Peter Parker: Spider-Man Vol 2 #2 – Writer: Howard Mackie Artist: John Romita Jr. Cover artists: John Romita Jr and Dan Jurgens. “Getting caught in a battle between two god-like beings is not how I planned on spending my day, but… …I guess it never is!” — Spider-Man. Spider-Man and Thor battle Tokkots downtown while Aunt May suffers because she needs her prescription medicine. Peter’s back in action (how did that happen, you ask – well, I don’t know!), and fighting alongside the Asgardian Avenger Thor against some evil manifestation of the Dark Gods. Curious? This story is continued on from Thor (Vol. 2) #8. We pick up the tale with Aunt May worrying about her nephew Peter. A helpful policeman tries to calm her down and get her to safety as a huge battle rages on. Turn the page, and we see Spider-Man and Thor fighting two of the creatures called ‘Tokkots” from the Dark Gods. Seems these bad-boys from another dimension have stormed Asgard, imprisoned Odin, and are now committed to bring down the God of Thunder. Spidey has to help Thor control Mjolnir, his magical hammer, by securing a webline around it. Mjolnir’s been acting strange, and hasn’t really been a good hammer lately. Spidey’s able to bring it around and ensnare the monsters while Thor rescues a helicopter crippled from the battle. Spidey whips up a bed of webbing to help Goldilocks cushion the chopper. Meanwhile, Hannah Fairmont, Jake Olsen’s (Thor’s new secret ID) fiancee offers to help the suffering Aunt May. Back on the battlefield, the Tokkots twins (the creature created a duplicate of himself during the first part of this tale in Thor #8) attack again, this time trapping Hannah, Aunt May, and some policeman inside a ring of fire. Thor’s got problems, because he can’t find his hammer, and if he’s separated from it for too long he returns to his human identity. Spidey decides to go for the gusto and save the innocents, only realizing his fragile Aunt’s in trouble after leaping through the flames. Tokkots closes in on the webslinger, who’s more than up to the challenge, until a familiar crack of lightning breaks up the skirmish. Now Thor’s pissed, because he doesn’t relent on Tokkots, blasting him repeatedly. The battle seems of have taken a turn for the better, until Tokkots breaks through Spidey’s webbing and grabs Peter around his neck, preparing to choke the life out of him. Just then, Peter’s pager goes off (Jameson’s paging him to get photos of the battle), and the sound causes Tokkots to totally freak. Petey shoves the pager in Tokkot’s face, while he retreats, screeching. Distracted and disabled, Spider-Man delivers a solid left hook and prevails. Thor and Spidey meet back up, but Tokkots and his clone pop into a dimension door, disappearing. At the end of the issue, we get a cool picture of Peter Parker and Jake Olsen shaking hands.
