Review: Avengers (1963-1996) #6

Avengers (1963-1996) #6 Avengers (1963-1996) #6 by Stan Lee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Baron Zemo and the Masters of Evil attack New York City, and their weapon of choice is….glue?

Lots of fun goofiness in this one. My favorite bit was Cap and Giant Man street surfing on a hunk pavement behind a tow truck driven by Iron Man after they get glued to the ground.

Random Observations :

• Thor refuses to keep the Black Knight’s winged horse after capturing him because even though BK is going to jail, it still technically belongs to him. That brings up a whole bunch of legal questions regarding supervillain property rights.

• If Baron Zemo got his mask accidentally glued to his face years ago, how is drinking or eating anything?

• This ‘Teen Brigade’ thing with Rick Jones and his buddies is annoying the hell out of me. We’ve already seen the US military and the UN cooperating with the Avengers. Why would they need a bunch of punk teenagers hanging around?
