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

Plot Synopsis: Avengers (1997) #84
"Once an Invader Part 3" is written by Chuck Austen and drawn by Scott Kolins. The Avengers face off against their overzealous counterparts: the Invaders, a revived super-team from the 1940s that includes John Walker (once U.S. Agent, now calling himself Captain America again); the Sub-Mariner; a new, female Human Torch, the Blazing Skull, Union Jack and Spitfire. Advocating pro-active action against hostile governments, the Invaders march into the Middle East nation of Mazikhandar and begin shooting. Responding to a call from the U.N., the Avengers rush to the scene to stop the violence.

Backed by the war-machines of Atlantis, the Invaders cut a bloody swathe through the country to the capitol city itself. While the Blazing Skull tosses tanks around and "Captain America" bellows jingoistic battle-cries, Union Jack and Spitfire infiltrate the presidential palace of Mazikhandar's terrorist-ruler and effect regime change all on their own. The warfare in the streets threatens the lives of innocent civilians, however, and the Avengers find themselves battling super-heroes from their own country and its allies to save women and children caught in the crossfire. On the steps of the capitol city's main hall, all political arguments are rendered moot, however, with a quick squeeze of the trigger of an automatic pistol. The story continues in Invaders #0.
