In 1975, Big Pun got his first solo adventure–a done in one, black and white in Marvel Preview #2, in which we first see his origin (above).
It’s ironic: It isn’t until a black and white comic that we first see any shades of gray in this character. Before this, he was simply a hitman in white boots. Now, tragedy creates depth.
But he still doesn’t have a name.
