With Hostess going out of business, this seemed the appropriate time and place to ask these questions: Do you remember in the 1970s the series of ads Hostess ran in comic books featuring prominent superheroes who were aided in their fight against evil by Hostess snack cakes? Did you read these or avoid them? How effective do you think they were? About how many of these ads do you think ran? And most importantly, can we get a complete list of superheroes who were featured in these ads?
