Marvel Premiere

    (Marvel, 1972-1981)
™ and ©1979 Marvel Entertainment Group

In its nearly decade-long run, Marvel Premiere served as a proving ground for a host of new characters. Iron Fist, Woodgod, Caleb Hammer, and many others made first appearances in Marvel Premiere. Other characters, like the Falcon and Jack of Hearts were featured here in their first solo stories. And yes, Marvel premiere was also the venue at which Alice Cooper made his first comic book appearance.
