The cover's pretty much the best thing about this one: blame Kevin Smith for Spider-Man and the Black Cat: the Evil that Men Do #5, "Trickle Down." Art by Terry and Rachel Dodson.


Spider-Man and Daredevil need some background on a teleporter, so they call in Nightcrawler to drop a ton of exposition about how this might be a mutant but probably isn't. He also lectures them about not knowing their mutant history and acts put out when they tell him they aren't mutants. Which is stupid, since even if that is something he'd say, I'm pretty sure Kurt would've known that, if for no other reason than Spidey and DD would've shown up on Cerebro all the time...

Worse, Spidey and DD take off at the end to deal with the creepy non-mutant teleporter/mind-controller/drug-pusher/rape-victim the Black Cat is dealing with; and Nightcrawler doesn't get to come help out! Yeah, I suppose Spidey and DD wouldn't want another guy coming with them on that one...

Goo, you dirty dog! You've left things very open-ended here. Mayhaps there be a 3-way later perhaps.

Like they say on SNL, "It's not gay if it's a three-way."
