Amazing Spider-Man Vol.1 #212


The adventure with the Sub-Mariner is over! And now the cargo ship with the wall-crawling escort heads back into port. But before the vessel can dock, a bizarre accident sends a crewmember tumbling overboard near an experimental undersea generator! And instantly a new super-villain is born...Hydro-Man! Shortly thereafter Morrie Bench (aka Hydro-Man) starts settling scores with old enemies across the city! And Spider-Man is on his list! At high noon atop an NYC office building, Hydro-Man tries to drown the web-slinger! Does the amazing one need a life jacket?
