    1. Don’t have a cgc copy handy but did check on comicvine.com, marvel.com, and marvel.wikia.com as source. Not doubting what the cgc label says, just stating first un-named appearance was in marvel team-up #1 and first named appearance was in Marvel Premiere #21. Either way, both books are being scooped up.

  1. In case it helps to know (since Marvel created the confusion with this awesome character), Marvel Premiere #20 is technically the first “named mention” of the character, Marvel Premiere #21 is her first “actual” appearance, and then….in Marvel Team-Up #64, Marvel “retconned” Misty’s origin to make the person who appeared in Marvel Team-Up #1 to be Misty (even though that wasn’t the case when that the comic came out: She was a random person saved by Spidey — but she clearly isn’t Misty, doesn’t have her bionic arm, and isn’t a cop). So …. before Marvel Team-Up #64 came out, Marvel Premiere #21 was Misty’s first true appearance. Now….? Hmmm…..I guess we could say the first named appearance of the actual character as we know her is Marvel Premiere #21, AND there’s a reconned “character similarity” in Marvel Team-Up #1. Dontcha just love these recons…?
