Green Lantern vs Triclops Three-Eyed Keeper of the Cave (Hostess Ads #20)

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: Green Lantern vs Triclops Three-Eyed Keeper of the Cave. As noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page:

With his Power Ring on empty, Green Lantern was forced into hand-to-hand combat with the bestial, three-eyed Triclops - seeking to make GL his latest meal. Luckily, nearby explorers were able to curb the beast's hunger with Hostess Twinkies, ending the threat.

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: I did think it was funny, especially coming from a typical comic monster that you wouldn't expect such wit from (I know, I know- stereotyping). I like Green Lantern and Sinestro though...just not the rest of that Rainbow Corps. I mean jeesh, dress 'em all like the Rainbow Raider and Doctor Spectro and get it over with. :P
