Post Office of the Past! MARVEL TEAM-UP Fun! 1973!

Take a gander (click to enlarge) at the letter column above, from a 1973 issue of MARVEL TEAM-UP. That last mighty missive offers and invokes a tale that the editor (Roy Thomas?) thinks little of, but will be used many times in comics to come. 

The old "which villain murdered the lead character" bit would soon be used in 1977's BATMAN 291 (below), and later in the 2000s in the BATMAN run again. A very good and suspenseful premise that WOULD have been quite interesting in an early 70s SPIDER-MAN comic!
