1. This issue of "Spider-Man's Tangled Web" features one of the best parts of any comic-verse. The villain bar. I love scenes of villains just hanging out, grousing about heroes, comparing notes and relaxing. Which is why I included a few scans of just that.
2. This story is an example of the fact that Norman Osborn doesn't need a costume, glider or control of an international martial agency to be one of the scariest motherfuckers on the planet.
We enter a seedy bar in NYC. A man in a fedora and trench-coat enters, his face in the shadows.
Now, some hilarious bar-talk, villain-style.
The man in the fedora is here to meet Adrian Toomes (The Vulture) and Kraven the Hunter (Alyosha Kravinoff).
The main reason they are there is talk about their latest encounters with Spider-Man and to bitch about the Webhead and the supers in general. They shoot the shit for awhile and then they start talking about the ladies.
Kraven then claims to have slept with the Black Widow, Toomes calls bullshit and the man in the fedora says, "Redheads can be very crazy and difficult"
Adrian and Kraven tell about their latest encounters. Kraven is annoyed that Spidey stuck his nose in his business. Adrian's latest rant is how the just hates the fucking jokes and how Spidey never seems to take their encounters seriously.
Kraven makes fun of Toomes, they come close to blows when...
Now, that is a great fucking villain moment.
