Captain Marvel in Killer Bee and Son! (Hostess Ads #54)
|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: Captain Marvel in Killer Bee and Son! As noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page:
Led by the royal family of King, Queen, and Baby Bee Bee, the Killer Bee Family sought to gather the flowers of Earth for their own. Stuffing the botanical garden flowers with Hostess Twinkies, Captain Marvel convinced the drones to head home with the treats, while the royal family ended up imprisoned on Earth.
