Egads! Can it be true? Barely has Christmas come and gone and already we're into the fifth month of the year!
That means it's time to find out how our plucky pugilists were faring in the only month ever to be named after a relative of Peter Parker.
Sadly, UncleBentember has yet to be officially sanctioned by the powers that be.
Needless to say, I insist on using it regardless. It's that month that comes between July and August. You know; that month.
Speaking of the man himself, Spider-Man continues his fledgling career by, erm, attacking old age pensioners - as first the Vulture and then the Terrible Tinkerer feel the back of his hand.
The local nursing home must live in mortal fear when he's around.
Ooh blimey, it's all getting a bit bondage-tastic, as the Sub-Mariner kidnaps Sue Storm yet again.
See how she struggles to escape her ropes.
Or possibly not.
To be honest, if Thor really can't reach that hammer in the space of a few seconds, when it's no more than six feet away from him, I despair of him.
That's why I've always preferred the majesty of Thordis. Thordis would've grabbed that hammer and bashed Loki over the back of the head with it before he'd even had chance to finish his boasting.
The Human Torch once more finds himself up against a top-notch foe.
No doubt he'll easel-ly beat him.
I do remember being frightfully confused by this tale as a child.
Just why did Stan Lee decide to have a villain called Dr Strange when he already had a hero called Dr Strange?
Little did I know then that the evil Dr Strange predated the good Dr Strange by a good two months.
I wonder if they've ever come up against each other?
If not, I demand they do so forthwith.
"The one power even Ant-Man was helpless against!"
Let's be honest, you'd be hard pressed to find a power Ant-Man isn't helpless against.
