Characters Appearing: Spider-Man
Marvel Team-Up #45
Issue(s): Marvel Team-Up #45
Mark Gruenwald writes in to issue #49 with the following:
I feel compelled to try to clarify a possible misconception one might get from reading #45's "Future Shock". Namely: Spider-Man's concern that "Nothing we do matters because in thirty years time the Martians are gonna grind it all into paste."
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Spider-Man is still time traveling. No Spidey appearances should take place between Marvel Team-Up #44 and this issue. This issue has been moved back in time significantly from its publishing date in order to accommodate all the dependencies.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A

Newt Gingrich is also a Toffler acolyte, despite the fact that they have pretty disparate political views:
