Comic Book Legends Revealed #418


The recent discussion in Comic Book Legends Revealed of DC fixing plot holes in reprints of Silver Age Superman stories led to reader Rob H. suggesting the same for a Silver Age SPIDER-Man story!

In the classic Ditko/Lee introduction of the Sinister Six in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1, there was a major plot hole...

You see, that's the exact OPPOSITE of what Spider-Man should have done.

And when the story was reprinted in 1983 in Marvel Tales #150, that's exactly what was done...

Amusingly enough, editor Tom DeFalco and staff did not just stop at correcting that error, but also made another change...



Thanks for the suggestion, Rob! Also, thanks to reader Father Dan for also noting the Dukes of Hazzard point to me a few years back. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________
