Spider-Man! The X-Men! A bunch of Hindu Gods! A… strange Russian scientist and his interpreter? Anti-Radiation Spray? A Rube Goldberg Machine of X-Men powers? Uh, this has to be MARVEL TEAM UP ANNUAL #1
Join hosts Cain Winstead, Matthew Deragisch and BATTLE OF THE ATOM podcast co-host ADAM RECK as they dive though the untouched corners and forgotten tales of the Spider-Man library on a hunt for lost gems and what it truly means to be a Spider-Man story.
In this episode of Untold Talks of Spider-Man, Cain, Matt, and Adam discuss 1976’s MARVEL TEAM UP ANNUAL #1, plotted by Bill Mantlo, Chris Claremont, and Bonnie Wilford, scripted by Bill Mantlo, drawn by Sal Buscema and Mike Esposito, colored by Hugh Paley, and lettered by Jim Novak. MTU Annual #1 is a wild ride with plenty of silver-age kooky developments with elements of the bronze age starting to poke through. A week long conference on a plane, off-the-wall problem solving, and plenty of radiation — this story has it all!
