    Avengers (1963 1st Series) Canadian Price Variant 255

    Canadian edition with $.75 cover price. "Two From The Heart!" Plot by Jim Shooter. Script by Alan Zelenetz. Pencils by Mark Bright. Inks by Brett Breeding and helpers. Cover by Brett Breeding. Since her difficult divorce several issues ago, Janet Van Dyne has been moving on her with life and enjoying her role as chairperson of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. And perhaps now it's time to move on with her love life as well. After meeting at a high society party, Tony Stark and the Wasp begin dating. Is that really a good idea considering the golden avenger's secret identity? Captain America doesn't think so! And that kicks off a series of three very uncomfortable conversations! First, Tony Stark and Cap, then Iron Man and Thor, and finally Shell-head and the Wasp! Everything started with good intentions, but is everything going to end that way? Meanwhile, Ant-Man makes a secret visit to Ryker's Island to talk with Hank Pym. However, the former avenger doesn't want to be sprung from prison. He plans to clear his name the right way! Cameo appearances by Egghead and Jim Rhodes. Avengers Lineup: Captain America, Hawkeye, Iron Man, She-Hulk, Thor, and the Wasp. (Notes: This cover is among a trio of Marvel covers in the early 1980's that featured super-heroes behind bars. See Amazing Spider-Man 219 and Captain America 260 also.) 32 pages Cover price $0.75.
