There, Captain America'd brought the Zodiac killers pursuing him in hopes that the God of Thunder could handle them with Mjolnir.

Unfortunately, the events of Thor: Worldengine'd depowered the hammer and made the god mortal.

Fortunately, the Enchantress'd rigged the place with wall-mounted guns.

They spat " relatively non-fatal " rubber bullets into the men of the Zodiac, bringing them down.

Then they powered down- Cap exposited that that was because of the power-sapping forcefield the Zodiac'd said they'd put up over Manhattan.

The Enchantress, alone with one of that lot's subdued, got him to reveal where they'd come in from.

In particular, I took a closer look at Mike Deodato Jr.'s artwork that he provided for many of the issues. When the guy was good, he pretty dang good and drew some very nice pieces.

However, he was off his game, he drew some of the more impressive looking Escher girls and barbie dolls in comics that I've seen in this modern age. As such, let's take a trip down memory lane and highlight some of his more... sillier and questionable depictions of the female characters.
