AVENGERS #183-184: Super Absorbent! (1979)

When I first got this issue I thought those trash bags Beast is holding looked like watermelons.  I love this issue, and a few others like it, because they’re all about Avengers being “regular” people.  But #183 and 184 are also two of my favorite issues for another reason: The two parter where they fight Crusher Creel, The Absorbing Man.
Absorbing Man is a Thor foe, and so it makes sense that he’s tough enough to take on the full team.  He’s also a lot like Hulk in this story, in that he just wants to be left alone.

Creators: Another great Michelinie/Byrne production.

Grade: A-
