What, no Secret Empire?

July 17, 2017
No new issues this week, partly because Secret Empire #6 has been delayed until next week, but also because I didn't get to Liverpool this week. We'll have to make do with 2 issues from the past.

Dark Reign continues with AVENGERS: INITIATIVE #25. Norman Osborn tries to get heroes to serve in his Initiative with mixed success - including triggering the formation of the Avengers Resistance.

T Vernon presents IRON MAN (1968) #238 where Iron Man fights Rhino while several subplots bubble underneath.

Invincible Iron Man (1968 series) #239

Invincible Iron Man (1968 series) #239

February 1989
By T: Comments: Part one of two parts. The title is an irreverent pun on the name of the Holy Spirit (a/k/a Holy Ghost) of Christian theology. Iron Man faced two-thirds of this trio of baddies in issues #223-224; Boomerang replaces Beetle whose armor was destroyed by Shellhead during the Armor Wars in issue #227. The Ghost was introduced in issues #219-221.

Captain America (1968 series) #442

August 1995
By Peter: Comments: Dave Hoover, Sandu Florea share the pencils on this issue. The titles for issues #438-443 are lines from the American National Anthem.

Avengers (1964 series) #388

Avengers (1964 series) #388

July 1995
By Peter: Comments: “Taking A.I.M. Part 4 of 4.” Uhh, who is that woman who seems to be the Red Skull's servant who was never seen before? Superia doesn't return until NEW AVENGERS (2010 series) #9-13 in 2011. Meanwhile, Red Skull reappears in CAPTAIN AMERICA #444, a few months after this. Bob Harras and Terry Kavanugh are credited as co-plotters.

Invincible Iron Man (1968 series) #238

Invincible Iron Man (1968 series) #238

January 1989
By T: Comments: Title is a pun on the film TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A. (1985). First appearance of Felix Alvarez who would be around for the next few years. Blizzard was arrested in issue #224. It will be revealed that the Madame Masque appearing since issue #138 and last seen in #204 has been a bio-duplicate; that's one way to correct continuity—though not a good one.

Avengers: The Initiative #25

Avengers: The Initiative #25

June 2009
By Rob: This is Humberto Ramos' last issue - he's pencilled and inked the whole of this Avengers Initiative Disassembled arc. His style is highly distinctive but has never really clicked with me.

Captain America (1968 series) #441

Captain America (1968 series) #441

July 1995
By Peter: Comments: “Taking A.I.M. Part 3 of 4.” Danny Bulanadi, Dave Hoover, Rick Hudson, Rick Hoover, and Keith Williams share inking duties on this issue. The titles for issues #438-443 are lines from the American National Anthem. Final appearance of Diamondback in Cap's title until CAP Vol. 4 #32 in 2004; and then she's gone again for some time—and she spends the issue dressed as Snapdragon.

Avengers (1964 series) #387

June 1995
By Peter: Comments: “Taking A.I.M. Part 2 of 4.” Captain America was injected with an antidote to his paralysis in CAP #440. MODOK was assassinated by Death Adder hired by A.I.M. in CAPTAIN AMERICA #313 (1986) and now he's back. Terry Kavanugh is credited as co-plotter.

U.S.Avengers #7

U.S.Avengers #7

June 2017
By Rob Johnson: Champions of Europe are a new team (which shares absolutely no members with Black Knight's Euroforce from Avengers World who show up in this month's Captain America (Steve Rogers) #18).

Ares was indeed killed/ripped apart during Siege, and appeared in the afterlife since then. But he was brought back to life by the Collector during the latest Contest of Champions series.

Invincible Iron Man (1968 series) #237

Invincible Iron Man (1968 series) #237

December 1988
By T: Comments: The Space Shuttle program is mentioned as “still grounded” in the wake of the Challenger disaster (January 28, 1986); the next mission was in September 1988, after this story was written but before the date on the issue.

Review: Iron Man versus ALIEN! Why not? That is essentially what this is, though the monster has to be more formidable to be a match for Iron Man...

Secret Empire #5

Secret Empire #5

June 2017
By Peter: Comments: Additional art by Rod Reis, Joshua Cassara, Rachelle Rosenberg for the “other Steve Rogers” segment. The cover looks like it should be on the next issue, what with the “mystery weapon” from the last page reveal defeating the Underground.

Infamous Iron Man #9

Infamous Iron Man #9

June 2017
By Rob: Ironheart is in Latveria both here and in her own #8-9 where she contends with Lucia Von Bardas who's taken over the country.

Sharon Carter refers to meeting and arguing with Riri Williams before. This is probably Invincible IM #8 where Riri didn't like learning SHIELD had been watching her for years. But it may have been her #5 where she declined to become a SHIELD trainee.
