In 1964, The Amazing Spider-Man #9 hit comic book racks, pitting the newly minted superhero against the man who would become one of his most legendary foes: Electro! For 50 years, the electricity-wielding supervillain has gone up against Spider-Man, by himself and as a member of the Sinister Six. And while his costume has occasionally changed -- most notably in this summer's movie "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" -- the original, iconic lightning-bolt suit has repeatedly returned to the comics page. Now, Diamond Select Toys has teamed up with marvelshop.com to create an exclusive box set featuring Spidey and Electro in their classic outfits!
After September 8, the Marvel Select Spider-Man vs. Electro box set will be made available on disneystore.com, and will begin to make its way to Disney Store shelves in the U.S. and Canada. Marvelshop.com carries a wide assortment of Marvel Select action figures, including the exclusive comic-based Savage Hulk figure, the exclusive Winter Soldier action figure, movie-based Unmasked Captain America and Falcon figures (from Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and an Unmasked Spider-Man figure as he appears in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."
