Avengers #84 (1971)

It’s more Arkon, which must make John Buscema happy. 

Frankly, every time we see him, Arkon morphs more into Conan.

Having learned that his magical ebony blade is possessed again, Black Knight goes to Arkon’s dimension to destroy it.  But it’s a trick.

Scarlet Witch has ominous dreams about it.

Why is she asleep in her nightie but everyone else has costumes on?

The team goes after Arkon to save Black Knight, and finds Enchantress.

She seduces Black Knight.

The whole team is captured and put in Arkon prison.

Why not glass tubes?

With Panther’s help, the teams busts out.

And proves to Arkon that Enchantress duped him.

After the fun, Scarlet Witch reaffirms her position (from Avengers #75) that she does not love Arkon and won’t stay there with him and be his queen.

And Mike Barr gets another letter printed.
