    The opening is rather cool. Read it right after issue 2 and you might think she’s talking to Peter. Very cleverly done. Unlike the original Stan Lee story, you get to know Mary Jane very well in just a few pages. Also a nice touch, it is hinted that Mary Jane might know that Peter is Spider-Man. Why? Let’s go back in history to the Marvel Graphic Novel Spider-Man: Parallel Lives. There, it is established that MJ knew Peter to be Spider-Man from the day Uncle Ben was murdered. Here, in Spider-Man: Blue #3, she talks about a “photo op” when they see the Lizard in television. Which could be sincere, but she insists that Peter goes there. And when they get there, she makes sure Peter gets behind the police line, as if she just knows he has to be there to do his thing. I’m probably reading something that isn’t there, but hey, I’ve got a weak spot for MJ.

    The fight with the Lizard, on the other hand, is far less expanded than the original. Like with the Rhino fight from the previous issue, this one too only takes key elements from the original story. This time we get to see the very intense fight with the Lizard. But without the injury from the original where Peter has to wear his arm in a sling for a couple of issues. Too bad–the sling made Spidey more vulnerable. He’s not Superman, you know (thanks to Aunt May for that line).
