Even An Android Can Cry,” The Avengers #58. A nearly perfectly executed story about the nature of what makes us human, done by Roy Thomas and John Buscema at the peak of their powers. I was 11 that summer, relatively new to reading Marvel, and it embodied so many qualities that few comics of the time did as well: the pure SF of a human android (perfect for the fan of Asimov‘s stories), a dash of diversity in the Black Panther, and the complexity of an ever-shifting group book.
