First You May Have Missed: Pink Goblin/Thunder Lizard

Welcome, it's about that time for a First You May Have Missed. Today will be a simple and sweet one but being the Moon Girl enthusiast that I am, i can not resist a 1st appearance.

Lets jump right into this, Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur #42 the first meeting of Moon Girl and Spider-Man, and who else would they fight? Well the Pink Goblin of course. Not much is really know about the Pink Goblin and this may be a character never seen again but hey we got green goblins red goblins and hobgoblins so who knows. Pink Goblin shows up while Moon Girl and Spider-Man are having an argument and is quickly thwarted by the duo.

At this point with Moon Girl still being new, the potential for growth is good and any 1st in the series can one day become relevant as the story continues, With that being said lets make this a Moon Girl double feature.

Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaurs #43 1st appearance of Thunder Lizard!!!! The day we have all been waiting for has finally come. Moon Girl and Thor get into a misunderstood battle and when she knocks his hammer from his hand it is grabbed by Devil Dinosaur changing him into Thunder Lizard.


Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaurs #42 sub 6k print run with one cover. 1st Pink Goblin and meeting Spider-Man. Hard pass for most but for Moon Girl gamblers clear out those dollar bins and wait with the rest if us.


Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaurs #43 9k print run 2 covers including a nice Battle Lines cover which i think accounts for the bump in print run. 1st appearance of Thunder Lizard and meeting with Thor. Just a fun comical book but doubt it will ever go anywhere to be honest.

Thank you for taking this Moon Girl appreciation trip with me this week and as always “its better to have first and flipped than to never have first at” -Valiant Horton.

    Thunder lizard is an awesome mash up. May never go anywhere but I still love the zaniness!

    Ok. Ive been thing about this for a while. And this has just got to happen. IF comics like
    Moon Girl
    Squirel Girl
    Unwatchable Wasp
    Ms. Marvel
    HAve to be made. They are obviously not made for me or the average comic book fan but made for the kids. Then plz. Just write another Marvel universe on it’s own for kids. Send it over to IDW to lic.

    It just drives me mad when they get spider man here. Which drives down his team up value or Squirrel girl gets Dr. Doom or Galactus or Task Master. AS this point Task Master is just a clown. Dr. Doom and Galactus is almost there

    Can I get some agreements or disagreements on this???

      That’s a interesting take…..and I can somewhat see the devaluing of a character by showing him in a clownish roll…..especially if that character is a reoccurring figure in a popular book.

        The value of a character is what I place on it. If I see something that doesn’t appeal to me I just don’t partake. Pretty simple. Kid’s can have Spiderman too, because when I was a kid he was pretty valuable to me.

          Sorry getting to this a little late but i can see both sides. There was a time when all comic books were seen as children’s books and even though it has now shaken that stigma i do think that they are still able to appeal to all ages. In the real world children do interact with adults so i think having a child based universe may be a disservice to everyone in my opinion but i do see where seeing your favorite villain getting beat by a young girl can be upsetting i just choose to ignore what i do not like as accustomfigues said. Long Live Thunder Lizard!!! thanks for the comments everyone.
