The Amazing Spider-Man #9

Stan Lee // Steve Ditko
February 1964
*****
The heroic plot follows the usual formula, intro-ing a new Silver Age baddie:  a living dynamo w/ crazy headgear. As usual, the subplot makes the ish. Peter’s in a vise, faking photos to pay for his aunt’s surgery. But his gal Betty provides emo support & shows some vulnerability of her own.
