AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #16 (1964): Daredevil

This story has beats that are already starting to be familiar.

The two heroes meet and fight. And of course it would be ridiculous for a relatively non-powered dude like Daredevil to hold his own against Spider-Man, but it’s explained: Spider-Man is hypnotized and can’t think for himself.

Daredevil breaks the trance, they team up, and they take on the Circus…

…And then Ringmaster.

Spider-Man wins because he closes his eyes.

And this concluding panel is great because it’s like the end of every episode of Scooby Doo.\
