I admire that this issue made an attempt to resolve this conflict in a manner rather than using the overly familiar battle to the death scenario where the villain inevitably dies a death that is later revealed to be simply a close encounter that left them licking their wounds. However, the ending that Paul Jenkins offers up just doesn't work, as it requires behavior from both men that just doesn't hold true. I simply can't see Spider-Man walking away from a villain with the knowledge that this party was moments before boasting of how he's going to order the deaths of people he cares deeply for, and I can't see Norman being swayed in the slightest by Peter's claim that his love for Gwen's memory is too powerful for him to sully it by allowing his hatred of the man who killed her to overshadow it. It's a nice sounding idea, but Norman knows Peter well enough that he should dismiss this idea out of hand. Read Full Review
