etragedy's The Amazing Spider-Man #16 - Duel with Daredevil review

Spidey vs. Daredevil Round 1

This is the first time Spider-Man encounters Daredevil. The two make a pretty good pair, their powers and goals being similar. The villain of the piece is The Ringmaster and his Circus of Crime. Ringmaster hypnotizes Spider-Man and has him fight off Daredevil.

Once that battle is over, the issue pretty much consists of Spider-Man single handedly mopping the floor with Ringmaster and his cohorts. Daredevil 'watches' from the stands as Matt Murdock. Really the Circus of Crime is pretty much a joke as it seems Spider-Man could beat them with one hand tied behind his back.

My biggest problem with the issue, aside from the ease with which Spidey whomps the Circus of Crime, is that Daredevil's heightened senses are taken a little too far - things like, in a crowded circus tent full of people and performers, he's able to pick out Spider-Man's heartbeat, etc. Aside from that it's a decent, if not particularly outstanding issue.
