Never cared too much about Marvel superheroes when I was growing up, but back then, no one read Marvel (you could stump people in a trivia contest by asking "Peter Parker was what superhero?") and you were more likely to find Charlton Comics* on the newstands. They're adventures were too mundane and soap-opera-ish and I didn't care much for Jack Kirby's art (though I have learned to appreciate it).

If I were to name one, it'd be The Mighty Thor. The Norse mythology grew very dull very fast.

*Every one of which was completely uninteresting to me. Magnus, Robot Fighter seemed particularly stupid, since he was constantly punching out robots with his fists.
"If a person saying he was something was all there was to it, this country'd be full of rich men and good-looking women. Too bad it isn't that easy.... In short, when someone else says you're a writer, that's when you're a writer... not before."
Purveyor of fine science fiction since 1982.
