Mere days ago, the world's 38th best blog about comics looked at what our favourite Marvel heroes were up to exactly fifty years ago. Now to see what they were up to precisely ten years later.
No doubt those intervening years brought greater maturity and an increased willingness to sort out problems by negotiation rather than fisticuffs.
Conan continues his team-up with Elric.
I still don't think it was a combination that really worked but the forces of evil had still better watch out.
Spider-Man comes to the rescue of Flash Thompson whose Vietnam past catches up with him.
It's OK but, on reflection, it's probably my least favourite story from the first ten years of Spider-Man's history.

I've no idea what happens in this one but I do love its Gil Kane cover.

I still think she should've been shown totalling Pluto though.

I've decided Hela's real name is Julie.
I have no reason for this.
