    "Spectrums of Deceit!":
    Guest-starring Ms. Marvel and Thundra
    Like a loving husband would, Hank Pym finds a wonderful birthday gift for his wife Janet! It's a beautiful sparkling gem! Dr. Pym isn't concerned that the rare gem once belonged to another doctor...an evil doctor. But he should be! Through an unfortunate sequence of events, Doctor Spectrum (via the body of Janet Pym) walks the Earth again! The rejuvenated Dr. Spectrum swiftly knocks out Quicksilver, Wonder Man, and Iron Man; but the remaining avengers subdue him with ultraviolet radiation! The Avengers think the crisis is over; however, the wicked gem stays grafted to the Wasp's hand. After consulting the Master of the Mystic Arts, Earth's Mightiest Heroes learn that they must locate the former members of the Squadron Sinister to save their teammate! Tracking down Hyperion, the Whizzer, and the prior Dr. Spectrum...is that really a good idea? Let the blockbuster battles begin! First, Ms. Marvel, T'challa, and the Vision vs. Hyperion and Thundra! Then Cap, Wanda, and Hawkeye vs. the Whizzer! And finally Shell-Head and the thunder god vs. Dr. Spectrum! An outstanding annual! Cameo appearances by Doctor Strange, Clea, and Wong. Avengers Lineup: Beast, Black Panther, Captain America, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Thor, Vision, Wasp, Wonder Man, and Yellowjacket.
    Notes: The Squadron Sinister (not to be confused with the Squadron Supreme) previously appeared in Giant-Size Defenders 4. The Whizzer returns in Amazing Spider-Man 222 as the Speed Demon. Hyperion appears next in Thor 280.
