When we last left our heroes, J. Jonah Jameson had repeatedly owned Spider-Man on live TV, causing our favorite web-slinger to seriously consider giving up his secret identity. But not content with mere verbal attacks, JJJ has gotten Tony Stark involved in his anti-vigilante vendetta!

I love it when writers really explore the traumas that motivate villains, show the lurking nightmares distorting their minds, and push the demons in them to the extreme. I mean stuff like Kraven's Last Hunt, or the brilliant Maximum Carnage. Seeing as how Doctor Octopus is currently the star of the Superior Spider-Man, I think it's the right time to take a walk in his trouble mind:

What with many of us getting misty-eyed over the loss of the Superman-Lois Lane marriage, I thought I'd present a story that many of you (especially the young'uns) might never have seen.

Back in the day, Superman was so popular that not only did he have two titles (three if you count Superboy) but his girlfriend Lois Lane and pal Jimmy Olsen had their own spotlight series as well. Eventually, however, sales on these ancillary titles dropped enough that DC decided to merge them along with some other characters into one big book entitled "Superman Family."

It kept the numbering of "Jimmy Olsen" , and eventually reached #200. As a celebration of this milestone, the magazine had an extra-long imaginary story, depicting the future marriage anniversary of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.



I've tried to stick as closely as possible to the 1/3rd rule, so extreme choppiness ahead.

This is one of the stories that hold a deep place in my heart. I knew nothing about the Crimson Avenger before this since he's only mentioned very rarely in DC these days. In current continuity he's considered one of the first DC heroes to show up in the "modern day" inspiring the later Justice Society and Justice League.

Lord knows if it's still in continuity, I think it is, but he's fought alongside the Seven Soldier of Victory and while originally just a classy suit wearing character he later donned some superhero duds which kinda look silly but they do remind me of the Dan Garret Blue Beetle so I can't call them awful. After his stint with the Seven Soldiers of Victory he was transported to the near present roughly the time Infinity Inc started to show up I believe.

Still it's also a good example of a backup story being so much cooler than the front or main story and I hope you folks love it.
