  So it seems that the end of last issue dovetails right into the beginning of this one, with the Maggia still threatening Doc Conners. But at the end of last issue, Mrs. Conners is the person that Spidey talks to to find out that the Doc got kidnapped by the Maggia. Then at the beginning of this issue the Maggia had already kidnapped Mrs and Jr Conners, and had them in New York? Either Quicksilver is doing some moonlighting on the side for the Maggia, or the Doc took a LOT of convincing.

  The fountain of youth, eh? OK. Not bad. Also, trust us, Harry...Peter ignoring your idiotic 'stache is all the comment you need on that hideous thing.

  4 stars for the Incredible Lizard! Just don't make him angry! You wouldn't like it when he's angry!!!

Cover Me - I don't think a clay tablet can be petrified...

Riot - I like Spidey going all Cool Hand Luke on Caesar!!

Tingling - Spidey's spider-sense could've warned him about the booby-trapped door...

Babel - I do question hieroglyphs of biochemical symbols though...

  Harry is just a young man struggling to find his identity. He is going through his beatnik phase. He was probably all excited to show Peter his new stache and Petey totally dissed him. I remember on the 90'sSpiderman cartoon when Silvermane took a potion to make him younger and ended up as a baby who crapped his diaper.

  So if Silvermane knew what was on the tablet, it wasn't much of a secret then. Makes me wonder why no one else thought to translate it as a formula, and how Connors did it without any form of reference.  
 
 

  Russ Says:

  So Silvermane knew about the secret of the tablet? That's not much of a secret then, is it? So it makes a guy younger and more energetic, eh? Back then, it was a serum off a tablet; today, we call it "Red Bull!"

Oh, and you gotta love Gwen here: "The man needds help, not hostility. If you're his friend, then act like one. The unreasonable hostility is MY department!" I just had to shake my head at that one.

And yep, we have poor Doc Connors making with the change. Well, it can't be all bad; if he fails in taking over the world again, he can always help us save as much as 15% on our car insurance.

4 stars. Oh and Harry? You got spinach on your lip.

  So, the Fountain of Youth, on an ancient tablet, displaying modern bio-chemical symbols. Sounds legit?

Did they find it in Florida? How close to right was Ponce de Leon?

  ...Okay. I'll buy that as a reason that they needed Dr. Connors. +1 for the excellent fight scene, as well as for Harry's mustache.

  In the 1968-70 pantheon of Marvel Comics, The Amazing Spider-Man sits in the center position. It has the best writing and above average art. While Fantastic Four and Thor play the Hades and Poseidon positions, Spidey is Zeus, the best of the best. I guess that makes Captain Marvel a faun.

Anyway, 4 stars.

  This issue kinda fell apart for me. Really enjoyed the artwork but I'm trying to not think too much about the plot.
