by Nesa Nourmohammadi
INCREDIBLE HULK #350 (1962)
Marvel's heavyweights, Hulk and the Thing, face off in INCREDIBLE HULK #350, an eye-popping, gut-busting battle royale from Peter David and Jeff Purves. Fans will find themselves questioning their loyalties as two of Marvel's most-likeable heroes turn New York into their own wrestling ring. Intriguing plot twists and cameos from Beast and Dr. Doom round out this well-crafted issue.
THOR: BLOOD OATH #3
This re-imagining of a Silver Age classic courtesy of Joe Casey and Scott Kolins finds the Avengers in dire straights. With Captain America blinded by his personal vendetta against Zemo and Thor announcing his resignation from the team, the Avengers need new blood to fill the missing void. Hawkeye joins the team, solidifying him as one of Marvel's elite and a definitive fan favorite. Don't miss the cliffhanger ending, that will leave you dying for more!
DAREDEVIL #49 (1998)
After time away from the Avengers, Hawkeye returns to the team only to find his old group now under the sponsorship of the U.S. government and working with the ever-difficult Henry Peter Gyrich. Can Clint adjust himself in time to help the team defeat Tyrak? Hawkeye's bravado provides a much-needed light-hearted touch to the heavy-handed adventure, making this issue a must-read!
MS. MARVEL #9 (2006)
In our women's division, Brian Reed and Mike Wieringo craft a triple threat match that will capture your attention, thanks in large part to solid storytelling and stimulating art. The already-complicated relationship between Ms. Marvel and Rogue gets strained further when another Ms. Marvel from an alternate reality enters the picture. Big explosions, attractive women and catfights? Yes, please!
WOLVERINE #51 (2003)
If these two characters were fighting in WrestleMania, then you know they would be in the main event! The rivalry between Wolverine and Sabretooth has never looked as intense and heated as it does in WOLVERINE #51. You could bathe in the blood these two men exude as the carnage flows freely. Cameos from Wolvie's fellow X-Men give this slobberknocker from Jeph Loeb and Simone Bianchi an added touch!
