As all lovers of plots to blow up Parliament know, in but three days from now, it's Bonfire Night.
But were our favourite Marvel heroes of exactly fifty years ago likewise setting the world ablaze?

The Space Phantom makes his debut and promptly takes advantage of the average Marvel hero's desire to punch other Marvel heroes in the bracket.
And the Molecule Man also makes his debut.
I've never liked the Molecule Man. It's something about that zig-zaggy face that puts me off.

The X-Men hit their second issue, with a foe of whom I must admit to knowing next to nothing.
But am I right in thinking that three of this month's villains have the power to teleport?
