Still Tapped Into the Zeitgeist, Effendi!

As part of Marvel Comics' 70th anniversary celebration, they ran a customer poll to determine the 70 greatest Marvel covers of all time. When I heard about this, one cover instantly leapt to mind. When I went to their site to see the winners, I was pleased to see that very issue was voted #3. Number two is iconic, I'll grant you, but if removed from its historical context I really don't think it's anything special. Number one is OK, but not something I'd put in the top ten. I agree with the high marks for #4 and #10, but there are covers later in the list-- notably many of the paintings-- that are much better than some of the ones that precede them.

Fun to browse.

What would qualify a cover more than being iconic Peter?

The Fantastic Four #1 cover made the #21 spot? really?
That cover has been parodied and given numerous nods- like the spiderman Amazing Fantasy cover has- heck there's even been a diorama made of it!
This list is... kinda' dumb.
Want proof?
What artist got the top spot- Todd McFarlane. yeeeah...
