Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at a shocking Avengers moment courtesy of Roy Thomas and John Buscema.
In Avengers #54, the Avengers are captured by the Masters of Evil and their new leader, the mysterious Crimson Cowl.
At the end of the issue, the Cowl reveals his identity, and it’s someone that the Avengers certainly were NOT expecting!
The reveal of Jarvis as the Cowl here is still one of the great comic book shockers (even though next issue, of course, explains that Ultron was the REAL Crimson Cowl, and he basically hypnotized Jarvis), and John Buscema absolutely NAILS the reveal.
That’s just an amazing job by Buscema on that cliffhanger – one of the iconic images of an iconic Avengers run.
