(Spidey Super Stories#43/4 (fb) - BTS) - Seeing
flimsy kites in the air, the Human Kite lifted up on the wind to
dominate the sky.
(Spidey Super Stories#43/4) - Fargo North and several
kite-flying children had their paper kites ripped apart by the swooping
Human Kite. Frustrated at the bullying, North quickly whipped up a kite
with Spider-Man's logo to attract Spidey's attention and help against
the bully. The Human Kite tore the Spidey kite apart just as the hero
appeared and delivered a punch before swooping North and the children.
Spider-Man splashed the Human Kite with water and he turned to attack,
saying he was tired of playing. However, distracted by Spidey, the
Human Kite crashed into a tree, damaging his kite's structure. North
and Spidey helped him down while the children returned to kite flying.
Comments: Created by Jim Salicrup &/or Alan Kupperberg (writer), Win Mortimer (pencils), Ricardo Villamonte (inks).
The other kite flyers look like the Electric Company's Short Circus band members.
This Human Kite has no known Earth-616 counterpart and should definitely not be confused with DC's Kite Man.
