    "Today the Avengers Die!" Script by Bill Mantlo. Pencils by Don Newton. Inks by Jack Abel and Joe Rubinstein. Cover by Don Newton and Joe Rubinstein. At the end of Iron Man 114, the powerful Arsenal disappeared without a trace. In the meantime Earth's Mightiest Heroes have been too busy fighting other super-villains to spend time looking for the awesome creature. But there are several overlooked clues that could pinpoint Arsenal's whereabouts! First, rumors have persisted for years that the United States built doomsday robots to continue fighting World War II in the event that the U.S. mainland suffered catastrophic losses. Second, Iron Man's late father, Howard Stark, worked on several high-tech secret projects for the federal government during the war. And third, the Avengers' headquarters was the former townhouse of Howard and Maria Stark. Very interesting! Is it possible...could it be possible...that Arsenal is hiding somewhere in the bowels of Avengers Mansion? Wow! It's a super showdown...the mighty Arsenal vs. the mighty Avengers! Can Iron Man lead the Avengers to victory against one of his father's greatest creations? Win or lose, heartbreak will rule the day for the golden avenger. A sensational story! Cameo appearance by Peter Gyrich. Flashback cameos by Howard Stark and President Harry Truman. Avengers Lineup: Beast, Captain America, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Scarlet Witch, Thor, Vision, Wonder Man, and Yellowjacket. (Notes: This underrated annual was Bill Mantlo's best Avengers story. Arsenal returns to action in Incredible Hulk 282.) Cover price $0.60.

    Avengers (1963 1st Series) Annual 10 CGC 8.0

    1st app. Rogue, Madelyne Pryor

    Paper: White

    Label #3785389008

    Starts Later today

    First appearance of Rogue and Madelyne Pryor in "By My Friends Betrayed!" Spider-Woman, X-Men, Carol Danvers, and New Brotherhood of Mutants guest star. Script by Chris Claremont. Pencils by Michael Golden. Inks by Armando Gil. Cover by Al Milgrom. This action-packed annual has got it all, true believers: the first appearance of Rogue, the spectacular art of Michael Golden, the tragic return of Carol Danvers, and the stupendous struggle between the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and the mighty Avengers! Following the events of Uncanny X-Men #142, Mystique & her New Brotherhood of Evil Mutants attempt to break four of their members out of Ryker's Island prison! After Rogue and Mystique take down Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor, the rest of the Avengers and Spider-Woman catch up to the villains, and the epic clash erupts! Woven in and around the frantic action at Ryker's Island is the heartbreaking story of Carol Danvers' return to Earth. Her life has fallen apart since leaving for Limbo with Marcus Immortus in Avengers #200, and now, stripped of her powers and memories, Carol begins the long road to recovery. And the first step is an emotional confrontation with her former teammates! Notes: Marvel Super-Heroes #11 (Fall 1992) fills in the details of Carol Danvers' life between Avengers #200 and Avengers Annual #10. The Thing stars in a one-page Hostess ad, "A Lesson to Be Learned!" This issue was reprinted in 1993 in the trade paperback: The Greatest Battles of the Avengers. 48 pages. Cover price $0.75.
