My official opinion? It was mostly filler. You can skip this one.
Like other Spider-girl books, this one features the adventures of Marvel's longest running female superhero in the MC2 universe.
The books asks many questions and even answers a few. Some of the questions this book raises include: 1) Has Normie Osborne (i.e. the third generation Green Goblin) really reformed? 2) Why is Mary Jane Parker having a series of spells? 3) Who will prevail in the battle between the forces of Wilson Fiske and a new crime lord in town? Why exactly is Issue 51 (drawn in a completely different style) in the same book as Issue 34-38? Who is the new man who has adopted the old Spider-man's identity?
As usual, the Spider-girl book includes a healthy mix of action, suspense, and drama. Most of it works okay, but I think in a couple places, Betrayed illustrates the pitfall of leaving a character in High School forever. It's worth noting that in the Amazing Spider-man, Spidey left High School in Issue 28. You do run out of typical teenage problems to portray. In this book we have May's new boots getting ruined and then we have Spider-girl worrying about why she doesn't have acclaimed adventures like the Fantastic Five. What's ironic about this is that in real life, her adventures ran for 135 issues, while FF had ten forgettable issues. However, DeFalco does come up with a good complication in May's teenage existence at the end.
