The Avengers #165-166 feature all-out action against an immensely powerful foe who craves even more power, and defeating such a menace will require nothing less than the teamwork of Earth’s mightiest heroes. The problem—or another problem, rather—is the internal tension that puts the Avengers off their A-game. It wouldn’t be a proper Marvel comic without feuding heroes, now would it?
It’s nothing deep, but it sure is fun. The cliffhanger at the end of #165 really lets you know that action is about to hit full-throttle. The classic art by John Byrne doesn’t hurt either, nor does the good old-fashioned script by Jim Shooter. And being a classic comic, it’s great for kids!
