The Superhero in this irresistible Marvel Comic dons a red and blue jumpsuit, with an uncanny resemblance to the American flag. He is an epitome of valor, self sacrifice and pristine values, the numero uno one being the protection of the weak, the exploited and the hapless. The antagonist on the other hand is a monster led only by his selfish lust for power and invincibility. He can attack maim and kill anyone to establish his hegemony in line with his ever expanding territorial ambitions.

Now what happens if Spiderman and the goblin join hands?

Forgetting what his uncle tells him a few seconds before his gruesome death- “With great power comes great responsibility”; Spiderman decides to ignore the fervent pleas of the downtrodden and stands side by side with this fire spewing, super powerful fiend.

Watch out for this in the latest edition of the comic book, which will see Spiderman magnanimously vetoing the legitimate clamors of a long suffering community into dust.

Watch our “Friendly neighbor spidey”, in broad daylight gag and bound innocent men, women and children and zap them back to the ramshackled slums and ghettos where they have been languishing for years. The edition ends with Spidey and Goblin sharing the loot. The Daily Bugle still functions today. Instead of vilifying the saint, it now sanctifies the villains. It enjoys considerable readership and symbolizes public opinion.

In the chill of the night, at the scene of a crime
like a streak of light He arrives just in time
Spiderman, Spiderman Friendly neighborhood, Spiderman
Wealth and fame, he ignores Action is his reward
Look out, here comes the Spiderman….

“Yes we can”, “Change”, Go on…. Anything goes in a comic strip.
