Get down the disco and cover yourself in glitter - because, in this week in 1976, Dancing Queen by ABBA hit the Number One slot on the British singles chart and cemented their position as the late 1970s' supreme musical force. Was there anyone not excited by this development?
Of course there wasn't!
But could the output of Marvel UK match it for epoch-making excitement?
I wonder what the Red Skull's trap of doom was?
Did it involve the Cosmic Cube? It always seemed to feature in his plans in this era of Marvel history.
Given its all-powerfulness, you do wonder why he never seemed to be able to win, even when he had it.

And you're going to impress no one down the disco, dancing to ABBA, with your eyeballs tied in knots.
It's another classic issue, as the Inhumans get involved in the Kree/Skrull War.

I believe the Thor story is the senses-shattering climax of the Infinity storyline.
I have a soft spot for any story that features Hela. I do feel it's impossible to insert a seven foot tall death goddess into a tale without improving it.
Speaking of things that could be improved upon, this appears to be the issue in which the Invaders invade the comic. I remember not welcoming this development with open arms at the time.
They definitely needed a seven foot tall death goddess to be let loose on them.
