The Doctor Solar blew me away.  Any comic covers in your collection to go with it?

A very strong costume to be sure!

I have all but one. Since you've put in a special request, here are scans of the first three where he's in costume:

Thankee kindly!  Extremely cool.  Nothing better than those Gold Key covers.  Which one you missing?

I discovered that my #3 had a big white liquid paper mark on the bottom of the front cover! So therefore I need to replace it.

The Ben Cooper Spider-Man costume could be found in a nice looking box but the costume itself was pretty lousy:
