This cartoon is by J. B. Handelsman, from THE SATURDAY EVENING POST for March 13, 1965.
Now, the BATMAN TV series, which sparked tremendous awareness of superheroes among non-fans, did not debut till 1966. But Marvel's remaking of the superhero mythology had of course been building tremendous popularity since 1961.
Still, for a conservative mainstream Middle America mag like the SEP to reference so many comics characters feels like a milestone of sorts.
To the best of my eyesight, we have Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Hawkman, Flash, Human Torch, Spider-Man, and Captain America. The other figures seem generic.
