Judgment Day (The Avengers #90) (1971)


Taking a broad historical overview of the Marvel Universe by reading through the major events and crossover events in order. (Thanks to The Marvel Event Timeline at https://comicbookreadingorders.com/marvel/event-timeline/ and Marvel Unlimited)

Writer: Roy Thomas

Artist: Sal Buscema

A bit of a sloppy follow up to the last exciting ish. Dejected after failing to stop Intergalactic Sentry 459 from absconding with Captain Marvel,  The Vision, The Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Rick Jones return to Avengers Mansion just in time to view an emergency message from Goliath. 

He has gone north to Alaska on a mission to back up Yellowjacket and The Wasp and implores his teammates to catch up, which of course they do. 

No need to dress for the weather, apparently.

And who do they discover but…Intergalactic Sentry 458 and his master, Ronan the Accuser. Isn’t that convenient? 

They’re on hand for the initiation of Project Atavus, which will set back the evolution of the upstart human race before they can challenge the Kree. 

Something about the design of the Sentry brings out the Kirby in Buscema.
