Spider-Rama: Marvel Team-Up #5


Welcome to Spider-Rama! Every Monday and Wednesday, Ben and Duy will look at a Spider-Man issue from the very beginning, in chronological order, and answer questions for various categories, inspired in large part by one of our favorite podcasts, The Rewatchables by The Ringer. Our goal is to make it to Amazing Spider-Man #200. Will we make it? Grab your Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus or crank up your tablet to Marvel Unlimited, and then tune in every Wednesday to find out!

MARVEL TEAM-UP #5
by Gerry Conway, Gil Kane, and Mike Esposito

Spider-Man and the Vision battle the Monstroid.




POINTLESS TRIVIA 

DUY: Oh good Lord, it's the freaking Vision.

BEN: The Vison is Duy's favorite Marvel character.

DUY: As drawn by Gil Kane. Great. Just great.

BEN: In hell, this will be the only comic you own.

WHAT'S AGED THE BEST?

BEN: We’ve finally found Duy’s comic book doppelganger.


WHAT'S AGED THE WORST?

DUY:  The Vision. Kane's art. Ugh, I dunno, this whole thing was painful. Why did you do this to me.

BEN: This may be even worse than that Amazing Spider-Man annual with Peter Parker's parents.

NITPICKS

DUY: No, Vision, you are not having "epileptic seizures," you overdramatic synthezoid.



BEN: He’s a real boy!

FAVORITE PANEL

BEN:
 Melodramatic villainy:

DUY: Awkwaaaaard:



WHO WON THE COMIC? 

DUY: NOT the Vision, who is 100% useless until the very, very end of this story.

BEN: These three characters have nothing in common. It seems like they spun two wheels and one landed on the Vision and one landed on the Puppet Master. So I’m going to give it to Conway, for making anything out of this.

DUY: That's it for Spider-Rama today. 

BEN: Thank you, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko— 

DUY: —for telling us we aren't the only ones.
