AVENGERS #110-111 (1973): Black Widow joins

First, some soapy stuff. Quicksilver has found true love.

But he forbids Wanda from dating Vision.

Obviously, she doesn’t listen to him.

This makes Iron Man think about the meaning of love. 

Then, Wanda and Pietro lead the team to X-Men mansion, where they find the X-Men all unconscious after having been attacked by Magneto. Interesting, uncommon choice: To show the aftermath of the battle, but not the battle itself.

This arc has a pretty dang creepy forgotten power set: Magneto can control people’s minds using the iron in their blood.  (a) That’s dumb.  And, more importantly, (b) That’s gross.  Scarlet Witch is your daughter, dude.

He forces an AvX fight.

I don’t know what’s cooler about this panel.  Is it Iceman being more like Sandman with his sledghammer hands or the sound effect?  Or is it Black Panther face raping Iceman?

During the battle, Captain America surfs on Thor’s back.

At the very end, there’s more on the Hawkeye subplot with Widow and Daredevil.

And Black Widow joins.
