Spider-Rama: Marvel Team-Up #22

 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 #22
by Len Wein, Sal Buscema, and Frank Giacoia

Spider-Man and Hawkeye vs. Quasimodo!




WHAT'S AGED THE BEST? 

BEN: I still love classic Hawkeye, such a jerk.

DUY: And as the movies have shown, Hawkeye is really this accurate.


WHAT'S AGED THE WORST? 

DUY: I guess naming the disfigured robotic villain "Quasimodo" doesn't age well, because the Quasimodo most people know is from the Disney movie and he's lovable.

BEN: Hawkeye’s costume has to be here because the movies didn’t use it, with good reason. However, I still prefer this costume myself, as gaudy as it may be.

DUY: I love Hawkeye's costume and I think it works excellently in a two-dimensional line art setting. If the movies can somehow find a way to make the Wolverine costumes work (and it hasn't), I think it can figure out Hawkeye's.

NITPICKS

DUY: Hawkeye uses a back quiver, and according to this website, a back quiver can hold up to 24 arrows. However, from the start of the story, not including the flashback, Hawkeye fires 10 arrows. But by the end of it, his quiver is still clearly full. And how do they stay in the quiver after getting knocked around so much?

BEN: It’s like when someone in a movie fires 12 rounds out of a shotgun.

FAVORITE PANEL

BEN: Mine:



DUY: Mine:





WHO WON THE COMIC?

DUY: Defaulting to the guest star, here, so Hawkeye.

BEN: Hawkeye, because they were obviously trying to carve out a place for him in the universe at the time.
