Comments: Miles and Gwen are both studying for a hard test. Miles seems to be taking it more seriously. They are after all students still.
The Spider Gang gets a call from Tony Stark to investigate a theft. At the site, they find the Shocker. He is impressive looking. The Spider Gang and Shocker do mix it up with excitement ensuing. The Shocker is a bigger threat then you might imagine. With Spider-Man and Miles plus Gwen being fairly new still to the super-hero game they are still all learning.
The camaraderie the Spider Gang share is beautiful to see. They do work well together each is a little different yet those differences make them stronger as a whole.
The battle does get intense as the Shocker shocks them with his ruthlessness. During the fight, Gwen and Miles still manage to make time to talk about their private non-super-hero lives. You get to learn more about them so you care more about them.
Spider-Man does not act like the main star of the comic and he is not featured as such yet he still does come across as if he were.
