Characters Appearing: Calypso, Debra Whitman, Kraven the Hunter, Marcy Kane, Morris Sloan, Spider-Man
Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #65
Issue(s): Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #65
Calypso supports Kraven during the fight by throwing him various weapons...
....and even playing drums that mess with Spider-Man's spider-sense
And Kraven is fine with that. But she goes too far for him when she hits him with a poisoned crossbow dart.
Kraven has used drugs before himself, so if he's ok with Calypso helping in the fight in other ways, it seems like a fine line for him to be upset about this. But it is the case, and he even stops Calypso from finishing Spider-Man off with a spear before the cops show up and take both of them to jail.
Calypso in her previous appearance might have played something of a stereotypical manipulative Lady Macbeth kind of role, but i liked her better than this poor simpering thing.
During the fight, there's a scene reminiscent of the one that got Captain Stacy killed but i guess people have the sense to stand a little further back at this point.
I do like Spider-Man's new mask, but i guess it wasn't popular and didn't catch on.
Also in this issue, Peter continues to ignore Debra (i think i could have written that in every appearance of hers for the past two years)...
...and get closer with Marcy Kane. You might think from this scene that the normally all-business Marcy was interested in getting a little closer to Peter, but we'll see soon that they aren't as far along as this may imply.
