The Amazing Spider-Man #214 (1981)

“Then Shall We Both Be Betrayed!”

Rating: 4/5

Writer: Denny O’Neil
Artist: John Romita Jr.

Spider-Man manages to rescue the last person from the burning building. Wizard and his mysterious partner free Sandman and Trapster from prison to reform the Frightful Four.

Sub-Mariner hassles the Peter’s new neighbor lady, and Spider-Man saves her and fights Sub-Mariner. Sub-Mariner tries to tell Spidey that the girl is not what she seems. She’s actually an old enemy of his named Llyra in disguise as a normal woman and is the mysterious person who broke Wizard from jail and is now working with him. Wizard shoots Spider-Man and Sub-Mariner with some device as they’re fighting and some kind of great pain comes over them.

Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #042 (1980)

“Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!”

Rating: 3/5

Writer: Bill Mantlo
Artist: Mike Zeck

The Frightful Four, a villain team made up of Sandman, Electro, The Wingless Wizard, and the Trapster lure Spider-Man to the Statue of Liberty by posing as the Human Torch. They get the better of him and bind him with a paste. Then they set off to do the same thing with Fantastic Four by posing as Spider-Man. They really hate Spider-Man and Fantastic Four and want to kill them both.

Story continued (after Spider-Man is captured) in Fantastic Four #218. (from what I read on the Marvel Wiki) Trapster poses as Spider-Man and infiltrates FF’s Baxter Building. Him and the rest of the Frightful Four defeat all but Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic). Spider-Man frees himself and helps Reed Richards and Fantastic Four defeat Frightful Four.
