Marvel Flashback: The wedding of Quicksilver and Crystal
Avengers #127 (Marvel Comics)
Steve Englehart (w) Sal Buscema (a)
From September 1974 hails the wedding of the mutant Quicksilver to Crystal of the Inhumans in their hidden lair of Attilan. As you'd expect not all goes to plan despite the presence of the Avengers and the Fantastic Four.
Just like in your average TV soap opera even a wedding can't go to plan, except this involves a super villain about to be introduced to the world in the second Avengers movie, the bastard son of Henry Pym (Ant Man/Giant Man/Yellowjacket) Ultron-7!
Disgruntled minions, the Alpha Primitives who live in the underbelly of Attilan have been wound up to rebel by Maximus, the mad Brother of Black Bolt, King of the Inhumans.
And of course he's just a tool of Ultron and gets shafted as you'd expect by the mad artificial life form.
The action begins...
And concludes in Fantastic Four #150.
What does Ultron-7 want?
Oh to rule the world.
What else does your average super-villain want......
Two back issues worth tracking down!
