Overlord of Crime?

I think Jameson made up that "Overlord of Crime" bit on the spot, since Kurt Kordok has supposedly been so secretive that his hired thugs were afraid to reveal his identity. I have a better name for Kordok: THE KINGPIN OF CRIME. With each utterance of the Kingpin's name, we come one step closer to me being totally wrong. Also, that little bit about Britney Spears not being Spider-Man's wife? A fair stab at being relevant.

Thing I Liked:
-I dunno. I guess Spider-Man's pose in the last panel. It's classic.

What's with Dara's costume change?

It's the same costume. It's just that there's a different colorist for the Sunday and weekday strips.

I don't get it. The last panel in Friday's strip had Jameson exclaiming that Dorset wasn't Spidey's wife after all, but I don't know how he finally made that connection based on what he saw on the tape, and since then there's been no mention of it at all, it seems Jameson has gone back to believing she is his wife (maybe he's keeping that bit of info for himself in the meantime?). Hopefully how Jameson came to that conclusion will be revealed once Kordok is unmasked as being Old Man McGuinty who owns the abandoned amusement park on Rodeo Drive. And he would've got away with it too if it wasn't for that meddling teenager.

that guy: Dara told Jameson outright that she wasn't married to Spider-Man, but he reasoned that he couldn't publicize that it was a lie without making a fool of himself. His exclamation Friday was just expository.

aaron t.: Oops, you're right. I forgot about that part. Thanks!
