Wonder Woman in "Old Gold" (Hostess Ads #86)
The Borrower first appeared in Wonder Woman in "The Borrower".
|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: Wonder Woman in "Old Gold." As noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page:
The Borrower made a return appearance, stealing purses and bags from members of an Egyptian tour group. [Somehow giving herself a golden appearance], Wonder Woman was able to lure the Borrower in with her Hostess Twinkies, and again thwart his crime spree.
