365 Days of Defiance, Day 74: The Web of the Amazing Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man

Peter Parker, the Pulchritudinous Pspider-Man, has been cornered by the Gruesome Grinning Green Goblin! (Gosh!) Also, he's besieged by bonsters monsters! Luckily, Spidey realizes just in time that it's just a buncha playing cards illusions, and he knows exactly the precise way to conquer Green Goblin! Spider-Man knows at last...the way to beat him!

Panels from Spectacular Spider-Man (1968 magazine series) #2 (November 1968), script by Stan Lee, layouts by John Romita, Sr.; finishes by Frank Giacoia; letters by Sam Rosen

He has come upon the clever plan of webbing Norman's Goblin Glider away from him! The superhero equivalent of jamming a broomstick into your nemesis's bicycle spokes!

Let us all salute Spider-Man for coming up with a clever strategy and for defying not only the Goblin but overcoming his own deepest fears. Please try not to remember, however, the storyline that followed this one where the Green Goblin sued Spider-Man for reckless endangerment in Manhattan Civil Court.

I'm pretty sure this is from The Spectacular Spider-Man. If it's from XXX I really want to see that movie now.
