Welcome to the first edition of Comics' Biggest Boners, in which we showcase some of the biggest goofs and gaffes in comics!Click here for the archive!
And now, your host, 1950s Joker!
I got the idea for this feature from a gift I got over Christmas, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN OMNIBUS! We all know about Peter Parker, the Amazing Spider-Man! This is the second panel (the first on the second page) of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1, our titular hero's second appearance ever, by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko:
However, back in the day, they'd run two stories in one issue. The second story in that one shows Spider-Man trying to join the Fantastic Four. Also done by Lee and Ditko, this story is notorious because of the fact that Stan Lee screws up Peter Parker's name not once:
Yes, in two instances on the same page, Stan Lee mistakenly calls Peter Parker "Peter Palmer"! Here are the captions zoomed in.
That's pretty funny, huh?
You can read the story in the reprints below! I know for a fact that the Omnibus preserves the boner, but I'm not sure about the Marvel Masterworks edition. If anyone has it, feel free to tell me what the deal is.
