Update on Peter

Just in case you were wondering where Peter was, there he is. Still stuck in bed, with the flu. Watching television. Amazing Spider-Man: The Most Exciting Comic Strip EVER.

See if this were Texas, the Vulture would have been shot and killed already and this story arc would have ended weeks ago.

FIRST COMMENT, WOO HOO!!

If he likes the outside so much, why did he excape through the tunnels? He could've just flown away.

The Vulture is a criminal mastermind, obviously. We cannot even begin to understand his ways.

"Look! Isn't that the Vulture?!"

"No, it's ANOTHER guy with a skin-tight green suit, fuzzy white collar, and 10-foot wings who talks to himself and steals stuff."

And the Vulture's reign of terror continues. He's now robbed a rooftop party and held up two money transports. Yawn. They're gonna revoke his Supervillains' Club card for lack of originality and menace.

In the very early days of Superman, he was always defeating criminal gangs who were doing the usual kind of things -- bank robberies and the like -- before the creators realized that a superhero needed supervillains. This is the reverse: we have a supervillain staging crimes worthy of a couple of small-time hoods.

Well, if he did super-villainy things, then we'd need a superhero to take him out, and where would we find one of those?

Spidey's always talking about how he recovered from the knockout gas or that toxin so quickly thanks to his handy-dandy spiderpowers. So, why has common influenza virus completely laid him out?

The second panel makes me laugh. He is so pouty! Looks like a 5 year old mad that he has to eat vegetables.

Look at the past few strips:
The Vulture pops out of a sewage line and surprises a few police officers. He then flies around what appears to be a mining shaft, or maybe a museum... nope, that's a subway tunnel. Did he pop out of the sewage line and then... drop back down... to inside the subway line?

Is this strip still in LA? Because I could understand people being shocked to see anyone emerge from a subway tunnel, considering LA'ers inside joke is "we have a subway system?"
