Letters Column: The Spider's Web

Spider-man uses all of his available contacts in a search for information about Lefty Donovan, but unfortunately, these leads indicate that Lefty Donovan couldn't possibly be the Hobgoblin. Elsewhere, the Hobgoblin's search for super-strength continues, as he uses none other than Lefty Donovan as a test subject! Causing him to believe that he truly is the Hobgoblin, Lefty challenges Spider-man to a fight, but when the Hobgoblin's hypnosis begins to wear off, he terminates the test... and Lefty Donovan!
