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.

We're nearly at the end of the month so a couple of Hulks from me.

Since the Metal Men were a favorite of mine I thought I’d check to see if they fought any green robots, because we know the “bad guys” are secondary colors and the “good guys” are primary colors, which pretty much covers the Metal Men (except for Lead, and Tina).  If we weren’t at the end of the month, I’d space these out over a week (or two!), but here goes:  green robots versus the Metal Men.

How many villainous green robots can there be out there?

Egads, what if I include non- robots?

I’ll stop now.

Steve Ditko's cover of the last issue of the Hulk's original run

If we're going to go metal:

Mad Dr. Doom

"Lo, the Green Zeus Appears!"

Well, has anyone mentioned Brainiac yet?

Yes, I think that perhaps they have.  Instead, here's a couple of covers featuring miscellaneous green reptilian or amphibian creatures 

Isn't it strange that the Supreme Intelligence who leads the Kree who consider the blue race "purer" than the pink should be portrayed as green?

Plus he created the Supremor robots for actual mobility!
