Marvel Super-heroes Secret Wars #4. Two words: Hulk. Mountain.
Happy goosebumps appear as a youngster-- heck, still as an adult-- while looking at the scene of Hulk holding up a mountain while the other heroes (trapped under there with him) devise a method of escape. The heroes working together is nice to see... much better than watching them tear each other apart as they seem to do in civil wars these days...
This series is a favorite of mine, as is the much maligned sequel series. I own all issues of both series. But this issue tops the other individual issues, however, because of the Hulk-meets-mountain scenario. I got this issue as part of a three pack of Secret Wars issues in the late 1980s from Value City. Oh, the memories...
