Web of Spider-Man #104-106 (Nightwatch)
Issue(s): Web of Spider-Man #104, Web of Spider-Man #105, Web of Spider-Man #106 (Nightwatch story only)
...but their leader has already acquired an ancient mask.
When Nightwatch catches up with him, he uses the mask to protect his face while jumping out a window...
..and becomes Deathgrin.
I see you flipping back to the cover. No, you didn't accidentally pick up a Speedball comic. (Ok, this is still a Nightwatch story taking up space in a Spider-man comic, but that's not what i meant.)
Deathgrin has all sorts of powers. Petrified skin, acid blood, the inability for me to take him seriously.
Nightwatch chases him around town for a while and eventually punches him in the face.
The end? Not hardly!
Well, it's the end of Deathgrin, anyway. How does the eventual retcon about Nightwatch work? Do i get back the time i spent reading and reviewing this story? Where do i apply for that?
Quality Rating: D
Chronological Placement Considerations: The main story in issue #106 takes place separately from the one in #104-105, while these back-ups all are one story. So i've placed this in a separate entry. Also, a footnote confirms that it takes place before Infinity Crusade, and it seems to take place directly after Maximum Carnage.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Given Nightwatch's Spawn-like qualities, Deathgrin seems like a counterpart of Spawn's enemy the Violator, a demon who masdquerades as a homicidal clown.

This is supposed to be funny, right? Anyway, I now know that the best way to deal with a ruptured gas main is with guns. I also have learnt that the ancient Macedonians were buried in novelty hockey masks which only didn't turn their corpses into super powered zombies because they had a different diet in those days. This is the most educational thing I've read in ages!
