PAGE ONE (seven panels)
PANEL 1. Ben Reilly, wearing the standard Spider-Man costume, is perched atop a building, looking down at the street below.
Before you judge me for what I'm about to do, let me ask you a question...
PANEL 2. From down at street-level, Peter Parker and Mary Jane are walking happily along, arms wrapped around each other. In the background, we can see Ben atop the building.
PANEL 3. Close-up of Peter and MJ. Peter's spider-sense is flaring, to which he looks rather inconvenienced. MJ is rolling her eyes.
Let me guess...
PANEL 4. Peter is running into an adjacent alleyway, pulling his shirt open. MJ is just standing where she was.
PANEL 5. Spider-Man has lowered himself, upside-down, next to MJ. She is smiling.
One for the road?
PANEL 6. Close up of Spider-Man and MJ kissing.
PANEL 7. Same view as the previous panel, except the two have pulled apart. Between them, in the background, down the end of the alley, we see the real Spider-Man swinging up off the ground.
Could you ever just walk away from the one you love?
