Within but hours, those of us in the land they call Blighty will be celebrating the May Bank Holiday. But you won't catch our favourite Marvel heroes prancing round the Maypole. Good God no. Even fifty years ago today, they were too busy chinning the badly behaved.
The Fantastic Four show their ability to cause as many problems as they solve, by once more unleashing the Savage Sub-Mariner on the world.
He might not have known if he was a hero or a villain but, like all of the FF's early foes, he knew one thing - Sue Storm was put on this Earth to be kidnapped.
It's a moment to celebrate, as the Fantastic Four are suddenly no longer alone.
At last they have another super-hero to share their universe with when Bruce Banner gets himself blown up and the Incredible Hulk makes his debut in a tale filled with more than its fair share of the Russian spies who caused so much trouble in the Marvel Universe.
You can't blame Bruce Banner though. How could he possibly have known that his assistant Igor was secretly a Russian? It's not like there were any clues.
