Issue(s): Avengers #251
Captain America returns to the Avengers, after his recent ordeal and aging at the hands of the Red Skull. The issue starts with a fun scene where Cap has to run through a Danger Room-esque scenario that was actually built for the Beast, and then wrestle Hercules, who is disguised as a robot, in order to prove (mainly to himself) that he's ready for active duty.
Starfox explains to the Scarlet Witch and Hercules that he never intended to keep his pleasure power a secret.
And the Wasp goes on a vacation and begins a romance with a guy who turns out to be the Paladin. They team-up to take out a low level villain called Baron Brimstone.
Some great stuff is brewing here under Stern. Art this issue is by Bob Hall, who did the West Coast mini, but i think it's looking better here, probably due to Sinnott's finishes.
Quality Rating: B+
