My Grandmother bought us some comics to keep my brother and I quiet on a long trip and this was one of them.
It was full of soap opraey goodness (Why is the man in the flag suit so upset? Who is this amazing women in red and why is she yelling at the red faced man? Who is the mysterious asian woman?) and fantastic fights (I mean come on! panthers made of sound?? how cool is that?). The racial aspect of the story went over my head til i grew older, but I recognised it even then as something that needed "Avenging".
Of course, this lead right into the Wedding of Crystal and Pietro and a cross over with the FF and the Inhumans. Mission Accomplished Marvel!
