With Friends Like These: The Best Avengers vs Marvel Covers
So here's a rundown of the best Avengers vs Marvel covers, right to number one. Starting off, the three title clashes between Cap's team and the Justice League-ish Squadron Supreme.
Avengers vol1 #141 ( by Gil Kane), Avengers vol3 #6 (by George Perez). For the remaining candidates, including number one follow on through...
Avengers vol1 #93 (vs The Fantastic Four by Neal Adams), Avengers vol1 #350 (vs The Starjammers by Steve Epting), Avengers vol1 #53 (vs The X-Men by John Buscema), and the number one champion?
AVENGERS Vol 1 #3 (vs The Hulk and Sub-Mariner by Jack Kirby) Not only is it a sweet angle done by the late, great Jack Kirby, there's something to be said for the days of Marvel where Namor would just show up and pick a fight with that title's hero.
Plus as half of the most iconic Defenders line-up, it gets even cooler when you picture your perspective as that of the Silver Surfer or Dr Strange!
