AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #138-140 (1974-1975)

So, after a few of the best issues ever, we get a few stinkers.  It starts with #138, in which we meet Mindworm–the silliest Spider-Villain ever.  He’s a mutant with tele-empathy.  Spider-Man feels sad about Harry Osborn being locked up, Mindworm senses it and starts to psychically attack Peter, and Spidey literally boxes his ears and wins the battle.

Like I said, silliest villain ever.  Oh no, wait:

In the next two issue, The Grizzly returns–along with The Jackal.

Okay, so none of that is good, but we do get the first regular black female castmember: The first appearance of Gloria Grant, Peter’s hot neighbor.

Creators: Gerry Conway and Ross Andru

Grade: C-.  Not terrible.  Slightly below average.
