Avengers #200 is one of those sprawling epics of an ‘anniversary’ issue that makes just about zero effing sense. It has a lot of action, and a lot of wondering what the heck is going on — true hallmarks of monumental superhero milestones. By the time you hit the big flashback that reveals how Carol “Ms. Marvel” Danvers got pregnant for only three days, your suspension of disbelief may have taken too many hits to recover.

But, it has George Perez on pencils, and a huge dinosaur bashing around New York City. That’s enough for a bicentennial! Roll ’em!

Collector’s Guide: from Avengers #200; Marvel, 1980.

This issue is NOT included in the paperback collection Avengers Visionaries: George Perez.
