L' UOMO RAGNO corno N.247 IL POTERE NELLE MANI hulk doctor druid 1979


1 disponibili



Anche in questo numero doppia razione di ragno con 2 spettacolari episodi sequenziali, tratti appunto dalla collana americana satellite The Spectacular Spider-Man (la cui dizione corretta del titolo andrebbe fatta con decisa e marcata inflessione ferrarese). Nella storia ancora una volta dal torbido passato dello pseudo-amico Flash Thompson
 riaffiorano le vecchie magagne rimaste in sospeso, generate dai numerosi pasticci che lo sbruffoncello ha combinato in Vietnam da soldato durante la guerra.

contiene inoltre : l’ incredibile HULK 
(che invece si pronuncia “álc” preceduto da un labile sospiro di ingoio d’aria, se proprio non c’è nulla di meglio) che si imbatte nel tenebroso Dottor Druido, un mistico super-eroe da recupero che aveva avuto una modesta ed effimera notorietà prima che arrivassero Strange, Casanova e Forest a mandare al ricovero lui, Otelma, il mago di Arcella, Giucas Casella e tanti altri vecchi ciarlatani .

    When Flash recognizes the leaders, Brother

    Sha Shan, only to be attacked by the twos light powers. 

    Peter changes into Spider-Man and fights Brother Power and rescues
    Flash from anymore harm, changing back his civilian identity afterwords. 

    When the police arrive, Brother Sun refuses to press charges, wanting
    to continue to spread his message. 

    Taking Flash back to his apartment to
    rest, Peter goes to Empire State University’s sociology professor to
    learn the origins of the Legion of Light.

    Returning to his apartment, he finds a note from Flash telling
    Peter that he has gone to talk Sha Shan into leaving her husband. 

    rushes to Flash’s aid as Spider-Man, where he is over powered by the
    combined power of Brother Power and Sister Sun. 

    Blown out of a window
    into an alley, the daze Spider-Man tries to shake off the effects of the
    attack as a new mysterious figure confronts him.


    • He is also concerned about the relationship of his roommate
      Harry Osborn and his girlfriend Liz Allan. She left him after it was
      discovered that she is the step-sister of the Molten Man as seen in Amazing Spider-Man #172173 (in Italy in URC #243). This is also the story in which Peter Parker suffered the injuries to his arm that are referenced in this issue.

    • Razorback’s Truck, the “Big Pig”


    Before Spider-Man can recover from an attack from Brother Power and
    Sister Sun, he finds himself attacked by a man called Razorback. 

    However, after a brief battle, Spider-Man is told by Razorback, that he
    is actually a would super-hero from the south, who has come up to New
    York to learn how to be a real super-hero and he just assumed that it
    was standard practice that upon first meetings super-heroes had to fight
    each other. The two then go to check on Flash and find that Brother Sun
    and Sister Sun have escaped. 

    Razorback offers his aid and gets his
    truck the Big Pig so that they can go after them. 

    Meanwhile, Brother Power and Sister Sun meet with the mastermind
    behind the Legion of Light movement, the Hate-Monger, who punishes
    Brother Power for his insubordination.

    Spider-Man, Razorback, and Flash
    track down the headquarters of the Legion. 

    There, they try to free Sha
    Shan but are easily incapacitated by the followers of the Hate-Monger. 

    The three would-be rescuers are then chained up in a dungeon with a bomb
    ready to blow, as the Hate-Monger boasts how he will use a televised
    rally to spread his message of hate to all who watch.


    • Spider-Man thinks the Hate-Monger is the original who died facing the Fantastic Four. That happened in Fantastic Four #21 (in Italy in F4C #16).
      However, Spider-Man is unaware that this was merely a clone of Adolf
      Hitler, whose mind would be transferred to a new body upon death , as
      explained in Super-Villain Team-Up #17 (in Italy in MARVOMN-SUPERVILLAIN TEAM-UP, 2017) and had been active since. However, this is not the original Hate-Monger, but an impostor, as revealed next issue.

