Avengers Vol.1 #196


A brand new villain, the Taskmaster, has turned the tables on the Wasp, Yellowjacket, and Ant-Man! The three insect-like super-heroes are prisoners inside the Taskmaster's training academy! The good news is that seven avengers are waiting outside the training compound, but the bad news...none of them know that their teammates are in grave danger! However, Earth Mightiest Heroes follow the ants, and the trail leads to the Taskmaster! Is the villain with the photographic reflexes ready to battle the Avengers? Choose wisely dear Taskmaster!
