Batman & Robin Birds of a Feather (Hostess Ads #9)
|On a site dedicated to making a wiki history of all things comics, comics ads should not be forgotten. Especially the ads for Hostess Fruit Pies, Twinkies, and other snacks. Starting in 1975, Marvel and DC heroes (and the Harvey characters!) spent seven years throwing Hostess snacks at a bizarre line of villains to stop their crimes. Although many of the villains were completely silly, they were created specifically for these ads, and in many cases, not even the names have been used again, since the ads stopped in mid-1982.|
So I thought I'd show an ad here, and make a list of the comics I find it in, as I run across them. This list features: Batman & Robin Birds of a Feather. As noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page:
Commanding an army of pigeons, the winged Pigeon Person sought to rob America of its national monuments. After escaping with the Statue of Liberty, Batman deduced her next move and set a trap of Hostess Cupcakes to distract the birds; Pigeon Person was netted and hauled off to prison.
