One of the most pivotal moments of the SPIDER-MAN "BIG TIME" era happens here. Other comics promise you their issues will "Change Everything" or that "Nothing Will Ever Be The Same." No carnival barker-like pitch this time. Just the plain, simple truth: This issue of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN will have repercussions for Peter Parker and this title's cast for years and years to come. Guest-starring THE NEW AVENGERS. Also in this issue: We finally reveal what has become of the alien symbiote. And a dramatic change to Spider-Man's powers. Do NOT miss this issue!
