A+?? Really?!

My favorite part was when, years later, they actually have him realize just how stupid his name is, and he tries to change his name to "THE TRAPSTER", and half the people he meets just call him Pete anyway, pissing him off.

Though I'm starting to notice a disturbing trend. Johnny is apparently already directly responsible for pissing off half of the eventual Frightful Four. Adding in his encounter with Sandman about 11 issues from now, and Medusa's about the only one who wasn't pissed at HIM rather than the FF as a whole when they decided to team up against them.

Add that to Namor, and... man, Johnny's more trouble than he's worth, isn't he?
