AVENGERS #150-151 (1976): Final Steve Englehart Issue

For their big #150, it was another “old order changeth” issue with lots of reprinted material from Avengers #1.  Back then, there weren’t trade paperbacks and reprints everywhere for cheapsies, so it was probably kinda cool to read the Lee/Kirby stuff.  For some readers, I bet it was the first time.

By today’s standards, it was filler.

Actually, by today’s standards you’d never even get to #150.  Everything reboots every couple years.

I like the high issue #s.  Makes me feel like I’m part of something with tradition and history and depth and weight.

This is also the first appearance of the MK V armor for Iron Man.

Here’s the new lineup:

Creators: Steve Englehart and George Perez (#150) and Gerry Conway (#151).
Grade: A
