1st app Green Goblin (Norman Osborn); 1st meeting Hulk and Spider-Man; Steve Ditko cover & art; Comic Book Impact rating of 9 (CBI)Wherein Spidey gets his Joker, his Luthor, his Red Skull. Every hero needs an arch-villain, someone to completely define the hero's theme, struggle, and style -- and boy, is the Green Goblin one of the all-time greats. The identity and backstory of this compelling nemesis tie neatly into the Spider-Man story's themes of loss, tragedy, the tricky drama of dealing with friends and family, and the simple day-to-day difficulties of life. One of the most important and beloved of all Marvel keys.Early Spider-Man covers remain some of the most iconic images of the comic world. One can't help but feel the tug of nostalgia when gazing upon a Silver Age Steve Ditko Spidey cover, especially one in such incredible NM+ condition. The colors on this cover really pop, and the inclusion of the Hulk in the mix just serves to push the desirability of this classic off the charts. Spider-Man has proven to be a consistently popular superhero on par with Superman and Batman, and his cinematic franchise continues to drive the value of his keys into the stratosphere.
