Issue Number: 9
Release Date: February 1964

  • First appearance of Electro
  • Origin of Electro
  • We learn more about Betty Brant, most importantly that she dropped out of high school and is actually a teenager (see prior Reading Spider-Man posts for my problem with that missing bit of information from past issues featuring her)
  • Betty Brant has a mysterious secret, and it makes her intriguing as a character
Low Points
  • Overall,  not a very strong story
  • Electro is just another villain who wants to use his powers to rob people
