    From the mid 80s to early 90s, comic collecting was huge. But for some reason that scene went bust.

    I would assume that truly rare, vintage comics are still valuable, but what's the use of collecting new comics, when so many others are doing the same? If tons of particular issues are being preserved, they'll never truly be rare, and thus won't ever be worth much.

    It's the difference between old, commonplace stuff that gets sold off cheap, and exceptional, uncommon antiques.

    What's with the '1959'? As far I know, both characters' first appearances were in 1962.

    Magnus was one of my favorites when I was a kid!
    The theme could be good for a movie, but I doubt that the character is well known.

    Wikipedia describes it as being ethnically inclusive.

    The most controversial thing is said to be a villain who gained superpowers from using cocaine.

    Extra├▒o, a homosexual Peruvian magician, with energy powers and every gay stereotype you can think of. Presumably the Guardians had also failed in their research when choosing him for a breeding partner. Was eventually revealed to be HIV positive, possibly as a result of an attack by the AIDS-powered vampire Hemo-Goblin. Go ahead and read that last sentence again
