May* 1965 - 1st appearance of Juggernaut, S.H.I.E.L.D., and Hydra; 1st ongoing Namor series
Like Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (who makes his debut this month), we're still operating from bunkers in undisclosed locations, protecting ourselves from an omnipresent invisible enemy. Join us as we talk about the Marvel Comics high points from May 1965, including a new ongoing series, Gene "Adam Austin" Colan's Silver Age Marvel Comics debut, and the irresistible arrival of X-Men's most immovable adversary!

*Starting with this season, we'll be covering issues based on the month they were released, not their cover date. So this is our second "May 1965" episode. The previous one included Marvel comics cover-dated May 1965; this episode features the issues that hit the stands in May 1965.
