“Night of the Flag!”

Rating: 4/5

Writer: Gerry Conway

Captain America is told to help La Tarantula capture Spider-Man. Obviously, they skew the facts enough to make him agree to such a thing. While fighting Spider-Man, Captain America sees that La Tarantula has lied to him and is really a bad guy. Spider-Man defeats La Tarantula and turns him over to immigration. Tombstone breaks into Roland Rayburn’s office and tells him Kingpin wants to meet him because Roland has the power to make people do what he tells them to. Joe Robertson investigates Tombstone.

“Phreak Out!”

Rating: 4/5

Writer: Gerry Conway
Artist: Alex Saviuk

The kid that controlled the robot in the last issue puts on a bionic suit that he was developing for the science fair. It gives him some extra power, but when someone comes in and turns on the lights it overloads and courses high amounts of electricity through his body. Then he has the ability to overload electronics just by touching them. He goes to Peter’s house and kidnaps Mary Jane, then Spider-Man comes after him and defeats him. There are also some short interludes. One is about a guy named Roland Rayburn who is a sleazy account exec for big criminals. He’s being followed by a mysterious man who calls himself Tombstone (first appearance of Tombstone). Joe Robertson apparently has encountered Tombstone before. Also, a South American soldier is turned into the new Tarantula, now called La Tarantula, and sent to America to kill Spider-Man (who killed the old Tarantula).
