Easter Eggs: Clark Kent Visits the Daily Bugle!

Welcome to another installment of Easter Eggs in Comics! Click here for the archive!

In MARVEL TEAM-UP #79, dated March 1978, the not-yet-legendary-but-soon-would-be X-Men team of Chris Claremont and John Byrne teamed up Spider-Man with Red Sonja, She-Devil with a Sword!

An early scene sees Peter Parker walking into the offices of the Daily Bugle, with Superman in his mild-mannered persona as Clark Kent dropping by for a visit.

"Mild-mannered reporter" is a classic phrase associated with Superman, and Robbie Robertson's reference to a "metropolitan TV network" refers to Metropolis' WGBS-TV, where Clark Kent worked as the co-anchor for the news program from 1971 until the Crisis on Infinite Earths in 1986!
