The Hulk vs. The Phoomie Goonies (Hostess Ads #29)
|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 Hulk vs. The Phoomie Goonies. As noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page:
A group of revolutionaries, the self-titled Phoomie Goonies began their terrorist campaign by taking over a small town post office with Bruce Banner inside. As the transformed Hulk threatened to crush the villains, an offering of Hostess Fruit Pies allowed everyone to leave the building intact.
