Top 100 Summer Comics #62

I wanted to get away from the big names for a spell here. But that doesn’t mean I’m getting away from great single issues.

And though Quasar probably isn’t remembered for many, this was a great one. Self contained, I think this may be the best Quasar issue ever.



The Absorbing Man is one of the best Marvel villains – but he’s not in that upper echelon. I often make sports analogies here (guilty) but this is my favorite yet. When Acts of Vengeance came down, there were obviously some heavy hitters out there – Dr. Doom, Magneto, Ultron… they were spoken for quickly. The Absorbing Man… he was likely down the list, but man, what a steal. Like a late first round pick that just turns out to be the best of the whole draft.

The root of the story is simple enough – Absorbing Man goes at Quasar and absorbs (duh) the power of the Quantum Bands. Ruh-roh.
