The Avengers: The Summons Of Psyklop
Here's the first part of a brilliant Avengers / Hulk crossover plotted by Harlan Ellison, then scripted by Roy Thomas.
In actual fact, the finished story is technically a non team-up, as ol' Jade Jaws spends most of this issue unconscious, while Earth's Mightiest Heroes don't make it to the second part of the tale in Greenskin's mag at all.
But Rascally sticks closely to Ellison's draft, ( seen in pre-FOOM mag, Marvelmania ) only really adding a bit of voodoo fun for Cap & Falc for no readily apparent reason, as well as a bizarre bit of dialogue where T' Challa begs off this month's adventure as he has pressing business back in Wakanda and Quicksilver, of all people, tells him that: None shall miss you more than I...
Oh, and there's a Captain Marvel in-joke. But there always is with Roy.
