Halloween Costumes of the Past! Hulk! Bionic Man! Captain Britain?!

Get a load of this mid-70s Halloween costume ad, from our pals at Plaid Stallions! Sure, you can see the usual awkward re-imaginings of The Hulk, Wonder Woman, as well as both the Bionic Man and Woman, but Captain Britain!? CB was that era's attempt, by Marvel Comics, to push a UK version of their "Captain America"character. Despite some darned good stories and art (both in England and stateside), CB failed to catch on, so very little (if any) merchandise was produced, making this Cap costume a very oddball item, indeed!
