In the 22 years that I've been reading comics, I've built up a collection with some pretty weird stuff in it: A pristine copy of "Godzilla vs. Barkley" in which Godzilla rises from the ocean to do battle on the court with a foot-tall Sir Charles , a copy of " Rock Reflections of a Super-Hero ," even the two comics about Prince that Dwayne McDuffie wrote back in the early '90s. But of all the weird ephemera I've got laying around, this is one of my favorite pieces:. Released in by writer Ann Picardo and artist Joe Giella, the "Strength and Fitness Book" was an attempt to whip the ever-widening youth of America into shape by illustrating simple exercises as performed by everyone's favorite Marvel heroes. The end result wasn't just an exercise manual, and it's every bit as strange as you'd expect from something called the "Mighty Marvel Strength and Fitness Book," which is why I've gathered up my ten favorite pages! The book opens with some exercises performed by the Human Torch, because who better to illustrate the idea of the warm-up?
