The coming of Wonder Man! Simon Williams would one day become a stalwart Avenger and Hollywood action star. But in his classic debut, he is a brilliant inventor turned dangerous foe for the Avengers – his ionic powers making him strong enough to go toe to toe with Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Giant-Man and the Wasp! But why has the newly empowered Wonder Man allied himself with Baron Zemo and his Masters of Evil? Can the Avengers find a way to shake his loyalty? And as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are lured to the Masters’ compound, will everybody make it out of this confrontation alive – or will a hero make the ultimate sacrifice? The epic story of Wonder Man begins here! It’s one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all! Reprinting AVENGERS (1963) #9.

32 PGS./Rated T… $3.99

A few thoughts:

The Avengers #9 is one of two Facsimile Editions coming from Marvel in March 2023. The other is the X-23 #1 Facsimile Edition, reprinting the 2005 issue. The exact sale dates have not been announced.

— Wonder Man, huh? Makes sense. He does have a Disney+ show coming next year. Not only that, The Avengers #8 Facsimile Edition — featuring the first appearance of Kang — is coming in February.

Obligatory Price Comparison: A VG, unslabbed copy of The Avengers #9 recently sold on eBay for $281. The Facsimile Edition, which features all the ads and whatnot, is four clams.
