On a very special episode of The Avengers…That’s basically what this issue is.
It’s a second-part look back at the Avengers teams of the past 149 issues and it’s narrated by none other than amazing News Reporter Sam Reuther (who stole all of his talk bubbles from Electro apparently).
So basically we’re kind of told the history of how a bunch of different Avengers teams (including the “Kooky Quartet of Captain America, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye and Quicksilver) came together and then fell apart.
Thor gives some wacky explanation on why he can no longer be with the team in issue #150 which was basically “I’m a god and you suck.” and then this issue Moondragon, who I guess is also a God-dess basically says the same thing. Oh and Moondragon also makes Patsy Walker, who was basically like the girl version of Archie for like 20 years until Marvel made her into a “superheroine” by giving her one of Tigra’s old cat suits (I guess she wasn’t always a furry kitten lady), leave the Avengers against her will because she needed to “learn to be a heroine at the side of a Goddess”, which sounds to me like the lesbian version of 50 Shades Of Grey.
The BEST part of this comic, is at the end, where right after the newly re-formed Avengers pose in their smiling fists raised in the air “Avengers Assemble” motif, a giant wooden crate explodes and a mentally challenged Wonder Man (who has been dead for a minute) walks out and says (and I quote) “Uhmm-m!”
First off he looks like Mexican Cyclops in that outfit, second off it’s bad enough (or awesome enough depending on how you view it) that he just says “Ummm”, but they hyphenate the “ummmm” and stretch it into “Uhmmm-m!”!!!
I’ve spent the last hour trying to figure out how that changes the sound of the non-word “Um” and haven’t come up with anything except it just makes Wonder Man (who we all know is Wonder Woman with a you-know-what) sound extra stupid.
I give Avengers #151 from good old 1976 3 out of 6 Aaron’s because it’s weird, fun and uhmmm-m! I can’t think of anything else to say!
With great power, comes great utilities bills,
I, Nefarious Mustache (!) have truly been punched in the face quite often!
There is just something about my face which seems to say “Please punch me.”
It is as if my nose has a knuckle magnet buried deep within.
One day, I will have revenge on the face punchers and so I keep a list.
You do not want to be on the list because all of these people will one day pay for their punches to my facial region.
So here, now, I present a list of people who have punched me in the face:
Iron Man – which sucked since his fist is Iron and my face is not.
Captain America – who punched me in the face with his shield which is even tougher than Iron.
Hawkeye – He did one of those fancy from the elbow, back hand punches.
Hulk – He looked at me like he was going to punch me in the face, so I beat him to the punch and did it myself, still he is on the list.
Black Widow – Even though she was punching me in the face, it was worth it to watch her jiggle while she did it.
Nick Fury – He lifted his eye patch and a tiny fist came out…and punched me in the face.
Spider-man – Web punch in the face.
Spider-Woman – Web punch in the face.
Spider-girl – Web punch in the face.
Internet-boy – Web punch in the face.
This concludes part 1 of my “People who have punched me in the face list”. Because I am an artist I typed out this list by slamming the keyboard against my face until the right letters came out.
