Amazing Spider-Man #700.1-700.5

Post by Col_Fury » Tue May 09, 2017 5:41 am

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700.1 (February 2014)
By David Morrell & Klaus Janson

APPEARANCES:
Spider-Man, J. Jonah Jameson, Aunt May (also in fb), Uncle Ben (in fb), bystanders

FLASHBACK:
Ben and May do some gardening.
SYNOPSIS:
It’s November and a winter storm is coming. Spider-Man is feeling sick. Jameson wants to run a special issue accusing Spider-Man of purposefully wrecking public transit systems so he can get credit for saving people. Spider-Man sleep past his alarm and wakes up to snow everywhere. Meanwhile, a tree crashes through May’s window. Spider-Man decides to swing across town and check on May, just because.

NOTE:
To be continued!

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700.2 (February 2014)
By David Morrell & Klaus Janson

APPEARANCES:
Spider-Man, Aunt May, bystanders

SYNOPSIS:
Spider-Man makes his way across town. Meanwhile, Aunt May passes out. Spider-Man starts to hallucinate, but soon finds himself a May’s house. He cleans up the crashed tree, makes May soup and clears her sidewalk before taking a nap.

NOTE:
Peter has an apartment (no roommate) in NYC while the Daily Bugle (run by Jameson) is his main source of income; May lives by herself in Queens. Classic red & blue Spider-Man suit.

JJJ had a heart attack in ASM 546; as a result he lost the Bugle. Spider-Man is publicly active here, so not during the period leading up to ASM 546. Since it’s the red & blue suit it’s before Civil War. Since Spider-Man lives alone, this is then before ASM 290 & ASM@ 21. Once again, since it’s the red & blue suit, we’re now looking at some point before ASM 252 & Secret Wars.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700.3 (February 2014)
By Joe Casey & Timothy Green

APPEARANCES:
Spider-Man, Firebrand (Russ Broxtel), Eel (Eddie Lavell), Captain America (Barnes (bts), Puff Adder (Gordon Fraley), Flying Tiger, Tinkerer (Phineas Mason, bts), Shocker (Herman Schultz), Thing (in fb), Rhino (in fb), Black Lodge: Surgeon General, Tiff, Sapphire, Mona, Darla

FLASHBACK:
Thing fights Rhino (technically during the main story).
SYNOPSIS:
Spider-Man fights Firebrand, but Firebrand sets Spider-Man on fire, giving him third degree burns across 80% of his body. They both pass out. The Black Lodge arrives and takes both of them to their super villain hospital, assuming Spider-Man is a villain (his costume burned away). After his surgery, Spider-Man eventually realizes where he is, and the doctor figures out that his patient is Spider-Man.

NOTE:
To be continued!

2nd Story:
By Jen Van Meter & Emma Rios

APPEARANCES:
Black Cat, FBI agent North (dressed like Spider-Man), rich guy Martin & his daughter Mina Martin, bystanders

SYNOPSIS:
Black Cat investigates who is destroying priceless works of art and discovers it’s a jealous daughter.

NOTE:
At a time when Black Cat still has her own investigation company. Probably at the time when she was hanging around with the “Marvel Divas.”

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700.4 (February 2014)
By Joe Casey & Timothy Green

APPEARANCES:
Spider-Man, Flying Tiger, Puff Adder, Eel, Shocker, Firebrand, Black Lodge: Surgeon General, Tess

SYNOPSIS:
The Surgeon General tells the villains that Spider-Man is in the building. Shocker declines to go after Spider-Man and leaves; the rest attack. As the villains fight Spider-Man the Black Lodge staff evacuates. Spider-Man defeats the villains and rescues them when an explosion occurs. His burns now healed, he goes home and takes a nap.

NOTE:
Apparently, Spider-Man can mostly heal from third degree burns in a day and a half.

Classic red & blue Spider-Man suit, at a time when he uses mechanical web-shooters. Also, James Barnes is Captain America (“since when did Cap use a gun?”). Anytime from Secret Invasion to Fear Itself, really.

2nd Story:
By Clay McLeod Chapman & Javier Rodriguez

APPEARANCES:
Spider-Man, Casey Mitchell & his classmates inc Buddy Tyson

SYNOPSIS:
A kid lies about being friends with Spider-Man; if Spider-Man doesn’t show up at school tomorrow he’ll get beaten up. The kid tracks down Spider-Man (by setting a roof on fire) and tells him about it; Spider-Man tells the kid he shouldn’t tell lies and swings off. The next day Spider-Man arrives at school and encourages the kid to fend for himself with words, if not his fists.

NOTE:
Classic red & blue Spider-Man suit. Could happen pretty much anywhere.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700.5 (February 2014)
By Brian Reed & Sean Chen

APPEARANCES:
Spider-Man, Human Torch (also in fb), Thing, Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Mary Jane, future Thing (in fb), future Human Torch

FLASHBACK:
Thing from the future warns Johnny of calamity!
SYNOPSIS:
The Human Torch thinks Mr. Fantastic is accidentally going to destroy the universe, so he storms into Spider-Man’s apartment and asks for his help. When the Fantastic Four arrive Johnny flies away and hides in Mary Jane’s apartment. Everyone gets together and explains things, then waits for sundown. Spider-Man realizes it was a prank from the future. That night, Johnny from the future tries to pull the same prank on Thing, but he sees it coming so Johnny goes back home.

NOTE:
In the future, everyone has beards (except Sue).

Millar/Hitch - Hickam/Eaglesham era FF uniforms. Mary Jane & the FF know that Peter is Spider-Man. Peter and Mary Jane do not live together. Classic red & blue Spider-Man suit. Sometime after ASM 600 and before FF 581-588.

2nd Story:
By Kevin Grevioux & Lee Weeks

APPEARANCES:
Spider-Man (also in fb), Mary Jane, bystanders

FLASHBACK:
Spider-Man stops some bank robbers, but a young bystander who tries to help gets shot.
SYNOPSIS:
Spider-Man brings a shot kid to the hospital. He later blames himself, but Mary Jane tries to tell him it’s not his fault. Peter Parker visits the kid in the hospital the next day, but he dies. Peter goes to the funeral, and the kid’s parents tell Peter (who they know as photographer Peter Parker) to tell Spider-Man it wasn’t his fault, and give him a comic about Spider-Man the kid drew a few years ago.

NOTE:
Peter and Mary Jane are living together. Classic red & blue Spider-Man suit. At the very least, sometime before Civil War.

Shouldn't this be the Surgeon General II? Peter and Matt fought a female Surgeon General in Daredevil 305-306.
