A fairly enjoyable introduction issue, as Jeph Loeb plays with the rather impressive splash that Mary Jane made on the scene when she was added to the book's cast. This issue is also quite a bit of fun as it was revealed after the fact that Mary Jane knew all about Peter's secret when she was first introduced, and as such her behavior in this issue nicely reflects this idea, as we see her acting like Peter's the best thing since sliced bread, and she also actively helps Peter arrive at the site for some super-hero action, by doing everything but help him put on his costume. Now the battle with the Lizard is pretty standard fair, especially if you're a longtime reader & have read well over a dozen similar such encounters between these two. Still there's some fairly amusing lines deliver by Spider-Man during the fight, and Mary Jane is used to such good effect in this story, that this issue is simply a fun return visit to this classic period of Spider-Man's history.
