    Not a problem.

    At last, Boy Comics finally gets its own website!

    Ignore Scott. I'm pretty sure he's being an agent provocateur.
    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."
    Basically, if you miss the wonder of a dog flying around in a little Superman cape, you're in the wrong hobby.

    Nice catch there Tony.

    Edit : I just checked their live database and it now correctly shows MP # 7 as the character's first appearance.
    Bill Mantlo created a host of memorable characters in his years at Marvel, but Rocket was definitely one of the most memorable. It's a damn shame Bill's creative vision was taken from us in the way that it was, and that he isn't more highly regarded today.

It just seemed so silly and over the top and reminded me of a Superman Red Kryptonite story. To me, with the upcoming death of Gwen, years of Gerry Conway scripts and Ross Andru art, he would never again be my favorite comic character

    Scott wouldn't have to say anything that could be dangerous under any circumstance.

    Just out of curiosity, are we the same person? Are you one of my heretofore-unknown personalities, or am I one of yours?

    Hmmmm.

    (Except of course by then I'd not been following the title for about a year. When I read a friend's copy of that issue, though, I realized that that ship had not only sailed for me, it had sunk.)

    Speaking of Bill Mantlo and interesting characters from the '70s:



    Well, he was visually interesting, anyway.

    OK, I'll be the Nattering Nabob this time, and point out the Missile Men are one of Kanigher's 60s creations, appearing in METAL MEN #1 (1963).

    The MM did have a 70s series but it wasn't known for great villains. Anyone remember Vox?

    You're right-for some reason, I'd remembered the Warriors first appearing in 1980, which is why I left them out, but having checked, it was actually 1979. Good catch.

    I'm surprised nobody has brought up Rom who barely makes the cut having first appeared in December of 1979.
