How Lee & Kirby's "Fantastic Four" Birthed the Marvel Universe, Part 1
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
We’re still not at the Spider-Man moment I actually want from this storyline, but I have to get this other significant moment out of the way first.
So we begin Amazing Spider-Man #122 (by Gerry Conway and Gil Kane) with Spider-Man reacting poorly to the fact that the Green Goblin just killed his girlfriend, Gwen Stacy.
They have a quick tussle, but the Goblin escapes to a hidden warehouse. Spider-Man, naturally, is piiiiiiiiiiised off.
Eventually, he discovers the Goblin’s hideout, and they really have it out, and we see if Spider-Man’s rage can overcome his generally good nature…
(Note: The last panel was a prelude to the next storyline – so I excised it).
Pretty powerful stuff, huh?
I guess “the” moment is probably Norman’s death, even if Peter’s two speeches (the one at the beginning and the one at the end) may work better.
