This arc debuted a new, government-mandated roster: Captain America, Iron Man, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Beat, Wasp and, controversially, the Falcon. The Falcon’s appointment, to comply with government minority opportunity policies, was a move that rankled both the characters and fans. An old gypsy shaman propelled Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver to Eastern Europe to explore their past. Ms. Marvel officially joined the team to replace Wanda and Wonder Man soon subbed in for Iron Man. Hawkeye lingered ...more
After reading Grant Morrissons "New X-Men" I'm now reading up to "Avengers Disassembled" to start my first exposure to the (supposedly very entertaining) Marvel comics of the modern age (2004 and after) and all its events including House of M, Civil War, Planet Hulk, Hickmans Fantastic Four, Straczynskis Thor etc.

Nights of Wundagore contains stories about the origins of the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. Both new characters for me, and this was a very decent introduction. The history of the char

You can't get much better than the John Byrne run on the Avengers from the 80's. If not for three issues at the beginning that were not written by David Michelinie (an outstanding writer) and drawn by Byrne then this would be a five star review. The first story (in my edition but maybe not every edition)is by Steve Gerber and it was a focus on the Beast and was a strange tale that had no business being in the Avengers OR a comic book. Then was a very boring two-parter with Bloodhawk, one of thos ...more

I'm always surprised at these bits of legendary Marvel lore that seem so momentous when they are constantly referred to, but when you finally read the stories, they are so much less so. The secrets of the history of the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver! The High Evolutionary's mysterious experiments! But here it's just a chat with a talking cow and a fight with a run of the mill demon. Zzzzzz.
You can really tell the people who made this story were hardcore fans before becoming professionals since it seems mainly designed to resolve conflicts in continuity that only fans would notice, specifically the origins of the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. It attempts to reconcile contradictory details about their background while connecting the two characters to other unrelated events and characters in Marvel making them part of the grander tapestry of the Marvel Universe while throwing in a p ...more

The story starting off really good with the governmental enforced change in the Avengers roster, and the search by Wanda and Pietro for details of their past - then very last issue a change in writer(?), and I had not got a clue, what is was about which is what happens when you try to cram 2 issues into 1. Great artwork by Byrne who was the herald of the British invasion in comics.
This volume collects issues #181–187 and gives us the full origin story of the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver (as well as a nice interlude where the Avengers face off the Absorbing Man).

Apart from this main overarching story concerning the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver's origin, there are also problems involving the Avengers reclaiming their security clearance from the US government, not to mention their less than co-operative government liaison, Henry Gyrich, shaking up the membership roster.

Un ciclo che meriterebbe davvero di essere recuperato anche in Italia, non solo perché è con queste storie che terminò la corsa dei Vendicatori all'epoca Corno, pubblicati su albi introvabili già all'epoca, a spizzichi e bocconi (tipo 19 pagine divise in tre tronconi su tre albi diversi) ma soprattutto perchè è una gran bella saga, ottimamente disegnata e ben sceneggiata e presenta delle sottotrame importanti.

Simple, clear and clean superhero fun with good, clear and crisp art. Not bad but a bit outdated.

Comics Marvel de alto nivel. Bien escritos, con subtramas bien llevadas, efectivos ejercicios de retrocontinuidad. Michelinie y Gruenwald están inspirados y sin hacer obras de arte, atrapan de una al lector en apenas un par de números. El dibujo de John Byrne, a pesar del baile de entintadores, se defiende por sí solo que da gusto.Mucho ojo con el arribo de Bill Mantlo a la serie, el malogrado autor da muestras de su inigualable talento para el proceso interno de los personajes. Muy buenos cómic ...more
It was pretty good.
Good backstory about Wanda and Pietro. The racism about Falcon being a token member is also interesting. The art work is getting slightly better.

Nice compilation of John Byrne's work on Avengers. Ala Essentials, but in a small size! A little hard to read....
