The Fantastic Four in "Wonders of Nature" (Hostess Ads #30)
|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: The Fantastic Four in "Wonders of Nature." As there was no villain in this story, there's nothing noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page.
In this ad, the FF have gone canoeing, and are enjoying the trip, when a rockslide threatens to capsize them. The team utilizes their powers to protect themselves from the falling rocks, and not a single fruit pie was lost.
