That one could be one of the top5 of this list along with posssibly 145-146...

It interrupted Perez's exciting maiden voyage with Avengers.
It introduced a generic assassin that somehow proved better than aaalll the supervillains combined by penetrating Cap with a mere bullet to the heart. Deadly for normal people but it seemed farfetched and later seemingly ignored that it happened to Cap. (As if a bullet could fell Cap - oh the irony.) Fortunately Donald Blake was around. It was issue 145-146 iirc [may be one issue off].

> > I was inspired to ask this question after rereading my own personal choice, Avengers Unplugged 3. Black Widow and Crystal get dressed up in miniskirts and have a "girls' night out" at a male strip club called, uh, "Bimboyz." Coincidentally enough, it's hero night at the club, and at one point Crystal attracts the attention of a male stripper dressed as Quicksilver.
> > As a fantastic article on the Avengers Assemble website points out, the comic hits its nadir when Black Widow says "You go, girl!" to Crystal.
> > Avengers Unplugged as a whole was truly, horribly, abominably bad, and #3 get my vote for the worst Avengers issue ever.
> > What's yours?

> Vol 1 # 218
> The one with the kid holding a gun to his head on the cover.

Ah, the good old days when publishing on time, even if it meant some fill in story, was the priority. What I find amazing is that they made it a two issue fill in rather than rushing and editing the story down to a single issue.
