Axel-In-Charge: Recapping "Avengers Standoff's" Major Developments, Preparing for "Punisher"
All month long we will feature brand-new Cool Avengers and X-Men Comic Book Moments in celebration of their fiftieth anniversaries this month. Here is an archive of all the past cool comic moments that I’ve featured so far over the years.
Today we look at Avengers #166 and how the Vision figured out to stop Count Nefaria…
In this story by Jim Shooter, John Byrne and Pablo Marcos, the more-than-normally empowered Count Nefaria has been kicking the collective ass of the Avengers for the last issue or so (I previously featured the awesome cliffhanger of Avengers #165 as a cool comic book moment, where Thor shows up to enter the fray). The Vision had been in a coma due to an attack by Ultron a few issues earlier but Yellowjacket got him out of the coma so that he could help in the Avengers being slaughtered.
The Vision is a bit out of sorts having just awoken from his coma (he is more robotic than usual)
The fight continues for a while but Nefaria does not seem to be slowing down…
What an awesome visual by Byrne and Marcos! What a great story by Shooter, Byrne and Marcos! One of the top Avengers battles of all-time and what a way to finish the bad guy off!!
