Marvel Team-Up #149 (1985): Cannonball

It’s getting very near the end.  Spidey and Cannonball of the New Mutants team up for a one-and-done villain.  The story is adequate, but I don’t really like the “aw shucks” hick-like characterization of Cannonball, who isn’t really like that in The New Mutants.

I do like Spidey as a bug on a windshield, though.

This is the penultimate issue, and Danny Fingeroth explains that MTU will be replaced by Web Of Spider-Man.  Because what Marvel needed was a third monthly Spider-Man book?

Creators: Louise Simonson and Bret Blevins
Grade: C-
