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.

I wonder if other heroes have used similar-sounding names?

I picked a different Wonder Wart-Hog cover

Here's someone who should be turning up in the next phase of the MCU:

Wonder Boy

Wonder Chick Girl! 

John Wayne's most infamous role - - Genghis Khan!

Pushing Wendy Harris, Marvin White and Wonder Dog out their way comes the Wonder Twins!!

Definitely a Hallowe'en connection with the letter 'W'! It's a pity 'W' appeared in September rather than October.  Never mind - here's Web Of Mystery #26, featuring the Strangling Witch.  Publisher Ace Magazines, Sept 1954, cover artist uncredited.

Nothing to do with Hallowe'en but Perry WHITE played a large part in Clark's early career. Neither Perry nor Clark cared for his desk much.

The Wondrous Worlds of Doctor Strange(who, oddly, isn't on the cover)

No flame wars. No trolls. But a lot of really smart people.The Captain Comics Round Table tries to be the friendliest and most accurate comics website on the Internet.
