It's time to face facts, true believers – the '90s were awesome. The pouches were plentiful, the costumes were impractical, and Marvel Universe dentists made a fortune correcting damages caused by perpetually gritted teeth. Thanks to the power of nostalgia, though, what would once be considered extremely embarrassing can now be called extremely awesome!
With that in mind, we've pulled a Marvel comic from the not-so-modern era and broken it down, one righteous fact at a time! This week we're singling out WHAT IF? (1989) #55 by Len Kaminski and Craig Brasfield. Here's "What If the Avengers Lost Operation Galactic Storm?" by the numbers!
