Peter Parker has given up being Spider-Man. Heroes like Human Torch and Daredevil and others wonder where he is and talk about him.
Peter Parker has his dream job as a scientist with a private firm but Scorpion busts in, having been hired to find him.
And Spider-Man arrives to break up the fight.
The mystery of who the new Spider-Man is resolved quickly and fairly easily next issue, but this title will overlap in continuity with the other rebooted Spider-titles, which is, of course, annoying.
Rafael Kayanan illustrates a back-up feature explaining Scorpion’s new gear. John Byrne writes and draws a short character piece as well.
