What You Need to Know:

The Venom virus is on the verge of consuming Gwen Stacey and she knows it. But all the roads Gwen has taken since putting on the mask have led to Matt Murdock. He knows it, and she knows it too. But first, Gwen has gone to Ben Parker, Peter Parker’s Uncle, to reveal the truth about what has been going on.

In This Issue:

Even though the Mary-Jane’s show was canceled, the Parker family and Gwen are still inside. Gwen reveals that not only is she Spider-Woman, but why she has kept it secret from the ones she loves. But those not the only confessions; to do what needs to be done, she can’t be afraid anymore.

During her confession, Matt Murdock is giving a confession of his own, namely his backstory. He talks about how his mother was the one who had the chemicals spilled on her and in her last moments of wanting to see her son, she wipes his eyes with the chemicals, causing his blindness. The usual Murdock backstory ensues with his boxer dad blowing a fight and getting killed for it. Murdock is then taken in by Stick who trains him, but when they get into a fight, Kirigi interfere in a bust that kills his Master. Murock takes things into his own hands. He is taken in by the The Hand and becomes their greatest weapon. Realizing he was too much, they let him go and that’s when Matt became a lawyer that defended the original Kingpin before killing him. But it wasn’t enough for him, even at his highest he felt at his lowest. Until he saw her: Spider-Woman.

Meanwhile, Gwen is caught between her friends trying to convince her that she doesn’t have to do this and Ben telling her she does. The choice must be made and only Gwen can make it. But she has to decide quick cause she just got a phone call from Frank Castle, who has infiltrated Murdock’s office. He’s waiting for her to join him to finally go to war with Murdock for good.

Summary
OK, we all know The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen’s back story. To see it twisted so well while keeping to the original is delightful. Now there is much more dialogue then I’m going to let on in the review so as not to spoil everything. And that is delightful too. There is so much more to Matt Murdock then what we have seen in the previous issues. It’s refreshing and the writing is so well done as to be expected. This is a Matt Murdock based issued but the small clips of Gwen struggling between her friends, the Parkers and herself is more than enough.
