As well as appearing every month in the Avengers beginning with his return in issue 004, Cap was also featured in two other events in '64.
First, in November, Cap gets his own series in Tales of Suspense 059. This follows on from the previous issue where he guest-stars in the Iron Man story.
Then in December Cap is featured in Sgt Fury 013, a WWII story featuring both Cap and Bucky.
The Return of the Hulk
The Hulk's first series was cancelled after just six issues, he then appeared briefly in the Avengers, and various guest-spots (including a five-page story "The Hulk and the Matador" in the UK publication Smash, which takes place immediately after the Hulk leaves the Avengers) until Tales to Astonish 060 when a new series begins.
The Merry Marvel Marching Society
Not content with promoting the virtues of being a Marvel reader at every opportunity, Stan Lee finally announced in December the fan club, MMMS, which enabled all readers to actually join the Marvel phenomenon.
The membership pack has mostly been scanned and is included in the next upload, dated 196500.
Also included are recordings from the discs sent out to members.
Clint 'Hawkeye' Barton trains under the tutelage of Jaques Duquesne, who will become the Swordsman, and becomes the world's greatest marksman. He makes his first appearance in Tales of Suspense 057.
When he first makes his appearance he aims to emulate, and become, another Super Hero but circumstances make him seem to appear a villain.
Eventually he becomes the hero he always wanted to be and joins the Avengers.
Traveling into the past from an alternate future Kang battles the Avengers for the first time in issue 008.
His 'history' will become one of the more complicated of Marvel characters and will involve Dr Doom and Reed Richards, as well as other identities such as Immortus and Rama-Tut.
Kang will return on many occasions to provide the Avengers with one of their greatest foes.
Introduced in Amazing Spider-Man 014 by Lee and Ditko, the Green Goblin is one of the few characters whose real identity remained a secret for a while.
Different suggestions have been made as to who was intended to be the true identity of the Goblin, and it wasn't until Ditko had left Marvel that the Goblin was revealed to be Norman Osborn, in issue 040.
Osborn is introduced in issue 023 as a background character, and introduced as Peter Parker's friend Harry's father in issue 037.
The future will be a grim one for Spider-Man as the Goblin becomes not only one of Spidey's biggest foes, but one who will take away what Parker holds most dear.
Simon Williams becomes Wonder Man in issue 009 of the Avengers, allowing Baron Zemo, the man responsible for Bucky's death, to transform him into a powerful enemy of the Avengers.
Although initially motivated by his jealousy of Tony Stark's business success, Williams sees the error of his ways and helps the Avengers to defeat Zemo.
Although he appears to have died he is actually in a deep coma and returns in the seventies, eventually joining the Avengers.
Marvel Tales is the first title to reprint stories from the new Marvel Age of Comics.
Other titles would follow over the next couple of years, allowing readers to catch up on the adventures of their favourite characters.

About the Complete Marvel Chronology
The Complete Marvel Chronology (CMC) is version 2.0 of the Marvel Chronology (MC).
The MC was created by cyager69 aka Chuck, who uploaded Marvel comics beginning with Fantastic Four 001 (Nov 61) through to the issues published in Jun 1997.
When Chuck was unable to continue the uploads I took over the MC and uploaded the remainder of the issues through to December 2008. Additional uploads added various titles not cover-dated with a specific month (the 'Decades' uploads) and seven Fill packs added new scans for issues missing when the original uploads were done for the 70's through to the 90's.
With none of Chuck's original uploads online, the decision was to either upload the original version of 1961-1996 or go with a brand new, full version incorporating the missing genres, such as romance, western and humour, and including the imprints which Chuck intended to upload following the completion of the MC.
The CMC will cover Marvel's entire seventy year history. At present I am uploading the years beginning with 1960 and these uploads will continue right through to December 1996. After that I have not finalised what will follow, but the likelihood will be that I go back to upload the 39-59 period, and then upload the 97-09 period again. When I do upload version 2.0 of 97-09 there will be many additions and many new scans.
News and Notes
This upload completes the year 1964 covering the months July through to December.
The listing of Fantastic Four Annual issue 001 in the 1963 00-06 upload is slightly incorrect, the file-name shows the issue as published with a cover-date of 196306, but it should be 196300.
The issue is just dated 1963 and doesn't have a month of publication in the indicia.
The error has been copied over from the UHBMCC website, I don't know how they came up with the date.
The comic was published on 2nd July 1963, according to research completed by Joe Marek, so if it did have a cover-date it would be some three months after July, certainly not June.
If you are burning the downloads onto disc you can amend the details for posterity, but if you are seeding don't forget to leave the original upload intact, thanks.
Thanks to Alusias for reporting that issue.
The next upload will be for 1965, complete in two uploads.
Plans are to upload '65 on either Monday or Tuesday.
Enjoy today's comics, please keep seeding and I'll see you with the upload for '65 very soon.
Books used as research material in completing the CMC include -
Marvel Chronicle - Tom DeFalco
Marvel Vault - Roy Thomas and Pete Sanderson
Tales of the Implosion - Tom Lammers
Standard Catalogue of Comics 5th Edition
Thanks to all the scanners, editors and uploaders who make the scans available.
Thanks for the support of all those who seed the CMC.
