I'm starting college again Monday, so will likely have less time to spend on Scans Daily. Therefore, now is the time to make an extra-large post.Given my own proclivities, I'm sure you're not surprised it's a Superman comic. To be precise, Action Comics #500.



We'll have a glorious 21 pages of a 64 page story, a time capsule of what Superman was like in 1979.

What with many of us getting misty-eyed over the loss of the Superman-Lois Lane marriage, I thought I'd present a story that many of you (especially the young'uns) might never have seen.

Back in the day, Superman was so popular that not only did he have two titles (three if you count Superboy) but his girlfriend Lois Lane and pal Jimmy Olsen had their own spotlight series as well. Eventually, however, sales on these ancillary titles dropped enough that DC decided to merge them along with some other characters into one big book entitled "Superman Family."

It kept the numbering of "Jimmy Olsen" , and eventually reached #200. As a celebration of this milestone, the magazine had an extra-long imaginary story, depicting the future marriage anniversary of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.



I've tried to stick as closely as possible to the 1/3rd rule, so extreme choppiness ahead.

In the far-distant future of 2000 AD, forty-year old women wear hot pants unironically. )

Next time, more public domain!

From AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #176, Peter Parker wakes up after a fight with the Punisher and the Hitman resulted in a bullet wound in his arm.

Amazing Spider-Man V1 #176 - Page 5

Peter has healing powers, meaning he rarely has to explain any bruises from his tussles with bad guys. But is it really "I just need a good night's sleep to heal from a bullet wound" level?

Landlady Mrs. Muggins was a somewhat important supporting character from AMAZING #139 (when Peter moved into her Chelsea building) to AMAZING #300 (when Peter and Mary Jane moved out). She often griped how Peter was late with his rent, his odd hours, and the occasional super-villain attack.

In a previous post, we looked at the June Moone Enchantress' origin, in which she was basically a Sailor Moon type magical girl warrior in 1966, some decades before Naoko Takeuchi came up with the concept. Sadly, DC failed to realize what a cash cow this idea could turn into, and after three short stories, sent the character into limbo. So, how did the Enchantress go from magical girl to the insane witch we see in Justice League Dark? Here's the first step in that process.



Four pages of twelve from the lead story in Superman Family #204 (December 1980).

I don't know if it is Shanna Week or not, here are some pages that show Shanna vs. Nekra. Nekra would later become an Avengers villain. This is the 1970a SHANNA THE SHE-DEVIL #4.



You know Straw Men? Nekra takes that literally.

The angrier Nekra gets.... )

I knew I'd read this once before some time ago, I just couldn't recall where. Finally I found it again.

Ever wonder why Jason has such an issue with drug dealers selling to children and/or allowing children to sell drugs?

It's personal.

Two pages from Batman 646, one from Batman 408 and one from Batman 409.



Ickle Jason! under the cut... )

As a group of colorful fellows come gunning for Iron Man and Spider-Man, Spidey provides a lecture in fight etiquette. With helpfully numbered subheadings.

You'll shoot your eye out, kid!

There were a few notable DC characters who didn't get to be Black Lanterns--one of them was Pa Kent. So let's go back in time, to a story where Pa Kent rises from the grave for one last visit to his son.

And promptly meddles in Superman's love life. )

No, not the Nightwing villain, this is the D-list villain (Well, given the status of Nightwing's Shrike, possibly better to classify her as ANOTHER D-list villain called Shrike).

A former member of a one shot villain team called the Cadre, whose claim to fame was they were the first villain team created to fight the Detroit JLA (if claim to fame is the right turn of phrase for that)

So today (in America; it still counts!) is the fifth anniversary of my first post to the community! I guess that makes it my scansiversary? I considering doing a reprise of that very same entry, but those scans are either a) stuff I'm no longer into or b) have been reposted multiple times. Instead I thought I'd scavenge a couple of my favorite bits from my 1.0 Mary Jane series, oh so long ago.

Behind the cut, Mary Jane and Peter's first kiss as a serious couple, way back in Conway and Andru's Amazing Spider-Man #143. Also, answers to two questions you didn't know you wanted to know about their relationship: Why does Mary Jane call Peter "tiger?" and What's Peter and MJ's song?
