Amazing Spider-Man #7
Issue(s): Amazing Spider-Man #7
Review/plot: The Vulture has been behaving himself in prison so that they would let him work in the machine shop, where he's been building a rudimentary flight harness. He uses it to escape, and then goes and builds a new harness that won't be affected by Spidey's anti-magnetic gadget.
Peter Parker hears that the Vulture has escaped and fakes being sick so he can go home from school. Then he heads out with his camera and his device, thinking it'll be another easy win. They meet up and fight, but the device doesn't work and the Vulture drops Spidey, injuring his arm.
Peter seems just barely able to contain his anger at the harassment he gets from the kids at school.
After school, Parker goes the the Bugle to sells his picture of the Vulture, but the Vulture shows up at the Bugle with the intention of robbing the payroll. Peter slips off and becomes Spider-Man, creating a splint for his arm out of webbing. Despite JJ's protests, Spidey attacks the Vulture in the Bugle and they make a real mess of things. Spidey eventually wins by letting the Vulture fly him way up high in the sky, and then webbing his wings together.
Then Spidey goes back and webs JJ's mouth shut to stop him from yelling at him. Then he changes back to Peter and starts making time with Betty Brant.
Spidey's banter with the Vulture is kind of funny, and it's really nice to see Peter actually going somewhere with Betty. This is actually pretty good.
The Vulture looks kind of goofy sometimes, though.
