Fansite Hits #100

To celebrate this 100th post of the Defenders Fansite, I've decided to list when Marvel's earliest superhero titles reached their centennial issues, as originally published in Marvel Age #100 (May 1991).

As the star of Journey into Mystery, Thor technically tops the chart. Hulk and Sub-Mariner tie for second place, as the featured heroes from Tales to Astonish.

  1. Journey into Mystery #100 (January 1964)
  2. Tales to Astonish #100 (February 1968)
  3. Captain America #100 (April 1968)
  4. Fantastic Four #100 (July 1970)
  5. Amazing Spider-Man #100 (September 1971)
  6. Avengers #100 (June 1972)
  7. Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos #100 (July 1972)
  8. Daredevil #100 (June 1973)
  9. X-Men #100 (August 1976)
  10. Iron Man #100 (July 1977)
  11. Conan the Barbarian #100 (July 1979)
  12. Marvel Team-Up #100 (December 1980)
  13. Master of Kung-Fu #100 (May 1981)
  14. The Defenders #100 (October 1981); this centennial cover appeared in the fansite's second post.

As Fred Hembeck pointed out in Marvel Age #100, Patsy Walker (the future Hellcat) reached issue #100 (April 1962) of her own series before any of the superhero titles above.

Patsy Walker #100, appropriately enough, highlighted her fan club.
