Weird how Wasp has been in all these issues since Pym came back but still hasn't "rejoined" the team. And Widow claiming she's no longer under the Soviet's brainwashing.

Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are taking a leave of absence from the Avengers since their powers are gone, but they show up in other things briefly in the interim. Here, they're just a Cap delusion though.

Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver have begun to regain their powers and, interestingly enough, the writers set up the twins connection and true origin to Wundagore all the way back here. lol at Wanda having a Lamborghini 330 GT out of nowhere for no reason. Some shameless product placement there.

Wanda had a Lamborghini because Jack Kirby was itching to draw one. Plus, Tony Stark paid the Avengers very well back in the day. I believe that Pietro drove a Porsche in at least one issue of The Avengers.

It just seemed really weird. Out of nowhere she's driving a Lambo up a mountainside racing Pietro. Like, lol.

And I haven't read anything regarding their pay yet, I didn't even realize they got paid. I thought mooching off his pent house was enough.

Back in the beginning, Tony donated use of the Stark Mansion in New York to the team and at some point gave the members a stipend for being on the team full time. He also kicked in for room and board, the services of the human butler Jarvis, all of those multi-million dollar Quinjets and all of their tech. The money came from the Maria Stark Foundation, set up to support the team in the name of Tony's late mother. Some members were independently wealthy (like Jan) or had other jobs to support themselves. But folks like Wanda & Pietro, Hawkeye and others were heroes by definition and either had no other skills or no time to use them, so Stark paid them.

Ahh okay. I knew he provided them living arrangements but not the rest. They're basically, sort of hired hands then.

To take on Mimic Professor X goes out in search of new X-Men. He first approaches the Maximoffs who are still in Europe, but they let him firmly know that they are Avengers through and through and will go down as Avengers as well, so they can't join the X-Men. Wouldn't be surprised if this issue is one of the reasons Marvel can use the twins.

Things are getting really crazy. Kind of weird to see a 7 member roster after it being just 4 just a few issues ago.

Hercules is just Thor without his hammer. Roy Thomas put him in because Stan Lee wouldn't let him bring back Thor.

Hawkeye has problems with everyone he meets apparently lol. Him and Hercules already butting heads. The twins, Pietro particular, have to be the adults...which is weird.

This is John Buscema's first issue. The art is now 100% improved.
I think the twins are 18 years old at this point. What do you think?

I was actually a fan John Heck's art in the first couple issues following #16 but after a while it did start to noticeably drop off, maybe around issue #21.

I'm not sure about the twins. I know everyone says they're around Cyclops' age around this time but as they're portrayed in the Avengers they seem older. I haven't really seen an indication of their age either way though, although they should obviously be over the age of 18 with them being able to country hop, live on their own, be on the Avengers, get paid, and drive Lamborghinis.

Mr. Fantastic and Thing made a cameo. The twins doing their best to keep Hawkeye and Hercules from killing each other still while trying to help the Pyms.

Is there any link between the Ultroids and Ultron? Did Dr. Pym use Ultroid technology when designing Ultron? Is the similarity in names just a coincidence?

Not sure, I'll have to wait till I get to the Ultron stories. That would be interesting but there's probably no connection in-universe. Thomas probably just liked the Ultroids name for robots and decided to make it Ultron.
