Writer: Jason Latour

Artist: Robbi Rodriguez

Cover Art: Robbi Rodriguez

What You Need to Know: Gwen has hit her limit. She knows what she has to do to take down Matt Murdock and get revenge for her father. That is to let the Symbiot take over completely. In a last hope decision, she confronts her friends and Ben and May Parker to let them know what she must do. But before they can stop her, Frank Castle contacts her to let her know, the time has come to take out Murdock. Once and for all.

 

In This Issue: The Watcher of Earth-65 is peacefully sleeping away when he is awoken by The Watcher of Earth-8 who is not happy with his “friends” recent disinterest in what he should be watching. When he realizes what has been happening himself, the two debates on what they should do. They are “WATCHERS” after all. . .

Meanwhile, Frank Castle has basically taken out the whole building and every ninja guarding Matt Murdock who is patiently waiting for him in his own office. Before Frank can take the final shot, Gwen saves Murdock letting both men know that his punishment is in her hands. Frank and Gwen square off themselves before Captain America charges in herself!

After taking out Frank Castle, Captain turns her attention to Gwen. She tries to reason and just as she thinks she is getting through, Gwen goes full Gwenom mode on Cap. The two are forced to battle it out and the Symbiot takes over physically leaving Cap the looser,

With nothing left to stop her, Gwen finally has Matt in her grasp. Literally, holding him over the edge of the window to the city below by the throat. At the last second, Gwen is able to take control of herself, not wanting to be anything like Murdock believes she is. Unsatisfied, Murdock pulls out a device the Watcher’s recognize as a Watch, a Space Time Gate and uses it on Gwen. The Watcher’s realize that she is off the Continuum and can’t find her!

Gwen however opens her eyes to an unexpected site; herself. But as the Gwen we know and love who died!!

Summary
AH!! I have been waiting for Cap to show up and finally face Gwen! With so much negative influence on Gwen and her battle with herself about what she must do, Captain America will surely be the thing that gets Gwen back to herself. The dialogue between the two is good but I was a little disappointed that the fights wasn't just a smidge longer. Not too much, just like one more page of punches would have been enough. The issue is so battle heavy it would have made sense. But as usual the dialogue is placed so effortlessly in the right places and the comedy included with the Watchers is enough that I can get over less Captain and Gwen fight. Plus, to see Gwen let out full "Venom" Mode was a little scary. The ending is enough to make you want to pick up the next issue!
