Quote:Spidey #1: Is this issue why this thread is by far the most active one in the Marathon thus far? It's indeed wonderful how many of the archetypes of the character show up so quickly: agonizing about Aunt May's money troubles, Peter being dismissed by the kids (seen to some extent already in AF15), hated by JJJ, and Spidey being feared by Aunt May herself.

At last. This feels like a second phase of SA Marvel now. The only book that was floating my boat so far was FF. Now there's finally someone other than
Kirby, and we also get the first issue of ASM. I really enjoy reading the Marvel SA in publication order like this, it's a lot of fun.
In addition to Spider-Man, we get Iron Man, and we get crossovers. This was a big day in the second week of December 1962, all three historic issues came out
on the same day. In time for Christmas, you got two new regularly-featured superheroes, one of which is THE Marvel superhero, and you get two crossovers. Wow.
This thread will be a lot of fun to read and contribute to.
Something interesting - Iron Man enters the fold now and Dr. Strange doesn't appear until Spring or Summer of '63. But Strange is in Origins of Marvel
Comics and Iron Man had to wait until Son of Origins? This would be a head-scratcher until you remember the cover of Son of Origins. They needed to hold over
Iron Man for the sequel in order to have any semblance of a headliner in that one. SA X-Men didn't feature a single hero of such pizzazz as Iron Man.
It was really nice to see Don Heck art for the first time in the Marathon. I liked the look of his layouts and faces.

I don't know if any Golden Age or Silver Age superheroes were seen as villians by the public and the police in the stories

Yes, the Essentials are great for what they are, but, man, they leave me uninspired
Ammo hafta revisit these once the SC emm-dubbyas catch up (yes, I really talk like this)
CV: something about this cover bugs me (hmmm, mebbe I shoonta did a review on the same day I pooped my pants!)
1: “Prisoner of the Slave World!” Is being a prisoner worse than being just a resident? Either way, it’s still a SLAVE world!!
I’ve got a gripe, somehow, about how Pym’s street clothes grow and shrink as needed, but that he carries around a miniscule Ant-Man suit, in a tiny tiny bag!
2: ooo, a locked room mystery!
Pym uses the word “inasmuch” and references the he is a scientist, so we don’t forget how smart he is, and how prepared he’s gonna be lest someone attempts to target him next… until the very next page that is, when he allows a guy with a shady window washing story have full access, despite that the guy has a mug hat, mug eyebrows, mug toothpick, and mug mug!!
4: After the “washer” transports Pym:::: And, an infinity later… :::
I don’t think that word means what you think it means…
5: AHA! That’s why it’s a slave world – Pym enslaves any random insect he feels like!
6: ::: Having mastered the insects… :::

CV: Spidey: “The Fantastic Four think I’m trapped! But they don’t suspect my real power!”
You have webs on your costume, and a spider on your chest… they might suspect A LITTLE BIT, science-whiz!!
2. Ouch! According to the retelling, Aunt May witnessed the shooting! That’s rough
4. in order to watch the performance, you need to jam your head on top of a bunch of other people – this explains why it was only a buck!
Spider-Man vs. The Chameleon
2. I forgive their calling him “Peter Palmer”, since they remembered the ‘-‘ in Spider-Man in the same narration!’
3. I wonder how The Thing knows Spidey is a teenager…
A Personal Message From Spider-Man
You know it’s a simpler time when there’s a house ad advising kids to talk to their dealer!

CV: A three-toed, four-fingered Hulk – gamma radiation is weird!
4. after a brief skirmish with a company of infantrymen searching for the Hulk, Thing realizes that he’s lost his “electronic thingamajig” to open the special elevator
Clearly, a security breach if this magnitude will be met with the appropriate concern, and immediate response, no?
Thing: “Well, I aint in the mood to go back and look for it”
5. Did Ross hafta ride 35 floors up the elevator with no door?
9. Boy, between Johnny’s rebuke of Ross’ question with, “top speed’s a secret”, and Reed’s influencing of the narrator: “Exact flying time withheld”, somebody really doesn’t want us to know the new Fantasticar’s max velocity!
Ooo, a surprise visit from Clark Kent! Oh, it's' just Banner with blue-black hair...
Karl Kort is bald and short!
And has a vaguely foreign name
10. A flaming lasso that can retrieve a wallet… Earth 616: where laws of physics are for cryingBabyBitches
12. A bound set… OF TELEPHONE BOOKS!?!?! WHO THE BALLS WOULD BIND PHONE BOOKS!?!?!? WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SOMEBODY MOVES AWAY???
Banner’s hair is no longer blue-black – Lois Lane is oddly perturbed by this
13. So Kort is deep undercover but is carrying a spy card?
Suddenly binding a phone book is not so far-fetched!
