Marvel Fanfare #58 (Vision & Scarlet Witch)
Issue(s): Marvel Fanfare #58 (Vision & Scarlet Witch story only)
As alien madness lands...
...Viz and Wanda still struggle to be accepted in their Leonia neighborhood.
Then a strange fog starts turning people into zombies and monsters.
Vision and the Scarlet Witch follow the townspeople to a local church.
They worry that it's Scarlet Witch's magic powers that have drawn the alien evil to their town.
The Scarlet Witch uses her powers to push the evil snake-thing into a magic pit.
The pit then disappears, but the Scarlet Witch is still worried that her own powers are what drew it to the town.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: This story is referenced in 1992's Marvel Super Heroes #10, and that story is said to take place prior to events in the second Vision and Scarlet Witch miniseries. So this should take place before their first house in Leonai is burned down in Avengers #252. I've therefore placed this in the 1983 era, after their first mini-series where they get the house in Leonia and before the Vision and Scarlet Witch become active Avengers again (they talk here like they're not currently part of the team). This story continues pretty much directly in Marvel Super Heroes #10. The main feature in this issue is a multi-part Shanna the She-Devil story that is covered in a separate entry.
Continuity Insert? Y (inventory story)
My Reprint: N/A
Really lovely artwork in this story. I'll have to search out a copy of this issue. It's unfortunate that Sandy Plunkett isn't a more prolific artist.
