Rutland Halloween Parade

The Rutland Halloween Parade is an annual event held on Halloween in the city of Rutland, since 1960. The parade has a strong superhero theme and has been the setting for a number of fictional comic book adventures. Local officials maintain that it is one of the largest and longest running Halloween parades in the United States. Tom Fagan, a local writer and comic book fan, is credited with having a hand in the parade's early development and superhero theme; the parade began as an annual tradition in 1959. According to a 2006 Boston Globe article, "in 1965... the Joker, Plastic Man, Dr. Strange were roaming the streets of Rutland, along with Batman. More comic book heroes appeared every year.... " According to a 2008 Comics Buyer's Guide obituary of Fagan... 5,000 spectators watched the 11th annual parade in 1970, with marchers who included the Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, Black Widow, Wasp, Vision, Captain America, Havok. Riding on a float were Thor and Sif, along with the Norn Queen; the Red Skull hitched a ride on the float for no known thematic reason....

Present were Nighthawk and Captain Marvel — and a few other DC heroes that Fagan was discreet enough not to mention. The parade kicked off, he noted, with the familiar cry of "Avengers Assemble!" and ended on the same note." The 2006 Boston Globe story explains that "... Fagan was friends with many comic book artists, most of whom hailed from New York. Fagan persuaded some of them to take part in the Rutland Halloween Parade in comic book character costumes. Many creators stayed as guests at Fagan's 24-room mansion outside of Rutland, which has since become the Antique Mansion Bed & Breakfast. Comic book creators known to have attended the parade over the years include Steve Englehart, Gerry Conway, Marv Wolfman, Bernie Wrightson, Dennis O'Neil, Roy Thomas, Alan Weiss and Richard Pini, Dave Cockrum, Len Wein. By the mid-2000s Fagan was no longer directly involved in the planning of the parade; the popular event continued nonetheless, with Fagan and a close personal friend of the'inner circle', attending as a guest in 2006 and 2007, sitting with the judges.

Fagan had died on October 21 of that year. An article eulogizing Fagan in the Rutland Herald stated "Without Tom, there wouldn't be a Halloween parade in Rutland.... That's his legacy." The parade celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2009. In the 1970s, the Rutland Halloween Parade achieved a degree of fame when it was used as the setting of a number of superhero comic books, in titles published by industry rivals DC Comics and Marvel Comics; the first appearance of the parade was in Avengers #83, published by Marvel with a cover-date of December 1970. Tom Fagan was himself featured as a character in a number of stories depicted as an acquaintance of the title characters. Due to the nature of the masquerade parade, these issues saw people dressed as Marvel heroes appearing in DC publications, vice versa, marking some of the first intercompany crossovers in comics. Caution was exercised, over widespread use of the competition's characters — Fagan, was drawn as Nighthawk in Marvel-published Rutland Halloween stories.

In the fall of 1972, writers Steve Englehart, Gerry Conway, Len Wein crafted a loose three-part story spanning titles from both companies. Each comic featured Englehart and Wein interacting with Fagan and Marvel or DC villains. Beginning in Amazing Adventures #16, the Beast hitches a ride from Englehart, driving the Weins and Conway to Rutland; the story terminates. The action continues in Justice League of America #103, with Batman and other JLAers wind up leading the parade while attempting to capture Felix Faust. Faust steals Englehart's car, but is pulled over by the police. In the third part of the unofficial crossover, Thor #207, the three comics creators again visit Fagan, during which visit Englehart's car is stolen by the unseen and unmentioned DC villain Felix Faust, as shown in JLA #103. In the letters page of What If? #22, a reader asked, "Does Rutland, annually become a nexus of realities similar to that existing in the swamp near Citrusville, Florida?" Marvel editor Mark Gruenwald, writing as The Watcher, responded, "While the nexus in Citrusville is a natural aperture, the nexus near Rutland is an artificial one that fluctuates in size and accessibility.

For reasons that I have not investigated, it has not been opened in recent years."In 1986, the parade again appeared in WaRP Graphics' Thunderbunny #5. The town of Rutland was portrayed in DC's Animal Man #50, but not the Halloween parade itself. Most the parade was featured in Marvel Comic's Generation X #22 and Superboy and the Ravers #16 from DC Comics. Note: Not all of these appearances feature the Halloween Parade; some feature Tom Fagan and some the town of Rutland.
