Marvel Triple Action Marvel Triple Action Marvel Triple Action was a reprint publication for the early issues of the Fantastic four and the Avengers.arvel Triple Action was a reprint title from the 1970's, reprinting older Avengers issues (after the first four issues were devoted to Fantastic Four reprints). True to its name, Marvel Triple Action brought readers some of the hardest-hitting action stories from Marvel’s early years. In its 47-issue run, it reprinted some of the best stories from the early years of the Fantastic Four and The Avengers. It was an extra sized comic at first (reprinting 3 issues at a time), but after a two issues it went to regular size and by issue #5, it was reprinting the Avengers, starting with issue #10. It kept the title for some reason...

Publication HistoryEdit

Marvel 70's reprints were odd in how they started. For this one, it's odd because the Fantastic Four was being reprinted in Marvel's Greatest Comics and in March 1972, they were reprinting Fantastic Four 46 & 47 in Marvel's Greatest, while then in Febuary of 1972, they were reprinting Fantastic Four 55 - 57 in Marvel Triple Action.

Those early issues featured the great Marvel heroes heroes like The Human Torch, The Thing, Silver Surfer, Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America as they battled enemies and saved the world from everyone from Dr. Doom to the Mole Man.For many, who were growing up at the time, older comics were nearly impossible to get (for those of comic fans in the boondocks, anyway), and MTA provided us with some fantastic Avengers stories that we otherwise wouldn't have been able to afford.This was way before the time of Marvel Masterworks and reprint publications.This book was reprinting stories from the era when the Avengers consisted of Captain America, Hawkeye, the Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver - a weak lineup, it seemed to me, but the stories were fantastic. Don Heck's art lended itself to dynamic figures, manic action, and fantastic machinery; Roy Thomas was fresh and creative and had a definite vision of super-heroic stories that was a perfect complement to what his mentor Stan Lee had been doing.Sometimes covers were the original covers,with Marvel Triple Action logo placed over the art,instead of the original logo.Other time,New covers were drawn for an issue.

As time wore on, later issues of the Avengers comic were reprinted. Many comic fans got to read about the introduction of such characters as Ultron - whom Marvel Fan had always been intrigued with since Fantastic Four #150 - and his creation The Vision, a favorite superhero of mine and some schoolmates. Like Marvel Tales with the Spider-man stories and Marvel's Greatest Comics with Fantastic Four issues, MTA provided kids of the 1970's with beautiful, full-color reprints of classic Silver Age stories that we'd previously only heard about, and all for the same cover price as our regular comics. Even in this day of deluxe Marvel Masterworks and DC Archives, nothing beat the thrill of being able to go to the local comics dealer and pick up classic stories, month after month.
