Hey hey hey, Crawl Spacers. It’s Friday again, and that means it’s time for another Spidey Friday Night Fight. Now that we’re through the madness of Maximum Carnage we can settle back and enjoy yet another Hall of Fame fight, and to do that we’re going all the way back to November, 1966 and Amazing Spider-Man Annual #3 entitled “… To Become An Avenger!” by Stan Lee and ‘Jazzy’ Johnny Romita!
So what makes this one a Hall of Fame fight? It’s Spidey at the height of his ‘young turk’ days back when the slightest things could set him off. He eventually grew out of that and became a more tempered, seasoned pro but when he first started out in the superhero biz he was all fists, webs and attitude. The Avengers *and* the Hulk found that out in this particular annual.
What’s this, you say? Berryman, this time you’ve lost your mind! Spidey tackling both the Avengers *and* the Hulk – and winning?
Sure, you’ve seen Spidey kick the X-Men’s butts before (or as Spidey calls it, ‘Tuesday’) and you’ve seen him take out Firelord, the former Herald of Galactus imbued with the Power Cosmic.
You’ve seen him go toe to toe with the Fantastic Four , Juggernaut and any number of tough opponents. But Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the Strongest One There Is?
As Lili von Shtupp would say, “It’s twue, it’s twue!” So let’s jump in with both feet.
