    Yeah, we don't see who that is. And I would've thought Julia would want to do this without required some deal to be made. I don't think it's Madame Web.

    Could be Madam Web - the red coat is giving it away.

    This is why I don't bother getting invested in books like Spider-boy and Superior Spider-Man, because what is the point if they keep using the same gimmik (seriously - nearly every spider person made a deal with the devil or someone else mystically powerful, sacrificing something to save a person/people) or use interesting concepts, like Otto remembering Peter is Spider-Man and he was Superior when he took over his body or when Peter was stabbed with a dagger and live an alternate life in the adjectiveless title, only to get rid of them in the end?

    Bendis will be pleased. I noticed a 1610 Jessica Drew cameo.

    I also noticed Spiderling appeared twice. Her younger version with Renew Your Vows Spider-Man and Spinneret, and her teenage version on her own a few pages later. Is this effectively retconning RYV as being two separate universes instead of having timeskipped? It would certainly solve the issue of the X-Men apparently not changing in that time.

    I liked the ending of the issue. Bailey finds himself in front of Jonah in the 1960s cartoon world... and says, "oh boy", just like Sam did at the end of every classic Quantum Leap episode (except the last, due to the scene getting cut and replaced with the "never made it home" caption when the show was cancelled).

    I think the younger Annie is the one who cameo'd in ATSV with her mother.

    Same. I will never stop extolling Spider Wars for laying the groundwork for Spider-Verse, though I think the animated films have come closest to recapturing the spirit of Spider Wars, in the sense of using the multiverse as a device to explore and expand the character of Spider-Man, as well as what Spider-Man represents as an idea(l) and what it means to be Spider-Man in the first place.
    The spider is always on the hunt.
