Photos: Spider-Man and Hulk (and the Denver Post) battle Dr. Doom in the "Colorado Caper"


Dr. Doom gives Solzyn the option of staying in Colorado, confident he'll reject the deal to keep his daughter safe. But Post reporter Hamilton knows the little girl is safe -- thanks to a tip from fellow journo Peter Parker!

At last, Solzyn and his daughter are free of Dr. Doom's sinister influence. How to celebrate? The scientist decides to treat Parker and Banner (but not poor reporter Hamilton) to "fine new clothes...at the famous May D&F store."

A happy ending? The nattily clad youngster on the left side of the back-cover ad sure thinks so. As for the Hulk, he's got just one word: "IZZODD!"

I seem to remember the Post using the comics along w/ the Sunday advertisements . I delivered the paper via shopping cart to a few Capitol Hill apt buildings growing up & kinda recall the insert . I wasn't big on comics, but I'm remembering putting comics in more than one issue ...

I have a different one of these starring Iceman and Firestar from the "Spiderman and his Amazing Friends" cartoon--which I'd guess is also where this came from? It's been a while. The product placements are fantastic. Spidey and Iceman talking Jordache.

I miss May D & F. Well, actually, I miss the building, the I.M. Pei the city tore down...
