Spiderman: Just one chance . . . these trunks are as strong as a truck!

Got to work fast!

Hang on boy! Here comes the blow!

Now to tie the final knot.

Well, the bigger they come — the harder they fall.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Spiderman: Oh, oh!

Oh, oh! Looks like more trouble. And here it comes!

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Spiderman: Time to split: Not out of this yet.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Ice man: Spiderman, ain’t it?
Spiderman: Yes, but who, who are you?
Ice Man: The ice man. I just stopped in off my regular round to pick up a load, to get caught up on my work, you know.

Lucky for you I did.

Spiderman: Boy, it was cold in here.

Ice man: I know my ice, and I know you must have been like that for at least twenty-four hours.

Spiderman: Twenty-four hours?

Ice man: Yeah, you were almost a goner. Somebody turned the thermostat way down to absolute zero. Boy he must be some kind of a nut.

Spiderman: No. He’s a mighty cool customer.

Ice man: Well, in your racket, you must meet all kinds.

Spiderman: You say this isn’t your regular run.

Ice man: No, I’m not supposed to pick the ice here until morning. But I got a little ahead, and I figured, what’s the harm.

Spiderman: You sure figured right!

Ice man: But like I was saying: who could have frozen you up like that?

Spiderman: Hmmm. They obviously planned to do away with me before the ice man got here. So I guess I can soon expect another visit from the crooked Dr. Cool!

Spiderman: What time is it?

Ice man: It’s midnight.

Ice man: Gee, what are you going to do?

Spiderman: I think I’ll get set for a hot reception.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Gaur, Henchman: Yeah Doc. A real gem of a setup. I wonder what we’ll get for this?

Spiderman: This time you’ll get the cooler.

Gaur, Henchman: Spiderman!
Dr. Cool: No!

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Police Officer: I’ve got to hand it to you Spiderman; they were a pair of slippery characters. How did you handle it?

Spiderman: I don’t know. I guess you could just say I kept my cool.
