Amazing Spider-Man #330-331 (1990): Punisher


Peter Parker is a Batman fan.

Main story: Spider-Man and Punisher fight a cadre of drug dealers backed by U.S. General Charles Bronson. 

OK, the guy is just modeled on Bronson and it’s not an actual appearance by Charlie, but add the “death wish” line and this warrants a “celebrity appearance” tag below.

It is truly a story without value or merit—solely filler as Marvel pushes out 24 issues a year on this title, and several dozens on other Spider-Man and Punisher books as well.

Subplots: Venom escapes the Vault by having his host body, Eddie Brock, fake a suicide.  Black Cat wants to marry Spider-Man so she’s stalking and punching Mary Jane a lot.
