"The Wings of the Fearsome Fly!" Script by Marv Wolfman. Art by Keith Pollard (layouts) and Jim Mooney (finishes). Cover by Al Milgrom and Bob McLeod. Peter Parker's life is a train wreck after surviving his recent 24-hour ordeal. In very short order Jonah fires him, Mary Jane dumps him, and Ned Leeds punches him! Oh my, where is a super-villain when Spidey really needs one? Fortunately, there is one flying around town for the web-slinger to vent his frustration upon: the Fearsome Fly! But when the wall-crawler and the Fly collide at Cleopatra's Needle, Spider-Man's day just gets worse. Meanwhile, the original burglar from Amazing Fantasy 15 is back...and still haunting (Aunt) May Parker. Cameo appearances by Mary Jane Watson, Betty Brant, and Mysterio (in civilian clothes). (Notes: The Fly appears next in Spider-Woman 30. The plot briefly crosses over with Fantastic Four 207. Other than a cameo appearance in issue 201, Mary Jane Watson exits the Amazing Spider-Man series for the next 4 years.) 32 pages. Cover price $0.40.
