Human Torch guest stars on the splash, but this is really an Avengers team-up.
It starts with another instance of the Thing’s ongoing poker game.
Iron Man thinks Beast cheats, so he talks to him like an old dad. “Hank McCoy! You ruined this game on purpose!”
What interrupted the game is the dramatic portion of the issue. Annihilus, Blastaar, and Super-Adaptoid team up against Thing and The Avengers.
I think it’s the first appearance of Mrs. Blastaar.
Marvel did a great house ad for this issue.
