IS THIS REAL?

If this isn’t a fake then Apple are even more brilliant than I thought.

AVENGERS #212-213: Hank Pym is a Jerk!

Hank starts being a complete tool.  I love this storyline.  It was adapted by Mark Millar in The Ultimates, but the version told in these issues of The Avengers was much better.  It was also way ahead of its time to show spousal abuse and its effects on close friends of the couple.

I still find it bizarre that Hank Pym was allowed to come back to the team again after what ends up happening in the next five issues.

Here is the famous backhanded slap that swoll her eye up and got YJ kicked off the team.

I don’t understand why he’s court martialed in #213, since The Avengers aren’t military, but the story was cool. It would have been even better if it had been more decompressed. Everything happened pretty quick. But back then, they didn’t really do long-running stories very often.

Truly powerful issues written by Jim Shooter.

Next issue is a just a rocking done-in-one fight, to move away from all this heavy stuff.

AVENGERS ANNUAL #10

Most annuals suck.  I’m not even covering most of the annuals because they’re not part of the ongoing storyline.

But Avengers Annual #10 is the exception.  Written by Chris Claremont and illustrated by the legendary Michael Golden, this is the one that de-powered Ms. Marvel and introduced Rogue.

My copy is signed by Mr. Golden, who is a hell of a guy.  One of my favorite comic books of all time.
