Bulletman, The Human Bullet Blasts Into the GI Joe Super Adventure Team (Comic Ads #11)
|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.|

Joe and Mike Power, Atomic Man, in order to compete with the Six Million Dollar Man figures, and Mego's Superhero Figures.

Whatever the case, it got us the great ad above, and this catchy earworm below:
I defy you not to be singing this to yourself an hour from now.
