AVENGERS (1998) (#0-84, 500-503) (MARVEL) #51 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Avengers (1997) #51
"Prisoners: A Love Story" The love between Wonder Man and the Scarlet Witch is a long story, fraught with chapters of shame, pain and passion. But never before today, was it written with such nobility. Enslaved and imprisoned by Kang, the Conqueror, two of Earth's mightiest heroes try to eke out some small measure of comfort in each other's company while the world falls under the time lord's heel. While Wanda cares for the ill and dying, Wonder Man dreams of escape. But when someone does manage to get past Kang's guards, they are captured and two of their friends are executed as penance.

In the face of daily death or life in a world ruled by a megalomaniac, Simon Williams and Wanda Maximoff discover that the passion that had drawn them together in the past, despite the feelings of Wanda's husband the Vision, has faded. And now, the love they feel is that of deep, abiding friendship. But in their reinvention of their love, the Avengers again dedicate themselves to escape from Kang's super-prison. A desperate plan is hatched and Wonder Man gives himself as sacrifice. Or does he? The Scarlet Witch's hex power combined with Wonder Man's ionic energy form is enough to win freedom secretly for one Avenger. And one may be enough to start the counterattack. Kurt Busiek writes while Brent Anderson illustrates.
