Synopsis:
The Masked Marauder puts into a motion a plan that pits Spider-Man and Daredevil against each other. Meanwhile, the Masked Marauder steals the plans for a new engine design. Spidey tracks down Daredevil to the law offices of Nelson and Murdock and attacks Nelson believing him to be Daredevil since Murdock is blind.

Jay's Notes:

  • It's rather interesting to see Romita's first take on Spider-Man. He draws Spider-Man in a what can clearly termed a Ditko Spider-Man. Romita will eventually move on to become the regular Spider-Man penciller and define his own art style for the webhead.
