“To Fight the Unbeatable Foe!”

Rating: 5/5

Writer: Roger Stern
Artist: John Romita Jr.

Spider-Man goes after Juggernaut for vengeance after he nearly killed Madame Web. Juggernaut nears the pier where his boat’s waiting. Spider-Man takes a tanker truck and drives it directly into Juggernaut (but jumping out before impact) and it explodes fantastically. Juggernaut walks out of the wreckage on fire, Terminator style. Spider-Man leaps onto his back and covers Juggernaut’s eyes. Juggernaut gives him the pounding of a lifetime until he discovers that he’s stepped in wet cement on a construction site. Spider-Man watches him sink all the way to the bottom. Peter visits Madame Web in the hospital, but she’s had some memory loss due to brain damage and doesn’t recognize him.

“Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut!”

Rating: 5/5

Writer: Roger Stern
Artist: John Romita Jr.

The Juggernaut’s employer wants Madame Web for her psychic abilities. Juggernaut walks off the boat and starts walking to her apartment. In a direct, straight line. Breaking through buildings, knocking cars out of the way. The title does not lie. Nothing slows him down, he just walks through everything. Madame Web got a vision of this and contacts Spider-Man. Spider-Man can’t do anything to stop him. Juggernaut picks Madame Web up out of her life support chair and she goes into convulsions. Spider-Man tells him she’ll die if not in that chair. Juggernaut drops her and says she’s no good to him dead and walks away. Spider-Man gets furious and an ambulance takes Madame Web to the hospital.

“The Prophecy of Madame Web!”

Rating: 3/5

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

The first appearance of Madame Web. The new sleaze, Rupert Dockery, working at the Daily Globe where Peter works is hatching a plan to take over the Daily Globe. The plan involves murder. Murder most foul. Murder of the woman running the paper, named K.J. Clayton. Spider-Man saves Clayton and puts Dockery behind bars with the help of a psychic vision by Madame Web. Madame Web, being the psychic she is, also figures out that Spider-Man and Peter Parker are one and the same. Also, after all the debacle, K.J. resigns from the Globe and the paper suspends publication. Leaving Parker out of a job. But he’ll get hired by Jameson at the Bugle for sure.
