    Tapping into the Spider-Man Beyond realm, this issue serves not only as a fun team-up between the title characters but puts a definitive statement in place about who and what Felicia Hardy/Black Cat is as a person and character. This is the perfect epilogue to properly close out what was truly among the best titles that Marvel Comics was publishing the past few years.

    The creative team behind the hit Black Cat series are reunited once again! Jed MacKay and C.F. Villa deliver an unexpected team-up between Black Cat and Mary Jane Watson, with Peter Parker's life hanging in the balance. Having two of the most important people in Spider-Man's life be the protagonists in a tie-in to Amazing Spider-Man's Beyond era works so well. Mary Jane and Felicia Hardy are presented as resourceful and intelligent lead characters, making me wish we could see more of the duo working together in the future. A connection to an awesome 2020 miniseries also enhances the story's greatness.

    But Why Tho?

    Mary Jane/Black Cat: Beyond #1features an unorthodox team-up between the two most important ladies in Peter Parker's life, resulting in a fast-paced and funny tale. Between this story and the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man #87, which is slated to debut later this week, I'm glad MacKay has joined the Beyond Saga.

    Being a huge fan of MacKay, Campbell and of course Felicia, with this creative team they would have to go some way to disappoint me. Safe to say that didn't happen. With Felicia's almost obsession with a certain red-head in her own, it's great to see the pair together. By continuing this theme, MacKay gets to build on Mary Jane and Felicia's relationship, although maybe not in the same way that Peter dreams. A fantastic book, that goes to show that dropping Black Cat from schedule is a huge mistake for Marvel.

    Well worth your time and an example of how to work two side characters into their own story and have it turn out well. It reminded me of some of the War of the Bounty Hunters one-shot stories.
