Hostess: Spider-Man in Spider-Man in “Legal Eagle”
Originally published: November 1977

November 1977:
Conan the Barbarian #80, Howard the Duck #18, Defenders #53, Champions #16, Godzilla #4, Black Panther #6, Captain Marvel #53

December 1977:
Conan the Barbarian #81, Defenders #54, Howard the Duck #19, Eternals #18, What If #6, Godzilla #5

Hostess ad that appeared in November and December 1977 in the titles above, and most likely others.

Every part of this is weird. First, MJ is hanging out with Spider-Man — not Peter, Spidey. Also, they are hanging out in Washington, DC. They randomly stumble upon “Ralph G. Fake, the criminal laweyer with the power to change himself into Legal Eagle, the monster eagle” — as identified by MJ — stealing and attempting to destroy the Bill of Rights. After this he plans to take over the Supreme Court and the presidency! Spidey gets him by setting up a Hostess Cupcake trap, which Fake just cannot ignore. The whole thing was awesome!

I have no idea about the placement of this — I’ll have to keep an eye out for Spidey and MJ going to DC — but this doesn’t seem right.
