Marvel Mystery Handbook: 70th Anniversary Special In the end, Richard Wentworth discovers that the secret behind the Green Death is something in the water.
That combined with excitement… action… any rush of physical activity… triggers the poison. Unfortunately, by the time Wentworth discovers this fact, he has drunk the water, himself. Now he must remain calm and cool… or die. Not easy to do and still defeat the madman and rescue Nita Van Sloan. Oh yes, Nita was captured… yet again. This story does leave some unanswered questions that still nag at me.
He was infected with the Green Death. Time and again, we see Wentworth start to exert himself, only to feel the clutch of the Green Death, yet at the end, he runs up the catwalks, frantically fights his way through… He runs, he climbs, he swings on his silk cord, with all his strength he urges his body, he strains every muscle to keep going. And he lives. Did the drug wear off? What about the blank-faced men? What was their fate?
Last we saw them, they had turned mad, and gleefully watched men and women being slaughtered in that giant mowing machine. Will they continue to receive the potion that relieves the symptoms of the burning torture? Do any still live? Will they be cured? Again, we receive no answers. And what of little Bobby Hanley? Wentworth promised his dying mother that he would care for him, but nothing further is said about it.
As it typical in many of these pulp stories, the fiendish poisons just appear from nowhere. How the gangsters obtain them, how they were created and by whom, these things are never explored. They just got them… and use them! Also typically, The Spider is caught in a series of misunderstandings. Since he is present when the Green Death strikes, he is blamed. This is a common theme that runs through The Spider stories. The injustice of it is intended to inflame readers, and it works.
Citizens go to the police with information which could help them solve a case, but they ignore that information because they have their own agenda.
They interpret what they hear in ways that fit their preconceived ideas. Once again, police fail the city they are supposed to protect. This theme is a recurring one in The Spider stories. But sometimes, the sheer repetition of it seems unbelievable. It almost is illogical how pig-headed the police are portrayed in these stories.
And speaking of the police, their behavior here is outrageous. In one scene, Wentworth, disguised as a non-descript middle-aged man, and Dr. They are not shooting at The Spider… they are just shooting at a middle-aged man and a doctor. The change of title was an editorial decision, and one which may forever remain unexplained.
This is the last Spider story written by Wayne Rogers. He wrote 11 of the Spider pulp adventures. Among his other pulp works were nine Operator No. For his Spider swan song, Wayne Rogers did a great job, creating a really fun story. I liked it a lot, plot holes notwithstanding.

Life was bliss for millionaire adventurer Richard Henry Benson until the fateful day crime and greed took away his wife and younger daughter and turned him into something more than human.
