There may be an election tomorrow but the Steve Does Comics focus is on far more important matters, as I take a look at what our favourite Marvel heroes were up to in this very month of fifty years ago.
Are they delivering an almighty great blow to the ballot box?
Or are they just getting a kick in the marginals?
Hooray! The new cabinet's confirmed, as our new prime minister unveils the bright young team who're going to lead us into the future.
It's one of my fave FF tales, as the Frightful Four go slightly overboard in their desire to defeat our heroes - and nuke them.
I'd love to know how the Frightfuls are managing to fit into that tiny ship without having first had the lower halves of their bodies amputated.
Odin once more shows what a total dolt he is, as he makes Thor and Loki battle it out to prove which of them is the more worthy.
Because that's such a difficult thing to decide otherwise.
Bearing in mind the man banging the gong behind them, I'd say it's Rank stupidity but that'd be stealing a joke from Carry On Cleo, which would be naughty as I've vowed to only steal jokes from Carry On Cowboy this week.

I got it from The Mighty World of Marvel.
I believe the wallpaper came from the local shops.
The Stranger makes his cosmos-shaking debut.
