Spectacular Spider-Man #157
Issue(s): Spectacular Spider-Man #157
It's also a little bit of a twisty plot. Electro has a contact with a security company that keeps giving him blueprints of banks, but Electro keeps arriving at the banks to find them suffering from localized earthquakes with the vaults already empty.
The inclusion of Shocker in the book is kept a secret until he shows up while Electro is confronting the guy that was selling him the blueprints.
Spider-Man also shows up and knocks out Electro, but Shocker gets away without Spidey having seen him.
There's a lot more going on in the issue besides that. J. Jonah Jameson calls in the inner core of the Daily Bugle (including *cough* Ben Urich. Never ignore a cough in a comic book.)...
...and tells them that Thomas Fireheart (aka Puma) has bought the company.
And Joe Robertson stands up to Tombstone on the Amish farm that they're recovering at...
...and stabs him with a pitchfork.
We later find out that it was Hammerhead and Chameleon that helped with his jailbreak.
Fun stuff. Nice development of subplots.
Quality Rating: B-
Chronological Placement Considerations: JJ says that the Bugle sale just finished 15 minutes ago, but that's after Peter was 15 minutes late to showing up at the meeting because of his first run-in with Electro, so i'm assuming this doesn't take place directly after Puma's meeting with JJ last issue.
Continuity Insert? N

A supervillain fight can be fun. you have to feel sorry for electro. he won the fight but was the one who got caught.
