SOMETHING NOSTALGIC... MY FIRST COMIC BOOK.
About Amazing Spider-Man #192:
"24 Hours till Doomsday!"
Spider-Man and J. Jonah Jameson are shackled to a bomb together by Spencer Smythe, this bomb is primed to go off in 24 hours. Smythe, who is dying gloats that he will destroy the two men he figures destroyed his life. Spider-Man, not wishing to be blown up leaves the scene when he can't convince Smythe to disarm the bomb.
When Blake Tower decides that Spider-Man and Jameson should be taken somewhere safe, Spidey refuses to accept letting Smythe win and escapes with Jameson. Meanwhile, Betty Brant is trying to gather Peter's friends together to be on hand when Peter gets his diploma and even calls Mary Jane. MJ misses the call by moments as she leaves her apartment to go and meet up with Peter for a scheduled date.
Meanwhile, Mary Jane grows impatient of waiting for Peter to show up for his date, and calls another date, deciding that Peter has had his final chance with her.
Finally free, and having cheated death, J. Jonah Jameson goes from being a coward begging Spider-Man for help to berating the wall-crawler and accusing him of his involvement in the whole plot. Spider-Man, fed up with dealing with Jameson for one day jumps out the window and escapes, leaving the emotionally unstable Jameson to lament over the fact that he hates Spider-Man for making him feel inferior.
