Mourn Hostess Properly With These 11 Hilarious Marvel Comics Advertisements

Whether it’s due to crippling mismanagement or labor strikes, the fact of the matter is that Hostess is winding down its operations. Their brands are for sale, which could mean we’ll see Twinkies once again produced outside of Canada, but the company as it exists in the United States is going away. Back in the day, the company took out a series of hilarious advertisements within the pages of Marvel Comics, and we’ve collected our 11 favorite ads to pay our respects.

With Hostess gone, how will Spider-Man defeat The Chairman now? If it weren’t for the gumption of those kids, and their handfuls of Twinkies, he would have been a goner. Captain Marvel also seems to feature quite a bit, but none of his appearances are as bizarre.
