Spider-Man! The Champ (Hostess Ads #15)
|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: Spider-Man! The Champ. As noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page:
When famed boxer Aldo Moomjay receives a threatening note from someone called "The Foe," Spider-Man decides to observe the heavyweight bout. Deducing that the referee was the culprit, Spidey stops the count with Hostess Cupcakes and prevents a sports faux pas.
