Strap on your fanny packs and head back to 1992 in this radical time-capsule tour of Marvel Comics headquarters from an old episode of MTV.  This was when MTV actually still was associated with MUSIC and played VIDEOS, if you can believe it, before the demise of the art form and their venture into inane reality shows and socially relevant scripted dramas.  This nostaglic look back at MTV's heyday and the inner workings at Marvel was taped on Feb. 10, 1992, and shared by former Marvel employee Jared Osborn, showing VJ Karyn Bryant wandering around the office peering over the shoulders of inkers and letterers who are sporting some epic mullets.  Bonus footage gives us Bob Harras, editor of the X-Men line at that time, and senior executive editor Mark Gruenwald, who chats about his electrifying run writing for Captain America.

Take a trip back in time to the legendary Marvel bullpen, with Spider-Man comics, Camaro Cuts and Cosby sweaters galore, and tell us where were you in '92!  Now roll that Red Hot Chili Peppers video!!
