Avengers No. 683

Lightning arrives at the Avengers Auxiliary HQ and he looks great doing it too.

Jarvis, who in this issue is treated the way he should be - as the most beloved Avenger - is in the hospital. Unfortunately the hospital has problems.

These ghosts are solid; as the Beast can attest.

Ok, two things: First, there is a Pyramoid just outside the hospital that has to be shut down by touching it. Unfortunately, touching the Pyramoid will also kill the toucher. Second, someone has to use Pym Particles to get into Jarvis and cure him. The original plan was for the Wasp to see to Jarvis and for Hank McCoy to make the ultimate sacrifice but . . .

Nadia Van Dyne takes matters into her own hands; literally dooming herself; much to Henry McCoy's dismay.

Here is Nadia about to touch the Pyramoid.

Nadia didn't die but the Pyramoid remains unstopped.

Baffled, Nadia returns to the hospital and uses her powers to shrink people so that she can fly them off to safety.

Hank McCoy makes it into the vicinity of Jarvis' brain where electrical synaps discharges from Jarvis' neurons become deadly electrical bolts that the Beast must evade. He finally makes it into Jarvis' the core where the Beast is confronted by the fact that Jarvis was an Avenger from the earliest days.

I'm a big Beast fan so I was a bit disappointed when at a critical moment the Beast drops the cure.

I'm really disappointed when the Beast has to be rescued by the Wasp; who promptly administers the cure herself.

Oh Hank, not your finest moment.

And now we have the arrival of Voyager.


Initially welcomed by both Avengers as one of their own until the now recovered Jarvis voices a warning.


As the issue ends our three stalwarts are left with weighty questions.
