List of comic book letter column titles

The typical comic book letter column — until its general disappearance in the early 2000s — had its own title, usually a reference to the book’s hero or heroes. "Cape and Cowl Comments" (World's Finest Comics), "JLA Mailroom" (Justice League of America), "Legion Outpost" (Legion of Super-Heroes), "Metropolis Mailbag," (Superman), "Avengers Assemble!" (Avengers), "Letters to the Living Legend," (Captain America), "The Spider's Web" (Amazing Spider-Man), and "X-Mail," (Uncanny X-Men) are just a few examples of this tradition.
