"Very true, John. The only time he showed up again as the prime villain was in Luke Cage's mag to contest the right to the name Power Man, which Erik thoroughly lost. In this story, he doesn't seem so much thoroughly evil as too…"
"Even in this initial outing, Power Man was a stooge for the Enchantress, not really having any personal reasons to take on the Avengers. He had been, ahem, enchanted by Amora's charms. And next he showed up as a stooge for the Black…"
"As originally envisioned by Kirby & Simon in 1940 over a year prior to the Pearl Harbor, Steve Rogers tried to join the army because although the U.S. wasn't yet a direct combative in the war he figured it was just a matter of time and he…"
"One of my favorite ASM covers, probably because it's fairly unique, but Romita, Sr., did a standout job on all four in this set. I recently read Slugfest, an account of the 50 years (and counting) contest between DC & Marvel, and…"
"Had never heard of Manowar before but at least with the head, there is a very strong resemblance with the Silver Age Vision. If intentional, I wonder if that was at Thomas' direction or Buscema's idea."
"The Death Stalker, introduced a few issues earlier, better fit the bill in this era of DD, still a few years before the Kingpin would switch over from Amazing Spider-Man to become DD's top foe and even a bit before Bullseye was introduced. I…"
"In some of the very few stories I've read featuring the Jim Hammond Human Torch it seemed that whoever was writing them entirely forgot that H.T. was supposed to be an android!
Also in 1968, Captain America, Dr. Strange, Hulk, Iron Man…"
"I liked Omega the Unknown, although as with Howard the Duck I missed the first three issues. I had just turned 14 at about the time I got the 4th issues of both mags back in 1976 and by then I was already enamored of Steve Gerber's…"
"The Mighty Thor issue 147 is part of a long multi-epic story-line in which Thor ticked off big daddy Odin yet again was punished for the upteenth time by having his powers significantly reduced. As Loki still had his own godly strength, in…"
"Hmm, as far as I know the closest previous example was Happy Hogun and Pepper Potts, but they eloped off scene and were written out of the cast for a few years afterwards, so the marriage of Betty & Ned, particularly as a cover story, was a…"
"Certainly in concept, I never considered the Unicorn lame and when I first heard of him in the early '70s he seemed to have potential but in execution he was a pawn of the Mandarin with serious health issues and oddly Mandy & the Unicorn…"
"I strongly suspect that Stan didn't intend to have it appear that the Unicorn really knew that Iron Man and Tony Stark were one and the same but that is exactly what the dialogue indicates. I wonder if any astute readers at the time noted…"
"I wonder if the Newsboy Legion was that much popular than the Star Spangled Kid or just a matter of the head honchos of National at the time thinking featuring Kirby & Simon's work on the covers was a bigger draw or something else?"
"I recall reading that there was a deadline coming up on the original Human Torch (Jim Hammond) in 1966, prompting Lee to use him in that years FF Annual, much to the chagrin of the Torch's creator, Carl Burgos, who expected he would get rights…"
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( email@example.com) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
