Four scans apiece from Mighty Avengers #35 and Thunderbolts #142.

The last issue of Thunderbolts, the team was sent into Asgard to steal Gungir, the Spear of Odin.  The issue ended with the team being confronted by a detachment of the Mighty Avengers (USAgent, Stature, Vision, Amadeus Cho); this month's Mighty Avengers ties together how the group assembled, given that they supposedly disbanded and some of the group were seen elsewhere:

Oh Quicksilver, you're so useless.

In this month's Thunderbolts, they fight:  USAgent takes on Scourge/Nuke, and knocks his mask off:

The coordination between Parker and Slott for this story has been quite good, though it feels a bit odd to have the resolution to the "Walker hearts Osborn" thing happen in a different book.

USAgent gets Gungir from Paladin, but then Sentry brings everything down, and he loses it.


And returning to Mighty Avengers, the main story has Ultron and his army of brides rampage through the Infinite Mansion, pursuing Hank, Jocasta Prime, Ace and One-Eyed Jacqui (the GRAMPA agents from earlier in the series).  They seal themselves inside Hank's original lab, and Ace starts asking about the other door.  Hank says not to go in there, but...

Didn't see that coming.

Maybe not so much in half. I think it looks like he'll get bionic limbs on the left side of his body, though.

21st century surgery should still be able to regraft if he gets to a hospital in time.

You know, even though that's possible in real life I'm not sure I've ever seen it done in comics.

What, the arm, the leg and a chunk of his torso? I know that the US has Healthcare issues at the moment, but I don't think that was EVER possible! :)

Just as they bumped off Nomad when Bucky came along, I think they might be seeking to clean house on "Spare Captain Americas who aren't called Steve or Bucky."

His torso looked okay. It's his arm and leg that got sliced off. With an electrically-charged blade, so it's likely the cuts are cauterized, too.

See what you mean, the sound effect sort of obscured the between-arm-and-leg bit

Not sure about the "electrically charged" spear, it's magical rather than electrical, and presumably enchanted to do serious damage.

I'm a complete idiot when it comes to medical stuff, but wouldn't the wound being cauterized kind of hinder any efforts to re-graft the limb? Nerves burnt away, surface area dead, things like that.

Doesn't his being super-strong (from the Power Broker treatment) complicate things?
