AVENGERS (1998) (#0-84, 500-503) (MARVEL) #82 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Avengers (1997) #82
"Once An Invader Part 1 of 4" is written by Chuck Austen with art by Scott Kolins. What is the purpose of a super-hero team? At one time, the Avengers were a force dedicated to battling the foes of the United States and its allies. That's the mission the team inherited from their World War II predecessors, the Invaders. But the rapidly changing world and geo-political sentiment has turned the Avengers into a multi-national team with a global view despite the fact that most of them are Americans and their headquarters is in New York. Sometimes, this internationalist mandate can even put the Avengers at odds with the U.S. government. Such are the complicated times in which we live.

But now, former U.S. Agent John Walker is recruiting super-humans to re-establish the Invaders, the team that fought fascist tyranny overseas during the 1940s. With the new Spitfire and Union Jack on his side, this new Captain America cuts a bloody swathe through a hostile MidEast nation in search of one man; the immortal Mark Todd, a.k.a. the Blazing Skull. Meanwhile, when the Avengers try to dedicate a new memorial to slain civilian Kelsey Leigh, the new Captain Britain (who is, in fact, secretly Kelsey) explodes with anger. Accusing the Avengers of failing in their mission to eradicate evil by being too easy on criminals, Captain Britain storms off in search of less ambiguous comrades. Meanwhile, Hawkeye and the Wasp spark up a forbidden romance!
