It's time for another installment of "First Strike" Friday, taking a trip down Memory Lane to see our favorite superheroes battle our favorite super-villains for the first time! This week, one of Marvel's heavy-hitters, our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man confronts one of his most famous enemies - Doctor Octopus!
To wrap things up, this is a must-read for any Spider-Man fan, and it's been reprinted in numerous trade paperbacks and solo comics, including the recent True Believers comics Marvel's been doing lately. Not only did it introduce us to an iconic villain, but it was a key lesson in determination for a young hero facing defeat for the first time. Do yourself a favor and don't pass this up.
