Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #42
Issue(s): Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #42
Spider-Man finds Electro in a fake Human Torch costume, and he quickly finds out that Electro is working with the Frightful Four, who proceed to trounce Spidey pretty badly.
Spidey's one consolation is that the villains aren't able to remove Spidey's mask due to Paste Pot Pete's glue.
There's obviously something wrong with me, because i always love it when the villains actually manage to beat the hero. I know this is continued in Fantastic Four #218, but for one brief moment, the Frightful Four actually managed to accomplish something.
Decent art by Mike Zeck and, the lovelorn Debra Whitman aside, a nice all-fight issue by Mantlo.
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: Continues directly in Fantastic Four #218.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Inbound References (2): showDebra Whitman, Electro, Lizard, Marcy Kane, Morris Sloan, Paste Pot Pete, Phillip Chang, Sandman, Spider-Man, Steve Hopkins, Wizard
Jim Mooney's distinctive inking style makes Peter and Debra look like they just walked out of one of the Supergirl backup stories that used to appear in Action Comics. It's especially noticeable in the faces.
