    Final thoughts for the night, really impressed when War Machine went up against Exodus. In the 90s, War Machine was pretty cool, but yeah, he was an Avenger. But here he is, taking it to an X-villain:




    Again, back then, you didn't expect this much of a fight from an Avenger during the 90s. But again, here you go, Rhodes takes it straight to this seemingly unstoppable mutant bad guy.

    For me, that's why I still like the Avengers, because part of me feels they can't pull it off. But they prove me wrong and pull it off!

    Liked it because it showed the "against the odds" nature of the Avengers. Even with the Big Three, combined with the epicness of Black Panther and the firepower of Firestar (come to think of it, a lot of writers forget that Angelica was a key member of the Avengers during this fight), they're hopelessly outnumbered...but they still fight on!
    Ultron Unlimited is definitely a classic, and I'm in agreement with you about it having many awesome moments.
    A personal favorite would be Pym's revelation about Ultron's brain patterns...

    Whether they be West Coast, Uncanny, Mighty, New, or just plain, the Avengers have been earth's mightiest heroes for nearly 60 years! Here, show your appreciation for one of the best teams in the Marvel Universe and comics in general!

    when being an Avenger really meant something. I miss these Avengers. It was really a great team.

    Strange, although, in general, I'm against various Avengers teams (it cheapens the concept, IMHO), the WCA seemed diferent. It was not as if they were another team, but an extension of the main one. Indeed during much of it's run, WCA was my favorite book.

    Peace

    Hickman, Waid and Aaron's runs, in their own ways, all were based around the idea that the Avengers is an all-star book. I would like to see them symbolically kick the Big Three off the team, use characters like Black Panther and Captain Marvel and maybe even Spider-Man to provide the star power, and bring the B-listers and the classic Avengers mythology back to the book.

    It won't happen, of course. But 2021 is a good year to hope for better things that may not happen.
    Often times, they're a combination of:

    1) Big Guns (Cap, Iron Man, Thor)
    2) second-string mainstays (Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, Vision)
    3) Whichever second-string characters the writer wants to play around with (Firestar, Beast, Luke Cage, and about a million others)

    This reminds me of watching War Machine on the 90's cartoons.

    Except that the color of his armor is much darker (if we're only talking about the improved 2nd season, of course)...


    War Machine - Season 2
    (Light-grayish colored armor)



    IMHO, the animation greatly improved. But for some reason, Rhodey's armor became this weird color.



    War Machine - Season 1
    (Extremely dark-colored armor)



    The animation was horrendous, but the one thing they got right was Rhodey's armor.

    LOVED Dave Ross and Tim Dzon's art on WCA. So powerful. IMHO, a vastly underrated art team.

    Agreed. I don't know for the life of me, why Dave Ross didn't become a major superstar.

    The exceptions being Wonder Man, Julia Carpenter, Living Lightning, Hercules and Starfox. Interesting.

    I remember having to put the book down, and let the moment breathe after Hank's revelation, lol.

    King in Black so far has better Avengers moments than the recent run of Avengers...

    Man, this issue broke me, I await Aaron leaving this book.
