Phantom" (Kenner Give-a-Show Projector slide, 1968)
Phantom did not appear to
possess any superhuman powers. He had access to an abandoned carnival,
had rigged to trap others. The carnival's
Funhouse entrance could project knockout gas and the Phantom could rig
roller coaster cars to run people over.
(Spider-Man in "The Frustrated Phantom") - Having apparently lured Spider-Man to his abandoned carnival, the Phantom sprayed Spider-Man with gas, knocking him out. He then placed the captured Spider-Man on the tracks of the carnival's roller coaster, planning to kill the hero by running him over with the roller coaster cars. At the last minute, Spider-Man hit the "stop" lever with a webline, effectively halting the coaster cars. He then swung across the track and kicked the Phantom.
Comments: Created by an
unidentified writer and
there was a Phantom
character that Spider-Man fought in an episode of the 1960s Spider-Man
series ("Fifth Avenue Phantom") who looked very similar to this
believe they are either not the same character or different
counterparts of the
same character. Perhaps the one seen in the Kenner Give-a-Show slide is
Earth-616 counterpart of the animated series Phantom? I do not believe
Give-a-Show slide takes place within the confines of the Spider-Man
series universe because 1) Spider-Man's costume was not missing
webbing, as it
was on the animated series, 2) the Give-a-Show slide does not (to the
my knowledge) adapt any of the animated series episodes and 3) the
in the Give-a-Show looked slightly different (he wore a full-body robe,
the animated series Phantom appeared to wear a purple costume with a
rather than a robe).
