Wells and Chris Bachalo published Amazing Spider-Man#555 in 2008. Rabin used his supernatural and scientific knowledge to unleash a group of undead Mayan warriors under the command of Wayep, the god of mischief. Although Rabin was unable to take down Spider-Man, his return to the comic has seen him mark Peter and Mary Jane as sacrifices. However, flashbacks are all that have been shown.

Although the consequences of Rabin’s recent actions are still being investigated, it is evident that they are closely linked to Peter and MJ’s decades-long relationship. This has been a constant theme in Amazing Spider-Mansince since the first issue. These events not only destroyed Peter’s relationship with MJ but also alienated him from his family and friends. Editor Nick Lowe pointed out that the current story arc will end with May’s Amazing Spider-Man#26. This will reveal all that has happened before it ends. Lowe warned that readers may also be in tears. Zeb guided me through the story and I am sure I was.
