Ok, let's start with brief recap. Silk stops the robbery at fashion store and gets a coat as a gift. We see Cindy in her apartment with her brother who's at 2nd semester in FIT (they both moved from their parents house). Then, she starts her first day at TNM and meets her new colleague, Derick. They go investigate a gang murder scene in Queens. Something's off. They find some fur there. Later, Cindy writes an articule about it which gets JJJ into trouble as two guys threatens to hurt him. Silk saves him and Jonah (after insisting) conviences her to be his bodyguard. Back at home, Moon examines the comm of one of the crooks that attacked Jameson and, after some digging, she finds out that it was from Fujinet, founded by Matsuko Ishii and ran by her daughter, Saya. The latter meets with some cat demon at the end, planning something evil.
I loved it. It has everything you could expect from a Silk comic with addition of a detective story. It's short but nice. My only issue is that she mentioned her bunker a bit too often but it doesn't take away any joy from reading this.

About 5-6 years ago I was first introduced to Silk. But she didn't appear in any cartoons and I didn't have her comics. So, how did I know about her? It's simple. Video games.
And if you're looking for games she appeared in, I've got you covered.
Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Cindy_Moon_(Earth-13122)
Marvel Avengers Alliance https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Cindy_Moon_(Earth-12131)
Marvel Avengers Academy https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Cindy_Moon_(Earth-TRN562)
Marvel Future Fight (the best Marvel mobile game I've ever played) https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Cindy_Moon_(Earth-TRN012)
Last but not least, Spider-Man Unlimited. That was the game that told me who Silk was first. https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Cindy_Moon_(Earth-TRN461)
And that's all? Maybe but I don't think so. There are speculations she will appear in Marvel's Spider-Man PS4 sequel. I think she might be added to Marvel Strikeforce, Marvel Puzzle Quest or Marvel Battle Lines. I hope other games will feature her as well.
Which of these game appearences is your favourite? What would you change there? Which future or current games she should appear in?
A lot of sellers on eBay state a character's first appearance, which is great.
But which is the first appearance that matters?
I never really thought of this until recently when on eBay I noticed two separate listing for Silk's first appearance. One being Spiderman Vol 3 #1 and the other Spiderman Vol 3 #4.
Both are technically right.
In #1 She is just Cindy Moon In #4 she is Silk.
I like to buy first appearances to eventually slab if they're worth it.
But which would you think would be best?
