Another issue for people who haven’t read a lot of older issues. They first talk about Spider-Man and his abilities, then move onto other major characters like Jameson, Joe Robertson, Mary Jane, Aunt May, Harry Osborn, Flash Thompson, Gwen Stacy, etc. All the while discussing the history of major events in Spider-Man’s life throughout the years. Then they talk about a few locations in Peter’s life. His house, the Bugle, Aunt May’s house, etc. Then they have a long gallery of Spider-Man’s forgotten foes. A lot of them are from issues of Marvel Team-Up. Then they end it with a few cool, full page shots of Spider-man.
