Back In Black

At the close of the Civil War, a stray bullet hit Peter's Aunt May... a bullet meant for him. Now Peter Parker, Spider-Man is tearing New York apart to find out who fired the shot that may well kill her. And in order to show his enemies that he means business, he's donned his black costume. Peter Parker is killing mad... and the Kingpin who ordered the hit should be very scared.
