Upcoming Ditko - Pet Avengers Classic

Yeah, I know. I don't make 'em up, I just report their existence.

The story from SPEEDBALL #6 is presumably "Cat's Eye". The MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #8 story, from the emphasis on squirrels, would be the Iron Man story "The Coming Of Squirrel Girl". Nothing from AMAZING FANTASY #15 seems to fit the theme, so I'm not sure why that's listed [turns out they mean the more recent Ditko-free AF v2 #15].

  1. Amazing Fantasy#15 refers to the 2nd series, not the original title.

  2. Ah, thanks. That explains it. I forgot there even was a second AF series.

  3. Yesh.

    Its not like Marvel has a real tradition of super pets, unlike DC with all Superman family pets and the Legion of Super Pets, etc.
