Thor thinks the new Avengers are brash and arrogant, when really, the only one who is, is Hawkeye. It’s not fair to Pietro and Wanda, to be painted with the same brush as Hawkeye….I thought you were better than this Thor.
I do love how at last count, Wanda and Pietro are up to 3 fathers, each with an angst-ridden backstory.
Because you can never pack in too many daddy issues. When in doubt, add another daddy.
Avengers #181 (1979)
Yes, although Magneto is the awful dad they’re currently stuck with, people forget all their other dads were kinda awful in their own rights. And also, they went through three sets of parents, and as far as I know, in each set, the mom is dead.
I may have said this before, but what I loved the most about this scenario is that when Pietro says ” I can keep four girls busy dancing at the same time” I thought he was using a figure of speech. It’s really funny when it turns out he meant it LITERALLY.
I wish 616-Pietro would do this, just once…to make Gambit feel his position as the team sexy guy is threatened.
Quicksilver just beat Hawkeye in a contest…you know I think Quicksilver might be the most powerful in this team. Hawkeye is a regular human, Captain America has slightly enhanced strength (as is my understanding of his power set), and Scarlet Witch’s power are unpredicatble.
The Swordsman vanishes right when Cap America was going to fight him man to man.
Quicksilver’s statement that Steve and Clint are too hot-tempered to be leader so he should be leader instead is hilarious in hindsight. But back then, that sounded semi-plausible. Compared to Clint, Pietro was the more level-headed one.
