Black Racer and The Avengers



There have been rumors of an Avengers member or two being killed off in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, and with so many characters involved, there are plenty to choose from.  Most of the main players are coming to the ends of their contracts, so this might be a way for someone like Chris Evans or Robert Downey Jr. to bow out of the franchise.  Then again, The Vision is powered by one of the Infinity Gems, so he well may be in for a rough time when Thanos comes looking for it.  Or maybe Hawkeye, who we all though was going to get it in Age of Ultron, will finally meet his maker.

And may the Black Racer never chase you down!

Haven't all those Avengers characters already died and been resurrected at some point? I don't think they fear the reaper, he's just a nuisance to them.

Ross said...

Yeah, they got right back on the ski-lift, so to speak.

Happy New Year!!!

David Welsh- At the time the Avengers had that line-up and those costumes, I don't think ANY of the characters pictured had died and been resurrected yet.

Which brings me to my question- where does that Avengers image come from? It's obviously Kirby. I can see that it likely takes place sometime between AVENGERS #36 and #47, placing it in 1967, probably. However, it doesn't come from any of the AVENGERS covers during that time. Was it a guest appearance? A poster? Something else?

You know who I'd like to see involved in a three-for-all? The Silver Surfer and the Scarlet Skier vs. the Black Racer!

Happy New Year, Ross. :-)

Ah- I should have thought of Marvel Triple Action. Kirby drew a great Hawkeye- I wish he could have drawn him more.

Alaric Shapli said...

Just to add- I'm guessing it was a reprint of AVENGERS #45- I can almost see the Super Adaptoid there...
