The Problem with This Issue is a Problem with Dr. Doom In General 0

Spider-Man meets Doctor Doom in this issue of The Amazing Spider-Man. It has a nice complex plot thanks to about a dozen pages of setup that go something like this: J. Jonah Jameson buys TV time to blast Spider-Man in an editorial. One of the viewers happens to be Dr. Doom who thinks that Spider-Man would make the perfect ally in his fight against the Fantastic Four. He manages to contact Spider-Man, but Spidey wants no part of it and flees. Meanwhile, Flash Thompson decides to scare Peter Parke...
