> > 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?

> Smythe/Spider Slayers
> Beetle
> Molten Man

Great list. I think it needs only Morbius, in the 1970s column. Maybe also Silver Sable (who wasn't a villain per se but definitely had conflict with Spidey). She was mid-1980s.

Some of those I wouldn't count as "major villains" though, but for the most part its better to um... overspec a villain than under-spec one I guess.

Also, I wonder where someone like Doom would fit. He didn't debut in a Spider-Man book but was a major villain for him on a few occasions.

It's intersting how many derivative villains there are in later decades, especially the 1990s. Another Venom, another Goblin, two more Kravens, three evil Spider-Men, another Jack O'Lantern. Yeesh!
