Marvel Super-Heroes Special (1966): 1

Marvel Super-Heroes (1967): 12-31

Marvel Super-Heroes Special #1 and issues 12-20 of the second series mainly reprinted Golden Age and Atlas Era stories. The second series was a continuation of Fantasy Masterpieces (1966) and introduced new characters such as Captain Marvel and the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Issues 21-31 contained only reprints, mostly focusing on Daredevil and Iron Man. There were also Avengers, X-Men, and Hulk stories. With issue 32, Marvel Super-Heroes became a regular-sized comic that reprinted the Tales to Astonish stories featuring the Hulk and the Sub-Mariner.

These are all giant-sized issues with 25-cent covers. Story titles in brackets (i.e. []) are actually untitled stories. I'm just using the same title listed in the Grand Comics Database (www.comics.org).
