So the Blob is Liz Allen’s dad. There, I spoiled it for you. Now you won’t have Bendis’s sensational tacked on last page about it. Just a terrible, terrible page.
But the rest of the comic is all right. He has a couple false endings, which are definitely annoying, but the whole “mutant hater” Liz turning out to be mutant story does work pretty well.
Not sure why Bendis couldn’t have given Kenny and Kitty a page or two though.
And there’s also the whole bit with Peter and Liz talking about how they’ve known each other forever. Bendis uses that one a lot–he used it last issue with Kenny–but he ever bothers having anyone acknowledge they used to bully Peter mercilessly or stood by while someone did.
It’s a big disconnect.
The X-Men get too much play, but otherwise it’s a fine issue. Problematic but fine.
