Thanks to the Steve Does Comics' time machine, we've already seen what our favourite Marvel heroes were up to fifty years ago this month, but just what were they up to ten years later?
Obviously they were all ten years older and had therefore, no doubt, learned to be calmer, less ready to use their fists, and to sort things out by reason and logic.
Nope. They were still hitting anything that couldn't run away fast enough.
Spider-Man finds himself having to deal with both the Lizard and Morbius.
Still, at least he turned up well-armed.
It's the Avengers vs a herd of cows, and Ant-Man vs the Vision's tonsils, as Neal Adams arrives and the Kree/Skrull War steps up a gear.
For the first time in living memory, a Captain America cover doesn't feature the Grey Gargoyle. Instead it features a mystery villain.
Could it be the Red Skull?
Could it be Baron Zemo?
Could it be Irving Forbush?
I'm assuming from the cover that this is where Barry Smith and Roy Thomas give us their adaptation of Robert E Howard's Rogues in the House.
I seem to recall that the sorcerer in this has a living-room lined entirely with mirrors. If only I had a living-room lined entirely with mirrors, so I could look at myself all day long and appreciate my beauty as others can.
I read this a couple of years ago, after acquiring a pile of old Daredevil comics. I should therefore be able to tell you exactly what happens in it.
I don't have a clue what happens in it.
Hooray! First he wins our poll to find the greatest ever Fantastic Four villain and now Dr Doom takes over leadership of the FF as they look to take on the latest threat to mankind.
I also read this a couple of years ago and believe the villain to be the Over-Mind. Or was it the Stranger? Or was it both?
The Hulk takes on a giant statue and a bunch of Ancient Egyptian gods.
Bah! Puny gods have no chance against Hulk!
Iron Man tangles with someone called Mikas.
I know nothing about Mikas but assume, from his implied MO, that he has something to do with the villainess of last month's story.
It's Thor and the Silver Surfer vs Durok the Demolisher.
I love this story. Not being a great fan of the Surfer and his endless whingeing, I love that his surfboard gets smashed.
Was Durok ever seen again? I hope so.
