1977 "Superheroes Assemble" Marvel Comics Subscription Ad

What can I say? 1977 was a good year for Marvel subscription ads. Happy but dynamic Jazzy Johnny Romita Captain America! 70's icons Howard the Duck, Captain Marvel and Conan the Barbarian, the latter two playing a big part in my childhood. Spidey! Thor! Hulk! Human Torch! Iron Man! All iconic and ready for application on Slurpee cups, beach towels and the like. Even Daredevil, anticipating the noir cool of Frank Miller while remaining marketable! When did we lose our way? When did we decide the path to multi-media glory lay in giving Tin Head 30 bajillion different armors, Cap a gun, or the Odinson that lame ass black and silver armor? You're all bloody fools!!!
