Folks can hate on Avengers #214 on the ground that Ghost Rider basically beats the crap out of the entire team, as well as the mutant Angel from The X-Men and The Champions.

But I love it.

I love Ghost Rider’s smart approach to beating Thor–he outruns Mjolnir until it reaches its limit and boomerangs back, then he grabs it and rides it back to the thunder God, and then blasts him with hellfire.

I love that it’s a good Ghost Rider comic–something very rare.  GR is a character who looks cool but writes poorly.

And I love how Jarvis gives Cap a heart-to-heart.

I read this issue probably over a dozen times when I was a kid, and I still love it.
