> My list is based on when they were impact players, SPidey's biggest threat, not when they first appeared!
> 1960s: Green Goblin - Learns Spidey's secret ID. Without that, he was merely another villain. With this, the future havoc Norman plays doesn't happen.
Agreed- Great stories and the greatest villain Spidey ever faced.
> 1970s: Doctor Octopus - Death of Captain Stacey. Pete loses yet another Father figure, his girlfriends dad no less.
Agreed- the romance with Aunt May was also great stuff, a personal vote of mine is also HAMMERHEAD...
> 1980s: Hobgoblin/Kraven - The mystery of the hobgoblin. 'nuff said. Kraven's last hunt. Ditto.
Forget Kraven, Hobby is the way to go. All those stories 238-239, 245, 249-251, 275-276...come
on HOBGOBLIN ALL THE WAY!!!!!
> 1990s: Venom - The last true classic original villain. Popularity still looms as evident by the hype around Spider-man 3.
One word- VENOM
> 2000s: Morlun - Present for the biggest changes in Spideys modern life. Responible for the beating that left Pete so exhausted that his spidersense wasn't able to warn against Aunt May discovering the ID. Also major player in his 'death' and evolution.
Do they even make Spidey comics anymore outside of the MOVIE???? Thats how bad I think the stories are today...lol
