    DuPont introduced polyester in 1950. By the 1970s, the fabric’s use had expanded so rapidly that it held the connotation of cheapness associated with leisure suits. So what I’m saying is: Hawkeye’s gaudy taste is amusingly canon to the character.

    Dialogue says halter tops, panel shows crop tops. Bullpen: Editor Archie Goodwin, Writer Jim Shooter, Penciller George Perez.

    According to Marvel, The Wasp "has sported over 400 different costumes".

    Didja Know… The Wasp has sported over 400 different costumes?

    Listen, don’t quote on that number, but if you ask certain people they’ll tell you it ain’t too far off, bunky! How? Why? Where does she find that much spandex? Those are good questions, but maybe only the Wasp herself knows for sure.

    It all started way back in TALES TO ASTONISH #44, when Janet van Dyne met scientist Hank Pym and a match was made in an ant farm. As Ant-Man, Pym needed a partner and Jan filled the bill, so the Wasp went a flyin’ and lo, the costume parade began! Seemed like every time readers glommed onto her, the Wasp was showing off a new look—in the 1960's alone, she sported nearly two-dozen different costumes!

    Some of her artists loved this about Jan. When Jolly George Perez became the Avengers’ artist back in the 1970's, he knuckled down and broke a plethora of pencils dream up delightful duds for the diminutive damsel, and to this day some of his designs are detailed as many a frantic fan’s favorites. Time will only tell how many new looks the Wasp will wing it through as an Agent of Wakanda, but between you and us, we can’t wait to see!

    Here's my Perez era Wonder Man. This costume is either loved or loathed by comic book fans! I'm in the 'love' category! I commissioned this kit and made sure every detail is exactly as portrayed in the very few issues that this costume was in. The base represents the 'purple ionic energy' that is the source of Wonder Man's power. I'm looking forward to all comic book fan comments on this portrayal!

    Comic Pros reveal the books that shaped them.

    AVENGERS #161 (Jul 1977) AVENGERS #181 (Mar 1979)
    If there's one writer in comicdom who can't be pinned down, it's Joe Casey. With stins on mainstream books like Uncanny X-Men, you'd think Casey would be happy at the Bit Two. But the scribe has an edgy side as well, as shown in his groundbreaking work on WildC.A.T.s and Automatic Kafka. In addition to launching WildStorm's latest superteen team, The Intimates, Casey's also taking a crack at the Avengers with Marvel's Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Check out the issue that shaped him!

    AVENGERS #161 "Beware the Ant-Man!" by Jim Shooter and George Pérez. "MY favorite single issue from when I was a kid. And it still holds up tfor me today. A great story that gave you a sense of the history of the Avengers, but was still modern in its execution. Fantastic characterization, and their greatest nemesis, Ultron, in one of his coolest appearance. NM Value: $9

    AVENGERS #181 "On the Matter of heroes" by David Michelinie and John Byrne. "Michelinie is such an underrated writer and this issue, where NSC Agent Henry Gyrich actually dictates teh Avengers' membership, is my favorite from his run. I loved how Pérez did a cover that was exactly like the Bryne splash inside. Or was it the other way around?" NM Value: $7

    From Greg Horn
    George is one of the artists who really impressed me when I was just learning to draw. He and John Byrne were the guys who laid a solid foundation for me as a comic artist and I owe them a debt of gratitude. My favorite Perez issues are Avengers 160 - 162. A great story with revelations about Wonderman's past and then an awesome battle with Ultron where he tries to transfer the Wasp's brain into Jocosta's body!
