The Avengers and Adam Strange (Vs. Thanos!)



Doing this cover brought back good memories of Avengers Annual #7 and Marvel Two In One Annual #2, featuring Earth's Mightiest Heroes battling Thanos alongside The Thing and Spider-Man.  This was back in the day when Annuals were a real treat and felt like the most important stories of the year.  Jim Starlin was of course the perfect artist to depict the epic star spanning tale.

Adam Strange previously met The Avengers in STF #943...

I love the classic Avengers with the Beast before cat phases, Vision with original body, Wanda pre-mad phase, etc. Adam Strange makes so much sense in a star spanning epic story.

I agree, Glenn. Especially as it looks like the Avengers were paralyzed discourtesy of Kanjar Ro's gamma gong! An alliance of convenience, perhaps?

P.S.---Is Jom Starlin any relation to Jim? ;-)

Adam Strange may never have been a top tier character, but I always liked him.

More power to you, Brother Barnes!*

*Or should that be "More barns to you, Brother Power?" ;-)

Cary Comic You got it right the FIRST (Comicbook Puns intended) Time(ly)real Quality "Atlast". Brother Power Bwa-HA-HA-HA-HAW! Before I go a word of wisdom from Mick Rory on the Flash TV Program (second Millennium first Live action iteration): "It says to me rich people buy dumb stuff." What does that have to do with anything that was typed before? That is subject to interpretation, or to put it another way "I just like the way it sounds. (or in this case looks). SIDE NOTE: Has Adam Strange ever teamed up with Adam Warlock/Adam Power (Leader of the Power Lords Action Figures)?

Here's an idea for a cover. The Welcome Back Kotter Sweathogs(DC TV Comic) meet The Future Foundation Class (Marvel).

Or, failing that, how about Capt. America meets the Blue Oyster Cult in...

"Don't Fear The Sleepers!"

Cary Comic Have you been living on the edge so long where the Winds of Limbo Roar? Well I'm not young enough to look @ & far too old to see, so don't blame me for my silence if we're ever going to be free.

What did The Veteran of The Thousand Psychic Wars say @ Jack In The Box?

"Do you have any gray-matter poupon?"

@Carycomic: Close...but no cigar.

Which raises the question; with air pollution laws being what they are, do they even still offer cigars, as prizes, for ringing the high bell at carnivals?
