Amazing Spider-Man #686

Alright, we're back to Marvel tonight with the penultimate part of the Ends of the Earth storyline. What more need I say?

Amazing Spider-Man #686:

Story Points:
-Spidey and Black Widow are running around Symkaria trying to find survivors, while Silver Sable mourns her people.
-Widow eventually tells Spidey it made no sense to help the people in Symkaria since Doc Ock's ray would do the same to the rest of the Earth in time...
-But wait! It turns out the whole burning of Symkaria was an illusion put together by Mysterio to keep Spidey and his allies occupied.
-With Widow about to leave, Chameleon changes into his Doc Ock armor and attacks the heroes.
-Silver Sable spots “Ock” and attacks with murderous intent, causing Chameleon to break character.
-It's at that point Spidey realizes that the entire set-up was wrong scientifically and that Mysterio was probably behind it. Spidey manages to turn Mysterio to his side since if Spidey was right and Ock DOES try to destroy the world, Mysterio's money would be meaningless.
-Mysterio leads Spidey and the women to Ock's secret base(a Mayan pyramid), and Ock responds by sending his newest Secret Six members after Spidey's quartet... The brainwashed Avengers!

Thoughts: What can I really say here? As usual, this issue was really good. This storyline is really good. I can't wait to see how it ends, and the fallout from it going forward.

Score: 8 1/2 out of 10.
