Today in Comics History: Choose Your Own Ad-venger

The date: August 30! The year: 1992! And you have your choice of two possible earths: the one where the world blew up and killed everybody...

Panel from Avengers (1963 series) #355 (Late October 1992), script by Bob Harras, pencils by Steve Epting, inks by Tom Palmer, colors by Tom Palmer, letters by Bill Oakley

...or you could pick the one with the newfangled version of Avengers Mansion, the one that looks like the Contemporary Hotel at Walt Disney World!

Yep, the 1990s Avengers Mansion: the architecture that makes today's Avengers Tower look like a masterpiece of Frank Lloyd Gehry artisanship. And it's the reality where all the Avengers wore leather jackets.

Uh...I think I'll take the global apocalypse, please.
