Jarvis is awesome

Greetings True Believers!

Do you know who is made of awesome? Edwin Fucking Jarvis, that's who.

These scans are from Avengers #280. Jarvis is recovering from the vicious assault he suffered from the hands of Mr. Hyde (occurred when the Masters of Evil III invaded the Avengers mansion).

Jarvis has a decision to make about staying with the Avengers.


The doctor informs Jarvis that he might also have brain damage from the torture Hyde inflicted on him.

Tony arrives.

Jarvis wonders if he'll ever feel safe again and since it's Jarvis, he's more worried about the Avengers then himself.

Flashback time: Jarvis thinks of the first time he met the Avengers. Tony actually had a full staff but they freaked and quit at the sight of the heroes, only the big J stuck it out.

He meets the rest of them and fondly remembers Jan/Hank before their relationship went south.

The original Avengers move on but Cap and his Kooky Quartet hit the scene.

Jarvis thinks of Avengers past and present, how Ultron brainwashed him into betraying the team and the different friendships he's made. Including with one synthozoid.

Jarvis thinks some more and admits his worry and fear and thinks that the Avengers mansion is no place for a "Gentleman's Gentleman".

But then he thinks of all the challenges individual Avengers have overcome, Tony and his boozing, Cap building a new life in the present, Jan and Hank becoming friends again.

That is Edwin Jarvis. Founding Avenger and Earth's Mightiest Butler!

"The next time Wanda and Pietro ask me out, I think I'll accept!"

Well... that's very... progressive of you, Cap.

I love this sort of story, it's the sort of thing that makes Astro City so much fun. And of course, Jarvis is awesome

This post fills me with happy. Who's scripting and doing art, here?

Came here to make the Astro City reference myself. It's very much like it, in a good way.

Inking is by Kyle Baker, for sure. GCD says the pencils were Bob Hall, and the script by Bob Harris.

Was the relaxed, literary buff Vision ever shown much in the comics? I think I'm more interested in the downtime of the heroes at this point than I am in how hard they can punch Cthulu.

This is exceedingly awesome :)

Was Jarvis's "90% vision loss" ever revisited? This is the first I've ever heard of it, and I like to think I know some obscure comics trivia! Was he ever offered a magical or super-science cure? Did he just will himself to have better vision? Or has he been half-blind ever since (making everything he's done since then even more badass!)?

And to think, he would've been Peter Parker's stepdad.

There really ought to have been Marvel/DC crossovers featuring Jarvis/Alfred, J.Jonah Jameson/Perry White, Nick Fury/Amanda Waller, etc.

He wore an eyepatch for quite some time after that. I do not remember how or if his healing (if it in fact did heal) was ever addressed directly.

Nick Fury has been alive for the better part of a century. He's fought in two official wars and dozens of secret ones. He's matched wits with the most devious minds on Earth and beyond. He's the spymaster of a world that fears and hates pretty much everyone, and he might be the most dangerous person in it.

Amanda Waller would eat him alive.

I always loved Jarvis. No matter it's the thing that I dislike the most about the Iron Man movies despite how much I love them as a whole, having Jarvis replaced by some lame generic boring AI called Jarvis as well... Just because they feared the Batman/Alfred allusion..

... is it wrong that I now can't help but see Jarvis in full pirate regalia?
