Issue(s): Web of Spider-Man #102
So here we go. Mary Jane has gone to a club to dance her miseries away, but Carnage and his gang choose to attack there.
Morbius has been recruited into Venom's OK With Killing heroes, and they show up to fight the villains at the club.
Spider-Man shows up as well, and despite his seeming change in attitude at the end of the last chapter, he's able to convince the heroes, including Venom that it's better to save the bystanders than chase the villains.
Still, he signs up with Venom's squad.
Note the exchange between Morbius and Spider-Man. The last time they met, Morbius hypnotized Spider-Man into forgetting him. It's nice to see that acknowledged, i guess, even if it's just to handwave it away. I also think it's funny that Morbius is going around calling people "mortal". He only found out he was immortal two publication months ago, in Morbius #9.

Yeah I think it was around here too I stopped having mindless fun and started to get tired of this.

I dunno, if I found out I was immortal I'd probably immediately start referring to random passerby and checkout clerks as "mortal" like a Stan Lee character. Definitely one of the perks of immortality.

Interestingly, I remember that I got tired of the whole crossover around this issue, too...

When Spider-Man later encounters Simon Stroud in Morbius, he doesn't remember the events of their previous encounter because of Morbius's hypnosis. But he remembers Morbius hypnotizing him in this story. I guess he remembers Morbius erasing his memory via hypnosis but doesn't remember what memories were erased?
