On a terrible day not long ago, a single bullet tore into Peter Parker's beloved Aunt May, triggering a cascade of helplessness, revenge and desperation that finally cost Peter the life he had always known and almost cost Spider-Man everything he had ever stood for. But what if the bullet had found a different target? If Spider-Man was willing to break all his rules for the woman who raised him, how far would he go for the woman he loves? "What If Mary Jane Had Been Shot Instead of Aunt May?"

    The final pages are chilling, but also deliver exactly what a "What If?" story should: shocking change that makes you question if what "really happened" was the better story choice. That is the second crucial element, because if the reader isn't wondering that, what was the point? Thankfully, Steven Grant comes through here and provokes that question. I'm not sure what the answer is, but I do want to see a "What If? Spider-Man Back in Black" #2. Read Full Review
