The Crusader's one of those; what drives him, you might be able to guess from his name.

He first appeared in Thor #330.

There, he had things to say about worshipers of the God of Thunder he'd seen his fellows watching on TV.

They weren't good. )

This issue, the Squadron Supreme fights actual supervillainy for the first time on-camera!

Let's meet the Institute of Evil! )

This is it. Where we get to the 'point' of this series of posts. The time where one character mind-controls another character to get what they want.

Now, about that 'why?' )

Don't worry, that doesn't happen in the comic.

So, this one was tricky to choose pages from, for me. The central crisis is between Al(Nuke) and Joe(Dr. Spectrum) is obviously the emotional heart of the story, but the B-plot opens the story and lays on a little foreshadowing, as well as being a One Perfect Moment between Zarda(Power Princess) and Joe.

So we'll start with that )

He's not kidding.

Anyway, after too long I've managed to get the scans ready for the next few issues, which leads us nicely along the Squadron Supreme's gentle descent into tyranny.

But first, some humanitarianism! )

Let's hear it for them, the Squadron Supreme! The mightiest champions of humanity on now-extant Earth-712, a world blessed and cursed with but a fraction of the superbeings that roil the omniverse!

Twelve of the most spectacular beings in creation, who battle fiends and forces before which an ordinary person would be so much vapour! Though they come to the brink again and again, still they never break the trust their charges have in them!


Well, there was that ONE time... )

Bob Harras wrote AVENGERS #280. Hospitalized after Mr. Hyde tortured him, Jarvis reflects on his time in Avengers Mansion. It included a flashback that explained the "Jarvis was the Crimson Cowl" plot point from the first Ultron story.

Edit: Ultron's "hack" of my post has been fixed.

Hypnobeam! )

Captain America started his career as half living weapon, half propaganda poster boy. Since his return in the "Modern Age," most superheroes and regular Americans followed him almost without question. But Cap, while understanding he's a Living Legend, doesn't like being idolized. As two posters said elsewhere on this board:

[personal profile] stolisomancer: That was right after Heroes Reborn, IIRC, when Cap's return from the dead was verging on making him a pop-culture icon, and it was driving him up the wall.

[personal profile] valtyr: Yeah, it struck me as a bit unfair in Casualties of War when Tony accused him of playing on his image to get support - he's always tried to persuade people not to follow him blindly, and it's one of the reasons I like him. He simultaneously tries to live up to his image while telling everyone not to believe the image unquestioningly.

Of course, *constantly* being questioned is no fun either. Especially by a certain smartmouthed archer...
