As far as I know, most of Spidey's major villains (Green Goblin, Doc Ock, etc.) made thier debuts, like Spidey himself, in the 60's. The biggest exception to this would be Venom, debuting in the 80's. But I was wondering, which, if any villains debuted in the 70's?

I don't just want to limit things to the 70's though, basically, I just would like to know if there's a breakdown by decade of villains introductions, just to get a feel for the various eras, 60's through 00's.

He was pretty big in the 1960s, too, appearing in three Ditko stories and another three arcs under Stan with John Romita and Gil Kane. That's more often than Electro managed to appear in the Spider-books during their first decade.

What happened to Kraven? He became more of an MU villains. The 70s set him against various jungle and animal-themed heroes, like Ka-Zar and Tigra, and gave him a couple of matches against Daredevil to boot. The long absence from Spidey's books was what made him seem like a bit player in the 80s...that, and an early 1980s story by Denny O'Neil that portrayed him rather weakly.
