Characters Appearing: Beetle, J. Jonah Jameson, Joe 'Robbie' Robertson, Spider-Man
Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #16
Issue(s): Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #16
The Beetle has his vast criminal network (!) go on a massive crime spree...
...the purpose of which is to keep all the police out of the station so that the Beetle can raid the evidence room. Only Macone is left at the station when the Beetle, arrives, pursued by Spider-Man.
When Spidey gets into trouble, Macone grabs some heroin from the evidence room...
It doesn't quite work but it gives Spider-Man the idea to do the same thing with his web fluid.
The story ends with Macone being lauded as a hero, and Peter opting to not take a photo of Macone's wife walking away.
A response in the lettercol for this issue apologizes for the lack of continuity between Spider titles, blaming the fact that both books are in transitional periods due to creative team switches. It's actually in response to a letter praising Bill Mantlo's scripts that have been careful to mention events in Amazing so that there was at least one-way continuity.
