Spider-Man Versus Kurt Kordok: Day Seventeen (Hostage Crisis Day Four)

Come on, Kordok. Spider-Man can just jump around or something. You'll never beat him, no matter how many hostages you take. As for Jonah Jameson, well, he sometimes gets like that when it looks like the wall-crawler is going down. Basically, whenever Jonah isn't the one who paid for the person putting him down, or is vouching public support for the person putting Spider-Man down. I think there's a theory going around that Jonah merely harps on Spider-Man so that the hero will keep doing his best, and Spider-Man sort of looks to Jonah as a surrogate father-figure whom he can never please. Oh, and Spider-Man? You should have said "You shouldn't have come back, Dara". After all, she was kidnapped and forced to come to the stadium.

TIL: Jonah's facial expression in panel three. You know, the only panel he's in today.

So... after Spider-Man's decades of battling super-villains and performing daredevil stunts, we're supposed to believe that he is in deadly peril because some goon is six feet away with a handgun? (And don't even get me started on Dara thinking she could "help" by running back into the stadium with her hands securely bound.)

Has Stan Lee (if he really does write this sludge) had a mental-status exam recently?

This whole storyline needs to get wrapped up very quickly. It's just awful.

What also needs to be done is a change with the creative team ASAP.
