    The Merry Marvel Marching Society was started by Stan Lee, co-creator of many of Marvel's main stable of superheroes and villains, in late 1964 as a way to further separate Marvel from DC, or the "Distinguished Competition" as they were referred to. For a $1.00 contribution, each member would receive an official membership kit that included; a letter welcoming you to the organization, a giant-size membership button (featuring Spider-Man, the Human Torch, and the Thing) with the declaration "I Belong: The Merry Marvel Marching Society," a collection of stickers, and a membership card with a pledge of allegiance on the back. You also received a 33 1/3 rpm record with the voices of the Marvel Bullpen (Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, John Romita, and others) clowning around and welcoming you to the M.M.M.S. with the now legendary "March Along" song. Each year a new kit would come out and members only needed to make a $0.75 donation to get the latest items.
