Issue #5 of Volume One contained an authentic advertisement for a Marvel-brand douche from the early part of the 20th century. This ad caused DC Comics executive Paul Levitz to order the entire print run destroyed over concerns that this could lead to litigation with their main rival Marvel Comics. With only 100 thought to exist this makes it more than 10-20 times rarer than the Elseworlds 80-Page Giant that Paul Levitz also recalled, and is probably the rarest modern comic book in existence. Images show front, rear and top of item. This was CGC certified in October 2020.
