The Wolf Man was always my favorite of the classic movie monsters, so a character that merged a werewolf with a comic book hero/villain was an easy sell for me. I was also quite taken by the "Mark of the Man-Wolf" Spider-Man comic book and record set from Power Records that I listened to countless times as a kid. You would think that J. Jonah Jameson's son transforming into a super-powered creature would have softened his views against masked vigilantes, but it only strengthened his stance. I guess he wouldn't be the JJJ we all know and love if it were otherwise, though! I haven't seen Man-Wolf show up in the Spider-Man titles in years, and I hope that changes soon. He is one of Spidey's better under-used adversaries and I am sure there are more stories to tell featuring him.
