    @Andrew C If Stan *had* to do this story, maybe he should have had Peter's parents be average people (i.e. not spies) suddenly thrust into an incredible situation (like Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much) who were thought to betray their country. A lot of the people accused of being communists during the McCarthy hearings weren't spies or involved in espionage - they were just regular people who got caught up in something bigger than themselves because of who they knew, or they were in the wrong place at the right time. I think that sort of thing would have worked better for Peter's parents instead of making them spies.

    A lot of people don't like this annual because they think making Pete's parents spies was the first thing that removed him from being just the kid next door in Queens. Or they don't like it because he basically wasted The Finisher. Personally, I love it though. I love the backstory with Pete's parents, the involvement of the Red Skull, the personal angle, the exotic locale, and it really has a lot of tension and suspense built in to it. (Although whenever I think of Pete's parents I'm always reminded of that terrible robot parents storyline.... shudder...)
