    If last issue hadn't delivered essentially the exact same story that we received in this issue I might have been able to work up some more enthusiasm for this material. However as it stands while there's are funny moments to be found, and the overriding plot that is driving this arc is an interesting one, the simple fact of the matter is that this issue is essentially a repeat of the previous issue, with the only difference being the villain inserted into the mix is now the Scorpion. Zeb Wells is a pretty amusing writer, and his name is starting to become a welcome sight in the credit boxes, but I am a bit concerned that he's creating his plots simply to act as framing devices for his jokes, as after he sets up an amusing premise (e.g. Spider-Man trapped at an MTV style beach party, Spider-Man being an unwitting participant in a televised fight), we get very precious forward movement, as the focus shifts to simply delivering funny moments within the confines of original premise.
