    Training is almost over for our cadets. Some will graduate. Some will washout. And, yes, some WILL die! It all starts here, in the Initiative's biggest story to date! And with the clock ticking on the first class of recruits, get ready to meet the next batch! Including new Marvels, old Marvels, at least one SKRULL, and...THE IRREDEEMABLE GIANT-MAN? Also, with the Gauntlet out of commission, just wait until you meet Camp Hammond's new Drill Instructor... he's a real Taskmaster!

    Taskmaster did train U.S. Agent, so he's got experience training heroes at least. And he's not really an evil guy, he's just very morally flexible when money's getting waved around. And I bet the Skrull hero's going to be the new Crusader from Marvel Team-Up. Just a feeling.

    I was thinking somethign happened in Runaways and we get their resident Skrull on the team.

    Tasky also trained Agent X or whatever you call him.

    edit: Just checked out the solicits. Apparently Swingshift, the FCBD Spidey issue by Slott is getting rereleased and embraced as canon. Also, the sign on the JJJ board of one of McNiven's covers says "Masked Meance" and another says Spiderman Returns. Wonder what prompts the return sign? And the JJ sign just screams Mini-Marvels "His mask is back on, we dont know who he is again!".

    Id guess the Hitch cover isnt finished with colouring. Probably just a prelim flats type preview like that Green Lantern Cyborg Superman cover released months ago. It was similar to that one and then a couple weeks back the official one came out and it was all digial colouring and purty like.

    The whole reason he put it back on again was as an intimidation tool to send a message to Kingpin and his cronies.

    He's done with the Kingpin now so he's done with the suit.

    But no he's not happy again, since One More Day is about his increasingly vain efforts to save Aunt May's life.

    I'm not saying it wasn't a movie tie-in, cause it was. I'm sure Marvel said to JMS "hey can you use the black suit in an upcoming storyline?"

    And he was all "yeah I can fit that in"

    But JMS at least made an attempt to incorporate it into the story and explain it.

    It wasn't a great arc but the black suit stuff wasn't what I had a problem with.

    I didnt mean to insult you if you took offense. It was more a changing your answer to reply to the other guys question. I read Back in Black. It was enjoyable and had some decnet moments but could have been done in 1 or 2 issues tops and had been done many times before in previous Spider-man stories.

    The only reason I can think of the black costume being used despite MJ hating it and forbidding him from using it because it made her scared of her own husband was that they watned it for the movie tie-in. Having Peter switch back to the red and blues for no reason for OMD confirmed this. He is falling further and further and is going lower than he was in the entire BiB as he is lashing out at friends and family now. If he supposedly only switched to black and white for the emotional aspect, I cant see any reason for him to switch back to red and blue.

    Sorry you took my joking comment as a personal insult.

    Actually that was my mistake, for some reason I thought you were the same dude who asked the original question.

    Although I still disagree that he changed back to the red and blue for "no reason"
