I read this in the wrong order, I should have read it immediately following FF Annual #3. I should have, though I wish I had never read it at all. This takes the already horrible story in that issue and makes it worse with a pointless, worthless update that is not only boring, but throws Phil Sheldon into the mix and makes me start to hate his character too. Yes, this is so bad that it actually started to ruin Marvels for me. My only hope is that enough time passes between now and when I read the next issue of Marvels that I forgot Heroes & Legends entirely.
And, after 30 years, has Stan Lee learned how to write for and about women yet? Has he become more sensitive to sexism and how women are portrayed in comics? You be the judge:
This issue gets the honour of being the first zero rating of this blog.
I refuse to waste my time tagging all the billions of heroes and villains that appeared in this trite shite.
