    Yep, they were fun books. The good ol' days of Marvel, how I miss them.

    I've read it, its not particularly iconic and I recommend reading the first bunch of issues. Maybe to issue 60 or so?

    As far as historical significance - its a good time capsule of the types of themes and characters in play during the 1970s in Marvel comics. As far as story significance - zero worth there. None of them had any long-term impact and the ties any of them have to mainline stories in ASM are minimal. Even when Gwen Stacy died, there was barely a mention in MTU.

    They are just stories that entertain - many are outdated products of their time. but nearly all of them are entertaining. The Claremont issues are definite stand outs.
    Every day is a gift, not a given right.

    One of my favs! MTU had some really good 1-2 part stories. There are a few references in ASM to stuff that happened in MTU. Nothing too important though that I can remember. Still worth a read if you have a chance.
