Amazing Spider-Man #37 (1966)

Not much to say here.  Gwen is still portrayed as an essentially silly character, lacking substance, and the main story is…Meh.

We do meet Norman Osborn for the first time–by name.

Spider-Man saves him from being murdered by a disgruntled business partner, Professor Mendel Stromm, who attacks Oscorp with a robot.

The saboteur is caught, and is about to tell Spider-Man the secret story of his reasons for attacking Oscorp, when he is almost shot.  Spidey doesn’t capture the sniper, but we do get to see who it was…
