Drawing Crazy Patterns – The Avengers’ Quinjet Crashing!

by  in Comic News Comment

In this feature, I spotlight five scenes/moments from within comic book stories that fit under a specific theme (basically, stuff that happens frequently in comics). Here is an archive of all the patterns we’ve spotlighted so far.

Today we take a look at the Avengers and their ever-crashing means of transportation, the Quinjet! Both crashes and other types of Quinjet destructions…

Enjoy!

We really should have known what to expect when it came to the Avengers’ personal airplane (designed by the Black Panther), the Quinjet, when it debuted in Avengers #61 (by Roy Thomas, John Buscema and George Klein)…


and was destroyed for the first time in the very next two panels…


In Avengers #103, Roy Thomas, Rich Buckler and Joe Sinnott have the Quinjet deliver the Avengers to Australia, but no further…


In Avengers #116, Steve Englehart, Bob Brown and Mike Esposito put the Scarlet Witch in danger while she is flying a Quinjet near a volcano…


David Michelinie, John Byrne and Dan Green gave the Quinjet an extended crash sequence in Avengers #187…




The Quinjet is no match for the might of Terminus in Avengers #257 by Roger Stern, John Buscema and Tom Palmer…


John Byrne and Mike Machlan treat the Quinjet poorly in Avengers West Coast #47…


In Avengers #360 by Bob Harras, Steve Epting and Tom Palmer, the Black Knight narrowly avoids being in a Quinjet crash…

Read more, including a notable usage during Avengers Disassembled…

During Avengerd Disassembled, Brian Michael Bendis, David Finch and Danny Miki had the Scarlet Witch make the Vision crash a Quinjet into Avengers Mansion…

Brian Michael Bendis, David Finch and Danny Miki poke a little fun at the history of the Qunjet always crashing in New Avengers #4 (before destroying it in ANOTHER way, of course)…




Showing he is in tune with the Avengers history, Joss Whedon has a Quinjet crash planned for Avengers 2…


Then again, when you let Daredevil fly your planes, I don’t think you can expect much but frequent crashes…


Okay, that’s it! I hope you enjoyed ’em! I know that there are other examples, but I was already way over five, so I stopped. If you have any ideas for future editions of Drawing Crazy Patterns, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com!
