Haven't you ever wanted a Marvel Comics credit card?  Well back in 1996, MBNA which no longer exists offered a Marvel Comics credit card.  The Mastercard had no annual fee and a promotional low interest rate of 9.9% for six months and then prime plus 9.9% afterwards.  Besides being able to be a proud owner of a Marvel Comics credit card featuring Spider-Man, when you signed up and used the card, you also got the following lithograph by artist Mark Bagley.

For me that was enough incentive and yes I did have this credit card when it was offered.  However, as far as credit cards go, there were much better cards out there.  The lithograph was disappointing as far as size (approx. 8.5" x 12.5").  As well, the "Bagley" autograph was pre-printed and not actually hand signed.  Unlike a lot of credit cards now that offers a rewards program by earning points for spending, the card had none.  Shortly after receiving the lithograph, I cancelled the credit card.  The card is no longer offered anymore as MBNA then the 2nd largest credit card issuer was acquired by Bank of America.

If a Marvel credit card was offered again, what incentives would you need to jump on the bandwagon?  Did you ever own the Marvel credit card above?
