Review
Articles: Armada, Ben Reilly, Mysterio I (Beck)

This issue, Spidey goes against the mind of Mysterio, as ol' Benny perceives ordinary people to be crazed monsters thanks to special transparent film-like coverings placed on his eyes in Sensational #1. Also, Armada escapes from incarceration, but is quickly defeated again by a worn-out Spidey, who rips apart Armada's costume (which is too bad, 'cause I kinda liked Armada's armor). Spidey prepares himself for the fight of his life in a final showdown against Mysterio.

In General...

Classic Spidey action.
