Spider-Rama: Marvel Team-Up #16

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!

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #125
by Len Wein, Gil Kane, and Jim Mooney

Spider-Man and (sigh) Captain Marvel vs. Basilisk.


POINTLESS TRIVIA
 
BEN: The first appearance of Basilisk!

WHAT'S AGED THE BEST? 

BEN: Peter trying to see a movie.

WHAT'S AGED THE WORST? 

BEN: Ugh, Basil Elks? Wein wasn’t even trying.



DUY: Basil Elks looks like Vincent Price. Or Egghead from the Batman 66 show.



BEN: Is cretin a fancy word?


DUY: Also, Mar-Vell.

BEN: Mar-Vell is the absolute worst.

NITPICKS

BEN: Would a museum security guard have a gun?




DUY: Wouldn't he?

BEN: Ben Stiller didn't get one.

FAVORITE PANEL

BEN: Outwitted?



DUY: I will say this is kind of clever of Kane to kind of maximize whatever space he had to work with here.




WHO WON THE COMIC?

DUY: No one wins reading a Mar-Vell comic.

BEN: Rick Jones, because he never can be in the same place as Mar-Vell.

DUY: Yeah, but imagine having Mar-Vell in your brain.

BEN: I don't want to. In a medium where every character gets revived, Mar-Vell never has. That should tell you something.
