Amazing Spider-Man annual #18 (1984)

J. Jonah Jameson marries Marla Madison, and Scorpion kidnaps her because no Marvel wedding is complete with a villain crasher.  (Someone should write about a villain wedding and have heroes crash it!)  The title to this story is great: “The Scorpion Takes a Bride (but not in the way you think)!”

Isn’t that a great title?  Stan has always been best as a marketer.

In all, a pretty good story—especially for an annual, since annuals are usually pretty bad.

Creators: Tom DeFalco (plot), Stan Lee (script), Ron Frenz (breakdowns), Butch Guice and Bob Layton (finishes)
Grade: C
