Book Summary: TYPHOID MARY has returned to Hell’s Kitchen and taken over the neighborhood’s psychiatric hospital, overwhelming Manhattan’s most dangerous neighborhood with her unique telekinetic abilities. When mutants and humans alike get caught in the crossfire, the X-Men have no choice but to intervene… only to square off against THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN?!
Book Review: Okay maybe I should have taken note that there is actually a part one of this series in the form of Spider-Man and set to continue in Iron Fist. Unfortunately I didn't and ended up a bit confused exactly how Typhoid Mary has came into the scene.

Meet Typhoid Mary. You might be familiar with her if you read Daredevil. Here she has escaped a hospital and has begun her assault on the people of New York. Led by Jean Grey, the X-Men appear with the hopes of bringing Typhoid Mary to heel but she isn't going to make it easy. Mary's ability to create false memories ignites the team causing them to turn against each other.

Overall this series did not entertain as I had hoped. Maybe it might be that I may have missed something from the first half but either way I was not impressed. Normally the X-Men's presence is felt in the comic books but this one made them fall a bit flat.

I don't see myself picking up the two issues to this series so I may never know exactly what may happen to Mary Walker but perhaps I never really cared for the character.

If you like Typhoid Mary character, then this series may just be for you.
