It’s AVENGERS WEEK! We’ve asked some of the top names in comics to pick their favorite stories. Here’s former Marvel editor Jim Salicrup — now editor at Papercutz!

The Avengers #57. “Behold… the Vision!” Roy Thomas, writer; John Buscema, penciler; George Klein, inker; Sam Rosen, letterer; Stan Lee, editor. Roy and John were firing on all cylinders, and like the classic Lee/Kirby Fantastic Four issues that introduced major new characters into the Marvel Universe (such as the Silver Surfer, the Inhumans, etc.), this issue introduced one of my favorite characters — who was always identified as one of the Avengers — the Vision. This was, and will always be, the definitive version of that character for me. And, boy, he sure knew how to make an entrance!
