Why Amazing Spider-Man 5 is a Key Issue Comic

Since issue Amazing Spider-Man #1, the friendly neighborhood web slinger has had a contested relationship with the Fantastic Four.

First, Spider-Man broke into the Baxter Building, hoping to join the group. A few issues later, he and Human Torch exchange some heated words.

Now, in ASM #5, Spider-Man is taking on the Fantastic Four’s nemesis – Doctor Doom!

How can Spider-Man stand a chance against such a powerful enemy, especially given his history of narrowly escaping defeat?

Despite several vicious attacks from Doctor Doom, Spider-Man seems to be holding his own against the super villain.

Finally, Spider-Man gets some help when the Fantastic Four show up, but this does nothing to mend their relationship and Spidey splits the first chance he gets.

Guide to Amazing Spider-Man 5 Comic Book Values

Amazing Spider-Man 5 is the first appearance of Doctor Doom outside of Fantastic Four, making it an important milestone in Marvel history.

In Spider-Man’s early days, the Fantastic Four made many appearances, mostly to ensure Spider-Man’s continued success.

These crossovers have had a lasting legacy on the entire Marvel universe, and with new Spider-Man and Fantastic Four movies in the works, ASM #5 will continue to rise in value.

Doctor Doom's first appearance in Fantastic Four 5 has become a red hot back issue, and it's obvious that this first crossover is going to become the next-best thing.
