"Saturday in the Park with May" is the name of this story. Aunt May is just sitting in the park thinking about Peter. About him and MJ and how in love they are. She is glad they got back together. About how Peter is Spider-Man and she is still not comfortable with that but she understands and accepts it. She worries.

After the park she goes to a cell phone store and this guy is standing in line wining and complaining on his cell phone about how bad it works. All the people around him including children don't like it. So May bless her heart "accidentally" knocks the phone out of his hand and it breaks. He yells at her than leaves realizing he had better not hit her or everyone else in the store would be very displeased to say the least. The people applaud Aunt May after he leaves. Meanwhile on TV she can see Spider-Man battling the Shaker, a guy with a vibrating suit developed for mining. Spidey beats the guy of course, by throwing him in a pool.

Peter calls May on her new cell phone. He invites her out to dinner and a movie with him and MJ. Of course after she is done with her mysterious Saturday walk. Itís not a mystery she says she is just seeing some friends and she is; Mary, Richard and Ben.

We do get a good Spider-Man fight. But Aunt May steals this issue. Spider-Man better hope she never turns evil he wouldn't stand a chance. We all know with her loving heart and soul that could never happen though. The art is beautiful. May is still a hot babe. MJ is hot too but May is just as hot if you don't believe me just ask Peter.
