AAU Shuperstar Flattens His Arch Enemy...The Menacing Missile-Toe (Comic Ads #2)

Comic Ads are more than just the mountain of Hostess Ads we know and love. Over the years, many a company has used one page comic ads to shill their products in the pages of comic books! So I thought I'd do a list series that showcases those ads, and shows you what issues I've found them in. To me, these are as much a part of comics history as any superhero, and I love 'em for the nostalgia they bring. I hope they do the same for you. Enjoy.

As a kid, characters that don't quite make sense aggravated me a bit. I mean, how do shoes give you super powers? But then, go ask Hermes about his winged sandals I suppose, so this isn't completely without precedent. Still, a guy that fires missiles from the toes of his boots? Please, he'd just have a gun for those silly things. Of course, he couldn't call himself Missile-Toe then, but all the better.

Now though, I love these ads for their corny, pun-filled goodness. So I'm glad there was someone to protect our soles, bringing the agony of da feet to Missile-Toe. I still wonder why they didn't spell it "Shoeperstar" though.

Too...many...puns...can`t...stand it...

This is not Camp gold, but platinum.

It`s lazy to use the word sole three times to mean the same thing, though.

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: Hey! I'm not going to let you walk all over these ad guys like that! They were just trying to hammertoe their point home that this ad had do with shoes and feet! XD
