Spider-Rama: Marvel Team-Up #17

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 #17
by Len Wein, Gil Kane, and Everybody


Spider-Man teams up with a member of the Fantastic Four! Oh wait, it's Mr. Fantastic.



POINTLESS TRIVIA
 
DUY: Mar-Vell is in the issue since this continues from the previous issue, but he does nothing, much like Iron man when he showed up. It's like a rule that the previous issue's guest star has to be useless if the story continues.

BEN: It was a rule for Iron Man to be useless, until 2008.

WHAT'S AGED THE BEST? 

BEN: I give you Marvel’s first official supervillain.




WHAT'S AGED THE WORST? 

BEN: Unmitigated moron.


DUY: This is a Kane staple and I hate it.


BEN: Stare at my weird drawings of faces! Stare at them!

NITPICKS

BEN: How would Spider-Man know Basilisk was a heistman?



DUY: Look at the cover. Just look at it. It makes no sense.  Spider-Man is swinging from Mr. Fantastic's left arm, under his right arm, punching someone who's clearly under his left arm, WHAT.

FAVORITE PANEL

BEN: Mine:



DUY: I love how Reed is just like "Yeah, no, Johnny's not here, go away." Even though Spidey needs him for the Spider-mobile everywhere else.




BEN: Johnny’s not home, little boy.


WHO WON THE COMIC?

DUY: Rick Jones. The Mole Man. I dunno. Whatever.

BEN: Short agile men.
