Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #55
Issue(s): Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #55
On the other hand, Nitro blows up the Project scientists as soon as he's freed.
And he's not very appreciative of the efforts of Bale or his own daughter.
Spider-Man runs into Nitro at a bank where as Peter Parker he was cashing his TA check. He tricks Nitro into merging himself with nausea gas, which makes him very ill.
The latest on the Marcy head-covering gag:
Luke McDonnell's a decent artist. I wouldn't have minded if they kept him on the book either.
Quality Rating: B-
Chronological Placement Considerations: This issue takes place after Amazing Spider-Man #216, when Peter met Debbie's hometown boyfriend Biff Rifkin. But ASM #216 is part of a three issue arc, and in ASM #218 it's mentioned that Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #56 occurs during a downtime interval. So i've got Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #54-56 occurring concurrently with Amazing Spider-Man #216-218.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A

This story raises an issue I'd love to see explored more. What do you do when you have a villain who is just flat out too dangerous to give a constitutional trial to? The kind where the only way to keep him restrained is to keep him unconscious. As soon as he wakes up, BANG, he's out of there.

It's interesting to return to this story after the "Civil War" crossover, where the New Warriors battling Nitro in a populated area is a) very destructive and kills lots of people an b) treated like proof that they are unusually stupid and reckless. Here, it's just superhero business as usual, even when Spider-Man deliberately draws Nitro to a chemical warehouse in hopes of blasting him apart; I guess it shows how much superhero comics have come to rely on undermining the genre conventions for story material in the last decade or two.

Or maybe it shows just how dumb Civil War was.
