    ASM #353-358 (Round Robin: The Sidekick's Revenge)
    One nice thing about reading some truly terrible Spider-Man stories - it makes the "merely bad" ones seem a lot better by comparison. It's Spider-Man, Darkhawk, Nova, Night Thrasher, Punisher, and Moon Knight vs. Midnight (clearing an open thread from Dixon's Moon Knight run), the Secret Empire, Thunderball, an evil cyborg nurse and the Seekers (who just happened to be created by the editor... hmmm...). It should have been a fun adventure in the Marvel Team-Up style but it didn't quite work out that way due to some pretty wince-worthy dialogue (every time Night Thrasher says "partner" or "teammate," take a shot). Okay, Peter and MJ's exchange about "Spidey action" was cute.

Yeah, there are some classic bad lines in that story.

"Midnight, huh? Well . . . don't have a stroke!"

For the record, when you need a character to explain the joke and indicate that it's funny--which Midnight does following this line--it's not.
