SPIDER-WOMAN #33 (1980): 1st Turner D Century

This is a fan-favorite issue, an underground classic, not because it’s good but because it’s so, so, SO bad. It features the debut of Turner D. Century, an ultra-right winger who really wants all those kids off his lawn. He rides an old-fashioned bike and has an umbrella that shoots fire, which he uses to burn college students alive. Seriously. So he’s pretty damn evil, in addition to being stupid.

He seems to die in the end when a building he is in burns down.

Even the worst of comics can have their good parts.  I liked this sequence…
