  • In 1967, Marvel began rewarding readers who performed a 'meritorious service to the cause of Marveldom' with an empty envelope that contained a 'No-Prize'
  • Readers qualified to receive a 'No-Prize' by pointing out a continuity error, providing an explanation for an error, sharing a creative idea or winning a contest
  • The 'No-Prize' award evolved from a reply to a reader in the letters column of Fantastic Four #22 which caused an influx of letters pointing out any little error and also confusion over not receiving a physical prize from Marvel which led to the distribution of the empty envelopes
  • Although it was Stan Lee who coined the phrase and the idea, later editors continued the tradition into the late 80s
