Spider-Rama: Marvel Team-Up 31

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 #31
by Gerry Conway, Jim Mooney, and Vince Colletta

Spider-Man and Iron Fist vs. Drom the Backwards Man!



POINTLESS TRIVIA
 
BEN: The first appearance and death of Drom the Backwards Man.

WHAT'S AGED THE BEST? 

BEN: I like that the universe is still young enough that Peter can see a new hero and compare them to a hero he recently met.




DUY: Are they fighting Benjamin Button?




BEN: I wonder if Brad Pitt would sign on for a Benjamin Button vs Spider-Man movie. BBvS.

WHAT'S AGED THE WORST? 

BEN: Brad Pitt would never dress like this.



DUY: There's really no reason they need to show us what Benjamin Button is saying. Just tell us to read it backwards.

BEN: Did they ... just kill him?




DUY: Isn't that the same as the Silvermane ending?

BEN: Yes, but with Brad Pitt.

NITPICKS

BEN: I don’t know that Iron Fist’s karate chops could break manacles that are holding Spider-Man and his superstrength captive. Also, a load of webbing?



DUY: I don't get it. They forget everything, but Peter recorded it. What's their memory of that night then? 





BEN: Everybody was kung-fu fighting.


FAVORITE PANEL

BEN: Mine:




DUY: Mine:





WHO WON THE COMIC?

BEN: The eventual Benjamin Button universe.
