Limited Collectors’ Edition presents Secret Origins of Super-Villains (1975)

Secret Origins of Super-Villains

Another super-sized “treasury” comic, this one featured origin stories for Lex Luthor, the Joker (as the Red Hood), Captain Cold, Dr. Silvana and Terra-Man. It also had a great villain pin-up and profiles of the Cheetah, Sinestro, the Shadow Thief, and Chronos.

Captain Cold does his thing

Finally, this treasury edition had an awesome front cover, with the villains facing off against their super-hero nemeses, and a cut-out diorama on the back cover. (I couldn’t bring myself to cut up the comic, so the diorama remained unassembled.)
