This is the 3rd book in a series of 3 written by Adam-Troy Castro. This series is by far my favorite series in the Spider-Man novels. The storyline is enticingly original, incoporates all of my favorite Spidey villains (while following the timeline of the comic- unfortunately Mysterio dies) and really gives a great dynamic of Peter/MJ's relationship. I have read this series numerous times and will again and again! A great finish to the trilogy and a very interesting twist in the world of Spider-Man! A must read for any Spidey fan! ( )

Gentleman, not.

At least if you want to have the Sinister Six working for you, anyway.

Castro has put together a pretty decent Spider-Man yarn here, from explaining the facts of lameness to a new bad-guy calling himself Disk Jockey who apparently is so oblivious, while living in Marvel New York, that he has no idea what superheroes or supervillains are.

Neither Spider-Man or the retired newsagent he has to help out from this doofus can believe it.

There are more serious problems though than the aforementioned character, not to mention the Sinister Six, a new member of whom may be linked to Spidey's past, or even related to him.

Luckily getting away with their confrontation this time, the webslinger has a little help in the form of the raygun wielding SAFE agents.

A few bits and pieces scattered throughout, some homages to other writers with 'an Oltion generator', an Askegren, etc., and a truly bizarre cameo in Wold-Newton style at the end.

Oh, and Wolverine.

Spider-Man battles the most dangerous Sinister Six line-up ever: Doctor Octopus, Electro, Mysterio, the Vulture, the tragic but deadly Pity, and the group's mysterious leader, the Gentleman - a villain who had a hand in the deaths of Spider-Man's parents! But what neither Spider-Man nor his enemies know is that the Gentleman is about to set his master plan into motion: destroying all the financial markets in the world and make himself the richest man in the world. As for the villainess Pity, Spider-Man has become convinced that she is his long-lost sister. But to get Pity to reject her life of crime and break free of the Gentleman's control, he needs conclusive proof - proof that only the X-Man known as Wolverine has. But time is running out for Spider-Man, for Pity, and for the world.
