Avengers 2 Week! Black and White Wednesday: "Vision, This Is Your Life!" and more by Klorese, Kraft, and friends

One of Teen Groove's all-time fave issues of FOOM Magazine was ish #12's spotlight on The Vision and Scarlet Witch. Yeah, Marvel's oddest Odd Couple was that popular back in the mid-70s. Roger Klorese, David Anthony Kraft, and others filled FOOM #12 with suh-weet historical articles plus interviews by the main Groovy Age Avengers writers Roy Thomas and Steve Englehart. Filled with art by many of Marvel's Finest, these articles captured all that was great about our Android Avenger and his Mutant Mrs. Dig it, Groove-ophiles!


  1. I always regret never having read any FOOM; it's the kind of stuff I would have eaten up back then.
    The Visage strip is also really cute.

  2. My buddy subscribed to FOOM. I "borrowed" his copies... still have a bunch in a box. Should I return them, after 40 years??? I mean, it's not like I lost sleep over it, since he "borrowed" my Iron Man issues like 47, 48, 49... Dear Groove - thanks for reminding me of this. Now I am mad as heck at my former buddy again. Geeze. And I thought it was going to be a smooth Wednesday.

  3. Somehow I'm more interested in seeing the Vision rather than Ultron in the Avengers movie!
