SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #12-15 (1977-1978)


Hate Monger nails Flash, Spidey, and Man Beast to the wall.  There’s a whole bunch of Flash’s Vietnam experiences going on in these stories, too, and two Vietnamese villains named Brother Power and Sister Sun.

It feels either somewhat racist, or, at least, reductive of Vietnamese culture.  Let’s skip over these issues quickly.

This story also debuts the villain Razorback, who is really dumb but John Byrne will put him to good use in about ten years in his Sensational She-Hulk series.

Creators: Bill Mantlo, Sal Buscema
Grade: C-