    The Hulk emerges from the rubble more-or-less unscathed. Watching from their secret hideout are They Who Weild Power. They are unphased by this latest setback but are looking forward to plotting against the Hulk in the near future. Meanwhile, the jade brute pulls himself from the rubble and stumbles away.

    Waking up in an alley after a transformation into the Hulk, Bruce
    Banner is startled to find a man in a cloak watching over him. 

    Marvel Masterworks: The Incredible Hulk TPB_13_(Part_1) Page 46

    mystery man reveals himself as the mystic known as Doctor Druid who
    requests the Hulk’s aid stoping a great menace. Banner tries to explain
    that he can barely help himself but gives in an invites Druid back to
    his home. Using a spell to mask his costume and Banner’s tattered
    clothing, the pair return to the rooming house that Banner calls home.
    There his landlord, April Sommers, is happy to learn that Bruce is alive
    an unharmed after she heard that the construction site he was working
    on was wrecked in a battle between the Hulk and the Absorbing Man. When
    Banner excuses himself and goes back up to his room, April can’t help
    but wonder what sort of secrets her new tenant is trying to keep. 

    Once in the privacy of his apartment, Banner asks Doctor Druid what
    the problem is. Druid explains that there is a danger that threatens the
    entire world. He explains how ten thousand years ago a ceremony to try
    and control the Hellfire Helix backfire and the powerful mystical gem
    exploded into fragments. One such fragment, he explains, came into the
    possession of a savage that later would become the great monster hunter
    known as Uylsses Bloodstone. Another fragment ended up in the hands of a
    “mutant” who used the fragment’s power to prolong his life. From there
    he watched the pyramids being built and the fall of Julius Caesar.

    Later, this man managed to trick King Arthur and his knights that he was
    Merlin the Magician. However, when the real Merlin returned to Camelot
    he used his powers to put this impostor into a state of suspended
    animation and sealed in a crypt. Druid goes on to explain in more recent
    times the crypt was accidentally opened and this “Mad Merlin” battled
    Thor, who thwarted him. Escaping again and reinventing himself as the
    Maha Yogi, this menace clashed twice with the X-Men.

    Marvel Masterworks: The Incredible Hulk TPB_13_(Part_1) Page 49

    The Doctor concludes his tale by explaining that the Maha Yogi
    had remained in hiding ever since and amassed an army including the
    loyal warrior known as Mongu and that he plots to take over the entire
    world soon. With the story done, Banner refuses to become the Hulk even
    if it means the end of the world, as he is trying to keep the monster
    dead and buried.

    Continued to next issue…


    • This story states that the past adventures of Doctor Druid can be read in Weird Wonder Tales Vol 1. That series featured reprints of all of Doctor Druid’s early adventures (when it was named DROOM) that were first published in Amazing Adventures #1,2,3,4,6 (in Italy in MARVOMN AMAZING FANTASY and in MARVOMN RARE E MAI VISTE, the last one first published in THC #152).
    • Here are some facts about the Maha Yogi as they are explained in Dr. Druid’s flashback:
      • The scene where the Bloodstone shatters was originally depicted in Marvel Presents #2 (unpublished in Italy).
      • Doctor Druid incorrectly refers to Maha Yogi as a mutant. This is
        actualy revealed to be a false assumption. As later revealed in Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme #27 (unpublished in Italy), the Maha Yogi was actually given his powers by the Caretakers of Arcturus, as such he isn’t a naturally born mutant.
      • This story also clarifies the appearance of “Merlin” in Journey Into Mystery #96 (in Italy in THC #6),
        explaining that the Maha Yogi was merely posing as Merlin until he was
        uncovered and banished by the real being. This story also states that
        any statements that the Maha Yogi made about being the real Merlin
        himself are based on delusions the Maha set up for himself.
      • The flashback also references the Maha’s two battles with the X-Men in X-Men #30 (in Italy in CAPC #32) and 47 (in Italy in CAPC #48).
    • The being known as Mongu should not be confused with Boris Monguski who wore a mechanical suit that greatly resembled the real Mongu in Incredible Hulk #4 (in Italy in URC #62).
