Hooray! It's October, the only month of the year named after Dr Octopus.
As we all know, magical things were happening fifty years ago this month, with the launch of the first James Bond film and the first Beatles single. Did Marvel manage to keep pace by furnishing us with milestones of equal epochnosity?
It's one of my early faves as the FF find themselves up against Kurrgo and the dreaded Planet X.
Thor might have spent too many of his early appearances battling commies but at last he meets a foe worthy of a smack in the teeth from his hammer.
I have to admit I've never read any of the Human Torch's solo adventures but I've always assumed they're not very good.
Still, I doubt my lack of support'll stop Johnny Storm from destroying the Destroyer.
Hold on a moment. The Destroyer? What's he doing wasting his time on the Human Torch when he should be off somewhere stopping Thanos?
Planet X? Comrade X? Marvel had more Xs than Elizabeth Taylor.
But Ant-Man again reminds us of the mighty super-hero he is, by being trapped in a prison made of glass.
