Spider-Man Meets June Jitsui! (Hostess Ads #3)

No Caption Provided
On a site dedicated to making a wiki history of all things comics, comics ads should not be forgotten. Especially the ads for Hostess Fruit Pies, Twinkies, and other snacks. Starting in 1975, Marvel and DC heroes (and the Harvey characters!) spent seven years throwing Hostess snacks at a bizarre line of villains to stop their crimes. Although many of the villains were completely silly, they were created specifically for these ads, and in many cases, not even the names have been used again, since the ads stopped in mid-1982.

So I thought I'd show an ad here, and make a list of the comics I find it in, as I run across them. This list features: Spider-Man Meets June Jitsui! As noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page:

Martial arts expert June Jitsui ended up tangling with Spider-Man in a nearby park. Using his recently-bought Hostess Twinkies to distract her chopping hands, Spidey easily webbed June to a tree branch.
