Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #060 (1981)


Rating: 3/5

Writer: Roger Stern
Artists: Ed Hannigan & Jim Mooney

Spider-Man fights the Beetle, but the Beetle keeps anticipating his moves. Then Spider-Man falls into a sewer, and The Beetle doesn’t follow after, thinking it’s a trap. Instead, he kidnaps Gibbon for bait to make Spider-Man fight him later.

He challenges Spider-Man via TV and Spidey goes to fight him. Spider-Man rips an antenna off the Beetle that was the source of his power or something then gives Beetle a good punch to the face and just levels him.
