David Miller- "Rhino on the Rebound!" Marvel Romance #20. No, I'm just kidding... It's really The Thing #24. Or thereabouts.

Dave Phelps- Either Avengers 71 or Marvel Super Action #32. Based on the other comics you listed, I'd have to say MSA #32.

Joe Smith- Either Amazing Spider-Man #144 or Marvel Tales #121

A couple more that I believe are still unsolved...

Brian Hague- "From the Ashes of the Old... A NEW Team Shall Be Born!"

Sean Watson- "Blood Feud!"

Y'know, there's an unfortunate number of fans who came up through the Ultimate era at Marvel who are going to have to play this game in years to come by describing Ultimate Peter's action pose and which direction the light source is from...

"Okay, tough one, gang! Side bar is red, Peter's three-quarters of the way upside-down, right arm out, left leg bent behind his buttocks, light source: above right. Go!"

Brian Hague - weird, I remember copying over Blood Feud, but there it wasn't. Yours I just completely missed. :-)

Anyway, you're correct about mine (MSA #32) and I think yours was Showcase #94 (first appearance of the New Doom Patrol).

You are correct, Dave! I'm pretty sure there are a dozen or so comics out there somewhere with variations on "Final Battle" as cover copy, but that was the first one I could recall and the vintage seemed right. "Blood Feud" should be pretty common as well, but I can't specifically place one as yet. 

The one with the flying capitol building I can almost picture, but maybe I'm just imagining it. :-)

From the first two comics I remember owning reading -

"Too bad you injured your hands Shield-slinger!"
"Right on! 'Cause now you're easy pickin's for-- The Serpent Squad!"


"Your Armor's as strong as mine-- but I'll still find a way to smash you!  I Must"
"No way Tinhead! And even if you do beat me you're still a dead man, 'cause-- The Masked Marauder Lives!"


A few years back I made a page with the covers of the first comics I read from 1972 through 1974 -  https://sites.google.com/site/bobstersmicroheroes/my-first-c omics

Michael Hogan - okay, that title just screams "John Byrne Fantastic Four Dr. Doom story." I know FF #259 and #279 had words on the covers, but blanking on what they were. Well, #259 had Tyros (a "plus one") so I'll go with that.



(It's #279, isn't it? :-) )

Robert Bradley - the Serpent Squad is from Captain America #163 (love me that Englehart Captain America...)

From "tinhead," I'm guessing the other one's Iron Man. Don't know the number offhand, but if you got it with the Captain America, it would've been around #60.

Dave Phelps, you got it! Firestorm #53. Though the earlier guess at a Flash issue was really smart, considering the double caption.
