Ad It Up: Marvel Action Universe

The Marvel Action Universe was apparently a block of syndicated animated programming that sprung up in the late 80s. As you can surely tell by the ad here, some of the shows included were Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends, Dino-Riders and Robocop: The Animated Series. I don’t have any specific memories of these cartoons necessarily but I do remember getting toys based on the latter two. Anyway, what struck me when I first saw this ad while flipping through Punisher #15 from 1988 was that I wish this was an actual team book. I’m sure, like many toon based books I’ve picked up over the years, it would not have been any good, but the art would sure be neat.
