The Incredible Hulk vs. The Roller Disco Devils! (Hostess Ads #111)

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,Archie, and Gold Key/Whitman characters as well!) 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 Incredible Hulk vs. The Roller Disco Devils! As noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page:

Skating around town with a blaring boombox and snide attitude, the Disco Devils were keeping citizens frightened in their homes. Disliking their loud music, Hulk used the city street to roll up the entire crew. His reward was Hostess Fruit Pies.

You have me nodding my head and snarling, with hand gestures in response to the lyrics (and music). Love it. (although KC kinda had the same reaction...)
