Nostalgically revisiting the comics of the 1980s since 2008.
Hi there, Can't place a few characters on that cover:Of the three guys above Black Bolt, I recognise the original Blizzard in the centre, the other two, I don't know.The hairy guy above the Blob.The guy in the cape below Cap's crotch (!!), and the tribal-looking guy with the Pepe le Pew haircut below him. Also, I am assuming, based on the information on the cover, that the multiple identical characters in Soviet-styled costumes are the Collective Man (a name hinting at his powers and also a pun on a Soviet collective farm)?
Above Black Bolt, the electric guy is Blitzkrieg from Contest of champions. The other guy is the Blue Shield.Hairy guy is Blastaar, FF foe.Cape guy= the Black Knight.Pepe le Pew is Brother Voodoo.Yes, Collective man was from Contest of Champions, too.starfoxxx
Man I loved this series when I was a kid, and the one that followed it with the John Byrne covers. I didn't care for the 90s one with the binder and the standard poses for everyone...ugleeee! Makes me feel old to think that Cannonball was a new character when this came out. The Black Widow in silver-grey...always thought that was an odd choice.
Collective Man was from China. Pretty obscure for 20-plus years, he showed up in X-men books in the 2000s.starfoxxx
