  1. I used to own all these with the Jim Starlin artwork and they were great. I had the Iron Fist as well that Gil Kane drew. Good stuff and happy to see ti once again.

  3. Hi Groovy One!
    Man I loved this issue as a kid & still do today. Midnight was one of my all time favorite villains. I was always hoping Marvel was going to bring him back. Team him up with the dead Copperhead villain, the Punisher, Paladin & say Ghost Rider. They would have been real Avengers! Hey maybe they could have called them the Justice INC, the Equalizers or the A-Team? I pitdy Da Fool, dat don't like my ideas.


    I was really happy when Roy Thomas did that Legion of Dead story line in the Avengers. It was great seeing the original Wonderman & Human Torch back in those issues as well. Thanks for posting another great comic I no longer own. SOB!! Tears!
