What have I done to deserve this? I've stated time and time again that my least favourite crazy power of Johnny's is to create fire duplicates of himself to confuse an enemy (or, once, to track an enemy). Here, he not only does this, but he states the plan - to confuse Spider-Man. Presumably this will work until Spidey hits one of them and his fists pass right through them. Of course, if Johnny doesn't shut up, it'll be pretty easy to work out which is the real one.

Thankfully Johnny is the only person displaying crazy powers in this issue and there definitely won't be a post tomorrow detailing Spider-Man's new powers.

Oh no.

Check out our coverage of Strange Tales Annual #2 on our sixteenth episode: The Best Of Annuals, The Worst Of Annuals. It's the one where Steve walks out over the utter ridiculousness of the story, leaving the show in the hands of Andrew and guest-host Jon M. Wilson.
