So you think you turned the tables, huh? Guess again. This is a little move I picked up from watching Iron Fist in action!

I've studied your fighting style too, Spider-Man, so I can second-guess your every move--and counter it with, say, a little of Daredevil's agility!

Synopsis for "Hero Worship!"Edit

Peter Parker is about to be mugged by a gang called the Butcher Dogs when Jack Monroe steps in to save him (or at least saving him from spoiling his secret identity). Peter and Jack hang out until a kid that looks up to the Butcher Dogs swipes a package Jack was carrying, a commercial art piece he was delivering for Steve Rogers. Peter and Jack each slip away to switch to their other identities to chase the kid and end up unwittingly meeting again as Spider-Man and Nomad. The kid has met up with the Butcher Dogs at a back-alley meeting of several gangs the Taskmaster is recruiting for his new client, Black Abbott. When Spider-Man and Nomad beat the gangs and save the child, he decides to give up on the Butcher Dogs and start emulating super-heroes instead.

  • At one point, Taskmaster attacks Spider-Man with a sonic arrow but Spidey is able to deal with it easily. This issue was published just a month before his alien costume's weakness to sonic attacks would be revealed in Amazing Spider-Man #258.
  • This issue is reprinted in comics and books, see references for more info.[2]

Solicit Synopsis:

His name is The Black Abbot.. . and he can mesmerize people with his voice! Can Spidey and Nomad stop him ... or the terrible Taskmaster from organizing street gangs in his behalf?
