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 great poignant Avengers moment from Stan Lee, Don Heck and…Kang?!?
The set-up is this – Kang kidnaps the Avengers and brings them to his time, where Captain America follows (by challenging Kang to bring him to the future, as well). Kang is dealing with some minor revolutionaries, which he is trying to use to get a princess, Ravonna, to marry him.
Ravonna and Captain America help start a revolution, but it is cut short when Kang’s forces are just too much.
Ravonna, then agrees to marry Kang, to save her people.
However, Kang’s men have a problem with this idea…
This leads to even more problems…
Kang is forced on the run, when they try to assassinate him. He is forced to come crawling to the Avengers for help…
Ultimately, Kang wins victory, and perhaps, in the process of showing himself to be fairly noble, he also might have won Ravonna’s heart…but this moment is not a happy one, for another assassination attempt on Kang occurs – which is stopped by, of all people, Ravonna!!!
Classic Stan Lee poignancy!
