I really enjoyed the Lois and Clark dynamic here, and see guys, this is why the wait and tension was all worth it.

What a powerful conversation between Barbara and Jim!

2. Spider-Girls #1 – Was Her Name May?/ I Need A Minute
This issue had some powerfully emotional scenes, this was one of the highlights.
1. Spider-Girls #1 – Fine
5. Action Comics #1004 – Canoodling
Caught in the act by her own paper, and Clark has to find out that way. Nicely done.
4. Action Comics #1004 – Great Caesar’s– Ghost!
Not difficult to tell what just happened there. Love the line, love the reunion!
3. Spider-Girls #1 – I Need a Minute/Was Her Name May?
This was heartbreaking and touching as Annie learns that Mayday could have been her older sister had she lived in this timeline. And MJ is torn up seeing her all grown up. Great scene.
2. X-Men Red #9 – Degrees of Experience
Gaby continues to be panel gold as she relates to Jean Grey in an unexpected way taking Jean by surprise.

Wow… okay, so Sentry is like full on dark Superman now. He fixed Billy all right… for good!

Mikey gets a good hit in!

Superior Spider-Man is back.
Honorable Mention: X-Men Red #9 – X-Men Have Been Through So Much Weirder….
I love that Jean has to remind Nightcrawler that sleeping with her time displace other universe daughter isn’t weird to the X-Men.

Another great vulnerable moment. So simple, so powerful and so beautiful.
5. Infinity Warps Sorcerer Supreme #2 – Captain America is Hot
This scene had me chuckle. Even Satan’s worshippers think Stephen Rogers is hot!!
4. Batgirl #28 – I’m Proud of You
This issue had great moments between Babs and her old dad. This one shed a tear for me.
3. True Believers What if Kraven the Hunter Killed Spider-Man – She Attempts To Be Stoic
This is what a What if Story is all about. As a reader in this issue you get to witness the pain that Mary Jane is suffering through due to Peter’s death.
2. True Believers What if Kraven the Hunter Killed Spider-Man – Your Nephew Was Spider-Man
Out of all these years, Aunt May never knew about Peter being Spider-Man. However, in this what if issue Aunt May finally finds out the truth when her nephew is dead. How powerful is that moment!
1. True Believers What if Kraven the Hunter Killed Spider-Man – Back in My Day
For me this week, the comics that were released were mediocre-at-best that’s why this reprint of a what-if comic gets so much praise. I truly miss at times the way storytelling was in comics from the 70s, 80s and early 90s. Richard Howell delivers in this story’s emotion from a one shot at the time really means absolutely nothing because it’s not canon, but delivers in ways that you cared about this book if it was to really happen. Not some cheap gimmick that Marvel has done with there most recent What if books. This issue ended off with Mary Jane having a purpose after Peter’s death, and that was restoring the superhero community and being their spokesperson.
