Synopsis for "The Grotesque Adventure of the Green Goblin!"Edit
This story is reprinted from Amazing Spider-Man #14.
There's a new costumed villain in town, the Green Goblin. After he's perfected his flying broomstick, he visits the recently released Enforcers and offers them the opportunity to get revenge against Spider-Man. He travels to California to visit B.J. Cosmos, a film director who made it big with his last film "The Nameless Thing From the Black Lagoon in the Murky Swamp." The Goblin offers him his next cinematic spectacular: A movie about Spider-Man.
Returning to New York City, the Green Goblin circles around the city until he gets the Spider-Man's attention. He makes a film offer to Spider-Man, who agrees to participate. With the announcement that Spider-Man is going to be in a film, J. Jonah Jameson sends Peter to Hollywood to cover the story. This worries Betty Brant, because she believes that Peter might fall for some silver screen starlet while he's in California.
Arriving in California, Peter reports to B.J. Cosmos' studio as Spider-Man, and he, the Green Goblin, and what he believes to be actors resembling the Enforcers are taken to New Mexico for a desert fight sequence.
The Green Goblin reveals his true motives, and Spider-Man battles him and the Enforcers across the desert. Their fight takes them into a cave, where Spider-Man easily defeats the Enforcers. However, they stumble upon the Hulk's hiding place. Spider-Man is forced to defend himself from the jade giant. He uses the Hulk's strength to his advantage, tricking the Hulk into smashing a boulder blocking the cave exit.
Spider-Man fails to prevent the Green Goblin's escape, and hides until the Hulk leaves the area. He leaves the Enforcers to be collected by the police. Returning to Hollywood, Spider-Man finds that B.J. Cosmos has canned the Spider-Man movie idea, in favor of a Hulk movie. When Spider-Man demands payment, Cosmos refuses, citing the contract: Spider-Man would only get paid if the movie was completed. Peter is forced to use the rest of his money to bus back to New York. Meanwhile, somewhere in the city, the Green Goblin resumes his mysterious civilian guise and begins plotting his next scheme against Spider-Man.

Getting a phone call from Henry Pym to go out on a date, the Wasp has to decline, because she is stuck at home babysitting the son of her sick friend. Ending her phone call, young Tommy asks the Wasp to tell him a bed time story.
She tells him a story about Shann, the ruler of a distant planet. The people of Shann's planet are content, and Shann is worried that this will mean that they will take him for granted and not be awed by his presence. He soon comes up with a solution to become exalted by his people again: invade another planet.
He preps his people to go to war against the planet Andromina, and has his people build weapons of war and space ships to attack the people. They find the people of Andromina are peaceful farmer folk, and are easily defeated. Shann has his troops destroy their cities and farm lands in the name of conquest until the people of Andromina surrender.
Shortly after their conquest of the planet, Shann is praised as a hero, but soon comes to realize that his decimation of Andromina's means of being self sufficiency has forced him to provide to them, so that they do not starve. Soon the people of Shann's planet begin having to work to sustain the people of Andromina, as well. Eventually, the people of Shann's home world grow to hate him for lowering their quality of life.
Soon, Shann realizes his own vanity has cost him the respect of his people. Finishing her story, the Wasp asks if Tommy like the story, however the boy is more interested in knowing why the Wasp only has her wings when she's wasp-sized.
