Super Hero Time!

Spider-Man and Battle Fever J are joined by Doraemon, Kamen Rider Stronger, Ultraman Jonias (“The Ultraman”) and Kamen Rider V3 for Superhero Time at Korakuen Amusement Park, circa 1979.

That's the way the post I submitted to the Marvel Age of Comics Tumblr was supposed to look. I didn't realize that HTML was not enabled on the submission screen. When Tom Brevoort published my submission, I am pretty sure I looked like this.

I am grateful to Tom for publishing my submission, and hopefully this entry will make up to Caleb Goellner (the person from whom I got the pic) for botching his link. Meanwhile, why don't you peep out this post of Popy action figures from Will McKenzie? I am pretty sure those are also from 1979, due to the presence of Battle Fever J, Ultraman Joe, and (most tellingly) Eagle Ken. Why do I mention Ken? Because he's branded as being from GATCHAMAN II!

Too bad we couldn't get a Miss America to fill out the Battle Fever J team. Or more Ultras, Riders, and Gatchaman, for that matter.
