Manic Hostess Monday--They're Real!! They're Really Real!!

Stunning revelation of the year:

Those Hostess ads are real!!

Or, rather, in the Marvel Universe, actual heroes did advertising for Hostess Fruit Pies and the like!!

I wonder if they took the form of faux comic book stories, as did the Hostess ads in our own boring reality. How much did the heroes make? Was Spider-Man able to cash his checks? What about the villains in the ads--were they paid?!? Or does the 616 have a "Son Of Sam" type law that prevented convicted crooks from profiting of the stories of their misdeeds? What about the ads starring DC heroes? Did they appear in this universe? If so, were they merely perceived as fictional characters hawking goods, like in our reality?

Sadly, Janet van Dyne never appeared in a Hostess ad in our world...
