Nostalgically revisiting the comics of the 1980s since 2008.
Kinda liked that series, it wasn't bad. But it ran through so many titles!! Loved Byrne's West Coast Avengers during that era.
Yeah it was an interesting concept , having villians fight heroes that they normally wouldnt. Was there any lasting story effects from this event? My favorite issues from it were the Uncanny x-men ones with psylocke vs. wolverine!
I don't remember any real lasting effects from it. I do remember Magneto imprisoning the Red Skull for a period of time and Spidey having cosmic powers for a spell during the story. But i don't think there was anything that stuck. Could be wrong. :-) Yeah, remember those X-Men issues. I used to love Psylocke for kinda obvious reasons as kid.
Yeah, I loved that Magneto vs the Red Skull backup in an issue of Cap. And that Psylocke vs Wolverine was cool with Jim Lee art.
Sure was. liked your post on that Captain America issue :-)So shocked with that news from Denver, my heart goes out to all affected. God bless them...
Terrible, terrible news from Denver.
I have great fondness for this series. did it start in 89 or 90? I agree the Red Skull, Magneto tension was fantastic, and well played. I was big into Spider-Man (still am) back then Cosmic Spider-man was a fun ride. Seeing Spider-man Punch the Hulk into Orbit was a huge moment for me.
Hey Daniel, The Acts of Vengeance kicked off with a cover date of December 1989.
The only comic I had from this crossover was the issue of ASM that Colleen Doran drew. Very '80s, but very cool nonetheless!
