Eye of the Beholder
Continued from the previous issue.
After throwing Sandman and Hydro-Man into the river, they fused together into a mud giant. The "Mud-Thing" ended up capturing Sadie Frickett, who sensed that the creature wouldn't hurt her and allowed herself to be carried away.
A week passed, and the Mud-Thing was put on trial. Thanks to Matt Murdock, however, Sadie won the case on behalf of her two boyfriends. Another week went by, and the Mud-Thing was a big hit on Broadway. However, after seeing Sadie smooching with the agent managing their show, jealousy triggered the Mud-Thing to go into a mindless rampage.
In the true fashion of the influencing movie, the beast climbed up a building with Sadie in its hand, Choppers arrived and released some gas onto the Mud-Thing, causing it to crumble into pieces, and the creature's remaining parts fell down the building - along with Sadie. After Spider-Man fired a web net just in time and brought her safely to ground level, the agent she had kissed earlier talked about making a movie out of Sadie's tragedy. Sadie immediately left him, claiming that she was uninterested.
As Spider-Man looked on, he concluded the issue with a quote from King Kong, "It was beauty killed the beast," adding on that "What he forgot was that Beauty didn't do too well, either."
- The second-half of this issue is an utter homage to the iconic character, King Kong, who appeared in a recent 1976 remake movie as of this issue's release.
