The living brain story is pretty dated due to how we live these days with computers and all the Sci fi with robots. However, back then I'm sure this was pretty intense and cool. My only problem with the classics are how rude the heroes were. Peter trying to steal the torches girlfriend. The torch being upset that he showed up. I wonder if this the only time we will see a webbed bat.

the Human Torch's girlfriend is Doris Evans; Spidey crashes the Torch's party; guest stars: the Fantastic Four; reference to the Salvation Army

  • Peter Parker's eyeglasses are broken by Flash Thompson in the first story. This is the last time Peter is seen wearing eyeglasses. It would later be revealed that Peter never needed the glasses, and that Aunt May only asked Peter to wear them out of fear she had for his eyes, stemming from the fact that Peter spent so much time reading both school books and comics.

    @silverindigo4 Huh. I always thought, he needed them before the spiderbite, but not afterwards...and just continued wearing them, as to not arouse suspicion. This kind of explanation is a bit too much for me.

    Anyway, except for the character development a forgettable story...but I like how the Living Brain still exists today.

    I made the same assumption, actually.
