The Amazing Spider-Man #235 (1982)
“Look Out There’s a Monster Coming!”
Writer: Roger Stern
Artist: John Romita Jr.
Will o’ the Wisp and Tarantula fight their way into East River. Everybody thinks they drowned. Peter’s thought he would have great photos to sell to Jameson, but they’re all ruined. The government wants Jameson to kill the expose he’s doing on the Brand corporation, because it might give them a chance to cover things up before the government can get evidence on them. Spider-Man goes to James Melvin’s house (the head honcho at Brand) to investigate. Will o’ the Wisp shows up and tries to kill Melvin for turning him into Will o’ the Wisp. Spider-Man stops him. Melvin gets away. But then he comes back in in the arms of the Tarantula beast.
