Notes Reprinted issues:

2nd story: Avengers Vol 1 #11, December, 1964; "The Mighty Avengers Meet Spider-Man!"

Iron Man appears on the cover of this issue, but not in Story #2 which features Spider-Man.
Great controversy as to the cover credits to this issue. This editor (as well as George Olshevsky of Marvel Comic Index fame) gives credit to Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers. However, it is highly probable that Steve Ditko did the image of Spider-Man for the cover.
