Thanks...that's the thing of it, see...Peter Parker is a Smart Guy. There's no
way he could look at this possibility and not ask that crucial question...so
crucial, in fact, that as you note, it's literally the very first thing we see
him thinking on the first page following getting the second part of the letter.
That's also part of what writing is...simply asking the next logical question.
If I wrote him otherwise, he wouldn't be Peter, A Smart Guy.
