AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #48-49 (1967)

amazing spider-man 48

Meet the new Vulture.  Younger than the old Vulture.  Vulture’s cellie, Blackie Drago, puts on the green wings and manages to beat the snot out of Spider-Man.  I say the snot because Spidey has a cold, which makes him weaker.

And more powerful.  He beats up a helicopter, and Spidey has to save the passengers, but hits his head.

Between the cold and the head injury, Vulture can capture him.

Kraven gets jealous so he attacks Vulture.

And, of course, Spider-Man wins in the end.

Speaking of winning, Mary Jane is looking nice…
