The Amazing Spider-Man #348 (1991)

“Righteous Sand!”

Rating: 5/5

Writer: David Michelinie
Artist: Erik Larsen

Peter is feeling lonely and gets a tip from Ben Urich that something might be going down at the trainyard and he should take some pictures. Peter changes into Spider-Man and heads over there. Sandman is now a reserve member of the Avengers and everybody knows who he is. Somebody tells him he saw some people in camouflage loading guns into a truck. Sandman goes to check it out, finds out it’s a plan to steal nuclear waste at the trainyard, and calls the Avengers to help take them down. Spider-Man and Sandman take out a lot of the guys before Thor, Captain America, Sersi, Quasar, She-Hulk, and Black Widow show up to finish the job. Captain America lightly reprimands Sandman because it’s not a global incident and that’s what the Avengers take care of now. Sandman thinks he’s being fired and storms off. Peter returns home and rediscovers that he’s not lonely as long as he’s got MJ. The Black Fox comes back to town for one last big score.

“The Final Calculation”

Rating: 3/5

Writer: Gerry Conway
Artist: Sal Buscema

Spider-Man and his team wait at the Avengers building. Spidey attacks Captain America and instructs the rest to do likewise. Eventually, Spider-Man turns into The Space Phantom and when the real Spider-Man returns from Limbo, he tries to call a truce. Puma finds the Space Phantom and the fighting stops. Space Phantom tells them what happened. Quasar locks him in an energy prison cell and they all go review the files on the building that the cloud came out of. Space Phantom’s master comes and sends him back to Limbo. Spidey and the Avengers find out that the building was once owned by a mystic who brought a locked chest back from the Amazon. And mysterious murders began popping up shortly after. Spidey and the Avengers fight the black cloud. Spider-Man says it might not be a single being and they come up with a plan to lock it back in the chest and throw it into space. Turns out it was a swarm of microscopic cannibal insects and the young god Calculus organized this whole thing to make sure the swarm didn’t fall into the hands of Kingpin.
