This issue is about Spidey wanting to quit super-heroing, and going to talk to Stan Lee about it. Alright, so…there’s no real reason this can’t be canon, since Stan Lee exists in the Marvel Universe — he even hosted Saturday Night Live back in that issue of Marvel Team-Up.
This was light-hearted, but for me…I dunno, most of the jokes fell flat. It wasn’t my cup of tea. The art, however, was really cool.
Seeing as how recently Spider-Man has kinda regained his motivation (post ASM-200), I don’t think this works quite right here. It should be moved back before that issue, possibly closer to Stan’s SNL appearance.
