Title: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN#278 by Tom DeFalco (writer) and
Ron Frenz (artist)
Synopsis: A psychiatrist who is new visits the Fly's cell,
only to learn
the Fly had just escaped. Later, Fly finishes eating some garbage and
starts to fly off. A garbage man with a strong resemblance to the
psychiatrist shoots the Fly and declares, "Justice is Served!"
Is this a key part of the overall Scourge story? No
Does This tie into the main story in this issue? No. The main
story dealt with
Spider-Man battling the Hobgoblin.
Comments: the garbage bit is a nod to the Fly's previous
humor story drawn by Fred Hembeck in Spectacular Spider-Man where the Fly
gains a taste for the finer cuisance of trash.
Most likely the Fly's eyes could have picked up Scourge, but
his mind was probably on other matters.
