Indexer Notes

Story is reprinted in wrong place in continuity (several villains aren't introduced until future issues)
In this reprint, alterations are made to the dialogue and artwork so that Spider-Man no longer grounds himself before facing Electro.
Aunt May bemoans missing The Dukes of Hazzard (while kidnapped). The Beverly Hillbillies in the original.
