The Kree Skrull War - part 2

Avengers #90
date: July 1971
writer: Roy Thomas
artist: Sal Buscema, Sam Rosen
rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and the weakened Vision battle the Sentry.  The Sentry escapes with the recovering Mar-Vell.  Meanwhile, Goliath (aka Clint Barton) goes looking for Yellowjacket in a mysterious jungle that sprang up in Alaska, and soon finds himself battling Ronan.  Wasp, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and the Vision show up and battle Goliath, who is under some kind of mind control from Ronan. Just when things couldn't get worse, Yellowjacket shows up, mutated into some kind of gorilla creature.

Still no Skrulls.  I'm digging this Avengers lineup that's solely characters that don't have books of their own, a rarity in this day and age.  Once again, I'm digging the creative team and I'm wondering where this is going.
