Couple of great panels from Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man #64 (1984). Written by Bill Mantlo, art by Ed Hannigan & Jim Mooney.
(I love the way Hannigan & Mooney draw the long shots of characters in this issue, like these Spideys and Cloak and Dagger, whose first appearances are in this issue.)

Back Off Creeps, He’s Sensitive!
You’ve got to feel for poor Sensitive Klegg, he saved the life of ‘Wally Squad's finest, helped prevent the assassinations of countless other undercover Judges, as well as having a major hand - or claw - in averting the annihilation of Mega-City One from evil corporation, Overdrive Inc., by destroying their God-City, Luna-2.
Although he received a commendation for his bravery from Mega-City One, settling in the city has proved more problematic. Universally hated and feared from a frankly ungrateful populace, it seems the Big Meg is just not ready to accept the ten-foot man-crocodile, from a race of genocidal alien mercenaries!
Unsuccesful attempts at employment, and speed-dating, whilst dodging intermittently ‘accidental’ falling pieces of heavy furniture, have left Sensitive Klegg feeling decidely disillusioned and unwanted.
In the depths of despair our lonely soul, retires to his cramped, but empty apartment, and with a single crocodile tear sliding down his scaly face, removes his necktie, loops it over a ceiling beam and prepares to end his miserable existence..
However, fate intervenes when his vid-phone buzzes, could this be someone reaching out to him, offering employment opportunities or perhaps a new friendship?
Alas, no, in a twisted act of irony - it is in fact a message from the notorious Hunter’s Club Of Mega-City One, and Sensitive Klegg has been chosen as their next victim! Before the Klegg can even react, he is thrown across the room by a blast, landing in a heap of twisted metal…
