Avengers #327




Reed Richards is quite wrong... a soviet nuclear tech who had been exposed to a seriously unhealthy dose of radiation while trying to prevent the meltdown of Chernobyl, only to find saboteurs on hand, has been brought to Doctor Estivez, the best hematologist in America, for a bone marrow transplant. But when she unhooks the sedative flow in his containment suit, the Avengers are faced with a man who has gained superpowers from the treatments already given him by the Russians but who still thinks he's trying to save Chernobyl.. Those powers include controls over Nuclear forces... clearly this isn't a situation that calls for the talents of Mr. Fantastic, good thing he stayed home

So Rage could answer the call )

Fathers' Day -Cobra Commander and Billy- finale: In peace sons bury their fathers...

In war fathers bury their sons...



I wanted to post both of Billy's deaths but comixology does not have the final part of DDP's World War III storyline. In it Billy is captured by Cobra, and the Commander gives him the, "join or die," option. Billy tries to assassinate his father, but instead takes out a body double, and as Billy dies from a toxin, Cobra Commander gloats how he has won over his own humanity: for he loved Billy once, and now he feels nothing.

Posted below is one page from G.I. Joe America's Elite #34 which shows the ceremony with which that Cobra Commander treats his son's body, and then how the Hama-verse version reacts to news of his son's passing in GI Joe A Real American Hero #172, and #174.
