ALBO ORIGINALE DEL 1978

Falling to his doom, Spider-Man escapes
this fate by creating a web-hang glider, even though he makes a rough
landing. Fixing up his Spider-Man costume at his apartment, Peter is
stuck dealing with Glory Grant who pops by for a visit, and Mary Jane
who rushes over to Peter’s apartment when she learns of the damage and
sudden disappearance of Aunt May. Peter plays dumb, hoping for some way
to get out of there so he can resume his search for Aunt May as
Spider-Man. He gets just what he wishes for when Joe Robertson calls him
and asks him to come to the Bugle.
There, Peter is only asked to check out the spectacle of Jameson’s
latest replacement secretary since Betty Brant went on her honeymoon
with Ned Leeds. When word about Dr. Octopus kidnapping an old woman and
taking control of Brooklyn Labs gets out, Peter rushes out there as
There, Dr. Octopus is building a device he hopes will destroy the
ghost of Hammerhead which has been haunting him since Hammerhead’s
supposed death. However, he is delayed by not only the arrival of the
Hammerhead ghost (who starts terrorizing both May and Octopus), but the
arrival of Spider-Man.
However, Spider-Man’s intervention allows for Hammerhead’s spirit
floating into the path of the device. Octopus actives the control
hoping to be rid of his tormentor forever, however something entirely
unexpected happens: Hammerhead is restored back to a physical body.
