September 1972 will always be a special month for me. Why? Because that's when I first started reading super-hero comics.
But will it prove to be as special for our favourite Marvel heroes?
Clearly not. It's only just started and Spidey's already fed up of it all.
The Avengers take on the Sentinels in a story-line that ultimately leads to the marriage of Crystal and Quicksilver. Boo, those Sentinels have a lot to answer for.
First Spidey cops out and now Cap and Falc fall out. Is there to be no end to the discord this month can generate?
A monster. A temple. A damsel in distress. There must be times when Conan feels he's living through groundhog day.
I always liked Mr Fear. But then I'm a sucker for any villain with a skull face.
Is this the one that retells the FF's origin?
I seem to recall this cover being reproduced in one of Marvel UK's 1970s annuals, with Agatha Harkness added.
It's another of my faves as the Hulk finds himself up against a would-be Nazi superman.
Is this what Iron Man's reduced to? Struggling to survive an encounter with a refugee from the Circus of Crime? Clearly the Invincible Iron Man is feeling distinctly vincible lately.
Is this the one where Ego Prime creates a new race of gods as part of some baffling Odin master plan?
Knowing the usual quality of Odin's master plans, it's a miracle the entire universe didn't end up destroyed.
