Letters Column: The Amazing Spider-Mail

While his job under Dexter Bennet, the new owner of the Daily Bugle (Oops! Make that the DB!) is paying well enough that Peter can actually afford to repay both Harry and Aunt May, it quickly becomes clear that the paper's focus on casting Spider-Man in a negative light isn't likely to change.

In his time away from work, Peter's helping his aunt at the soup kitchen where she volunteers when one of the men who has been frequenting the place dashes off with the donation box. Unable to evade Spider-Man's pursuit, he escapes Peter's webbing before the police arrive. But when the thief, an addict with a habit to feed, stumbles into Dr. Curt Conners laboratory, does Spidey have another enemy in the making?
