Finally character growth 0

At least a little, when Peter Parker and Betty Brant finally start to show what they are feeling. Also this issue shows that J. Jonah Jameson is not all that bright. He decides to print that Spiderman and Electro are the same person. Without hard evidence. Seriously, he used the same theory that had midevil scientists believe that flays grew out of old meat. The increased stupidity of our favorite Marvel news paper editor aside, this once again is a fun book to read, and Electros introduction g...

Electro Vs. Spider-Man: Part 1 0

Electro isn’t really that well know in among casual Spider-Man fans and this could be explained by one of two reasons. It could well be because he did not appear in the most famous animated series that just about everybody knows or it’s because he appears in only two comics in the first one hundred issues of The Amazing Spider-Man. Story- Aunt May is in the hospital and whilst Peter is by her side a new criminal is out on the streets, he is Electro who acts as a conductor for electri...

Electrifying! 0

The cover: 5 stars Another classic cover, possibly the best to date and introducing the first new villain since issue #6 … Electro. The cover says it all … how can Spider-Man fight someone he can’t touch. It’s another really colourful cover and villain on a rooftop setting; I love the way Ditko draws buildings, he has a fantastic perspective and I feel that some of his best Spider-Man covers have rooftop scenes in them. The Man Called Electro (22 pages) This is a very important issue as it intro...

Shocking Debut 0

This issue of course is Electro's first appearance. Sadly he is percieved as a joke not hardly in the cartoons that I know of. I mean he was even defeated very quickly back in the wedding issue.What we do get is aunt May on her death bed for the first time. . Jonah thinking as usual that Spidey is Electro and is behind this. We also get Electro's origin which was told very well. Of course Lee and Ditko worked their butts off after last issue sub par stories .Definatly good to read and a near cla...

The Man Called Electro 0

A highly significant, influential and most of all, well-told story this month as Peter Parker finds himself struggling against the tides of his double life. As if being a superhero isn't taxing enough (hey, ask that Human Torch chump why don't you?), imagine having to balance it out with the pressures of high-school, unrequited love, sick relatives, hospital bills, ademanding boss and your kick-ass costume getting wet. Well, that's the life of Spider-Man, and while it had been well conceived dur...

First Appearance of Electro 0

Part of CV's Top 100 Spider-Man Universe Stories - reviewed!I have to be honest, I never liked Electro. Part of it is that stupid face mask. I know, it's supposed to be stylized bolts of electricity - to me it's always looked dumb. Then there are the things in this issue - Electro's first appearance and origin. To begin with, his origin is probably the least creative and hardest to believe of all the early Spider-Man villains. There's the physical expression of his power - his electrical bolts l...
