As a child of the 1970’s, I freely admit that my comic book opinions are skewed by the Me Decade. I dig Mike Grell’s Legion, John Romita’s Spider-Man, and Dick Dillin’s JLA. I know that ROM and the Micronauts are firmly and forever part of the Marvel Universe, licensing restrictions be damned. I even own a large collection of Treasury-sized editions (comics more giant than Giant-Size), including the wonderful “Superman Vs. The Amazing Spider-Man,” one of the earliest stories I ever read featuring either character. In part because of this issue, I have always equated Doctor Octopus as being Spider-Man’s most cunning and powerful foe, which gets me into arguments with Green Goblin fans whenever I mention it.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced “Roe-Mee-Tah”) is this: Who is really Spider-Man’s greatest enemy? Is it Green Goblin? Doc Ock? Vulture? Hypno-Hustler?
