I was reading some old Marvel Two-in-Ones earlier this weekend. They were from 1980 and I also read the letters pages. In one issue, a fan complained about characters coming back from the dead (in this case, Spider-Man villain Electro). In another, a fan complained about a heavilly-promoted event that didn't live up to the hype (in this case, Project Pegasus). Some things never change.

That fan knew nothing! Project Pegasus was spiffy!
Project Pegasus was a great story - and all in one title.
I must've missed the hype for Project Pegasus. My DC upbringing, I guess.
I was a Marvel lad and they did make a big deal of it at the time. Maybe something to do with the writers being so close to editorial then?

But it was a great way to bring together a lot of disparate characters who otherwise wouldn't have much to do with each other. A real boon if you happen to be writing Marvel Two-in-One month in month out.

I loved it then and I even bought the TPB years later.
