Today’s Super Comics — The Avengers #165-166 (1977)

Avengers_Vol_1_165The Avengers vs. Superman! Well, okay—the Avengers vs. Count Nefaria with Superman-like powers!

The Avengers #165-166 feature all-out action against an immensely powerful foe who craves even more power, and defeating such a menace will require nothing less than the teamwork of Earth’s mightiest heroes. The problem—or another problem, rather—is the internal tension that puts the Avengers off their A-game. It wouldn’t be a proper Marvel comic without feuding heroes, now would it?

It’s nothing deep, but it sure is fun. The cliffhanger at the end of #165 really lets you know that action is about to hit full-throttle. The classic art by John Byrne doesn’t hurt either, nor does the good old-fashioned script by Jim Shooter. And being a classic comic, it’s great for kids!
