Nothing says "Silver Age" like watching a super-villain rant for the first few pages of a comic. Kraven the Hunter had a tendency to go on and on, right up to his death in Kraven's Last Hunt. Here we see some classic rants from Amazing Spider-Man #34:
I will die to cover that plaster head with Spider-Man's mask.
Or, maybe I'll just ask Spider-Man for one of his masks to cover that plaster head.
Or, maybe I'll just take that plaster head down and put up one of those plastic mounted trouts that sings.
It appears I have several options that do not directly involve my death. I must decide the order in which I exhaust the various avenues.
My special jungle herbs.... or as you would call them: steroids.
Jungle scent.... or as you would call it: rhinoceros urine.
And someone want to explain to me why getting sprayed with something stinky would "cancel out" Peter's spider-sense?
I didn't think so.
Here's an offer for boys, teenagers, and young men!:
This might have been a totally legitimate, harmless enterprise for Big Bruno, but I make it a personal policy to never take anyone up on their offer that is directed exclusively to "boys, teenagers, and young men." It's worked for me so far.
See you tomorrow!
