THE AVENGERS #61 and DOCTOR STRANGE #178 (1969)

Not a great issue, but do have this brief sequence that reflects some of the greatness of Roy Thomas’ run.  We learn about Vision here, first of all, which is always cool.   He’s solar powered!

Also, it’s Black Panther who gets it–Black Panther is a scientist and a techie with smarts comparable to Tony Stark.  Who else was writing about black men in mainstream culture in this way?  Nobody, I think.

Storywise, the Dr. Strange story involves Black Knight and … No.  Just no.

Creators: Roy Thomas and John Buscema (Avengers), Thomas and Gene Colan (Dr. Strange)

Grade: B-, because the Dr. Strange stuff is just bad But this run of Avengers is damn fine.
