Dennis the Menace is Spider-man?


With great menace comes great irresponsibility.

What th--?! Yes, according to this comic, DENNIS THE MENACE #7 (May 1982, Marvel), Dennis really IS Spider-man! Well, OK, he just dresses up as Spidey to go to a party at Margaret's... and spider-themed mayhem ensues! Pretty funny stuff... Margaret even references Spidey's sweetie Black Widow while batting her eyes at Dennis. The one odd note in the comic is a one-page "psychoanalysis" of why Dennis is the way he is. Apparently he's not really a "menace", he's just misunderstood. Or something. My eyes glazed over about four sentences in... must be an '80s thing.
