Alpha Flight Vol. 3 #3

May 20, 2004

The new Alpha Flight team members take a bit of getting used to they are not your traditional type heroes. Which does make for a nice change. An old man, a bar tender, a psychotic killer, a sap, and a guy with a really long name all led by a big hairy orange guy. It will make for interesting team dynamics as we see how they work together.

Dec 21, 2003

We do get a good Spider-Man fight. But Aunt May steals this issue. Spider-Man better hope she never turns evil he wouldn't stand a chance. We all know with her loving heart and soul that could never happen though. The art is beautiful. May is still a hot babe. MJ is hot too but May is just as hot if you don't believe me just ask Peter.

Amazing Spider-Man (1999) #503

Feb 11, 2004

The art by John Romita Jr. is showing Spider-Man in all his agility. Loki is shown as more grandiose as befits a deity. Morwen is shown the same way to let you know she is a being with power. You know her plans to destroy the world are real. Poor Spidey he was the one that let her into our Universe. Now he just has to kick her back out. It won't be that easy.
