Spider-Rama: Amazing Spider-Man #128

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!

WHAT'S AGED THE BEST? 

BEN: This:


DUY: If this happened in 2020, the racist fans would be complaining that a black character exists.

BEN: Peter finally using his built-in excuse.


DUY: Perfect in today's day and age. "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." Or “We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere." by Elie Wiesel.



WHAT'S AGED THE WORST? 

BEN: This.


DUY: Heeheehee, his name is Shallot.

BEN: This whole Vulture imposter plot. So the experiment made him look exactly like Toomes for some reason?



DUY: The genetic mutation and facial changes idea has now been introduced, though, and that's going to be important in around 20 issues.

NITPICKS

BEN: Maybe don’t wear a bright yellow jacket then.


FAVORITE PANEL

BEN: Mine:



DUY: Mine:




WHO WON THE COMIC?

DUY: Once again, Gerry Conway, who hits a LOT of positive check marks in this entire issue.

BEN: And Peter isn’t a total dick this time.
