Lizard erupts again, and Spider-Man helps Mrs. Connors and son Billy get into hiding.
Then he and Human Torch take on the creature. But first, he tries to give Johnny Storm cancer.
So Spider-Man just happens to carry asbestos webbing around all the time–even when he’s facing a reptile? This makes him a little Batman-ish.
It’s kind of a formula at this point: Lizard gets the upper hand, then he threatens his own wife or kid, then Spider-Man on his last legs forces him to change back into Dr. Connors.
It’s still a solid read, though, and Buscema’s art is terrific.
