Ok, how about this for an idea.  We take it in turns to post a favourite (British spelling) comic cover every day.  This went really well on the comic fan website that I used to frequent.  What we tried to do was find a theme or subject and follow that, until we all got bored with that theme.  I'd like to propose a theme of letters of the alphabet. So, for the remainder of October (only 5 days) and all of November, we post comic cover pictures associated with the letter "A".  Then in December, we post covers pertaining to the letter "B".  The association to the letter can be as tenuous as you want it to be. For example I could post a cover from "Adventure Comics" or "Amazing Spider Man".  However Spider Man covers can also be posted when we're on the letter "S".  Adventure Comic covers could also be posted when we're on the letter "L" if they depict the Legion of Super Heroes.  So, no real hard, fast rules - in fact the cleverer the interpretation of the letter, the better, as far as I'm concerned.

And it's not written in stone that we have to post a cover every day. There may be some days when no cover gets posted. There's nothing wrong with this, it just demonstrates that we all have lives to lead.

If everyone's in agreement I'd like to kick this off with one of my favourite Action Comic covers, from January 1967. Curt Swan really excelled himself here.

...and his first appearance.

The Outlaw Kid first appeared in Atlas Comics from 1954 to 1957, with covers usually drawn by Joe Maneely.  When Marvel began reprinting the series in The Outlaw Kid vol. 2, #1–30 (Aug. 1970 – Oct. 1975), it became the best-selling among the company's Western reprints.

She pronounces "said" as "sed," unlike the rest of us. 

Outlaw Kid is another from my list! (I had planned to post Orka, too.) I had better paste Orrgo before someone beats me to it.

I had Orrgo from ST #90 on my list. They had him return to battle the Defenders?

I had a feeling he was on someone's list. They had Orrgo return in Avengers Standoff "Omega 001", too (which is both an "Orrgo" and an "Omega").

How the Mighty Unconquerable Have Fallen!

Is his name supposed to strike terror into the hearts of students struggling in Organic Chemistry courses?

Another Orrgo cover (although not the variant I was looking for).

Ah. This is the one I was looking for.

An insane Brainiac 5 creates Omega the embodiment of hatred to destroy the universe. An unlikely hero stops him!
