In need of a bodyguard, the Owl springs Man-Bull from prison. Unfortunately for them, the Man Without Fear has other ideas. This run-of-the-mill DD adventure by Jim Shooter and Lee Elias is competent but lacks any real spark.
After losing a battle to the Grey Gargoyle, the Avengers must regroup before tracking him down for a rematch. John Byrne and Dan Green draw a fine Avengers, but this story from Roger Stern and David Michelinie is not on par with the era’s best work.

Angel, Ka-Zar and Zabu launch a desperate attempt to rescue the X-Men from the clutches of Sauron. Soon-to-be X-artist Paul Smith joins Chris Claremont for this strong concluding chapter. Plus, two backup stories featuring art by Michael Golden.
