The Incredible Hulk and the Ultimate Weapon! (Hostess Ads #1)
Not to be confused with The Thing and the Ultimate Weapon!.
|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. First up is: The Incredible Hulk and the Ulitmate Weapon! As noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page:
Contracted to build an ultimate weapon, this pair of scientists were unable to halt the out-of-control machine. Tearing the tank-like creation to pieces, Hulk watched from the sides as the designers and bystanders celebrated with Hostess Fruit Pies.
