Amazing Spider-Man #659

Spidey and the Fantastic Four, sorry, I mean the Future Foundation, take on zombie pirates. Jenkies! And The Thing even gets into character by reprising his role as Blackbeard the Pirate.

The team returns to the site of their first ever battle with Doctor Doom, 300 years later, to discover the natives remember then well. Lots of fun here including Spider-Man saying booty at every opportunity (much to the chagrin of the Invisible Woman) and a nice twist as the real villains are finally revealed.

Meanwhile, back in New York, Carlie makes a decision that just might earn her the title of worst girlfriend ever by getting a tattoo of the Green Goblin to spite Peter for lying to her about his plans. So to teach him a lesson she permanently marks herself with the image of the man responsible for killing Peter Parker's first love. Yeah, that should go over real well. I think it's time to dump this chick Spidey and spend some more time with Ms. Marvel. Worth a look.
