Comics Corner: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Title: The Amazing Spider-Man
Issue Number: 2
Release Date: May 1963

  • First appearance of Vulture
  • Peter Parker sells his first photographs to J. Jonah Jameson at Now Magazine
  • Spider-Man makes adjustments to his belt and web launchers to hold more web fluid
  • First appearance of Tinkerer
  • Panel highlighting how Spider-Man's web shooters work
Low Points
  • Spider-Man only goes after Vulture to get more photographs to sell, not because he necessarily wants to stop him from committing a crime
  • Tinkerer is an alien from another planet, working with others in his species from a radio shop
  • Vulture tells the police his plan before executing it
  • When behind bars in prison, Vulture is still in his full costumed garb, instead of a prison uniform
  • There's no point to the Tinkerer's story because we never learn what the alien's plan was to begin with
  • Tinkerer and his species give up, leaving Earth and destroying all of their monitoring devices immediately after Spider-Man thwarts them
Rating (based on a 1 through 5 Stans grading system)
