Dr. Time stealing time


(Spidey Super Stories#44/1) - The villain calling himself Doctor Time began a crime spree to steal all the clocks in New York City so as to increase his power in order to use it to become the “King of Time“ and rule the world. Having the ability to speed up and slow down time around himself, he was able to steal without being caught, but his actions were noticed by Spider-Man and the android Avenger, the Vision. Spider-Man was able to temporarily web Doctor Time up, but the criminal easily cut himself free using the hands on his chest-mounted clock. Time after time, he evaded the heroes' attempts to capture him by using his ability to speed up or slow down their attacks. Eventually, time ran out and his chest-mounted clock unrepentantly stopped and he was then quickly captured by the two heroes. The villain was then subsequently arrested and taken away by the police.

Comments: Created by Alan Kupperberg (writer), Winslow Mortimer (pencils) and Ricardo Villa Monte (inks).

The story in some way resembles the Hostess advertisements, just longer and more drawn out.

Spidey Super Stories come from two sources. The first is a regular story with a well known guest star and villain while the other type revolves around characters and scripts from the Electric Company TV show.
