The Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 1 105The Spider Slayer!
Story by: Stan Lee

Originally published: February 1972

  • Boring B-plot about Randy and some others protesting the Bugle for their treatment of minorities and the common man. I like when the comics have a somewhat political bent, but it would also be nice if there was actually an interesting plot about it, not just a handful of boring throw-away panels.
  • Mrs. Watson moved to the coast, leaving Aunt May alone.
  • Party for Harry’s return from the hospital includes Flash Thompson, who is back for good, and a flirtatious MJ.
  • Jameson gets angry with Spider-Man, contacts Professor Smythe again, hires him and his Spider Slayer robot.
  • Smythe overrides Jameson’s controls, uses the robot to both defeat Spidey and steal some computer part (and frame Spider-Man for it). Why even involve Jameson? Why not just do that himself?
  • The computer part controls crime-prevention video cameras that have been placed around the city, which Smythe wants to use to spy on shit and cause crime. Really dumb.
  • Smythe uses them to learn Spider-Man’s identity.

Absolutely terrible, terrible issue. I didn’t think Amazing could get worse with Stan returning, but it did. Ugh.
