I can think of nothing at all interesting to say to introduce this post. So, in a rare fit of succinctness, here's my look at what our favourite Marvel heroes were up to in the exact same month the Beatles first appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show.
That appearance got almost 73 million viewers - which, by an incredible coincidence, is exactly the same number of people I expect to comment on this post.
Sometimes, the synchronicities of life are just plain spooky.
Electro makes his shocking first appearance.
Dr Doom is back!
Is this the one with his Doom Ship?
For some reason, when I first read this tale in The Mighty World of Marvel, I misread, "Doom Ship," as, "Doom Shirt." I didn't have a clue what a doom shirt was but I knew I wanted one.
Zarrko the tomorrow man makes his debut.
Does this mean he made his first appearance before Kang? In which case, Kang is a Zarrko knock-off rather then the other way round? The things you learn when you trawl the depths of history.
Either way, you can read my review of Thor's next meeting with Zarrko, right here. Warning, it contains dinosaurs!
The Human Torch finds himself up against the deadly Eel, a foe so useless he couldn't even beat Daredevil when they met.
Worryingly for the Torch, references to Dr Strange are now starting to make the front cover...
Iron Man finally gets an arch-enemy, as the Mandarin makes his first appearance.
To be honest, Mandy could at least make the effort to stand up to fight his new, sworn foe. With apathy like that, it's no wonder he always used to lose.
Giant-Man and the wonderful Wasp find themselves up against the original Black Knight. To be honest, given his track record, I don't fancy Giant-Man's chances.
