Throwback Thursday: Amazing Spiderman #197 -Kingpin’s brutal beatdown!
Throwback Thursday presents:
~Kingpin’s big-time beatdown~
– Okay, here’s the deal, we all know that Spidey and Kingpin have thrown down before, and its pretty formulaic how it turns out…but MAN! – this time Kingpin really puts them hands on Spiderman! I can’t really recall all of the details (its been awhile since I read it) but I do remember this: They go toe-to-toe for something close to HOURS; Ol’ Wilson Fisk smacks Peter around front, back, side to side! …to the window to the wall!
Maybe Peter’s little snide remarks and corny one-liners got under Kingy’s skin something fierce? ionknow. But what I do know is that Kingy damn near beat Spidey’s brains with a F**KIN’ SOFA. A SOFA!
By the time the dust settled, Peter is at Kingpin’s absolute mercy – when suddenly, wifey Vanessa Fisk comes stumbling in talks Kingpin out of it before finishing the job!
LOL! As brutal as this issue is I just found it sooooo hilariously ironic that Spiderman, with all of his vaunted powers and abilities, just caught a classic bare-knuckled, non-powered, ASS-stomping!
