Forbush-Man: Wedding Counselor!

This week’s F.O.O.M. Friday brings us a somewhat politically incorrect comic strip from F.O.O.M. #6.

Vision & Scarlet Witch

Vision & Scarlet Witch

Reading this strip at the tender age of twelve, I was for the first time made aware of the Scarlet Witch as a sexual being … which speaks volumes about the chaste way she was drawn in the Avengers back in 1974!

It is interesting to note that while a marriage between the Vision and the Scarlet Witch is played for laughs here, that very event would later mark a major Marvel storyline.

Anyone care to add last names to the the “Tony, Pat, Duffy and Paul & Alan K.” that are credited with creating this piece?

See you next week for another F.O.O.M. Friday!

  4. The creators of this strip are Tony Isabella, Paty (Greer-Cockrum), Duffy Vohland, Paul and Alan Kupperberg. Fans-on-the-verge-of-pro-dom way back then. Great piece/post!
