History: (Spidey Super Stories I#25 - BTS) -
Eager to destroy Spider-Man, Doctor Doom built a twin machine in his
base in a New York City warehouse. The twin machine could copy anyone
who stood before its sensors, which were installed inside a giant,
seemingly inconspicuous looking mirror that hung right outside the
(Spidey Super Stories I#25) - While on patrol, the
presence of Doctor Doom alerted Spider-Man, who went into the warehouse
to investigate. Unaware Doom's base was hidden, he stood before the
mirror long enough for von Doom to activate the twin machine. With a
signature *snap & crackle!*, Web-Man popped into existence. His
costume, like his personality, was the exact opposite of his template
form: Spider-Man. While the hero resumed his route, still confused as
to why his spider-sense had gone off, Doom began instructing Web-Man.
His mission was simple: destroy Spider-Man. He immediately went to
check if his enemy was still near the mirror. Finding this wasn't the
case, "Webby," as Web-Man called himself, decided to search the city
looking for him while secretly intending to become ruler of New York
afterwards. His lack of experience became evident when Webby
accidentally crashed into a wall when he tried to web-swing away,
causing an exasperated Doom to conclude his creation wasn't perfect.

Web-Man never took off his mask but if Doom's twin
machine really did its work, we can assume both his hair and eye color
match that of the real Spider-Man.
Apparently, it took three writers to plot and script this innocent little 13-page kids' story? Guess that goes to show that no single person can come up with the amount of groan worthy, gawdawful puns included in the average Spidey Super Story.
