Sub-Mariner into 1967

Living up to the hype, Defenders #9 did indeed take the non-team "Sideways into 1967!" The trip landed the Defenders on a parallel Earth a handful of decades in the past, bringing a version of S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury from the 1960s into the larger storyline around the reality-bending Concordance Engine.

Though pictured on the cover, Sub-Mariner did not partake in the issue.

With that segue, here's a look at four striking covers from comic books published in 1967 that did spotlight the Prince of Atlantis!

"It Walks Like a Man" sounds like the kind of story that would appear in Tales to Astonish almost ten years earlier, when it was a horror anthology comic.

Of course the back up story to Namors in Tales to Astonish #92 features the first meeting between the Surfer and The Hulk, All of them in one issue was this the seed Titans Three? A true milestone in Defenders history.
