The mighty octopus; the only creature on Earth so awesome it has a month named after it.
But what were our favourite Marvel heroes doing in the Month of the Octopus exactly fifty years ago?
Were they receiving a hearty kick in the tentacles?
Or were they busy making suckers of their enemies?
How little did Marvel know the wheels they were setting in motion when they introduced us to Wonder Man.
The Purple Man. Possibly the greatest super-villain name since Paste-Pot Pete.
It's the return of the Mole Man. If only it were Tyrannus.
Why is it never Tyrannus?
That rare thing, a fight between Thor and Magneto.
Good to see the rest of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants looking as enthusiastic as ever.
Is this the one that introduced the world to the Spider-Man Fan Club?
Subby shows up to try and introduce some drama into the adventures of the Thing and the Human Torch.
I wonder what the Dr Strange story was?
It's one of my favourite early Iron Man tales, as the Chameleon throws a star-spangled spanner in the works and pits Cap Am against the golden grappler.
The Hulk finally gets his own strip back.
Will Giant-Man be able to see off this challenge to his Tales to Astonish dominance?
Sadly, I fear we can all guess the answer to that one.
