Marvel’s Decades Goes Totally 80s in April

Ah, the 1980s. A great decade for comics? Or the greatest decade? U-Decide!

Either way, in April, Marvel’s 80th-anniversary Decades celebration reaches the 80s, featuring some of the best comics stories every told by Chris Claremont, Chris Claremont, Chris Claremont, and a bunch of others too. See James Rhodes don the Iron Man armor in Iron Man #170, Mariko dump Wolverine on their wedding day in Uncanny X-Men #173, She-Hulk join the Fantastic Four in Fantastic Four #265, Spider-Man marry Mary Jane in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #21 and don the black suit on Earth after Secret Wars in Amazing Spider-Man #252, the Hulk turn grey again in Incredible Hulk #324, Loki act like a hero in Thor #378 (an X-Factor crossover), John Walker become Captain America in Captain America #333, and Warren Worthington become Archangel in X-Factor #24.

Okay, so maybe we just spoiled it all for you. But still, lots of great stories in a nice hardcover collection.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
