This second entry in the "Sinister Six" trilogy was outstanding. Great action sequences, wonderful characterization, an amazing story...it was all incredible. It was even low on offensive content; a smattering of profanities and one or two suggestive remarks were about as objectionable as it got. I do have one question: Why couldn't the "MJ" portrayed by Kirsten Dunst in the "Spider-Man" movies be like the feisty redhead in this novel? Maybe the wall-crawler's next movie will feature Mary Jane as more than just a damsel in distress; one can only hope.
