Hostess ad that appeared in November and December 1976, in the titles above and most likely others. Based on publication date, I read this in the wrong order.
I think the villain in this is the same as the Human Fly, who we’ve seen before, and who later shortens his name to simply “The Fly”. The costume is fairly similar, so I’m going to go with it.
Spidey awakens as a prisoner of the Fly, apparently after being thrown from the top of the Empire State Building. Spidey breaks free of his bonds, and distracts the Fly with some delicious Hostess Twinkies.
It was good to see a real super-villain, but like the last outing, this comic didn’t make a lot of sense and had really weak dialogue.
