TIn amazing Spider-Man #17 we have the tale titled “The Return Of the Green Goblin!”. This  feature offers a lot of pieces, that all add to the larger tapestry of the issue as well as the ongoing adventures of Spider-Man.  From the blunder early in the issue, where spider-man interfere with the filming of a Movie,( a theme that in some ways brings us back to the green goblins last appearance, and also reminds us of other stories) Serves as a starting ground for discrediting Spider-Man.

Though all this  Peter Parkers greatest school yard enemy Flash Thompson proves -quite ironically-  to be Spider-Mans most loyal fan, and thus pushes for the start of a Fan club.  In creating this, Flash with the help of Liz, whom has her own motives sets up a further meeting of the club at a well of club, and prom ices in the newspaper spider-mans arrival.   Just the kind of opportunity Green Goblin has been looking for.

So, the club draws out Spider-Man hoping to fix his reputation,  Green Goblin hoping to defeat Spider-Man,  Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) with his date Doris Evans show up to see the hero, J Jonah Jameson hoping to find something to use against Spider-Man, And  if that’s not enough, there is a whole club full of full of fans as well.

But that is not even half of the adventure and thrill in the issue…
