See Amazing Spider-Man issue 1! Is this a mistake by the letterer or was Stan Lee still undecided on Peter's name?  Read the green word bubbles carefully. ALSO: Pick up a free digital copy of this issue in Marvel's digital comic selection at Marvel.com!

I found the mistake in a digital copy FROM the Marvel website, so unless one of the employees is playing a joke I don't think it's a mistake. Download the free issue from Marvel and go to the second story in #1 "Spider-Man versus the Chameleon" on the second page. Or perhaps check your reprint ?  :)

I think some of the originals did have this mistake in them (this isn't the first time I've heard of it). Stan Lee kinda sucked at remembering names, so I believe it.

There might have been 2 prints, the first being incorrect and the second printing corrected the mistake. I will literally scan my kindle to show you. Hold on...

@Mycroftian: stan lee is known for naming his character a la PP(peter parker), BB(bruce banner). so its easy to remember. i doubt he would forget their names.

That's a legit error in the original print. When I worked at a comic store in the 90's my boss showed it to me.

When they restored it they must have corrected a few things as well.

In the original they made this mistake, in reprints they corrected it.

Similarly, in ASM #3 Dr Octopus calls Spider-man 'Superman' at one point.

This is why i HATE the digital switch. ITS RUINING the print ways. Soon everyone will switch to this crap. I will always stay loyal to the good ol' print copies. I  buy at New england comics. Not on some Stinking Iphone or Ipad. This generation is doomed...

@skyfire The issue you are looking for is # 3 page 11 In which Dr. Octopus calls Spiderman Super-Man in panel 6

(I own the entire siderman collection from Amazing Fantasy to issue 700)

I have read the issue again and everytime he is mentioned Peter Palmer appears. So in his first appearance the Chamaleon didn't fought Peter Parker, he fought Peter Palmer.

I found this in Superior Spider-Man #9 when Otto was doing the mind-wipe. Just look at the red oval I made. 'Palmer' is mentioned. Interesting.
