, you’re beautiful and I’m a secret agent. Give me one good reason we wouldn’t be a couple so spectacular they’d tell stories about us.
Because they’ll all be classified.
Panel 3: Largest panel on the page. A collage of Richard and Mary’s lives, beginning on the left with the two kissing in wedding clothes, flowing into Mary rescuing Richard (in scuba gear) from the sea, into the two holding newborn Peter, and finally Nick Fury handing them his card.
If we go in as man and wife, it shows stability and helps create back story.
Let’s face it, when he’s deciding whether or not to trust me, he’ll be thinking a spy couldn’t possibly have the balls to bring his wife along on an undercover mission.
Panel 3: Richard and Mary’s bedroom. We see the two from the neck up, kissing.
Panel 4: The Red Skull is shooting Richard in the head. Mary is screaming with tears streaming down her face. There are two henchmen walking into the room.
Panel 5: The two henchmen are grabbing the still-screaming Mary as the Red Skull kneels down rifling through Richards pockets.
Cut the thing out of her.
Bring me her body when you’re done.
I got to know you this way, Peter. I witnessed every triumph and tragedy, and through your face got to experience your feelings about everything.
But it came to a point when things started taking a darker turn, and I didn’t understand why.
Panel 1: Largest panel on the page. Simon is being dragged in the front door of the same mental asylum we saw Gabriel Stacy in, screaming at the top of his lungs, out of his mind.
“With so much of my life about the study of you and Spider-Man, and the entire point of my life at the time being investigating and finding you, too much of me went out the window when you changed the world.
I KNOW WHO SPIDER-MAN IS!!! I KNOW WHO HE IS!!! TELL ME!!! TELL ME WHO HE IS!!!
I’m truly sorry you captured my interest. But don’t worry, I’m fairly certain my last test subject’s death gave me all the data I need to keep you alive.
Panel 1: Full page. Simon and the man are casually strolling down the hall outside Peter’s office in Oscorp, with Peter over the man’s shoulder. Simon is passing directly beside Menken, who he hands an envelope full of money.
Thank you for your services, Mr. Menken.
We’ll take it from here.

That's a good justification for them to have done this mission together, at least under comic book logic. I can't remember--has this been used as the rationale before or did you come up with it?
By far the best issue so far, but I'm sure you knew that already.
I was little surprised to see you continuing to reference One More Day and using it as a pivotal plot point in the story you're telling. I'm not sure how I feel about that. Part of me wants your story to be completely free from that taint. On the other hand, it makes sense for motivating Black Spider, at least initially. Just don't take to long to get us to the point where we can completely forget OMD, please.

Curious, was this a statement on the issue's content of the fact that it actually got posted?

Spideydude wrote:Well the issue blew my mind. THIS is how you use continuity. It's not even retroactive really, because so little was known about Mary and Rich that it fit seemlessly. Although the whole ripping out the mothers womb was a bit... gross, but that's the intention.
Simon is a badass. Pure and Simple.
Was Vin the other guy who knows or is it someone else? (Ie Harry)
