To read Avengerous Tales 2.34, go here!
Before we dive in, I should explain something about Issue 136—it’s a reprint. See, during the 1970s, Marvel’s creators seemed to have trouble meeting their deadlines from time to time. When that happened, rather than delaying the book, Marvel would usually print a replacement story that had absolutely nothing to do with whatever ongoing storyline was happening. In this case, however, they’re reprinting a story from Amazing Adventures #12, originally published in 1972, rather than giving us a new story.
Either way, it was kind of jarring and irritating. Still, since it’s in an Avengers comic and features both an Avenger and a future Avenger, I’m going to review it anyway.
