About this title


As the amazing Spider-Man, Peter Parker has had to endure many shocks in his life: The death of his uncle Ben?shot by a burglar years ago, when Peter might have been able to stop the killing. The loss of his girlfriend, Gwen Stacy, who perished at the hands of his deadliest enemy, the Green Goblin. The realization that his wife,Mary Jane Watson, knew his secret identity years before he finally revealed it to her.But nothing could have ever prepared him for the latest unexpected turn in his life:the possibility that he has a long-lost sister! The revelation of a sibling he didnšt even know existed is far from the only complication to the matter. For not only is his sister a deadly super-villainess known as Pity, but shešs working alongside the manipulative Gentleman?a man who masterminded the deaths of Peteršs parents! Together with Doctor Octopus, Electro, the Vulture, and Mysterio, the Gentleman and Pity have formed the newest incarnation of The Sinister Six? a group dedicated to destroying Spider-Man! Faced with the challenge of trying to save Pity from her predicament while, at the same time, stopping The Sinister Six from carrying out the Gentlemanšs world-threatening plans, Spider-Man must turn to the super-spy organization S.A.F.E. and its volatile director, Colonel Sean Morgan, for help. But even with help from his hi-tech allies, Spider-Man discovers that nothing he can do will stop the Sinister Six from achieving their goal of revenge!

From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School-Motivated by revenge and greed, the Gentleman has recruited the Sinister Six to kill Spider-Man and to execute an elaborate plan to make the billionaire even more powerful and rich. This incarnation of the Sinister Six has a new addition, a young woman named Pity, who is manipulated by the villain. The book is a whirlwind of emotions; Spider-Man is faced with the dilemma of saving Pity (whom he suspects is his sister) or stopping the Gentleman from destroying New York City and possibly the world. Although he wins the battle, the villain slips away with Pity to appear in the next adventure. Wonderful humor, popular urban culture and people, and strong action make this a great read. Teens unfamiliar with the comic-book adventures can easily follow the story; die-hard fans are likely to know that this book and its upcoming sequel are a short interlude between the regularly published comic series. Revenge of the Sinister Six is soon to be made into a movie.
