Amazing Adventures (3rd Series)

 AMA3   (Marvel, 1970-1976)

™ and © Marvel Entertainment Group

Amazing Adventures started as a double-feature of the Inhumans and the Black Widow. Later, the Beast and the X-Men were featured in their own monthly stories.

Beginning with issue #18, Amazing Adventures switched formats when it began a futuristic War of the Worlds storyline. This epic story takes place in a future where H.G. Well’s Martian invaders have taken over Earth. The remaining humans are kept as slaves, their society being driven back to a feudal state. Out of this wreckage, a new hero, Killraven, rises to lead humans in a war to reclaim their planet.
