Amazing Spider-Man #182-183 (1978): 1st Big Wheel; Peter Proposes to MJ

Rocket Racer returns, and this story introduces Big Wheel, who literally is a villain who sits in a giant wheel.  Way to start your run, Marv!

This is also the story where Peter proposes to Mary Jane, and she says no.

They worked in a product placement, but I’m pretty sure back then this wouldn’t have been a paid-for appearance by Cracker Jacks.

She says no, and Peter says he was “jilted.”  But that’s not the definition of jilted…

Creators: Marv Wolfman  and Ross Andru
