West Coast Avengers #40 (1989): 1st Misfit

A fill-in issue featuring Night Shift and the first appearance of the barbarian-looking “Misfit.”

A savage doesn’t really fit with the horror theme of the team.   Night Shift fight both the Hawkeye and Mockingbird factions of the team.

I like Night Shift, even though they’re dumb. Mockingbird beats Frankenstein by stepping on a shovel.

It’s not a terrible issue, which makes it better than most of the Englehart run.

Creators: Mark Gruenwald and Al Milgrom
Grade: C-
