Comics Corner: The Amazing Spider-Man Annual 4

Title: The Amazing Spider-Man
Issue Number: Annual 4
Release Date: November 1967

  • Human Torch is running amuck through the city and Spider-Man intervenes to stop him
  • Turns out Human Torch was on a film set and Spider-Man cutting in resulted in an offer for a picture deal with the two of them
  •  The movie is all a ruse to get Spider-Man and Peter Parker together and defeat them both by making them battle each other
  • The villains reveal themselves to be Mysterio and the Wizard
  • Wizard's first appearance in Spider-Man
  • After the main story, there are a few fun pages chalk full of details on Spider-Mans costume, the different webs he can shoot, his villains and his home
  • The last page announces one full year in advance that the next annual will feature Peter's parents - What a hype up
Low Points
  • Mysterio and the Wizard send a giant mechanical gorilla after our heroes
  • Overall a very odd story
Rating (based on a 1 through 5 Stans grading system)
