Spider-Man #5

Spider-Man, Issue #5 starts off with Miles Morales as Spider-Man being held captive by Hammerhead, who was hired to capture the new Spider-Man by the Black Cat.  Issue #5 opens with Fabio, the X-Men member known as Goldballs, becoming roommates with Ganke and the absent Miles.  In Issue #4, Ganke told Fabio that Miles is Spider-Man.  Meanwhile, Miles's mother and grandmother want to know what Miles is up to, so they hire a private investigator, Jessica Jones.  And don't forget, he has to escape from the clutches of the Black Cat.

There's quite a bit going on in this episode.  It involves a criminal organization which isn't named, S.H.I.E.L.D., the Avengers, and a few others that are hard to keep track of.  One aspect of this comic which has always eluded me is Miles Morales's origin story.  Is he the Miles Morales from the Ultimate Spider-Man universe or simply another Miles Morales in another universe?  The Amazing Spider-Man universe's Peter Parker does talk about looking up Miles Morales after transporting to the Ultimate Spider-Man universe in Spider-Men.  The opening material suggests that the radioactive spider that bit Miles was stolen, perhaps by Miles's father.  Anyway, this story is heating up.  Keep reading to find out more.
