In Amazing Spider-Man #50, Peter Parker is in a bit of a pickle. Aunt May has fallen ill, once again, and Peter feels that he has been ignoring her since he moved into an apartment with Harry Osborn a few issues back. As he notes, if he were not off fighting crooks as Spider-Man, he’d have been able to see her sooner. In addition, Peter’s grades are falling, because he’s spending so much time fighting crime. On top of THAT, he had to blow off an offer of a date by his fellow college co-ed, Gwen Stacy, because he needs to raise his grades. In addition, Norman Osborn offered Peter a job at his company, but since Peter was still in school, it would have to be a night job, and Peter can’t work nights because he’s patrolling the city as Spider-Man at night.
Basically, being a superhero is causing a lot of problems in Peter’s life.
He turns on the TV to relax, only to see J. Jonah Jameson do a commercial for a program he sponsored by offering up $1,000 for Spider-Man’s capture.
Peter is distraught – maybe Spider-Man IS a menace!!
This leads to…
You don’t get much of a better cue to finish this baby than with one of the most famous full-page spreads in comic book history!
