So, considering the passing of one of the greatest comics legends today, I thought we could do with some levity.

One of early Marvel's greatest and most enduring charms was that the creators themselves were more than just guys who would occasionally break the fourth wall to explain a plot point (miss you too, Mr. Kane), they were wild characters that were as entertaining to read about as the superheroes they wrote about. Here we have a three page story where Stan, John Buscema, and Larry Lieber try to create a story for Spider-Man.

They saved Manhattan too.

They did it on a day in September, when the astrological cartel's army stole over the island before the dawn's early light could.

The men who'd taken Zodiac's coin cut the island off from New York and took its populace hostage.

Their leader, their supreme commander Aries, made their work known to America. He claimed that no rescue would come from outside, because of the force field that now surrounded the island, or from within- because the four Avengers who were there'd been captured by his men.

The lives that he held, he said, could only be purchased with a billion-dollar ransom. If none was presented within twenty-four hours, all who weren't Zodiac would be liquidated.

There seemed to be no one who could gainsay him- the other Avengers were out of town, along with the Fantastic Four. Spidey was in Queens, and had his aunt's health to take care of.

And the Man Without Fear?

He was being held at gunpoint. )

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! )
