> Great list. I think it needs only Morbius, in the 1970s column.

I had a nasty feeling I'd forgotten someone important, and Morbius sounds about right. Now that I think of it, maybe Black Tarantula and the 5th Green Goblin for the 90s, too. Beyonder and Firelord for the 80s, maybe?

> Maybe also Silver Sable (who wasn't a villain per se but definitely had conflict with Spidey). She was mid-1980s.

I'm not really sure if I'd include her as a villain myself.

> 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.

In general, I wanted to go for any "major" or "recurring" foe, and just threw in a few others of note to bulk out some of the decades. Almost included Facade just to freak people out.

> 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.

Well, they first met in the 60s, so if you want him on the list, that's where he goes. In retrospect, I probably should've added him.

This might be a bit picky, but you can also include Fortunado for the '90's as well. You can also throw in Armada and Joystick, as well as a couple others from the "Great Game."
