Mephisto, Mary Jane and the Red Goblin in Today’s Amazing Spider-Man #796 (SPOILERS)

Posted by February 21, 2018 Comment

I will start off with this. Because it is all certain speculators seem to care about and have been hammering at me. Does the Red Goblin appear as an actual distinctly identified character in Amazing Spider-Man #796. Such that it may justify the $20 plus that some people have been spending on eBay. Does it? Does it? Does it?

No.

But we do see a move in that direction. The deal that is done. And the establishment of an actual symbiotic partnership.

Talking of partnerships though…

First it was marriage. Then, courtesy of Mephisto, it was “lived together”. Now it’s… “used to date”. Is Mephisto still meddling?

No, sorry, he’s all caught up in today’s Doctor Strange: Damnation. Which leaves Mary Jane and Peter plenty of time to catch up. Come by. Revisit. Re…kindle?

Old habits… and next issue? Amazing Spider-Man #797? Stuart Immonen has already teased us

Maybe that one will have the Red Goblin in it.

Or maybe not.
