Marvel finally dropped the gauntlet and brought back Assistant Editor’s Month. And it only took 25 years!
If, like me, you were around the first time, you’ll probably recall some memorable departures as the lunatics ran the asylum. Among my favorites:
The Avengers on Letterman (issue #239)!
Aunt May becomes a Herald of Galactus!
And, oddly enough, G.I. Joe #19. Not odd because I liked G.I. Joe, but odd because in a month of completely non-serious issues, the Joes had their most brutal conflict with Cobra to that point. Not only was the surface of their HQ The PITT destroyed, their allies General Flagg and mercenary Kwinn were killed. Cobra also lost trooper Scarface and scientist Dr. Venom.
How about you? Any favorites from that crazy month in ’84?
