So, here's a little scene I came upon in Amazing Spider-Man #170:
All my greatest enemies! Well, I'm not sure how the Man-Wolf got into a group of my greatest enemies, but there you have it!
Actually, I was bringing this up, because it seems like Peter might be used to this by now:
Yup. Not two years earlier, he was having hallucinations while under the influence of an enemy's chemical attack.
So, what was going on in issue #170? He was having hallucinations while under the influence of an enemy's chemical attack.

On an unrelated note, Pete hallucinates a lot about the vulture, doesn't he?
Hey, it's time for a crossover!:
For non-comic nerdlingers, this is a typical sales ploy where a new and/or floundering character has a storyline with an established, popular character. In this case, Marvel was hoping that by being forced to read an issue of Nova, you might get in the habit of buying the book on a regular basis.
Which you didn't, because Nova not only had his original series cancelled, but the three attempts at re-launching his solo title over the years have all failed. I find it hilarious to see Spider-Man on an anchor with Nova getting dragged down below the surface because.... well, you clearly get how woefully appropriate an analogy that is.
