Vision lacks any shading, as it should be when he is
intangible.


***

You can tell Byrne rushed this one. He didn't even
put shading on the Vision.

I was actually reading a reprint of X-men # 1 today, and it amazes me how more and more I keep believing that John Byrne is Kirby's total peer, talent-wise.

****

I easily surpass Kirby in the pure drawing department --- what I lack is the sheer scope of his imagination.

Thanks for the answer, Ian.

drew the Iron Man book (although teaming with JRjr was one of my dream
creative teams). There's just something so "right" about a JB Iron Man!

Agreed! But only if it is the classic red-and-gold armor. The current suit is terrible, and even JR jr. couldn't make it look good in the latest issue of The Eternals. Ugh!

Great pic of a classic Avengers line-up in action, JB.

This gets me thinking: is Nefaria on the short list of toughest enemies faced by the Avengers? (IMHO, yes)

Corollary: who is the single most powerful enemy the team has battled?

Awesome pic JB... I've always loved your take on the Avengers... Thor in particular.

I agree -- I always consider Nefaria to be one of the Avengers' toughest foes.  I would also rank Graviton up there, too (and I still vividly remember Avengers # 158 where he first appeared) -- he seemed to me like he could turn out to be one of THE big-time villains.  I mean, heck, Magneto only controlled magnetism -- Graviton controlled gravity.

That's a tough one -- Michael Korvac, Nefaria, Graviton, and Ultron all come to mind, but it's tough to say which would qualify as the #1 threat for the Avengers.  Given that Korvac was basically a god, I'd narrow it down to Ultron and Nefaria (Graviton seemed to have something of a "glass jaw" compared to Ultron and Nefaria, IIRC), and I think that Ultron and Nefaria have been responsible for the biggest battles that the Avengers have had to face.

Are there any others?
