AVENGERS #380-383 (1994-1995)

Might a new logo make Bob Harras’ run on Avengers any better? Nope. What about adding Mike Deodato to the art?

Yeah, a little.

Quicksilver finds out that Bova is sick and goes to Wundagore to pay his respects. He brings Crystal because, you know, they’re married.

While there, they meet High Evolutionary. After some confrontational arguing, they agree to visit Bova together.


After that, something important happens but honestly the story is so jumbled and boring that it’s hard to follow. But it involves Arides.

And, thankfully, it wraps up a Kree storyline that has been going on for far too long.

Meanwhile, Black Widow notices that Captain America is losing his powers (it’s happening in his own comic).


And for some reason, that makes her hot and horny.

Also, Black Knight–who recently went to another dimension (for no real reason)–is haunting a mirror in Avengers Mansion.

These are Bob Harras’ last issues, and Deodato’s first. It’s an arc that mostly stars Quicksilver and Crystal. I note that Harras also needed to fill half of issue #380 with pin-ups and a chunk of #381 with a back-up feature. He goes out with a whimper, not a bang.

The filler pin-ups aren’t necessarily bad, but they are filler.
