THOR #374 has a Thor moment that might not be awesome or whatever, but I still think it pretty cool. Mainly because how Thor reacts to some very bad news. Guest-starring Angel, Cyclops and Marvel Girl!

We've wondered about Jean Grey's telepathic ethics. So here's another example of her using her telepathy in a way that is ethically questionable.

Spectacular Spider-Man #197, 198 and the first few pages of #199 are a team-up of Spider-Man and the original X-Men. Some time ago, Professor Aaron Power wanted Charles Xavier to restore his son, Matthew. Things did not go well.

Making Falcon partners with Captain America was a good idea. Trying to discuss race relations in a superhero comic in the 1970s was also a good idea. Yet, the same thing happened to Falcon *and* Sam Wilson a lot: An African-American character would call him a "sellout" and other nasty names.


Did anyone read that Harriet Beecher Stowe novel? )

When last we left Jessica Drew she had either accidentally killed her first love after leaving the high evolutionary, or awoken from an 11 year coma, and confronted by General Wyndam. Six of one half a dozen of another I guess. Now it is time to learn how she joined Hydra and found love with her fellow operative Jared.

2 Pages of Marvel Spotlight #32, 7 Pages, 2 panels of Origins #2.

Hi folks!

Captain America has fought many enemies over the years, and a surprising number of them have also been "Captain America." These twisted reflections of our hero represent America's fear that we aren't who we want to be, the best of the America spirit. Instead, they are distorted by hatred and greed, the America we do not want to be.

This is the story of one such man, Fifties Cap. This story is from Captain America #155 in 1972; six pages of twenty.

Hi folks, let's go back to 1974 and the country of Vietnam. A country that had seen far too much war, and was about to see more.

"Wait," you say, "The Slasher? Who he?" He's also known as Buzzsaw and Razorblade, and this is his debut appearance. Six pages of eighteen in Avengers #130.

The Reality Problem! )

Interesting trivia: Bill Mantlo did the colors for this issue.

Hi folks!

Back in the day, Marvel Comics had a "no late shipping" rule. If it looked like a writer or artist wasn't going to get their work in by deadline, the editor would slip in a filler story prepared in advance. Some of them were good, others not so much.

I'll let you decide which one this is. Six pages of eighteen, plus a treat.

Here's another classic gem from Bill Mantlo's run in The Incredible Hulk, which saw Bruce Banner for the first time taking control of the Hulk's body and power. It was the start of a new age for the green goliath and has influenced every custodian of the character ever since.

In the previous issue, we were introduced to the new Red Guardian, Arthur Nagan was an asshole, Chondu got a makeover, and Valkyrie got arrested.

So now it's time for the final chapter of the Nighthawk's Brain saga, The Defenders #36.

Five pages of seventeen, and an ad.

A Garden of Earthly Demise )

Your thoughts and comments, especially as this is the end of the post series?

Next time--something that isn't Seventies Marvel.
