Web of Spider-Man Annual #5 (1989)

“Atlantis Attacks, Chapter Eleven: War Zone: New York”

Rating: 4/5

Writer: Gerry Conway
Artist: Javier Salteres

Atlantis finally actually invades New York. They send a giant sea beast to destroy the city and Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four (plus Ms. Marvel) have to fight it. The Fantastic Four is all defeated by the beast, and Sue (Invisible Girl) actually gets kidnapped and marked as a bride for Set. Spider-Man eventually defeats the beast. The Atlantean troops get word that there was a nuclear explosion in the Atlantic Ocean and figure their allies have betrayed them and blown up Atlantis, so they stop their attack and retreat to the ocean.

In the next story, Peter’s professor, Evan Swann, is given the uni power and turned into Captain Universe because a being called the Quantum Mechanic threatens to destroy Earth because of something he perceives to be a flaw in our reality. Swann sends him packing and the uni power leaves him.

A short story about Peter as a kid going to get Aunt May medicine and getting ice cream with Flash and Liz. Kind of plays like a Dennis the Menace comic.

A story about Silver Sable’s past and how her father trained her and such.

On an Earth in another universe, Set has gained control of the U.S. Now he plans to breach over into our world and take it over as well.
