I guess Thor gets poked on the nipple every time he tries to lower his arms from those loose constraints.

@GAC - You would have to read the story, which starts off with a night on the town with Batman being announced as one of the prizes for the newly crowned Queen of Gotham at the Gotham Beauty Awards Contest. Even worse, Batman is described as "the most coveted male in Gotham." This issue, similar to Batman #210, tried to tap into the growing woman's lib/feminist movement of the time (1968/9). Of course if you look at it today, doesn't the cover come off as the opposite of empowering women by saying women should or even need to get married? The late 1960's were a crazy time, and I guess they couldn't show women burning their bras on comic book covers.

@esaravo It most certainly does come across that way...based on the cover alone it seems to be advocating for domestication women needing men. I was born in '71 so I missed the excitement of the 60s.....burning bras on the cover would certainly have made a statement lol! Another example though of comics trying to be relevant and reflective of their times which I applaud.

On the topic of 1960s publishers attempting to be relevant to the changing social norms, my friend Michal Jacot made a point that summed it up so perfectly that I will never forget it. He basically said that Stan Lee/ Marvel came across as hip and cool, like one one of your friends, while DC came across more like your dad trying to act cool in front of your friends 😂.

I was going to post Superman 214 which I recently acquired but decided to keep going with the Superboy and the Legion covers. I doubt anyone else has these in their collection.

For some reason, this cover makes me think of DD #131.

This is the first appearance of Tyroc, one of DC's early attempts at introducing an African-American super-hero. I can't recall the details but Mike Grell wasn't happy with how the character was portrayed or his power set, so designed the worst costume he could think of. I'd say he succeeded.
