Back to the Future Cover O' the Day - "Late Night of the Super-Stars!"

10:29 AM

The Avengers #239
Marvel, January 1984
Writer: Roger L. Stern
Penciller: Allen "Al" Milgrom

In light of the late-night show feud of Jay Leno & Conan O'Brien created by NBC and big-chinned bully, I bring you the current King of Late-Night, David Letterman. He was featured in The Avengers book during Marvel's "Assistant Editor's Month" promotion where many of the Marvel books took a humorous tone for the month. In this issue Wonder Man (check out the uber-cool shades & metro-sexual turtleneck and jacket) calls Avengers Mansion with the news that his agent has arranged an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman if he brings the Avengers with him. The Vision rounds up Avengers Reservists the Beast, Black Panther and Black Widow (love the short-haired do) to join Hawkeye and Wonder Man on Letterman. Minutes after settling in for their interview, the Avengers are attacked by the nefarious machines of Fabian Stankowicz. While the Avengers are busy fighting the machines, Stankowicz takes the stage to talk to Letterman.
After humoring Stankowicz for a few moments, Dave knocks him out with a giant doorknob prop. As usual, the gap-toothed late-night MC saves the day.
I'd like to mention the royal screw job that NBC and the unfunny Jay Leno is giving the current Prince of Late Night, Conan O'Brien. Not only is NBC destroying The Tonight Show franchise, they are doing a great disservice to one of the most talented people in show business. Moreover, NBC is screwing the environment - they built a $70 million studio for The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien that will be used for all of 7 months. Good going NBC. And you wonder why you are last in the network ratings.
