I never bought any, never saw them at the store--I got some from friends, and we went through the whole set eventually to get the whole story. This was my first exposure to Wally Wood art, not his best, but certainly memorable. From the sanitized no-blood one-punch-allowed per page DC comics world to the brutal and graphic Mars Attacks was a giant jump.
That "Hairy Fiend" card became the prize of our gum card collection which was soon to reach 6500 cards or so. It wasn't until about 25 years ago that I figured out that our "Hairy Fiend" card was part of the notorious Mars Attacks set. I've been pecking away at these highly prized and therefore expensive Mars Attacks cards ever since but I still don't have a "Hairy Fiend" card. Here is a scan of the only nine Mars Attacks cards I've been able to acquire:

As to who I would vote for - well, I'll save that for your poll!

I have read every FLASH comic book appearance from 1956 to 1969 and hereby rank his rogues thusly: 01. WEATHER WIZARD (Mark Mardon) 02. MISTER ELEMENT/DOCTOR ALCHEMY (Albert Desmond) 03. CAPTAIN COLD (Leonard Snart) I wish THE FLASH had an equal number of female antagonists during the same time period!!

Action #300 and an earlier Action Comic (#262?- where Supes goes into the past with Lois, Perry and loses his powers- art by Boring) come immediately to mind. I don't think I have this issue anymore, so hopefully someone will do a spotlight on it this month.

Commander- thanks for the re-cap of the JLA story and commentary. Very enjoyable piece, indeed!
