Issue Review

   March 7, 2017
Disappointing.
It's a fairly generic battle and the big climax makes no sense. Spidey has to save one of his friends. But there is no dilemma as he has no way of knowing which one is which, Green Goblin hasn't said where they are. If he told Peter the location of each hostage then that would be a tough choice.
Despite flaws, it's certainly interesting to see Harry and Peter fighting.
6/10

  I'm pretty sure if you threw a nuclear bomb into a nearby river, that wouldn't really help so much.

  Whew, I was afraid of Flash or MJ becoming a Two-Face type crime lord.

  How many times has someone fingered Peter Parker as Spider-Man only to have the idea laughed off?

  5:2 like the extra-touch of Flash’s epic man-spread

It was all kind of bland, non-existant build up. a lack of any real stakes, this should have been epic instead of perfunctory

  Ugh, a near-brilliant plot fell kinda flat here. I wonder how Harry got Flash, May, and Mary Jane kidnapped without attracting so much attention, whether as himself or the Goblin. After all, Flash was wondering where Harry was back in the hospital. This resolution felt like we'd seen it several times before. That ending with Harry outing Peter was pretty wild though; even if that's something we'd seen before too (like waaay back in issue #12, on the cover no less!), it was pretty well executed here, too. Very chilling.

And what @Kez said, that couldn't have been a real nuclear device. Probably an explosive but non-radioactive prototype that would've triggered Spidey's spider-sense accordingly (put your own definition to that) had it been more lethal. Harry's not that big a science freak, apparently.

3 stars. Still a good story, but very disappointing considering what it should've been. But Harry's character remains very interesting going forward.

  That at least sounded more like Harry gone crazy, especially in the second half of the group.
