Always liked The Destructor, me, even if we only ever got the first and third issues in the UK. I don't know for sure where I bought this issue, but I do know it was on holiday somewhere, as every time I read it I get a sense memory of reading it on a beach. As I've said before, sometimes your favourite things are all about where you first encountered them, and this is one of my very favourite Summer Holiday comics.
Like Marvel Preview #4, I genuinely have no idea if this is a good comic or not, I've simply read it too many times now to have an unbiased opinion.
I could be all critical and post-modern, and try to sell it to you with:
The Destructor is a proto-Wolverine, what with his sort of animal-based powers / The Huntress is a great bitch villainess with one of Ditko's best costume designs / Her sidekick Lobo's unrequited love for her is a neat twist in the story etc etc.
But I don't need to do that, because The Destructor #3 always instantly transports me back to childhood every time I read it, and sometimes we need a little bit of that in our lives.
I just wish he'd been around a bit longer, maybe just long enough to develop a catchphrase:
" You've been Destructed! "
" Let's Destruct! "
Wait, I got it:
" IT'S DESTRUCTION TIME! "
Tell me you wouldn't've wanted to see that...
