Journey into Mystery #98a (v1) : In the time it took for the doctor to die from a snake bite, the Cobra figure out his powers, crafted a villain costume, created a ton of weapons, and commandeered a plane?

Thor can lift buildings but can't get out of a rope?

This is about the fourth or fifth time that a character has changed to his alter ego to get out of binding. How about a new idea once in a while Stan?

I like the Cobra, but he doesn't seem like an appropriate villain for Thor. Maybe Spider-Man. Or Cap or Daredevil later on.

Amazing Spider-Man #6 (v1) : Again with the "as if it were cardboard" simile. There are other light-weight, fragile things out there Stan.

What I learned:
Dinosaurs were bulletproof and could crush a present-day tank.
The US is littered with old, abandoned castles and Spanish forts.

I've always loved the Lizard, bu this story is a little too hokey. It's probably the weakest Spidey story so far in my opinion.

On a non-Spidey note--looking through the ads in the old issues...I never realized how popular stamp collecting apparently was int he 60s. Life must have been pretty boring back then. No wonder these cheesy stories floored everyone.

Journey into Mystery #93 (v1) : Dr. Blake's dilemma with Mjolnir at the bottom of the river was surprisingly effective ... the frail man must dive, risking death in an all-or-nothing gambit with the fate of the world at stake ... a real stand-out moment in an otherwise blah issue.

Tales to Astonish #49 (v1) : And it's uncharacteristic for these books to be contradictory. hahaha

Also, is Christian Dior the only fashion designer that Stan knows? This is, I think, the fourth issue that has mentioned him in reference to clothing. Stan seems to find ideas, comparisons, and metaphors and use them over and over. And over.

X-Men #2 (v1) : Vanisher: My vote for the worst costume in the Marvel Universe thus far.

First Prof. X can fly a plane mentally, with telepathy (?). Now he can project movies on a wall mentally?

At what point does Henry McCoy become a genius, because he seems dumber than Ben Grimm so far.

"Call the cops! Even jail would be better than those corny puns of yours!" Couldn't agree more Stan.

Tales to Astonish #49 (v1) : I have never been able to understand the reasoning behind what happens to Pym when he changes size....it is really contradictory at times.

Tales to Astonish #49 (v1) : It's a little green Ben Franklin! haha

Why would Pym's reflexes be "sharper than ever" when he's big? And shouldn't he have normal strength since he does as Ant-Man?

Tales of Suspense #47 (v1) : Interesting to finally see that the Melter dissolves iron rather than melting it. It always bugged me that Tony could have liquid iron on him skin and not get burned.

Strange Tales #114a (v1) : Wish they hadn't used the whole "don't give away the twist ending" angle. For one thing, Stevie Wonder could have seen it coming, and two, it took away any potential element of surprise.

Never realized that silver age "Cap" made an appearance before Avengers 4.

Tales to Astonish #47 (v1) : Took 80 issues for a black person, any black person (other than natives) to appear in the Marvel Universe. And of course he's a jazz musician. haha

Tales to Astonish #48 (v1) : I agree with both of you. Lame costume, but I've always liked Porky for some reason. Not sure I like him being able to fly though.

Man, Pym's got a huge guest room behind his lab.

I can suspend disbelief enough to accept Ant-Man communicating with the ants and giving them orders, but now they're intelligent and carrying on conversations with Wasp?

Wasp is the best female character in the Marvel stable up to this point, and still one of the best to this day in my opinion.

Maybe Janet should try being forward and letting Henry know how she feels. haha

thomassp74 Says:
Journey into Mystery #97a (v1) : Main story didn't do a lot for me, but I liked the Tales of Asgard segment. Stan is much better at narration than dialog, and it introduced several future characters from the Thor universe such as Ymir and Surtur. I wonder how much of this is from mythology and how much is just Marvel?

Fantastic Four #14 (v1) : In this issue, they make a point of the Puppet Master donning a lead suit when he carves his radioactive clay, and treating his poppets with lead paint, all ostensibly to protect himself from the dangers of radiation. He even dons the lead suit when he has to quickly create a doll to save himself from an attacking octopus.
This is the first instance, 51 issues into the order, that I can recall of radioactivity being shown to have harmful effects, and even then he never explicitly says why he wears the lead suit; we are left to infer it. Perhaps the people of the 60s were finally starting to get it. Now if they would only stop smothering poor Johnny in asbestos.

Fantastic Four #1a Annual : Yep, it really has grown that fast.

Also, at least in the early issues, what the torch can't do is - be interesting.

Fantastic Four #1a Annual : Thing: "This is like a corny scene from some old Frankenstein movie!" Stan seems to be in on the joke. I'm also liking the way he makes characters joke about Reed and Pym and such always making speeches, explaining what they're doing.

So far, this is the best FF or Namor story I've read. My favorite Kirby art thus far too.

Two billion people in 1963? Has the earth's population really almost tripled in less than fifty years?

A flaming stethoscope? Is there anything Torch can't do? ;)

Fantastic Four #60 (v1) : Gotta agree with imeco. There was a lot of build up to a weak ending. Kinda like ol' Stan suddenly just got tired of writing and ended it.

Strange Tales #112 (v1) : At this point do they really need an editor's note to tell the readers that Sue is the Invisible Girl and a member of the FF?

Seems like Stan is already recycling ideas...media personality blasting Torch? Can you say JJJ and Spidey?

Crazy thing is the guy's right. Torch is a glory hound.

"The atomic pile will explode a split-instant from now" so I'll continue talking for six lines of dialog.

Amazing Spider-Man #5 (v1) : I agree, Shark. I still think that Doom is Marvel's best villain.

Spider-wave transmitter. haha One of my favorite things about the Spidey stories so far is that he's not fighting throwaway villains like the other heroes have been. Every issue has had a keeper.

Strange Tales #158a (v1) : I wonder why they found it necessary to start having Strange's incantations rhyme. I find it adds an element of sillyness to some otherwise good storytelling.

Amazing Spider-Man #4 (v1) : For Sale Shoe Laces 10 cents. So dramatic. haha

Spider-Man is easily the premiere book at this point. Stan's storytelling seems to be a bit better with this title. I like using the news report to give the background on Sandman. Before, the characters would talk to themselves and tell themselves their own history.

If he's "no cotton-pickin' seamstress," who sewed the costume in the first place?

I know it would limit the drama, but if I were Parker, I would have sold my pix to a rival newspaper.

Fantastic Four #18 (v1) : Always thought the Super Skrull should be one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe.

Beaming power rays? Finally the Pogo plane does more than show up in Baxter Building schematics.

Yet another invisible trip. Holy creativity Batman!

Strange Tales #157a (v1) : The infamous "Plan K-11" rears its head here. And "The Fantastic Hallucination Cube?" I think a certain author was heavily partaking in some "60s lifestyle" at the time, eh?
