The Avengers Meet the Sub-Mariner!

Ah, the Mighty Marvel Universe gets bigger and smaller with every passing issue!

One of the great things about (the early days especially) the Marvel Universe that Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko were creating, was the continuity that was being introduced in the books.  Not just from book to book, but from character to character.  As big and dynamic as the heroes and stories were, they all appeared as part of a bigger-still world than the one they dominated!

Enough of that...we're trying to build up to the premiere of "The Avengers" movie tomorrow!  So in wanton anticipation, here's "The Avengers" issue #3 from 1963.  The Hulk resigned from the team last issue and has now joined forces with Prince Namor, The Sub-Mariner to return and combat our erstwhile team of Thor, Iron Man, Giant-Man and The Wasp.

It's shirts VS. skins the Marvel Age way!

This is pure fun in the way only Stan and Jack could do it!

Talk to you soon!
