Basic stuff, but it’s a fun read. Villain has clichéd goals, but he’s formidable. 6/10

  I absolutely HATE that the Basilisk's alter ego's name is Basil Elks. Puh-lease.

  I've been waiting for these two team-up mags, to well, team-up. The only redeeming point however was the banter between The Thing and Spider-Man. Nothing much to see here.

  Not a bad story once we got past the pages and pages of recaps.

  That end was so cheesy. Two stars story, but it gets one more for the amazing drawings of Basilisk.

  I agree with Spencer. 1/3 of the comic being a recap is ridiculous.

  Yup, pretty good story, but I didn't mind the reminder of Basilisks origin.

  For those that hate the Basilisk (like myself) you'll love his next appearance in FF 289.

  The Daily Bugle only has one photographer. JJJ truly is a cheap ass.

  Jeez, this is like the worst of the golden age coming back to remind you that the other comics you're reading right now aren't all that bad. The art, the story, the villains... Seriously, this could have been released around 63 or 64 and it wouldn't have been out of place alongside the Human Torch solo stories and Ant Man.
The ending mystifies me, because all throughout the comic, from page 1, we see the city on fire, and getting more and more destroyed. The the bad guy is beaten and everything looks pristine again. Also, they tried punching him for two issues without success, so naturally the way they finally beat him is... by punching him. Jeepers.

  While I like the interplay between Spidey and Ben, and trust me, these two do have great chemistry together, that couldn't even begin to save this issue. Most of the comments above spell it out so I won't rehash, but you'd think Johnny would fly over and the three-way banter would at least make the issue entertaining, albeit banal.

1 star. Pssst, spoiler. After Basilisk hit the volcano from that double-punch, Hercules towed it out to sea. That's how they got ride of it so fast!
