Last Super Tuesday I showed you Hulk as a culture vulture. This week’s Hulk is closer to the original flavor, ripping up his shirt in the Rage Cage!
Good thing Hulk’s shirt is “velcrose” so we can put it back together! No word on whether or not The Thing’s shorts rip from his body when he bursts out of his “rock home.” (And here I thought he lived at the Baxter Building).
This was just one of many ads run by Heroes World in Marvel comics of the 1980s. Marvel would later purchase Heroes World and (in)famously make them the sole wholesale distributor for Marvel Comics, tossing a grenade into the comics distribution business, and consigning many comic shop owners to “rage cages” of their own.
