Spider-Rama: Marvel Team-Up #12

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 #12
by Len Wein, Gerry Conway, Ross Andru, and Don Perlin

Spider-Man and Werewolf by Night vs. Moondark!


POINTLESS TRIVIA

BEN: First appearance of, sigh, Moondark.



DUY: Yet another mind control plot.

BEN: This is the second specific reference to Peter drinking milk in this series. Is that a thing?


WHAT'S AGED THE BEST?

BEN: Tight continuity between the two Spider-Man series.


WHAT'S AGED THE WORST?

BEN: Sigh, Moondark.

DUY: Were we just coming up with compound words at some point for villain names?

BEN: This art looks like it’s mostly Perlin, so it goes here. Sorry, Don.

NITPICKS

BEN: Not a full nitpick, but if I had done the cover dress I’d have put “Werewolf by Night.”

DUY: He wakes up with no memory as the werewolf and he says "Spider-Man... in San Francisco?" How does he even know he's in San Francisco?

FAVORITE PANEL

BEN: Mine:


DUY: Sure, I'll pick this one.



WHO WON THE COMIC?

DUY: Moondark, who would somehow NOT be a one-off villain.

BEN: Compound words.

DUY: That's it for Spider-Rama this week.

BEN: Thank you, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko—

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