Manic Monday Bonus--The Greatest Marvel Team-Up Story Never Told!!

The end of a letter published in Marvel Team-Up #21 (1974):

Which leads to perhaps the greatest story idea ever:


That's the man, always trying to keep us down!!

Whoa. What, no comments about when Archie met the Punisher? Absolutely inconceivable, it must be said :I

Anyroad, what I wanted to point out here is the whole "Spidey's gay" subtext that pops up every now and then (with much less frequency than Batman or Superman, though) and even occurs between Spidey and the Sentry in their first meeting (via SNL apparently: "You're not so bad yourself", "Both pretending not to be gay") and between Spidey and Daredevil (in the daily newspaper comic strip: "Daredevil's got a great bachelor life here in San Fran"), among other places.

In this case, it's the hilarious reference to Archie *himself*(!) being caught up in Peter's homosexual web-lines: "Archie's a swinger, isn't he?".

Omg, lmfao...totally!

Who wrote the answer to this letter? Which editor was it? Whoever it was, he knew his characters anyways :P
