Major Spoilers Poll of the Week: Avengers Infinity War Edition

DISCUSSION
AVENGERS UNDER SIEGE
Roger Stern
John Buscema
Marvel

There are certain unwritten rules that apply to the Avengers:
The Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are a united and unbeatable Unit.
No intelligent foe would launch a direct assault on their Mansion
Jarvis, the team’s butler, is off limits to physical assault.
But Baron Zemo, master strategist and leader of the Masters of Evil, has no use for the restraints of society. Preying upon their emotional differences, he will divide and conquer the globe’s premiere super-team. Outsmarting their high-tech defense system, he will kick down their front door,. Harnessing the power of the world’s most vicious villains, he will stop at nothing to taste victory…including beating a helpless butler.

This is the story that breaks all the rules. You’ve been warned.

    The Power Rangers buy out will be interesting. Will the comics stay with Boom or move to IDW, and if they move will they join the Hasbro universe they’ve made? The show’s with Nickelodeon for another three years so that’s settled but will Hasbro pay there actors a decent wage?

    Also this isn’t the first time someone has bought Power Rangers, Disney owned it for most of the Oughts.
